e your mechanic come with you. However, if that isn't possible, don't ever be afraid to ask the dealer if you can have the vehicle checked out at another garage. Now I am not saying every car you look at should be carted off to your mechanic. That would be overdoing it and probably drive your mechanic a bit nuts.
The easiest way is to narrow your choices down to the car you really want. Then, either bring your mechanic to check out the vehicle, or ask to have it looked at elsewhere. If the dealer doesn't allow you to have the vehicle checked, beware! There is probably a reason why they don't want you to. Some dealers may want to send a representative with you to your mechanic. That's fine, since if any issues do arise, they can be brought to the representative's attention right there without you having to pass along information from your mechanic to their's.
Take your time, decide what you want, then remember......Mechanics Matter!
