There are a lot of dealerships here in Cincinnati. In fact, there are a lot of Chevrolet Ohio dealerships across the state, and even some in Indiana that you can choose from. But how do you know that you are buying from a GOOD dealership, and what is it that makes a dealership good? Is it the price tag on the car you want to buy that persuades your decision, or perhaps it is the smiles that greet you warmly as you walk into a showroom.

At McCluskey Chevrolet, we pride ourselves on being a reputable, honest, and fair-priced dealership in Cincinnati. For that reason, we thought we would share with you a few tidbits on what makes a car dealership great, and how to pick out the good from the bad.

What to Consider when Choosing a Dealership

If you walk into a dealership and have a bad feeling in your gut, then chances are you should run the other way. If the showroom feels stuffy and unwelcoming, then it probably is. Look for a dealership that makes you feel comfortable, and like your needs matter. What you have on your wish-list should be the top priority of every sales man or woman you work with, so if you feel bullied or pushed into a direction you aren’t comfortable with, turn the other way.

Check out a few other tips to look for when choosing the place to purchase your next vehicle.

  • Friendliness of staff: If the staff isn’t happy, you likely won’t be either.
  • Positive online reviews of dealership: Look online at reputable sites like Dealer Rater, and check to see what other customers liked or didn’t like about a dealership
  • Scope out the inventory: A large inventory means a successful dealership, which also means happy customers.
  • Amenities: While you won’t be staying overnight, you will be getting your vehicle serviced at the dealership quite a bit. Ask for coffee or a soda, and see if they offer free Wi-Fi. Dealerships that go the extra mile with amenities, will likely take care of you when it comes time to purchase a new car.
