How to Negotiate a Car Deal (And Save Big)

car-buying will always suck because
every time you buy a car you’ll never have a clue if you got the best deal or
if you didn’t there’s really no way to know how much money a dealer’s making
off of you every time you buy a car but in this video I’m gonna cover the three
key steps to negotiating a car deal so that you can at least get the best deal
possible so if you follow these steps in order you’ll at least be more prepared
to negotiate a car the next time you need to and you might just learn
something as well now if you just stumbled across this video I’m Jason
with the honest finance Channel I like to talk a lot about different financial
subjects so if you’re interested in this type of content feel free to subscribe
or at least give the video a like and now on to car buying negotiation now the
first key step in order to properly negotiate a car deal is research what
I’m saying here is that you have to do your homework on the type of car you’re
looking for before you even bother going to the dealership just think of it like
this okay the goal of the dealership is to make money and your goal is to save
money so in order to do that you’ve got to start by doing your research I mean
seriously how do you expect to negotiate a car deal if you have no idea what the
car you’re looking at is even worth just don’t be stupid with this okay just do
your homework and you’ll be just fine so while you’re doing the research for
the car that you’re looking for these are the two websites that I recommend
using I want you to visit and because both of these
websites are gonna give you really good information on what your car is worth
the specs and different reviews and things like that
they both do a great job at letting you know how much your car is worth in the
particular region that you live in what these websites do is they allow you to
plug in all the different specs and information about the cars you’re
looking for and then they’ll tell you what’s a fair price that you should be
paying now you can use Kelley Blue Book as well but what I’m trying to say here
is that if you just go online and do some research you’re gonna be in a lot
better position to negotiate a car and seriously if you don’t do your research
you’re gonna end up in a car that you didn’t want in the first place and
you’re gonna want to sell it in six months because you hate it so just do
your research before you go to the dealership and you’ll be just fine
now the next key step is to actually negotiate the price of the car that
you’re buying I’m gonna tell you exactly how to negotiate
car deal so the first thing you want to do is you want to get on the phone and
you want to call every single dealer that’s in your area and find out what
they want for the specific car that you’re looking for now if they do want
their business they’ll just tell you the real numbers over the phone so that you
don’t have to play a bunch of games and you can just go into the right
dealership that you want to now if they tell you that you have to come into the
dealership in order to get the price then don’t even bother doing business
with them because they’re not giving you the respect that you deserve right from
the beginning now once you’ve made all the phone calls
and you’re confident which dealership you want to go with go ahead and head
over that now once you’ve gotten to the dealership and you find this specific
car that you want you need to lock in that price first thing and I’m talking
about the exact price of the car and not the monthly payment because monthly
payments can fluctuate just based on changing the terms so let’s say that the
car you’re looking for is listed for fourteen nine and that’s a pretty good
price based on the research that you’ve already done now you’ve already got a
good starting point because of the phone calls and the research that you’ve done
but you don’t know how much the dealerships paid for it maybe they only
paid thirteen five for the car but you have no idea now if that were actually
true they could potentially make about fourteen hundred bucks off of that deal
and that’s not even including a trade-in or financing different things like that
and I know that businesses need to make a profit in order to stay in business
but there’s a point where they’re just making too much money off of one deal
and seriously 1,400 bucks isn’t even that much compared to some of the really
expensive used cars and the margins that they haven’t knows now that’s the thing
that really sucks about buying cars these days is because you have no idea
how much money they’re making in the deal there’s no transparency when it
comes to buying cars from the consumers point of view so what you can do is you
