Milan has auto dealers, who sell both new and pre-owned cars, at retail rates.

Other services offered by auto dealers in Milan include, but are limited to, GAP insurance to insure against theft or accidents, diability insurance, financing services (loans for the vehicle), accessories, maintenance packages, and trade-in options. These dealers have a showroom with cars displayed, with a sticker listing their basic features and the retail price. The salespersons work on commission and help the customer in finalizing a decision about which car/vehicle to buy.
