When it is time to buy a car, you will find there are two ways to go about it. You can visit your local Ford dealer where you have your choice of a new car, a certified pre-owned car, or a conventionally used vehicle. The other approach is to buy a used car from a private seller. You cannot buy a new car or a CPO car in Wayne from a private seller, which leaves used vehicles only. Although you may find buying privately less complicated, there are reasons why you should buy any car from a recognized dealer.
A dealer’s reputation in the community is extremely important. With competition in the business being what it is, those dealers that offer superior customer service stand the test of time. If you buy a car from a dealer, the dealer is there should you experience a problem. On the other hand, when you buy a car from a private party, it is yours, problems and all. A private party will not back the vehicle after the deal has been done.
Not everyone is in a position to pay cash for a car. If you buy privately, the seller wants cash, so don’t expect to be given any financing assistance. When you buy from a Ford dealer, if you need financing, you will be given numerous options. Many lending companies refuse to finance a private purchase; they know from experience that only a dealer can value the car properly.
A dealer can offer options that a private seller cannot. Anyone can buy new wheels for their car or install a better sound system, but only a recognized dealer can offer an extended warranty. A dealer goes to great lengths to get and keep your business; a private party will not.
