The whole negotiation part was scripted I would say. Frank was too cool when the he got the first offer. In my country, I would get chased away for offering half the advertised price :D If the asking price is too high, I'd rather walk away than making an offer. May be I'm losing my options, but I'm not comfortable making a stranger uncomfortable just to make a point.
Thanks for the info.
Can visitors for a long stay register a car in the us m, as buying a car is cheaper than renting for 4 months, if not any ideas to drive my owned car as a foreigner (visitor) with only my IDP without breaking the law?
1500 as the start is actually really good. The value of the car is around 2000. Thats not a low ball price even considerate than hes high ball the car selling it for over 2800, and you still got to fix the problems coming WITH the car.
People are too worry about offend the seller. You should always try to throw a reasonable low offer so you can work around it. People are selling it for a reason, they are trying to get rip of the thing they are selling the faster way possible. You should take advantage of that situation. You should always keep your ground with your offer dont be scare of walking away. YOU DONT TO HAVE TO BUY THE CAR IMMEDIATELY.
Why do people feel sorry for Frank? In my opinion, his car is worth $1500 at most. And it needs work done to it! Just because it's a Jaguar doesn't mean it's worth twice as much. It's a old used car that needs work.
That was seriously boss how you negotiated like that. I wish I would have done that with my car! Good job, you got a great deal.. I always wonder just how much a seller is willing to go down on the price..
Some people just don't know basic economics. Just look at this comment section for example. How they really take serious the owner's pricing of the car of $3000. That is seriously overpriced and something economists like to call the endownment effect. For example, lets switch roles and say the seller was buying, would he really think the car is worth $3000 now?
Nice bro I give you props he was asking for 3 G's and you got it down for less then 2g's nice first time I bought a car it was a G35 Nissan Infiniti with speakers and custom system with 210,000 miles and they wanted $3500 for it the best I got him down to was 3 G's only drove it for 20,000 miles and then I had a blown valve seals smh.
Chris has good negotiation skill. Now I would argue lowballing isn't necessarily bad. Everyone wants a good deal, I started negotiations for my trailblazer at 2000 for an easily (when fully fixed) 4000 dollar car. The act of low balling I wouldn't say is the issue, it's more the act of trying to basically scam someone. if you offer to buy a 2500 dollar car for 1000 bucks that's not lowballing that's just straight up a scam to anyone who takes it. Even with parts and labor into the vehicle 1000 dollars for an easily 2500 to 3000 dollar car is way too cheap. I'd say try and be fair, but don't overprice yourself imo. as for your actual bargaining, wonderful as always chris!
EDIT: I wanted to mention this by way. A good tip to people buying vehicles, tell them on a final offer (IF THIS IS TRUE) "It's all I've got on me". Now IF you have more money DO NOT LIE. My truck I walked in with 2800 dollars, that's all I was going to pay no matter what. IF you are offering all the money you actually have then it's perfectly fine to say this. Often times a seller will take these deals not only because of having cash in hand but also it's a hassle for a person to either go to an ATM to get more money, or in this case with dealing with someone making a serious offer and the vehicle has been on the market a while it sometimes will cause them to fold and take the money even if it's not quite the amount they wanted
Now that’s how to negotiate 👌
One of the best negotiating tactics is to NOT get emotionally attached to whatever it is you’re looking at buying... stay fairly firm with your offers and just walk away if it doesn’t work out. But like you saw, the guy changed his mind when Chris was about to leave which will often occur.
lmao the purchase made me SO HAPPY! when i saw that guy stop you as you were driving off LOL i had to pause the video in excitement! thanks for the video chris. I've printed out the sheet and i am in the process of buying my first car!
Lol “ripped him off”. You realize how much work the car needed to get into decent condition? I gave him a fair deal which is why he agreed. No one steals jaguars around here. That’s called negotiating and finding the true value of something and not overpaying. Something most people can’t do.
Hey ChrisFix. First let me say how much I appreciate what you do for us and the knowledge you impart. This is where I ask for more. How would your inspection and negotiations change if you were to buy this car from a local used car dealer, or would you change anything? And for those of us without your mechanical skills, what do you think of taking the car to the actual dealership for a pre-purchase inspection? Thanks again.
Dealers are “experts” at this game so it is harder. They also have a legitimate overhead to run a business so it costs them more. With that said, you know they got the car at or below trade in value so if you give them over trade in $500-1000 you can sometimes get a deal. Sometimes they know they will get a lot more and won’t sell it but other times they want volume so they will. Dealers also know the tricks to hide stuff like head gasket leaks. It even happened to me! My dad got a PT Cruiser from a dealer for my sibling and the engine blew up and I took it apart to find saw dust sealing the head gasket.
I have a doubt, I'm planning on buying a suv, I saw this car everything is well maintained, but the issue is it has driven 100,200 km, so my question is, is it worth it or will it have any problems in the future, does miles actually effect the car, btw the car was company maintained also, someone please help. Thank you.

As a child, there was a portrait in our family home in Paris that I always loved. Today, it’s known as Maya with Doll – but to me it was just a portrait of my mother, albeit a remarkable one. “Your grandfather was a painter,” she would say, whenever the subject of the canvas, one of many that hung around the house, came up in discussion. It was only when I began school, and whispers about my heritage started to follow me, that I realised what an understatement that was. My grandfather was far more than a painter. He was the defining figure of 20th-century art – and, as I would learn later from years of academic study, a true genius. It was a revelation that would shape the course of my life in many ways. When Picasso died – in 1973, the year before I was born – he left behind 45,000 works, not to mention personal objects and correspondence.
