2. Why should you pay the doc fee. When the salesman gets the vibe that you are really 100% going to buy the car, they will give out their spiel to make you pay for the doc fee. Wait until the very end when you are about to sign the papers, ask them to take off the fee or you’ll walk. Be ready to walk out, as in literally.
3. Switching cars – don’t let them do that to you. They know that you already have made a lot of research on the cars. They want to divert your attention with all the flashy words.

5. Trade-in Game. They are prepared for it so don’t try to hold the trade until the very end.
6. Don’t buy on the first trip. Buying on the first visit will usually end up in regrets. If you see a car that you like, give it time to think about it. Go home and research. Compare with what you already thought you want to purchase.
7. Don’t show too much interest. Leave a trail of mystery so you’ll have the leverage to still bargain the price. If you show too much interest and enthusiasm they will pump you with more perks ending up getting more money from you.
