11. Avoid Providing Personal Information until Purchase Time

In today’s world, it is not smart to provide one’s social security number, driver’s license, or other personal information until it is time to close the deal on an auto purchase. Even though the salesperson may be honest, your information is likely to be kept or sold at a later time if it is allowed to be recorded by the dealership. In the worst case, personal information can be stolen or sold to nefarious characters who can use the information to open credit or steal the consumer’s identity. If the dealership refuses to move forward without copies of this information, then it might be time to find an alternative dealer.
