Recommended Podcast: Deal Talk
This week, I wanted to alert you to a podcast that I think every serious car shopper should listen to on a regular basis.
It's called Deal Talk Podcast, and it's hosted by Geoffrey Jerome Veit, a 35 year veteran of the automobile and motorcycle industry. Each week he talks about a different topic, and he's got over 140 podcasts archived, which cover just about every facet of car shopping.
I've listened to a few of his latest podcasts, and he gives out geniunely good, honest advice.
You can send him questions which he tries to answer in his latest podcasts. If you're a podcast listener, subscribe and let me know what you think of Geoffrey's show.
3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum MoneyThe key to getting the best deal is to gather price or lease bids from as many local dealers as possible. Then shop that best price around until no one can beat it. Here are the steps:
Step 1 Get Prices From My Trusted NetworkSelect the vehicle you're interested in to see if there are local dealers in my network who will provide you with their best upfront price. You will get direct access to an internet sales manager who you can further negotiate with online (no need to visit dealership).
Step 2 Get Prices From TrueCar / CarsDirectTrueCar, and CarsDirect are my top 2 online price quote recommendations. These services show you pre-negotiated prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually pretty decent. But remember, you can still negotiate further.
Step 3 Complete my ChecklistFollow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
