You’ve probably heard a lot of tips about the car buying process. Odds are some of them are not actually true. As your Dodge dealership in CT, we here at Executive Dodge Jeep® would like to let you know about some of the well-circulated car-buying myths.

Shop on Rainy Days

This may be the quintessential car-buying myth, as trite as it is untrue. It is understandable why it persists. Who would want to car shop in the rain? The theory is no one. An empty lot is worth a bit of rain right? The answer to that question ends up being irrelevant. Rainy days are actually more popular because everyone thinks they’ll be less popular. In truth, the best time for you to come in is whenever you want.

Closing Time

Similarly, the myth that closing time is the best time to catch the sales team winds up being a snipe hunt as well. At Executive Dodge Jeep, our goal is to best accommodate our customers, whether that’s right as we come in, or right before we leave. It doesn’t matter what time you come in.

Surprise Trade-Ins

This is a myth that almost doesn’t even make sense in the modern age. The tactic is to withhold the fact that you have a trade-in from the dealer until the price for your 2018 RAM 1500 or Dodge Charger has been finalized, then spring it on us at the last minute. Not only is this completely unnecessary, it’s absolutely avoidable. You need only visit our website to get not only the prices of our vehicles, but also a market estimate of your trade-in before you even see a salesperson!

We look forward to helping you with your new or pre-owned purchase soon!
