At McKevitt Volvo Cars in San Leandro, we understand that there is a lot to know about buying a car. However, our customer service, sales, and finance teams will do whatever it takes to make the car buying process clear and transparent. With that in mind, we’d like to dispel a few of the myths that you may hear as it relates to getting a good deal on your next vehicle.

Myth 1: You Can’t Get a Price Quote Without Visiting the Dealership

You may have heard that dealerships don’t like to give price quotes by phone or email. However, our salespeople are always willing to provide you with whatever information you need to make an informed purchasing decision. This is true, regardless of how you decide to reach out to us.

Myth 2: It’s a Good Idea to Shop During Periods of Inclement Weather

Many people believe that they are more likely to get a better deal if they shop when it is raining or snowing outside. However, the truth is that most shoppers negotiate and close deals online or by phone as opposed to at the dealership itself.

Myth 3: Withhold the Presence of a Trade Until the Last Minute

Many car buyers feel as if they gain a tactical advantage by concealing that they have a trade. The truth is that your current vehicle is going to be worth roughly the same amount whether we appraise it before or after you make a purchasing decision. Generally speaking, a used car’s market value is based on little more than its condition, mileage, and age. We encourage you to use our online trade estimate tool to understand better how much you can expect to get for your car, truck, or SUV.
