Re: Negotiating Used Car Prices?

I'd try to get a few grand off. As PP said, it'll be harder now because everyone is eager to spend their tax refund.
I low ball them and if they don't counter with something reasonable, I walk away. Literally. I never tell them I need a vehicle, even if I do. I point out any and every issue I (or my mechanic DH) find. I don't tell them I'm paying cash until paperwork has began/price has been decided. If they ask, I skirt around the issue. Dealers count on interest money when selling vehicles.
