Our certified sales consultants will be happy to answer any of your questions, demonstrate the features of your new vehicle. We want you to look forward to your car buying experience. We want to make it fun and enjoyable for you. We understand price is important and that's why we are offering upfront savings on all the cars we have in stock. We are not a fixed price no-negotiations dealer like CARMAX either. We welcome further discussion of pricing and we'll compete with other offers you may have and work with you to fit the vehicle in your budget even if it means further adjustment in our no-hassle pricing. You have the choice: Buy at our no-hassle price and save time and money or talked to us about why we should change our no-hassle pricing. We won't give you hassle but keep in mind that to tell us We'll go over all the numbers including price, rebates, taxes, government fees and finance charges if any so you will know exactly what you are getting for what you are paying.
We want to caution people who are focused on price only. We frequently meet customers who come in to trade their vehicle way earlier than their regular trade cycle. These folks almost always were motivated solely on the price of the vehicle they are trading. They now realize that what they bought at a great price is not exactly what they wanted or needed or it lacks features they really want or need. Unfortunately the great deal they got six month to a year ago ends up costing more. So please forgive us if we try to take your focus off the price and want to learn about your wants, needs and intended uses for the vehicle you are considering. We are not trying to get you to pay more. We want to help you get the right car the first time so you SAVE more in the long run.
Here are the answers to frequently asked questions about how we do business:
Q. Is Swift a Costco Dealer?
A. We are a Costco Auto Program authorized dealer for Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, Ram brands. At this time, we are not participating in the Costco Auto Program for Kia brand. Watch here for further updates.
Q. Do you work with other affinity car buying services?
A. There are a number of organizations like AAA, USAA, GEICO, Consumer Reports, Bank of America that offer car buying services for their members, subscribers and customers. These programs offer hassle-free, haggle-free, quality car buying experience which are not much different than what we are striving to offer online to everyone. Keep in mind that the pricing for most if not all of these car buying services set by the individual dealers participating in these programs and differ from dealer to dealer. Our online pricing for the most part is set to be competitive with these car buying service offers and we do offer the same if not better level of service. If you are a member of one of these organizations, please let us know.
Q. Have you heard of TrueCar.com? Do you participate in True Car program?
A. Yes, we are currently participating in True Car program. Dealers who participate in True Car program do agree to sell cars at set prices and these prices will vary from dealer to dealer. Dealers who are participating in the program may not have the vehicle you specified and received a price quote on TrueCar.com and they are not obligated to provide you with that specific car at the price shown on your TrueCar certificate. On our website you can see all the vehicles we have in stock in real time. We encourage you to contact us and verify availability before you make the trip. We do not give price quotes on vehicles we do not have in stock or we can not reasonably obtain from another dealer or order from factory. Unfortunately, many times customers are given unrealistic price quotes on vehicles that don't exist which makes them frustrated when they try to do a comparison shopping based on that unrealistic price.
Q. Price is the most important thing for me. How do I know your price is the best price?
A. Because we say so. Well, just kidding of course. We do not claim to have the best prices in Davis, in greater Sacramento area, in California, in Western United States or in the whole country. What we are offering is a no-hassle, upfront, clear and understandable pricing that saves you time and money with a quality service that makes your car buying experience an enjoyable one. Can you get better prices somewhere else? Sure, if you don't mind spending more time, effort and a confrontational and a frustrating car buying experience. We have not met many people who enjoyed getting a run-around from other dealers. If you enjoy negotiation and have some time to spare you can negotiate with us. We ask you do the negotiation in person at our location -- yep, we'll have the home turf advantage but you will start at an already discounted price -- after you see and test-drive the vehicle. We even try to make negotiation friendly and fun. No worries if we do not come to agreement. There is no hard feelings and we'll part friends.
Q Do you honor Chrysler Affiliate Program Pricing?
A. Yes, we do.
Q. Am I going to be dealing with one person from your internet sales department?
A. Swift Chrysler Jeep Dodge Kia has an internet savvy Sales Force. We do not have a separate internet sales department. Our Internet Sales Manager and his team will be your initial contact by email and by phone, whichever you prefer. Our expert Sales Consultants will be the ones presenting, demonstrating, test-driving the vehicles with you. Our whole team including our Sales Consultants, Sales & Finance Managers work together to save you time and money and make your car buying a pleasant experience.
Q. What do I need to bring in to my appointment?
A. Driver's License and proof of insurance. For financing arrangements, we may need a current pay stub or some other form of proof of income, current utility or phone bill as a proof of residence especially if you recently changed your residence address, names, addresses and phone numbers of a relative and two references.
Q. I have my own financing. Do you still need all that information?
A. It depends on the source of your own financing. Some may still require us to collect some or most of this information. Please contact us with your financing information. It is great that you secured your own financing and you know the terms and conditions of your loan. Automobile financing offers change constantly these days. As we stated repeatedly: We want to SAVE you money and suggest that you give us the opportunity to look to see if there is a better offer for you. We have experienced Finance Managers who work with all major banks, financial institutions and credit unions. You have nothing to lose if we cannot find a better offer but everything to gain if we do.
Q. My financing is with my Credit Union. Do I need a purchase order?
A. Most credit unions in the area participate in Credit Union Direct Lending (CUDL) program which is a point-of-purchase provider. As a member of a participating CUDL credit union, you can experience the easiest way to purchase a new or used car while taking advantage of your Credit Union's great auto loan financing. CUDL is an automated loan approval system that this authorized dealer and your credit union use to give you the best and most convenient way to process your auto loan. That's right, credit union financing without even visiting a branch! It saves you time. There is no need to make multiple trips between your credit union branch and our store. Purchase orders do not secure a vehicle so by using CUDL you avoid the risk that the vehicle you are interested will be sold.
Q. Don't you hold cars?
A. We can only agree to hold a vehicle for you while you are traveling to see, test-drive and/or finalize a deal on a vehicle so the vehicle is not sold in the meantime. Please call us and let us know that you are on your way and your approximate time of arrival.
Q. Do you take pre-approved loan checks from other financial institutions like Capital One, Road Loans etc?
A. We do. We would need to see the documentation that has the term and conditions. We may also need to contact these institutions before we finalize the deal. Again we suggest that you give us the opportunity to look to see if we can find you a better offer.
Q. I want to pay by cash. Do you take cash?
A. Absolutely! You can pay by cash or cashier's check. We also take personal checks but may ask you to allow us to run a credit check and to give us additional reference information.
Q. How about a credit card? Can I put it all on a credit card?
A. We understand the advantage of earning rewards or miles by charging the car to your credit card but unfortunately we only accept credit cards as down payments or as partial payments. Contact us about the amounts we can work with.
Q. Do you take trades?
A. Yes! Not only we take trades, we want trades. Our Used Car Manager prefers to stay at the store appraising trades rather than jetting to the auctions all over the country.
Q. How much will you pay for my trade?
A. We'll pay a fair market value for your trade. We can only determine that after we see and appraise your trade. If you are looking for a rough idea or a ballpark figure, internet is your best friend. Try KBB.com. Keep in mind that used car market is very dynamic and the vehicle values may change weekly based on the market, location and time of the year. We are as competitive in buying trades as we are competitive in selling our cars so bring your trade in.
