Here’s Why Used Car Dealerships Don’t Put Prices on Their Vehicles

At CrossPointe Motor Cars, every single vehicle in our inventory hits the sales with a price tag. No exceptions. However, that’s not the case for many used car dealerships. It’s a practice that has perplexed many potential customers over the years and has even caused some people to distrust used cars dealers altogether. But that’s not the whole picture.

So then, why don’t some used car dealerships put prices on their cars.


The CrossPointe Buying Experience


Why No Price Tags?

There are many reasons why a dealer may not have put a concrete price on their vehicle. The value of used vehicles tends to fluctuate a lot. Depending on the type of signage a dealership uses, it may not be cost effective to constantly switch it out when the price of a vehicle changes. Another reason is there is no set cost. Usually the worth of used vehicle is determined by a specific range (like $15,000 to $18,000, for example), because two of the same vehicles could be in very different conditions. However, there are some dealerships out there that simply don’t put a price tag out in order to try to get as much money from you as possible. If you’re not good at or comfortable with haggling, this could lead you to overpaying. That kind of behavior is something we avoid at CrossPointe.
