Full Answer

Dealers prey on novices and pushovers. By appearing confident and knowledgeable, you immediately show the car dealer you aren't vulnerable to swindling. Prior to buying a new Volvo truck, research the average prices, and consult sites like Kelley Blue Book and Edmunds.com for the most up-to-date and fair market prices. Check the resale value of the truck model you seek. A truck with high resale value helps you save money later, especially considering that car value depreciates up to 20 percent as soon as you drive it off the lot. Always haggle with the dealer. Even if you think the asking price is fair, counter with a lower but still reasonable offer prior to settling on the price. Provide printouts of the Kelley Blue Book's fair market price to help you coerce the dealer into lowering the price to a more reasonable figure. Check your credit in advance. If you’re taking out an auto loan, your interest rates depend on your credit history.
