3. Deciding to Buy the Car


A: I really like that car and I am thinking of buying it.

B: Yes, I agree. Do you want to take it to a mechanic to have it checked out?

A: I already took care of that yesterday.

B: That's good. Have you discussed the price with the seller?

A: Yes, I think we've agreed upon a fair price.

B: Have you set up your financing to pay for this car?

A: Yes, my parents are going to loan me the money.

B: That's good. Would you like me to go talk to the seller with you and drive your car home?

A: That would be a great help!

B: Glad to be of help. I can't wait to see your new car!


A: That car is exactly what I want, so I probably should buy it.

B: From what I see, it's a good deal. Should a mechanic check it out for you?

A: A mechanic looked at it for me on Tuesday when I first looked at it.

B: It's good that you took care of that. Have you agreed upon a price with the seller?

A: Yes, he was willing to lower his price a bit and I'm good with that.

B: Do you know how you are going to pay for this car?

A: Yes, I have already pre-qualified for a loan with my credit union.

B: You are very well prepared! I could go with you to talk to the seller and help you get your car home.

A: I appreciate the offer of help!

B: It will be my pleasure to help you. I am looking forward to riding in your new car.


A: I think that that car drove really well and is a good deal.

B: It seems to be a good choice for you. You might want to have a mechanic take a look at it just to be sure.

A: My friend is a mechanic and he came and looked at it for me this morning.

B: That was smart of you to think ahead. Have you and the seller agreed upon a price?

A: Yes, he is willing to accept the price that I offered him.

B: Have you thought about how to pay for your car?

A: I saved up enough money to pay cash for this car.

B: You've really thought this through. Let me go with you to make the payment and drive your car home for you.

A: That would make it a lot easier for me.

B: Let's go take care of that right now. I really want to see your new car!
