We’ve all been there. Standing next to a used car that we really want. Then we realize that also standing between us and our new (used) automobile, is a salesman and a price written in soap on the window. The number seems a little high, but what can we do? The salesman holds all the cards. If we want to drive off the lot in that automobile then we’ll pay the amount he asks, but wouldn’t it be great if there were a way to instantly know for sure what a car is really worth?
Well, say hello to “Vinny.” No, Vinny isn’t some intimidatingly large mafia enforcer, it’s actually a new iPhone app that was designed to help buyers who find themselves in similar situations to the one described above. Basically, Vinny is knowledge. Knowledge to level the playing field. Knowledge to use in bargaining. Knowledge to help you get the car you want at a fair price.
