Yes, car dealers, including us at Hartland Automotive Sales, will accept cash as a form of payment.

How to Pay Cash for a Car at the Dealership?

It is pretty easy to use cash to help pay for a new car at a car dealership. You simply will go in and take a look at some of the cars that are available. Once you have chosen the one you want and given it a good test drive, you can enter into negotiations about how much you will spend for the vehicle.

Keep in mind that most dealers will not give you a good deal only based on the fact you plan to pay in cash. You may want to just keep that information out of the negotiations and see what kind of a deal you can get. When a deal is reached, you simply pay for the vehicle right then. You can use actual cash for this or write a personal check for us to deposit that has the right sum of money on it.

Do Car Dealerships Take Cash for Down payments?

Yes, dealerships will accept cash as a down payment to help pay for your vehicle. Most are happy to do this because it shows a new level of responsibility and makes it less likely that you will default on the loan at all.

Do Dealers Accept Personal Checks?

Yes, most dealerships will accept personal checks to help pay for the purchase of a new car. Each dealership will have different requirements about how they will handle this though so you will need to check with the specific dealer you are using. Some will need other verification before approving the purchase to make sure you have the right amount in your account. Others may make you wait until the check clears before getting the car too.

Does it Look Suspicious to Buy a Car with Cash?

It does not look suspicious to buy a car with cash. It looks responsible. You will not have to worry about having to get a loan in order to handle the purchase of the vehicle, which can save you a lot of headache and hassle along the line. Keep in mind that having cash does not guarantee that you will get a better deal on the vehicle. You may want to consider a personal check as that is often a little more secure than real cash.

Whether you want to purchase with a personal check, cash, or use financing, our professionals at Hartland Automotive Sales are here to help. We can answer your questions and make sure you walk away with the best vehicle for your needs.
