The experienced and highly trained staff at Fields Chrysler Jeep® Dodge Glenview understands that buying a new or pre-owned car or truck can make even the most confident person nervous. We have noticed that many car-buying myths seem to be passed down from generation to generation. Unfortunately, these misnomers can make purchasing a vehicle more difficult than necessary. As a leading Chrysler dealership, we want to help everyone in the Evanston area by doing our best to debunk a few of most popular of these unhelpful myths.


Myth #1: Car salespeople are untrustworthy


Movies and TV love to push the stereotype that you shouldn't trust a car salesperson. While it might be good for an easy laugh, it just isn't true. The sales team at Fields Chrysler Jeep Glenview treats all our customers like they would like to be treated: fairly and with respect. Our aim is to make a customer for life, to do that we always find the perfect vehicle for your needs.


No high-pressure sales tactics, no upselling, no confusing terms, just straight talk and honest treatment. We cannot vouch for other car dealerships near Evanston, but as a Jeep dealer serving Chicago, IL, we are built on trust and customer satisfaction.


Myth #2: Save money by buying a car on a rainy day


This age-old myth is a little more light-hearted, but still, it's a myth. Rain or shine, we will always try to get you the most car, truck, or SUV for the least amount of money. We also offer an amazing array of national, regional, and seasonal specials and incentives, so always check our website before you visit.


Myth #3: Hold off on mentioning a trade-in


No matter the model of car you bring in, whether it's a Jeep Cherokee or RAM 1500, you should always be upfront about your trade-in when you visit our dealership serving Evanston, IL. Despite the fact your parents might have told you to hold off to the end of the deal to get the best price, it just isn't the case anymore.


Myth #4: Take It or Leave It


Ultimatums are not always such a great idea in life. Whether you are trying to build a personal or business relationship, telling someone to "take it or leave it" rarely does anything but create bad feelings all around. You might have heard that showing up with a cashiers check for a specific amount and saying, "I'll take that car and this is what I will pay" is a good car-buying ploy. Like most Dodge dealers serving Skokie and the Chicagoland area, we can tell you it's actually a bad idea. The bottom line is that both sides need to have flexibility. You can do some research online before visiting so that you have a range of prices you are comfortable paying. Then our experienced sales team can find you the right car at an agreeable price.


At Fields Chrysler Jeep Dodge Glenview, we believe it's best to ignore the myths you've heard about buying a new or used car, truck, or SUV. It's better if you come with an open mind and build a relationship with us. We train our sales staff to find you the best deal possible without high-pressure tactics. Come visit us at 2800 Patriot Blvd. in Glenview, IL and take a test drive today!
