No Haggle Used Car Buying __EXCLUSIVE__



For car shoppers, most of whom feel that the least-liked and probably most frustrating part about buying a used or new car is having to negotiate the deal, no-haggle car shopping has some appeal. When car dealers advertise no-haggle pricing, it often looks desirable to car shoppers who want to drive off in their new vehicles feeling as if they paid a fair price for their purchase and got a good deal in the process.

Many people feel that car buying should also be this simple. A firm sticker price enables people to shop easily for a car as they would shop for anything else. If the car price doesn't fit their budget, they can move on to a different vehicle or dealer.


Sometimes car dealers advertise specific cars with a no-haggle price, other times the dealer exclusively does business like this. Membership warehouse stores like Costco and Sam's Club often offer no-haggle price programs, as do organizations like the AAA or even some credit unions.


Dealer chains like CarMax are also well-known for advertising their no-haggle prices. At CarMax in particular, the salespeople are paid a guaranteed wage no matter which vehicle they sell. In other words, they don't get a commission based entirely on selling a vehicle for more money.


One very tangible benefit of no-haggle pricing is avoiding the common dealer tactic of bait-and-switch. This tactic mainly works by baiting buyers to come in with an advertised low price on a specific vehicle. The vehicle advertised is usually a basic model with no options, so naturally, the low price looks attractive.


In a no-haggle program, an advertised price is tied to a stock number or VIN on the quote. If you come in and say that you want the red Toyota Camry with a navigation system, then that's the vehicle you'll see. If the vehicle is gone, then it's often possible to get it ordered for the price advertised.


Many dealers who do this say that it's just less hassle and that it improves the car buying experience for customers. They know that car buyers are going to use all the various online tools to find out exactly what a vehicle is worth in their area.


In other words, some dealers and salespeople are just as tired of long haggling experiences as car buyers are. In addition, no-haggle car shopping lets dealers plan cash flow more readily because they know the price that each car in their inventory is going to bring.


Car buyers who really want to haggle with the dealer to get the lowest possible price usually believe that they can go into it and get a better deal than taking the no-haggle price. However, in some cases, these buyers may spend hours negotiating to end up with less than $1,000 off the Blue Book price.


Generally speaking, any dealer that advertises no-haggle pricing usually sticks with it. The reason for this is twofold. If they publicize no-haggle pricing but start negotiating later, they aren't advertising truthfully.


If a buyer who didn't haggle a price finds out that another shopper was able to reduce the cost by haggling, they're likely to become angry and report the dealer through review sites or the Better Business Bureau.


Furthermore, other shoppers are expected to come in and haggle, which would render the dealer's advertisement of no-haggle prices pretty much worthless. Most dealers who identify as no-haggle also have policies against haggling, so if you hear from someone that they haggled at a no-haggle dealer, it's usually best to be a little suspicious of it.


Ultimately, the question comes down to whether buying from a no-haggle dealership will get you the best price or not. If the price of the car is much more than what you could potentially pay if you got it from a traditional dealer, then it's probably better to skip it.


However, it's also true that some car shoppers are willing to pay a higher price to simplify the car buying process. On the other hand, if you're a car shopper on a budget, it's probably not worth it to you to pay several thousand more for a vehicle that you could potentially pay a lot less for at a traditional dealer.


If the price at a no-haggle dealer is only some hundreds over that of a traditional dealer, then it probably is worth it to many car shoppers. Still, some shoppers may be better served by traditional car dealerships with full-on haggle capacity in place.


Another area where the no-haggle experience can vary is with a used vehicle versus a new one. For example, one customer detailed his experience in shopping for a new car where he asked for the best deal from both a no-haggle dealership and a traditional one. The former offered $600 off the MSRP while the latter offered $1,800 off. When he tried to get the no-haggle dealership to meet it, they insisted it was their best price. The problem was, it was precisely the same new car.


However, used cars can be a different experience altogether. The reason is that it's not as easy to find two used cars that are the same in your area. In another example, the customer finds two used vehicles of the same year and model.


One is a non-certified used vehicle with 28,000 miles, and the other is a Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) vehicle with 27,000 miles. The dealership with the CPO car is a no-haggle dealership and has it priced at $29,500. The dealership with the non-CPO car has it priced at $28,700 and is willing to go down to $28,000. Even though the CPO car is $1,500 more, it's also being sold by a branded dealership and has a factory-backed extended warranty attached to it. That, and the 1,000 fewer miles on it adds value and, in effect, makes it the better deal.


No-haggle car shopping offers competitive pricing and makes it easy to compare prices with other dealerships. The buying process is quicker, and therefore, for some customers at least, less stressful.


In the end, whether dealers who promote no-haggle prices are better depends mostly on your situation. Whether you're looking to buy a Hyundai, Honda, Subaru, Chevy, or some other vehicle, it is altogether possible that you can find a lower price and more value at a traditional dealership, then you might skip the no-haggle experience. However, if haggling is your worst nightmare when it comes to buying a car, then you might be willing to pay a higher sale price to skip that part.
