Let’s face it, buying a used car can be stressful. After all, there are a whole host of things that could go wrong—you could overpay, end up with a car you can’t truly afford or get stuck with a lemon of epic proportions. And, with all of your work and responsibilities, you don’t have time for that, right?
Fortunately, DriveTime is here to help. With a no-questions asked 5-day return policy, simple financing and easy, online approvals, you can rest assured that DriveTime has your best interest in mind.
But, with all the perks, there’s one thing DriveTime doesn’t offer—a used car salesman that you see in comedy movies and sketches. Here are a few types of salesmen you’ll never see anywhere near a DriveTime showroom.
The “Pushy” Salesman
When you’re on the hunt for a new car, the last thing you need is someone shoving their agenda down your throat. You don’t want to be threatened or intimidated into buying a car you really don’t want. Instead, be sure to take your time, get your budget in order and have all of your questions answered without any pressure.
The “Inappropriate” Salesman
Shopping for a used car is unpleasant enough without being belittled or humiliated. You don’t want to work with someone who is rude and inconsiderate. Look for the friendly employees at DriveTime because they won’t assume anything about your lifestyle or habits. Instead, they’ll focus on getting you into the car you want at a price you can afford.
The “Church Service” Salesman
Car shopping should be an enlightening experience, but that doesn’t mean you want to sit through a church service right there in the dealership! Find a dealer that doesn’t assume your religious affiliations or lifestyle. There is a time and a place, so attend church on your own time, okay?
The “Sleazy” Salesman
Oh no, he didn’t! DriveTime wants to sell you a car that is reliable and affordable, not one that has seen better days! To back up that promise, DriveTime offers an AutoCheck®Vehicle History Report with every car they sell. Don’t buy a car on its last legs without knowing what you’re getting into; buy a car with a history you can be proud of.
Shopping for a new car shouldn’t involve karate chops or cheesy pick-up lines. All of that hoopla won’t help you drive off the lot with a reliable car you can afford. You just want the facts and figures! Make sure your dealer gets to the point without the unnecessary explosions and graphics.
Whether this is your first used car or one of many, what you really want is a car you can count on. That’s why it’s important to stick with a dealer that doesn’t employ all the shady used car practices we see in movies and the media. It might be funny on the big screen, but it’s hardly hilarious in real life.
Used car salesman have gotten a bad rap over the years—mostly due to their poor habits, cheesy sales gimmicks and pushy agenda. The good news is, not all of them are like that. So find the dealer and the car that suits your needs, and avoid the car buying drama.
