There is a lot of information out there about buying cars not all of it is actually helpful. We here at FIAT of Winter Haven, your source for new FIAT cars near Auburndale, FL, want to help you wade through some of those myths.

Shop on Rainy Days

The vast majority of people are not excited to be caught out in the rain. With car dealerships being largely outside, it stands to reason that most people won’t want to shop for a car on a rainy day.

If this sounds to you like a savvy way to beat the crowd and maybe even find a desperate salesperson, we’ve got some bad news for you. Not only is this a myth, but the reality is actually the exact opposite. More people are motivated to come due to the “promise” of fewer people coming.

O. Henry would be proud.

Shop Near Closing Time

If you wait until the dealership is about to close, you will find a sales team ready to do anything to get home. Sorry, but this isn’t true either. At FIAT of Winter Haven, we are always on and always ready to provide you with the service you need. It doesn’t matter what time you come in because we are never out to get you in the first place.

Surprise Your Dealer with Your Trade-Ins

This also plays into the untrue image of the nefarious car dealer. It suggests that you should wait to get the best deal for your 2018 FIAT 124 Spider finalized before telling the sales clerk about your trade-in. It is believed that if you are “up-front about it,” you’ll get a worse deal on the new car or less for your trade-in. Not only do we know about this “tactic” but it is completely unnecessary. In fact, we encourage you to check the value of your trade-in on our website beforehand.
