Tight used car supply has dealers looking in their own service bays
According to Ward's Auto, the latest tactic is buying vehicles from service customers. Dealers are appraising customer cars and trucks before they pay their repair bills, then offering to buy the vehicles rather than charge the owners for the service visit. Dealers are even giving service personnel incentives to bring in trades.
One dealer said his service areas have signs reading, "Before you pay your service bill, you might want to find out the value of your car."
