You just bought car insurance, premium fuel, an upgrade on your stereo system...now you have to think about actually getting into your new Yukon or Caprice. Electric wheelchair lifts cost extra, to say nothing of the installation. You can spend $700 to $3,000 just for the lift. Fortunately, car dealerships aren't out to nickel and dime you. Yes, you read that right.
The salesman may have a loud tie, but pay attention when he tells you the dealership will install that electric wheel chair lift for no cost. If you choose a dealer of specialty accessible cars or trucks, you can be doubly assured--Freedom Motors' vehicles have high-powered transfer seats in the middle row, and an Auto Entry System that turns the entire van into a wheelchair lift.
But if you don't need a high-end or specialty vehicle, just negotiate with your car dealership. Tell the salesman you like his tie.
