Buying a car is a big deal and a memorable moment for many people. However, if you struggle with knowing how car dealerships work and how to negotiate, you could end up making a bad deal when you purchase a vehicle.

Thankfully, more people have been sharing tips and tricks for getting the best deal out of your car buying experience.

One of those people is Roxy Stylez (@roxystylezz26), a nurse and TikTok content creator who went viral after making a video about how to avoid getting scammed at a car dealership.

Roxy used to work in a car dealership and says that the car salespeople are “crooks” who “bury” young people with the prices they give them for cars.

“I’ve seen this car dealership bury 18-year-olds in their vehicle for life,” says Roxy in her video.

“They’re never gonna get a return on it, they’re never gonna be able to pay it off, and any time they trade it in, they’re gonna carry over all the negative equity that they’ve acquired from [the dealership] overselling an overpriced car that’s worth nothing onto their new vehicle. So you’ll owe $50,000 on a $10,000 car. Don’t let that happen to you. I’m not going to let that happen to you.”

Roxy’s car-buying method involves trading in your current car. While you may want to do that, she advised you not to tell any car dealers that information off the bat.

Instead, do some research and look up the price of your current car and the car you want to buy on a website called Autotrader, and use those prices when negotiating with a car salesperson.

Roxy explains that the salesperson will likely try to trick you out of that price, but you have to stay strong and insist on it. She then advises you to try and get the salesperson to go as close to the price you saw on Autotrader as possible or take $5,000 off their initial offer.
