Which Dealer Add-Ons Should You Buy?When buying a new car, you'll be presented with several add-ons that can be purchased for an additional price.
These items will be shown to you by the finance (or business) manager after you've agreed to purchase the vehicle.
Many dealers make a good portion of their profit selling these add-ons (such as extended warranties, service plans, gap insurance, and paint/fabric protection).
There are only a few add-ons that you should consider purchasing - all the rest are pretty much useless.
The ones worth considering are:
- Extended Warranties
- GAP Insurance
The following may be worthwhile for some, but not most:
- Pre-paid Maintenance Plans
- Wheel Protection
- Low-Jack Anti-theft device
- Paint Protection
- Fabric Protection
- Window Etching
- Car Alarms
