Seminar Attendees Gain Valuable Auto Purchasing Tips Thanks to Flagship Campus Professor

Keiser University Automotive Dealership Management program professor Brian Bastin recently shared strategies and techniques which can make the auto-buying process quicker, less costly and surprisingly enjoyable at a seminar titled “Demystifying the Car-Buying Process.”

Flagship campus friends and community members were thankful to gain insights relating to the best time to purchase a vehicle, the pros and cons of selecting new and used vehicles, extended service contracts, and lease, finance, and cash options. Bastin relayed the information through an entertaining trivia game, music and movie clips as he unveiled the SMART TOOLS acronym he’d developed for the process. It includes:

S – Specify your needs, wants and constraints

M – Make a budget and stick to it

A – Appraise your trade-in online or through an independent buyer

R – Research your choices online

T – Talk to your own bank or to other banks before going to a dealership

T – Test drive the vehicle, the dealership, and the people

O – Orchestrate your game plan

O – Only buy the vehicle and products that add value and fit into your budget

L – Leave unless you get what you want

S – Savor the victory