can at least try your best to negotiate the best deal possible so that you don’t
have to think about it now this is how you negotiate the car’s price but you’ve
got to be confident in order to make this happen now if you’ve got a timid
type personality then you’ve got to understand that you are always gonna get
screwed on these kind of deals unless you fake your confidence so I don’t
really care if you’re not naturally the confident type you’ve just got to fake
it in order to make this happen so this is what you’ve got to do you’ve got to
start with an asking price that’s fair and realistic for the amount of money
that you actually want to pay for the car so for instance let’s say that you
lowball and you ask for $9,000 for the car
well the salesman is just gonna politely walk you out of the dealership and say
have a good day because that’s not fair and that’s not a realistic price the
dealership does have bills to pay and the salesman probably wants to keep his
job so just make a realistic and a fair offer here if it were me personally I
would offer $13,900 for the car and I would stand by that price and the only thing
that sucks here is that you have no idea how much money they’re making on that
car but just be confident in your offer and you’ll be just fine and you won’t
have buyer’s remorse and you can be confident here because you at least know
based on your research that the car is worth a little bit more than that you
just don’t know how much the dealership is gonna make off the deal so just be ok
with the number that you got from the research and the offer that you’re
making on the car so that you can be confident so right after you make the
offer the salesman will say something like well let me go talk to my manager
that’s a really low offer we’ll see what we can do now he’s gonna come back with
a pen and paper and he’s gonna write down a bunch of financing and a bunch of
numbers and all sorts of stuff like that but the only thing you need to pay
attention to is the actual price of the car and my bet is that the number on the
car is going to be $14,500 which is not the $13,900 that you asked for
he’ll still make you feel bad that the company’s not making any money
and that that’s about the maximum amount of money that they can sell the car to
you for and if it were actually true that they weren’t making any money on
the car and at this point they would just walk you out of the dealership and
they’d say have a nice day because they really do need to make a profit on the
car so just keep in mind that if they’re not kicking you out of the dealership
then you’re still worth their time to them so from my personal experience I
was in sales for five years and I can tell you that there is always a point in
a negotiation where it’s still worth getting the sale there’s always going to
be a point where the salesman can either make it happen or he’s got to have you
leave so even if the salesman’s Commission has been completely
slaughtered by your offer it still might be worth it to them because of monthly
sales and yearly sales that they’re trying to keep track of so at this point
just ignore all the numbers on the paper and focus in on the price tell the
salesman that you can’t afford anything but the $13,900 that you offered
and that you’ll just leave if they can’t do that for you now at this point he’ll
go back to the manager once again and then he’ll come back with a new
number this time it’ll be $14,200 and he will tell you straight up that they have
no money to be made on that car so now just be confident here and offer
once again the $13,900 and just tell him that you’ll leave and seriously don’t
feel bad if you need to leave here because it’s really easy to just go to
one of those other dealerships that you already called and work with them
instead so now the salesman will leave to his manager once again and this time
the manager will come back with the salesman now if they can’t afford your
offer you’ll know that by now but at this point you’re going to be talking to
the salesman and the manager now when you’re talking to them they’re gonna
give you a whole bunch of bullcrap about how they’re not making any money and how
fourteen thousand dollars is the lowest they could possibly go on the car now
I’d say fourteen thousand dollars is close enough to the thirty-nine that you
offered so just say yes and make it happen the thing that sucks here is that
if they would have just offered fourteen thousand from the very beginning you
probably would have been just fine with that and you wouldn’t have had to waste
any time but that’s part of the negotiation process because if you don’t
go back and forth a few times then they’re likely to make more money off of
the deal and then obviously you on the other hand are gonna be spending more
