Do used car dealerships charge too much?
Yes and no. Fees charged by your state or local government are mandatory and cannot be disputed. Fees charged by dealers are allowed by law but must be uniform. They cannot charge one fee for one customer and a completely different fee for another. You could ask a dealer to reduce the price of the vehicle by whatever amount the fee costs.
Do all dealerships sell used cars?
Most dealerships endeavor to sell the used cars within the market rate because buyers are more aware of the average price of the vehicles they are interested in buying. If you would like to buy the car at the same price as dealers, you should consider buying a car from online auction sites like Auto Auction Mall.
Can an used car dealership sell legally sell it?
Though a used car dealer isn’t technically supposed to sell a car without the title, it does happen. In some cases, a dealer simply takes possession of the car and displays it on the selling lot even though they’re still waiting for the title to receive the title in the dealership’s name.
Do dealerships ship used cars?
Yes, your car dealership can ship a car to another dealership. No car dealership can do business alone. If you want to get the most out of business opportunities available out there in the market, you will need to partner with the other car dealerships in your local area.
Do car dealers charge sales tax on used cars?
Yes, you must pay vehicle sales tax when you buy a used car if you live in a state that has sales tax. However, you do not pay that tax to the car dealer or individual selling the car. You will pay it to your state’s DMV when you register the vehicle. The state where you pay vehicle registration fees is the one that charges the sales tax, not the state where you made the vehicle purchase.
Do dealerships take damaged cars?
Sure. They may not give you very much for it, but they’ll take it. Many dealers, especially new car dealers, will only sell used cars in reasonably good shape, so they’ll promptly sell the “undesirable” to a broker. Or to a scrap yard.
