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.

Car insurance customers put off buying vehicles 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