money on the car I’d say that going back and forth about three times is usually
the magic number and I’m sorry that this sucks but you’re gonna have to do it
every single time you buy a car in order to get the best deal now I’m not gonna
go into a ton of detail here but if you’ve got a trade-in you’re gonna have
to do the same stupid game once again you’ve got to make sure that you get an
excellent trade price too otherwise you’re just gonna end up breaking even
so basically if you get a really good price on your car but you’ve got a
really crappy trade-in then that’s not gonna work overall you’ve got to get
your trade up here where it’s even so that you get the best deal overall now I
do want to make a point here that if you’ve got a trade-in for the dealership
keep in mind that most states will actually subtract the total of your
trade amount from the total price of the car helping you with the sales tax so
let’s say that you buy a twenty five thousand dollar car and you have a
trade-in that’s worth $12,000 so let’s pretend that the sales tax rate in your
state is about seven percent so what this means is that you’re only gonna pay
sales tax on the difference which is thirteen thousand dollars instead of the
twenty five thousand dollars that you started at so if you’ve got a car that
you want to sell that’s actually worth a lot of
then it might be worth considering going through the trade through the dealership
so let’s say that you have a car that’s worth like $5,000 and the dealership
only offers you $3,000 for the car well even with the tax advantage it’s not
gonna be worth that extra $2,000 so you’d be better off just selling it
on your own and whether or not you want to sell your car on your own or do a
trade through the dealership that’s just up to you I’ve done plenty of trades and
they’ve worked out fine now that you’ve negotiated the price of
the car and the trade-in it’s time for the final key step of negotiation which
is the financing now this part of the negotiation process can really screw you
over so pay attention as to what to do when it comes to financing the first
thing you want to do is you want to make sure you get the best interest rate for
the car loan that you’re trying to get a lot of dealers will actually get a tiny
little cut of the interest rates so it might be in your best interest to check
with your banks before you go into the dealership to check their rates but I’ve
actually found that a lot of the big dealerships are pretty honest when it
comes to competitive rates so what you see at a bank is going to be exactly the
same as what they’re offering you just do a little bit of homework here so that
you have an idea if they’re getting a cut or if they’re not getting a cut so
once you’ve got the interest rate figured out you’ve got to also
understand that you’ve still got taxes and fees associated with your car as
well now taxes and fees totally suck when it
comes to buying a car but I’m gonna teach you how to tell if it’s a tax or
if it’s just a bullcrap fee for the dealership to make more money the way
that you can tell that it’s a legit feed that you have to pay is if you don’t pay
sales tax on the fee you’re not gonna have to pay sales tax on a state
registration or a licensing fee or anything like that and if you do have to
pay sales tax on the fee then that’s a good reminder that it’s probably a fee
that you don’t have to pay there’s a couple fees that I’ve always gotten used
to and one is called VTR and the other one is called the doc fee now VTR which
they call vehicle theft registration is usually about 300 bucks and I’ve always
been able to get out of that one now the other feed that I’m used to is called
the doc fee which is also about 300 bucks but I have never been able to get
out of the document fee so if you have let me know in the comments because I’ve
tried really hard and I’ve never been able to get out of it now at this point
during the financing you want to make sure that you get all the applicable
rebates and all the different things associated with saving money on the
vehicle now if the dealership offers you an
extended warranty or some sort of an interior cleaning protection program
keep in mind that those are negotiable – I’m not gonna go into a bunch of detail
here but just don’t pay full price for an extended warranty if you want
something like that and don’t pay full price for some carpet cleaning thing
either now finally after all of this is done you can sign the paperwork and you
can drive away knowing that you negotiated the car the best that you
possibly could and now you don’t have to have buyer’s remorse like most of us do
after we buy a car now once again I’m Jason with the honest finance Channel if

