New Car Buyers' Checklist

Don't let your wallet get taken for a test drive!

Unlike going to a car dealer - which often leaves you with an uneasy feeling inside - more buyers are trusting the ease and transparency of Car Leasing Concierge's QUICK and EASY process that allows you to buy or lease any new car, truck or SUV without having to go to a car dealership.

Below are scenarios that you'll not only want to avoid, but will NEVER HAVE TO EXPERIENCE when you use Car Leasing Concierge!

Imagine sitting in a car dealership: the scent of new cars, stale donuts, burnt coffee and free popcorn mixes with the hustle and bustle for a sensory overload. Excitement is in the air! You're giddy and you're also anxious. You've picked out the model you want—and the dealer just happens to have it in stock. You think you've agreed to a price, and you think that only a stack of papers to satisfy your bank and your state's department of motor vehicles stands between you and a happy drive home in a shiny new ride.

But wait! The dealer still has plenty of opportunities to take a few more bucks from your already thin-feeling wallet. And while there are certainly some great car dealers out there, consumer confidence remains low.

A recent survey by industry auditing firm Total Dealer Compliance (TDC) found that 70% of adults surveyed said that they believe new car dealers are unethical. TDC's ultimate goal is to have dealers display a code of ethics in their showrooms, but the firm admits such a move would be a mere baby step towards improving the overall experience.

To help you navigate your way through the car buying process, Car Leasing Concierge has put together a list of unethical tricks we've seen dealers try to pull, some of which may really surprise you. No automaker is immune to these tricks since dealers operate independently—and they're likely to stay that way, as any effort to create showrooms run by automakers has been squashed by dealer lobbying groups in many states.

1. You're handling what? Dealer handling fees!

Money and power. Senior gangster in shirt and suspenders counting money and smiling while sitting at the table

Profit margins—the difference between what the dealer paid the manufacturer for the car and what they're charging you—are lower than ever on new cars. On some models-- especially less expensive cars or those that have sat around in a showroom for a long time-- the dealer may truly be making just a few hundred dollars! That could translate into a very slim profit for the dealer once the salesperson's commission has been paid out.

To make up for this, many dealers now charge their own, flat rate fee. It's sometimes called a handling fee, or processing fee, and in some markets it can be upwards of $800! Ostensibly, this fee is there to help the dealer recoup a few bucks for filing registration paperwork on behalf of you.

If you live in a metro area where dealer handling charges are the norm, it may be hard to avoid paying this hefty fee. That's why Car Leasing Concierge is such a breath of fresh air - no added fees means happy customers, and no dealer add-ons!

2. Sound the alarm! Dealer-installed alarm systems

Your new car may very well have an alarm system installed at the factory by the automaker. That alarm is probably pretty decent—but, if you find yourself parking in unsavory areas, you may consider adding an aftermarket alarm. And even if you don't mention this to the dealer, their finance department could offer one at a cut rate price.

As The Truth About Cars pointed out, an entire cottage industry exists that creates alarms that are, at best, simply ineffective. Depending on how they're installed, they could actually be a massive hinderance since dealers may not properly tap into a car's electrical wiring. If you're presented with an "offer" to buy one of these alarms, do your research.

Some unsavory dealers automatically install alarms on every car in their inventory! Run, don't walk, away! Even if you talk your way out of paying for the alarm, you're still saddled with a car that has been questionably modified in a way that very well could violate its factory warranty!!

Car Leasing Concierge will always listen to your needs - there is no pressure for an alarm system, unless it is something that YOU want for your new vehicle!

3. Protecting nothing: Absolutely useless add-ons

A dealer may offer you some genuinely useful accessories—quality rubber winter floor mats and window tint come to mind. But then there's pinstriping, rust-preventing undercoating, paint sealant, door edge guards, etc.. We've even seen fabric protection listed as a dealer-installed item on a car with leather seats!

Almost none of these features serves any purpose whatsoever, and combined they can add hundreds, if not thousands, to the manufacturer's suggested retail price. So while the dealer may knock $800 off of a car's sticker price, they're making that—and more—up by charging you $1,000 for a useless "protection package."

By that same token, some automakers use distributors to service certain regions. To bolster their bottom line, those distributors also add options. While this practice isn't as egregious as it used to be, you should still be very, very wary of anything not installed at the factory.

4. Read the paperwork

When it comes down to signing on the dotted line (since there is a mountain of paperwork ahead of you), read everything closely. We've heard (and experienced) no shortage of horror stories centered around sitting in the finance office. Check carefully to make sure that the vehicle identification number (or VIN) of the car you're signing on is the one you test drove and decided to buy. Read any disclosures carefully; dealers are required by law to tell you anything out of the ordinary they might know about the car you're ready to buy (maybe it has had some paint work done because someone scraped it on a test drive).

