Why Car Buyers Are Ditching Dealerships For Online Sales
 

 




CNBC
Oct 15, 2021

Many car buyers are moving away from traditional dealerships in favor of the internet. A new crop of online services promises price transparency, short transactions, easy financing, vehicle delivery and even the ability to return cars if it doesn’t work out. These online-only services are growing quickly, but selling cars online is remarkably complex.

Yeah and the prices on these online websites are waaaaay cheaper than the costs in my area. But I'm not ready to buy or initiate a car deal without seeing that mfer up front and in person. I used to be a carsalesmen and it used to blow my mind that people would set up their deals over the phone and then come in and buy it if they got approved. This was mostly people with bad credit who were really just happy they got approved. I've seen many good looking p.o.s.' sold that way

The convenience is not worth the carvana markup unless you're seriously opposed to haggling way better deals in person plus you'll have to refinance that bad boy asap w those rates

No point buying car right unless you have to. Every car I see it seems like it's 30% more than it should be. I Reddit threads with people selling 1995 f150 200k miles for 10-15k 2021 accords going for 45-50k it's nuts out here

I dont know enough about cars and I suck at haggling. My first car off the lot was purchased at drivetime and the salesman high five his coworker after the sell. I felt like such a sucker. This was like 2010. I just usually stick with purchasing my favorite car off the street but it's aging out.

for people who actually have a set and aren't anti social these will be great times to go to the dealer and buy...

in 2019 i bought my wife's brand new car $10,000 less than what msrp would be for her model vehicle fully stocked with features...it was the end of the month, the vehicle was still about 10 days out from being delivered from Japan...got the extended warranty on a deal too...got to learn to negotiate...

Bruh, have you been living under a rock? Do some post-Covid/ semi-conductor crisis research on the car market starting in 2020 and then tell me it’s a great time to go to the dealer.

My wife works for Toyota. Prior to the aforementioned crisis/ pandemic, there were 120+ cars on the lot. Today, there’s a mere 12. New vehicle prices, on average, are $10,000 above msrp and inventory has been cut in half or worse for most dealerships.

Honestly unless you are buying straight from the dealer on their official website, my advice would be do not do it. Like I said if not from official dealer it's better in person! Don't get catfished on products, face to face you can see who tf sold you it! not a robot

It’s crazy out here. Went to an Audi dealership last month. Only 3 cars on the lot total. Had 6 being delivered on that coming Friday, but 5 of them were already sold.

Carvana sucks…for a used 2015 subaru wrx w/52k miles they wanted me to put a down payment of $7k & my credit is in the mid 7’s…i go to the dealership & get a brand 2020 wrx w/ 3 miles on the dash with no money down….carvana is a rip off.

Then i try again for another car to put on Turo so i look at a Subaru Outback & same thing again they wanted a stupid down payment & i have good credit. I go to the dealership & it’s $0 down.

fu*k carvana

It's car shortage. I had to buy a car recently and I glad I did it, because now they added another 2-3K on everything from when I got mine. I overpaid slightly but it was before yet another price gouge. One of my friends was able to trade in a 9 year old car for enough money to not spend more than 2K to cover a 2020 Honda civic. It is crazy.

Used cars are crazy high because you can't find a new car right now. They were trying to sell me cars that were 1-4 years old with 30K miles on it for 30-32K. fu*k that sh*t. I just lucked up and got a EXL hybrid accord for 22K and made peace with it. It is a 2020. I'm hearing cars ten years old and older are going for mid teen thousands which is crazy to me.

Bruh I was thinking the same sh*t when I read his post. Now is not the time to buy a car if you don’t have to.

Cars and houses = most inflated purchases ever, why ? Supply and Demand, granted I think the supply “”shortage”” is a pseudo marketing gimmick that no one can really question.

I made a bad deal and financed a used bmw that was on its last legs, motor about to blow. Went to the Honda dealership and they gave me 9k as trade in value and put me in a 2022 civic. They didn’t even drive the bmw