  2. Cap Dinero says:

    Thank u for this like my father for financing lol

  3. Kirk Dunn says:

    If you have the ability to walk away you'll be fine, if you dont you'll get hosed most likely

    You do it once every 5-10 yrs, these guys do it everyday, who's gonna be better at this?…….research as vid says and walk out friggen door if you cant get a fair deal….

  4. Jessica Braggs says:

    Why not ask how much they paid for it

  5. jebusm86 says:

    Went to look at a Dodge Ram today. Truck was listed at $24k. After negotiating a reasonable payment I multiplied the payment by the term years and the total was $39k. I didn't need to ask them what the interest rate was to see i was being screwed. I laughed and said no thanks. This is why I prefer to buy older vehicles using bank loans on private deals. Two people agree on a price and that's it. Theres no bs.

  6. 1ove2Act says:

    What about the transfer fee?

  7. Roopam Rajvanshi says:

    You'd have to do the same stupid thing once again 7:58. Truer words have never been spoken. 😀

  8. Mike Mosher says:

    this is bs

  9. Rodney E. Mosley II says:

    After being in the car business for over 12 years one of the easiest things you can do is make yourself known as a invoice buyer. Ask for the invoice on the used vehicle in other words how much did you give the person who traded this car in? If the dealership is not willing to show you the invoice on the new or used vehicle walkout!

  10. Stephen Szymanski says:

    The best advice when negotiating a deal… YOU have the power, all of it. Because you can just walk out if you don't like ANY aspect of the deal.

  11. Angel Denise says:

    Thanks for sharing

  12. Thomas Leseman says:

    As a consumer you are buying quality not price, it doesn't matter how much a dealer is asking for the car, come in drive it, like it, then make your offer. You would not buy a pair of shoes before you try them on right? A good dealer will not talk price over the phone. If you like the car go see it, touch it feel it drive it, then talk price..

  13. Jeff LaFlare says:

    The car we want is $47,000 but we only want to pay like $44,000 how can we discount it

  14. Victoria Fernandez says:

    Thank you so much. Very helpful

  15. Charlotte Morabito says:

    I don't entirely understand the 'call the dealership' tip at 2:12. Aren't those prices listed online? Won't they tell anyone who calls to just check online? Unless the prices listed online aren't always the 'real' price, which seems likely considering everything else you said in the video.

  16. Edward says:

    Except for the fact that truecar charges the dealership $400 as soon as you submit an inquiry about the car, coming out of the profit margin on that car, potentially losing you $400.

  17. genxer39 says:

    NADA will give you the wholesale values of the used vehicle. Dealers usually pay less than wholesale for a used car. I use this when negotiating. Along with Carfax, edmunds, truecar, kbb. Print everything out that will help you, and take it with you. Never be afraid to walk out. I've walked out many times and been called back agreeing to my price or finding another dealer that would. Also you can get dealers to throw in services for free. I helped someone find and negotiate a car recently. I got the dealer to throw in 2 oil changes with tire rotations. My last new car purchase, I negotiated 5 synthetic oil changes in my deal, along with a good price I was happy with.

  18. Dwight Fontenot says:

    NEVER FINANCE A CAR! Pay cash! If you don't have the cash, buy a cheaper car.

  19. Country Bama says:

    it doesnt matter how much a dealer is making it is irrelevant a person should be happy about getting a deal that shows as a good deal. It is also untrue that dealers always making money on car deals, often times dealers can loose money on deals bc of money they get paid from manufacturers for hitting objective this idea of just paying what you want for a car is ridiculous also the time spent of like 4-6 hours to save 3-500$ is just idiotic, as my time is worth alot more than that, but I suppose for some people it is worth the head ache and time but not for me I would rather pay a small profit to them for doing their job and be out iln 30 mins to an hour rather than spending my entire day there.

  20. jhouser972 says:

    Geez.. One day I’ll get a new Tesla and skip all this BS. It is ridiculous we have to jump through all these hoops just to get a car.

  21. Rumple Stiltskin says:

    I found this hysterical when this happened to me15 years ago when I purchased my Chrysler 300M special. They wanted $35,000. I did my due diligence and research and also used Consumer Reports and had a check from the bank in my pocket. Just like you stated, I told them is what I'll pay "out the door", meaning tax and licensing as well. I saved over $5,000 on the purchase, and the sales guy kept doing just as you have stated trying to wear me down. When I noticed what he was doing, I knew I had him by the balls.

  22. aeronasca says:

    1:22 it is NOT Edmonds,is Edmunds… genius.

  23. Trenity Peters says:

    Is it really low ball if the car 15,900 and I offered 11,500

  24. Susann Minall says:

    I found it under

  25. SiblingProductions80 says:

    I watched this video before heading to the dealership to trade in my old vehicle….thank you so much!!! I did my research so I was able to stick to my guns, call their bluffs, and negotiate like a pro. Out the door was 23% savings on the sticker price. And they TOTALLY tried to trick me with fees.