And that low interest rate may not be as simple as you think. Dealers and banks work closely together, so it's worth asking the finance team if they're getting a kickback—or a referral fee—by sending you specifically to the financial institution to whom you'll be writing (a lot of) checks to in the near future. Also, you can always ask what, on top of the principal and interest, you'll be paying for over the course of the loan since there may be additional charges not clearly spelled out in the terms.

Car Leasing Concierge helps you avoid all of the above by not only delivering your vehicle directly to you at your home or office, but also the necessary paperwork, so you don't waste hours of your day sitting in a dealer's finance office!

5: Above and (too far) beyond: Recommended service intervals

158807643

You've already bought your dream ride and, a few months later, it's time for an oil change. A quick look through the owner's manual (read it!) to the maintenance guide (also read it!) shows that, at 5,000 miles, you're due for an oil change and a tire rotation. But when you pull into the service bay, the friendly adviser whips out a chart of additional maintenance "recommendations." The dealer wants to change the differential fluid, flush the coolant, install new wiper blades, and-- our favorite-- replace the air filter. Suddenly a $50 visit has become a $500 wallet-grabber and you're left thinking that the cheap-to-maintain car you just bought is going to cost you a grand a year in basic maintenance.

Yes, these things do need to be done... someday. Today may or may not be that day.

To be certain, wear items like wiper blades and air filters do need to be replaced eventually, and nearly every fluid or oil should be periodically changed. But many dealers recommend service intervals that go well above what the manufacturer suggests—and automakers are cautious about suggesting service in the first place. We put a lot more trust in what a carmaker's engineers have put into a maintenance guide than what a dealer suggests. If you detect any hint of unscrupulous behavior, refer to your owner's manual.

We'll say it one more time: Read the manual. Follow the automaker's recommendations. They built it, so shouldn't they know how to service it?

The bottom line is Car Leasing Concierge saves you from the inconvenience of having to go to the car dealer and pay for all the over-inflated, game-playing prices and extra fees.

The 2017 Bugatti Chiron

IMG_2478.JPG

The best manufacturers incorporate the history of their brand into their new releases.

The 2017 Bugatti Chiron is a perfect example of paying homage to that which came before - in this case, the Bugatti Type 32, a racer almost a century ahead of its time built in 1923.

In each case, they are the ultimate in limited editions - only 500 2017 Chirons have been made, and only FOUR Type 32s were ever built.

Buy a New Car Without Going to a Dealership!

If it were possible and practical, most people would never set foot in a car dealership when purchasing a vehicle.

A national auto pollster recently surveyed 10,000 people in the U.S. about buying or leasing new cars, and the results show most consumers aren’t exactly fans of the standard car dealership experience. In fact, three quarters said if given the opportunity, they would consider making their entire car-buying process online-- including financing, price negotiation, back office paperwork and home delivery.

For many, purchasing a car at a dealership is too much of a confusing high-pressure process. It’s easy to see how it’s preferable to haggle over prices and options and review the fine print at one’s leisure in front of a screen rather than surrounded by salespeople and their “let me talk to the manager” games. After all, a classic negotiation tactic is walking away from the deal on the table, and walking away from an online offer is as simple as ignoring an email.

For another indication of the degree to which consumers don’t like the traditional car-buying experience, check out a recent survey conducted by another national auto ranking pollster. Of 4,002 consumers polled, only 17 said they like the current car buying process just as it is. The rest said they “want significant changes, particularly in the test drive, deal structuring, financing paperwork and service phases.” Many said they’d like to see the nitty-gritty of deals conducted online rather than in person.

For instance, consumers indicate that they would like to see a big change in the way they go about negotiating the deal structure. Of those who liked the idea of online deal building, over half, 65%, want the ability to start the negotiation on their own terms—preferably online—and 35% would like to remain anonymous until they lock in the deal structure.

Nearly three fourths of consumers, 72%, want to complete the credit application and financing paperwork online. The key factors driving this desire are to save time at the dealership (reported by 72% of those who favor online paperwork) and to have less pressure while filling out paperwork (reported by 71% of those who favor online paperwork).

Let’s not forget that one of the supposed purposes of car dealerships is to provide a place for consumers to kick the tires, test-drive vehicles, and (hopefully) get good insights and advice from employees. Nonetheless, there’s considerable pressure to change the often-maddening experience—to make it quicker, more transparent, less stressful, and less complicated—and become more open to online purchases.

"There aren’t too many things out there anymore that you can’t buy in an online way, and it’s really automotive that’s lagging pretty much every other industry out there until now."

Car Leasing Concierge is changing the way people buy or lease a new car without having to step foot inside a dealership. In fact, it’s a quick and easy process that nearly 90% of corporations and businesses use on a regular basis for their own employees!
