Why Women and Minorities Need to be Careful When Buying a Car

Studies have shown that some dealers tend to use price discrimination against women and minorities.

In some cases, women and african-american shoppers were quoted prices up to 40% higher than their white male counterparts.

Dealers assume that women and minorities aren't as well-informed about the car buying process and that they are less likely to comparison shop other dealers.

Obviously, there's a lot of stereotyping going on at dealerships and the only way to counteract this is to be an informed consumer.

Make sure to read through our tips and articles and get a good idea of how to arm yourself against these types of dealer tactics
