Dealer Fraud: Beware of No Haggle Dealers

On Behalf of | Aug 28, 2015 | Dealer Fraud

Some dealers advertise and promote themselves as “No Haggle” dealers. Meaning the best price is the list price, and there is no haggling or negotiating. This may sound good in concept. It may even give a false impression that the dealer is such a good guy that he’s giving his best price right from the beginning. But, in truth, it often is a red flag for Dealer Fraud.

No Haggle dealers are trying to attract a particular type of customer. A customer that generally speaking will be less inclined to ask questions and maybe even be a little timid.

No haggled dealer more than not are independent, used car dealers. The No Haggle snare enables them to avoid irksome questions about the vehicle’s history, condition and value.

Whenever you’re buying a vehicle, but especially when buying from a No Haggle dealer and/or a used car lot, also insist on seeing all of the dealer’s inspection and service records. Always get the vehicle inspected by a trust mechanic.

Do not rely on Carfax or Autocheck or any similar product in place of seeing all of the records and getting the vehicle inspection. Carfax and Autocheck reports are notoriously incomplete and there is a long delay from a negative event and its appearance in any report.

If the dealer will not give you all of the service records or allow you take the vehicle to a mechanic of your choice, then that is the best sign possible that you should not be doing business with that dealer.

If you think you have been the victim of Dealer Fraud, or any other kind of fraud, then you should contact a qualified attorney right away.
