When you sign up for Mojo Motors and ‘Follow’ your first car, you might be thinking, “now what?” Since you’ve probably already spent a bunch of time shopping for a used car, we want to help expedite the process for you like a turtle wearing a helmet with wheels for legs and a rocket attached to his shell.
Sure, we’ll send you emails when the price drops on cars you’re ‘Following’ so you’ll be first to know when dealers change prices, but that doesn’t always happen right away. That’s why we send you an email the day after you sign up with Mojo Motors giving you a few car shopping cheats.
These cheats or secrets give you the scoop on how many times a dealership will typically drop price and how much you could save by ‘Following.’
But let’s get back to the start. You just ‘Followed’ your first car so now what? Here’s the answer. Click the My Cars link at the top of any page on Mojo Motors and take a look at those tabs near the top of the page. You should see a couple of big numbers jumping at you, specifically the number under “Price Dropped.”
Within seconds of ‘Following’ your first car, you’ll see all the other cars with recent price drops that match the car(s) you’re ‘Following.’ See below.
It’s important to look at recent price drops because this indicates how the market is pricing cars. More importantly, you’ll only see cars highly relevant to your search. For example, if you’re ‘Following’ a 2005 Honda Accord, the “Price Dropped” tab will immediately be populated with cars one year newer or older that are near you.
Just a quick glance of the “Price Dropped” tab should make you a smarter car shopper and help you spot a deal quicker than a mutated helmet-wearing turtle with wheel legs. For more information about how the My Cars page is going to make car shopping faster and better, check out this blog post.
