Well, you may be thinking well, even though i have the means, i don’t want to go, buy a car right now, of course, as with car purchases in normal times, you want to be smart about what you’re buying and how you’re going to finance it.
Car sales have plummeted really, since march, prompting a whole lot of automakers and their dealers to work hard to earn your business even when it comes to offering incentives and financing is one of the big places.
So if you can get a great deal from a dealer, i would say move quickly if you’re looking for a popular model, though you may want to really look at some inventory because with plant closures, the allocation or the opportunity for a whole lot of selection may Not be there, many of the manufacturers, like general motors hyundai, honda and others have expanded their first responder lease programs that are out there to include health care workers.
So maybe you need to check into that.
Do your research, automotive sales are now allowed across the country as uh stay-at-home orders have been readjusted.
However, some showrooms continue to have limited staff and restricted hours, consumer confidence we’ve talked about before, maybe something you really want to check out with that particular dealer first.

The corona virus has really been hitting everyone pretty hard.
Trying to do.
Everything right to sanitation goes as far as making sure not only that the sanitization is going right, but taking temperatures of customers and employees, but things do happen, so we have to shut down, make sure that we do clean open back up.

So what does that mean? Some dealerships are having a tough time staying open.
If there is something spotted, they have to shut down, and it may be a day or two before they can reopen again so once again, why would now be good to wait? Well, if you do have a dealer that you’ve been dealing with, and you like what they’ve been doing as far as their branding your consumer confidence.