  26. Fredrick Baugh says:

    Yea, and if you've got a trade in, there gonna insist on taking the Keys and leaving you in the lounge while they research the physical limits of your connecting rods and driveline treating YOUR Property like a car that's already been relegated to the crusher! Do Don't under any circumstances let them take your keys and drive Your car without you. Especially if you don't have a concrete deal.

  27. Timothy Mouring says:

    Honestly, this video disgusts me.

    If you don't trust a dealer, don't buy a car there. If you do trust a dealer, don't act like buying a car is ANY different than buying a pair of shoes.
    There's a product, and there's a price. You are entitled to dislike either one or both, and make your decision based accordingly.

    But consumers who don't even give me a chance to earn their trust, and do everything they can to manipulate us are JUST AS DESPICABLE as sales professionals who abuse that trust by manipulating their customer

    We're here to help you make the second most important financial decision of your life.
    "Does that price speak to the value we've showed you in the vehicle and our services?" is all that matters.
    It's none of your business how much money we make.


  28. Papa Bear says:

    if you have a used car over 10 years old sell it yourself. no way will they give you close to what its worth if you sold yourself.

  29. Austin Berry says:

    I love watching Seth Macfarlane explain how to negotiate a car deal

  30. ScrappyGamingHQ says:

    Try to buy private seller, I've seen $1500 with a private seller is $5k at a dealership

  31. Ravey Hart says:

    Wow i wish u were with me lmao

  32. royshu82 says:

    Sounds simple but this my friend is brilliant and will help many! Great channel

  33. Robert Cooper says:

    I dread buying a new or used car. Maybe I should just buy one online.

  34. brandon thomas says:

    Thanks fo ryour vids. How do you get out of the vtr fee?

  35. CARLA. says:

    so this works on new cars too?

  36. Timothy Mouring says:

    Also the information in this video is not correct; I've seen my boss pay a customer 5K to lease a vehicle. Absolutely de-generate selfishness being demonstrated here

  37. Dawna G says:

    great information! I have been researching for about 3 weeks and feel a lot more confident in entering into negotiations. the only thing I dread is the way dealerships treat women, like we are idiots.

  38. nivlem131303 says:

    i should have watch this first before i bought my ride from Chrysler Destination in North Vancouver.. do not go there

  39. TheChris5152 says:

    Would it be considered lowball if the car cost 21k and I offer 17 or 18k? I had a friend who got a car for 14k from almost 19k

  40. js says:

    Pay attention to the actual price of the car is correct when the bank doesn't try to throw stuff like AOE at you. Never understood why Americans tolerate that banks and corporations screw them over.

  41. AjamalD says:

    you got another sub. thanks! very insightful info.

  42. Glenn Caswell says:

    If enough consumers would learn the #1 rule of business these sales tactics would not exist. That being……the one(s) with the money makes the rules ! Tell that to your sales puppet up front and watch his puzzled expression. These guys are trained to take control of the sales process. If you reverse that they are usually at a loss for words. It's quite amusing. LOL
    Answer NO questions….not even your name ! You can, as politely as you choose, tell them that you are there to buy a car…not to make friends . Remember, they are there to get as much of your money as possible…not to be YOUR friend !

  43. sahil sobti says:

    I recently went to a Toyota car dealer to buy a used car. I told him I can only pay 3k less then what he asked for online… He didnt entertain any further… Could you tell me how much lower can the dealer actually go on average? I dont want to miss the next deal…

  44. Madeline says:

    Some really good advice I’ve gotten is to not tell the dealership that you have a trade in until you get close to the end of buying your new car. It will stop them from lowballing you

  45. EPSGplayer says:

    Can you just get to the DAMN POINT?

  46. R5150i says:

    Basically don’t get an American car

  47. odbo255 says:

    You sir, are awesome. I wish you the best, and hope you continue to produce high value content like this.

  48. Brandon Johnson says:

    I wish i found this video before i bought my new jeep. if what you say holds even a shred of clout then i over payed by 1200 bucks. You are very informative

  49. Thomas Signorelli says:

    Most prices on TrueCar are more expensive than what dealers have online.
    Also **Edmunds

  50. Mackenzie Mehmen says:

    Thank you for this!!

