Sure, every single thing out in the market on Black Friday makes everyone giddy, hoping they will get good deals– especially with vehicles.

Do’s and Dont’s for Black Friday Car Shopping

While some specifically wait for this time of the year before they go car shopping, it may not always be the best option. So it is important to know how to deal with dealers before you actually step into the showroom on Black Friday. Here are some tips on what to do and what not to do on a Black Friday car shopping.

1. Don’t go window shopping

Instead, start as early as possible because Black Friday should be the actual day to buy, not browse for a car. Also, test drive ahead of time as it will be difficult to test-drive multiple cars on the day itself.

2. Do dig into the details before heading out

Dealerships and carmakers will undoubtedly bombard potential buyers with crazy deals. So make sure you review the ads carefully and get price quotes in advance.

3. Don’t assume you will get a dramatic discount

Not all dealerships and carmakers offer extra special discounts. In fact, the process of buying a car on Black Friday is no different, or no better, than buying a car at any other time of the year. So set your expectations low.

The Bottom Line

Black Friday can be very exciting especially for car buyers. However, it is important to be aware and not fall into dealers’ and carmakers’ traps during this busy time of the year. They might try to lure you into thinking you’re saving more. So you should be as cautious as you are as if buying a car any other time of the year.
