8. Dealership Background
If you’re buying a new car, the relationship between you and the dealership shouldn’t be a strained one. Look online for reviews of the dealerships and their service department. A good place to start is with Google Maps or Yelp! because they offer reviews from customers. Another great resource is brand or model specific forums. Still not getting the information you’re looking for? Sign up on one of the forums and ask away – users are usually quite happy to share their experiences and some dealers even participate, helping to make you feel comfortable with your new car purchase.
A good place to start is the AutoGuide.com forums network.