  51. Tien Dinh says:

    If in Edmund, kbb, and CarGurus mentioned that a car is a fair and good deal, does that mean I can’t haggle for a lower price? Anyone can help…

  52. Steve Bralver says:

    Jason, if you want to buy all cash, do you tell them you want to finance to get a lower price, and then once agreed upon, change to all cash? Or do you tell them all cash up front?

  53. Mike Allmon says:

    ill keep driving my 1988 Yugo GV and 1989 Nissan Pulsar. REALLY. still driving them

  54. Linda's REI Esquina says:

    How about if I want to lease

  55. Linda's REI Esquina says:

    And I also have a trade or financing a car I'd like to trade how can I do this

  56. Kyle Gibson says:

    At what point in the process do you negotiate the price?

    1. When you first walk in the door?
    2. After you visually inspect the vehicle?
    3. After you test drive it?
    4. After you've had your mechanic inspect it?
    5. Some other time?

    I personally think if you can get the price set before #4, that's a good plan. If you want until after #4, you might find out that they won't agree to your price and then you are out $100 for the vehicle inspection. Plus, if the mechanic finds something major, you can probably use that to negotiate your price down further, or have them repair it.

  57. Sonny Ali says:

    I've purchased 13 new cars since reaching adulthood, so I consider myself pretty savvy. I might be wrong though. I actually prefer to do ALL my negotiating via email or phone. That includes the price and financing…all before I take a single step inside the dealership. I never lease a vehicle, and I always put at least 50% down, without exception. I have 780+ credit score so most of the time I get anywhere from 0 to 3.9% financing, and never do I finance for more than 48 months. My wife's BMW was 60 months, but thankfully I paid it off within 3 years, but even that was 1.9% through BMW Finance. So I think I'm doing it right, but I appreciate the tips on this video because I'm getting ready to buy a new truck. Oh, and I always sell my trade-in privately because every dealer tries to lowball the trade. It's really easy to sell on Autotrader or CL, and the pink slip transfer is really easy on

  58. JIMMY SHAW says:

    Is it better if I buy the car cash?

  59. Sandra Day says:

    I am looking at a 2019 chevy spark the price is running at 12k right now I am thinking about offering 10,500 as it is year end and the color is hideous… well to me but it is a car who cares about the color if i can get a good deal. Is that reasonable for an offer?

  60. borna asi says:

    Doc fee = the number of steps the sales associate has to take going back and forth from his deck to the “managers office”

    Talking to my manager = flirting with the receptionist on the deal your about to make

    I’m making no money on this deal = I’m only making 30% profit on this deal

  61. hikingtrainer(: says:

    Is this on used cars or new ones?

  62. Robert Novotny says:

    I've bought cars from 1 dealership for decades and just recently i brought 2 big sales to this dealer and was looking at a vehicle for me and he tried to rip me off after giving him 2 big sales,he would lower price and i did research on the car and he had it over priced and wouldn't give me crap for trade in,i think he's shady.

  63. Brandon Madsen says:

    What about buying a used xterra in park city with a crazy exwife??

  64. FamousMortimer says:

    I never fold when negotiating the price. The one thing I always leave them with before I threaten to walk out, is say "Listen, I'm buying a car/truck today. What you guys have to ask yourself, is if I'm buying that car/truck from you, or some other dealer?" That really puts things into prospective as far as how firm I am about what I'm willing to pay. Then I'll extend my hand, say the number I want, then say something like, "C'mon guys, shake my hand and let's get this done".

    It helps that I have a credit score of over 800 and I've already secured financing through my credit union, so I know exactly what I can pay. But knowing I can save an extra $1000-$2000 that can go to a lift kit or exhaust system means I'm going to squeeze my leverage for everything its worth.

  65. Armandine Jacotin says:

    Very good information and clear instructions on steps to follow. Thank you.

