How Car Dealerships Rip You Off (The Truth)

  • In this video I explain exactly how car dealerships rip you off. A lot of car dealerships implement the four square method, which is just a simple way to make you think that you're getting a deal.

    Car dealerships are a very sophisticated network of stores that know how to separate you from your money. Not all dealerships rip you off, but the ones that use the four square method do.

    Don't get ripped off on your next car purchase and watch this video until the end.

    I agree with 8/10 of what was said in this video. First off great job bro on the video it will be helpful to alot of people. I work for a dealer in service and have worked for a couple dealers. Lets say 8-10 dealers, their real money makers are in service not sales or add-ons. Yes new cars dealers are paying a lot for and can LEGALLY only "adjust" the price higher a small margin. One thing I will need to disagree on is the price point of a car is actually based on location. Meaning if you live in a smaller town lets say in GA your car price will most likely be cheaper then a new car in LA. A SRT scat pack in Macon is 40,000 and where im at in Cali its 52,000. Of course they will only give you a small amount for your car on a trade. If the car needs tires, brakes or whatever the dealer puts it on the used car before the sale. The dealer then adds that price onto the car. The customer will beat the dealer down on price of that used car so yes they make more on a used car then new BUT that amount gets smaller when more things need to be put into that car. Besides that most salesmen are liers and will tell you anything for a sale. Bro keep up the great work on these videos, promise not trying to bash your work on video bro!

    Ever wonder, how a month or two down the road with your new/used car, you start getting these warranty offers? 9 out of 10 those are scammers. Know how they get YOUR address, make, model, year car right, and sometimes the VIN number? NOT from the DMV, NOT from the bank or CU.. they get that info from the guy in the back at the dealership! They sell that info to these scammers, and you're harassed for months, sometimes years! Tell people THAT!

    Don’t say you should still trade in your car. You can sell your car 2-3x more in a private party sale compared to trading it in. Not good advice. I think the poor guy hates all dealers now because he probably got the rip off of the year 😂

    We don't do none of these "tricks", I work at a fixed priced dealership, that's the car and that's the price, if there's one cheaper elsewhere then we will price match it as well, standard warranty applies with the cars. With trade inns we show them what there car is worth and even what they sell for (something customers can't see only dealerships), if you are not happy with the trade in price then hey, don't trade it in.

    The best part is when they advertise for x amounts on a used car and then tack on an additional 1000 in "dealer fees". At that point I'll look on craigslist

    Fortunately, I lucked into going to an actual honest dealership. When I asked the salesman if he could come down a little on the price he said, "Brother, I would love to, but Ford won't let us move the price, not even a penny. They want everyone to get the same great deal so they set the price as low as they can when it comes out of the factory. But what I can do is try and get you some upgraded floor mats. How's that sound?" Well, it sounded too good to be true, but Shawn came through on the mats and I drove it home the same day. Had to wait a few hours for them to put a special undercoating on the car that cost me less than 200 bucks! I honestly don't know how that place stays in business.
