New car buying used to mean slogging around multiple dealer lots and falling prey to high-pressure salespeople early in the process. Today, however, you can (and should) get multiple new car quotes from local dealers over the Internet before you even step one foot on the lot.
Dealer's today understand that consumers are Web savvy and that they are likely not the only one receiving a quote request. For that reason, you're more likely to receive a truly competitive quote. Some dealerships are still on a learning curve when it comes to responding to online quote requests. You may get slow responses from some or canned form letters by e-mail from others. Still, more and more dealers are stepping up to car shopping's cutting edge and are ready and waiting for your quote request. It pays to surf the Internet and find the best deal!