  66. TravelLynnandESL says:

    Do you have to belong to a bank or a credit union for any specific amount of time? Or even have a checking or savings account with them in order to take out an auto loan?

  67. Murad Osman says:

    Thank you for the valuable information.

  68. Bear Creek says:

    I’ve purchased several new vehicles 5-7 thousand below MSRP sometimes 10. The markup on new vehicles is insane……

  69. Seth Haas says:

    This is the most ridiculous video I have ever heard. Why are you so worried about what the dealership paid for the vehicle? Dealerships don't even make profit in vehicles anymore. The internet has ruined all chances for a dealership to make profit on vehicles, yet people still think they are getting ripped off. I don't see anybody negotiating their groceries at the store? or negotiating their prescription medicine at the pharmacy, but everyone wants to make sure that the dealership makes no profit. I was a car salesman and literally only made profit on about 5 of my 15 cars I sold a month. We actually lost money on the rest. Absolutely ridiculous and videos like this is why I can't stand people.

    Any smart person would just not buy from a car dealer.

  71. Jérémy Bergeron says:

    The car was 10'000$, I wanted 8'000$ and finish paying 12'000$ +

    I did bad my first time 💔 Wish I knew you before Jason

    Nice channel by the way 👍

  72. David James says:

    the best way to get back at a dealership is after you do get approved from the bank for your loan walk out if an when the dealership decides to turn greedy on you…they hate that cause it's money left on the table that they won't collect….take that loan to a dealership that wants to "earn" your business….

  73. Yve Lopez says:

    Why do you suggest calling other dealers when you can just look information up online? Is it that we should not trust online pricing?

  74. Yve Lopez says:

    I went to a dealership last week that tried to charge me a preparation fee. What a joke

  75. Komikazii says:

    can you stop fucking shaking

  76. Francisco M says:

    Very good advice, thank you

  77. Yve Lopez says:

    Question for you, what are you doing a situation where there is an Internet price and then there’s a non-Internet price on the vehicle and the dealership says that you can only get the Internet price if you go with the dealerships financing, but their financing is that a much higher rate than what you’ve been able to secure on your own?

  78. Khai Tran says:

    Always ask for price out of the door, not before taxes. After you are happy that you get your price, they really know how to add taxes and all extra fees to increase the price up as they want.
    1. The price after tax *81% will be your car’s price. Bargain and dont be afraid to walk out if they do not agree with your price. If they agree on the first time, congrats!! You got ripped off….but you can return if you re not happy with the price or lower the price more. After several days they will call you back.
    2. Bring that dealership’s price to another dealership and say :”hey, i got very cheap from this dealership. If you can offer me $400 cheaper then you win the deal”.
    its really takes time to go back and forth to get a good price. The dealership’s strategy is to make you tired and agree with the price. So your job is to make them tired back and sell it with your price. This way i wouldnt recommend if you re a very busy man though since it requires lot of patience. My new 2019 camry SE was $27.3k and i sealed it with $22.4k
    Good luck everyone.

  79. Matt Schmitt says:

    Why does it matter how much the dealership makes off the deal? If you're buying a good vehicle at a good price, does it matter if they ripped off the previous customer or visa versa? I am just as concerned with the bills that the dealer has to pay as they are concerned about the bills I pay – and that is not at all concerned.

    As far as additional fees, when I sit down to negotiate, I explain to the salesman that the numbers we will be talking about are the final numbers. If they have additional doc fees or whatever, that's their problem and it needs to come out of the discussed price set at the table. Best advice is don't have feelings for a car – you have to be able to walk away from the deal if its no good. And pay cash.

  80. Mike Holland says:

    First off, this guy needs to trim his eyebrows. Why does it "suck" not knowing what a dealer is making as far as profit?? If they own a $10,000 car for $5,000…should they sell it for $5,100?? Find the right car, and make a fair offer. If they can do it great. Do not think every dealer wants to take your head off.

  81. Patrick Morgan says:

    Ha ha I negotiate way lower and get it….walk away at worst they will call you at home with a lower amount..still don't back off. I have always got my deal.

