Some Aussies put off by pushy car salespeople

Australian car insurance customers are generally happy with the top car brands and their showrooms, but a few are still put off buying by pushy salespeople.

New research from RACQ, which was conducted in Queensland, showed that 90 per cent of Aussies are happy with the vehicle-buying process and a whopping 85 per cent of first-time dealership buyers said they would shop at the same place again.

But a minority are still put off by out of touch dealers who adopt pushy techniques to get car insurance customers to bite.

RACQ spokesman Steve Spalding said: "Overall, dealers generally met buyers' expectations in how well they performed although they need to improve their performance in responding to customers' inquiries."

More than one-in-four buyers had to return their car because of a fault, missing accessories, or simply to have their vehicle checked out.

Before making a decision in the showroom, Australians can ensure they drive down the cost of their insurance premiums by opting for a popular vehicle – a move that can also cut the cost of repairs.ADNFCR-1761-ID-801235293-ADNFCR
