Here at Executive Kia, we know that drivers are trying to get the best deal when they’re browsing our selection of new Kia cars. Unfortunately, some of them try to get a deal by listening to some old car buying myths that just won’t help at all. Fortunately, our automotive experts are ready to debunk those myths and help you find a vehicle that you’ll love at a price point that you can afford.

With so many myths out there, it can be hard to know how to get a good price on your vehicle. One common myth is that hiding your trade-in until the end can help you save money. The dealer tells you how much the car costs and then you tell them about your trade-in. This doesn’t help because your trade-in has the same value regardless of when you bring it up. Just value your trade-in on your website and know how much it will be worth beforehand, and let your dealer know that you plan to turn it in.

Some drivers also think that they should bring their own financing. It’s possible that this may work out for a few drivers, but for the most part there’s no reason to do this. Our Kia finance department works with a variety of partners to find the right loan for you. Plus, we’re usually offering special lease and financing offers to drivers who qualify.

Drivers who think that shopping for a car on a rainy day is a good idea are also misinformed. The idea is that the dealership will be empty, so dealers will be more inclined to sell to you. In reality, the dealership might still be full of people, your dealer may not be so desperate, and you’ll be soaking wet.

So visit our Kia dealership serving Branford, CT and find the new vehicle you’ve been looking for. We have a model for every budget, whether you need a dependable car for your commute or the perfect family vehicle. We hope to see you soon for a test drive!
