Top 10 Worst Times to Buy a Used Car
Just like there are best times to buy a used car, there are also worst times to buy, too. We’ve already listed the Top 10 Best Times to Buy a Used Car. So, we should consider the other side of the coin.
Just like there is a code to the best times, there is also a code to the worst times. For example, I discussed in the article on the best times to buy a used car that the end of the month was a good period because salespeople are struggling to make or break their quota and hoping to earn other incentives.
The code you need to break concerning the worst times to buy a used car depends on whether or not the dealership is already clogged with customers. If dealers are getting crowds of potential
buyers, then they are less inclined to making a deal. That’s because if a salesperson can’t make a deal with one customer, there are plenty of others with who a deal can be negotiated.
So, keeping that in mind, the worst season for someone to buy a used car is the spring. In February and March potential buyers are receiving their tax refund. Many buyers like to use the refund as a down payment for a car. Moreover, in April and May high school and college students are graduating and parents are in the market to buy their kid a car as a graduation present. So, dealerships are crowded.
Here is the list of the top 10 worst times to buy a used car. Remember the code and determine why these times are so bad.