  82. Jesus God Jr says:

    And the sales person says 12% Because it's your first Time buying a Toyota…..

  83. Trust Valentino says:

    It's none of your business how much they profit from the sale. Do you go into Walmart and wonder how much profit they make off of your underware purchase? Of coourse not

  84. Monique Brown says:

    This makes me excited to car shop!! Thank you. I can't wait to make these deals sweat lol

  85. Jeannee Major says:

    Did you say not to pay for an extended warranty if you want one? I’m confused. Are you saying that you can request it, but not have to pay for it?

  86. db B says:

  87. preteyes says:

    Thanks really good information.

  88. Eddie Rodriguez says:

    where are you people buying cars? It is nothing like this when you buy a car. sheesh. you don't have to call anywhere ..there's this thing called the internet. Does it really matter what the dealer makes? its all based on the market. …"if their not kicking you out" lol… you have a decent chanel .. this is not good info… this IS NOT how you buy a car or negotiate.

  89. Lupito Lira says:

    My dad and I were going to buy a truck
    We drove 20 miles away for the truck. We waited for her at the designated area but she never showed up. Its been almost an hour and she txt back telling us "I already sold it"
    This happend 4 times now where the seller sells the car to someone else. How can I avoid that? It's a waste of our time just driving for nothing.

  90. Fash out says:

    This is literally every dealership I've walked into, it's like a borg and you know all these steps instinctively.

  91. BrittneyPellegrin says:

    The car I'm looking at should be about 9000 but the dealership has it listed as 15000.

  92. Daniela Blettner says:

    Very good! Thanks a lot!

  93. TRUCK KINGS says:

    so screw your salesman over and make sure the dealer will only make $500 off the sale…after he pays his salesman that's $300…your'e plan is to fuck people over.

  94. Josh Price says:

    I got really lucky. The dealership offered me a deal that was amazing so I agreed to it and we started doing paperworkthen they realize that they gave me a deal under someone else's credit information that was way better than mine but they had to honor that deal anyway because I had already agreed to it apparently.

  95. G D says:

    The fact that so many people expect an individual to make no money doing their job is whats wrong with this society. the furniture in your home had a 600% mark up. the clothes on your back had a 2000% mark up. that car had a 5-10% mark up. pathetic

  96. pjazzz says:

    Thank God I only buy car once every 10 yrs,

  97. rockstar nurse says:

    You should only show up at a dealership in two instances: One, when you've decided on the car you want to buy, and want to test drive it to be sure it's definitely the one. While you're there, they may try and pressure you to buy that day or get you into their office; DO NOT STEP FOOT IN THE BUILDING! Always stay in control of what's happening.

    After you test drive the car the salesman might bring up if you plan to trade in your old car; slowly tell him no, you hadn't planned on it….drag your voice when you say it. Then say, "I mean, I don't know, how much can you give me for it?" Whatever price he tells you, negotiate if you feel it's worth more (make sure you check the worth of it online before you go in). Then GET HIS OFFER IN WRITING. He should also tell you how many days the offer is good. Then LEAVE. Get off the lot! SCRAM! Don't stand there hanging around. Now, if you go back to buy the car you test drove, and decided you DO want to trade you car in, take the offer that was giving to you in writing, but keep in your purse or pocket. Once you're in the salesman's office, he'll write up all the paperwork and then slide it over to you to look over. Then pull out the paper with the trade in offer on it, and say, "You know, I think I'll trade my car in after all; what would the new total be?" He'll probably turn 50 shades of red and blue, and be mad as a bull! But don't act intimidated or back down. Just sit there calm and pleasant and wait. When you do it this way, they can't screw you over on a trade deal; telling them you'll trade right away means they'll either give you less for you trade than they should, or try and make that money back on the sale of the new car. Keeping whether you'll trade you car or not until the last minute means you now have both the trade in offer AND the new car offer in writing and they can't renege on either!

    Second reason you should show up at dealership: To sign paperwork and take possession of you car. That's it. Never go into a dealership blind, wandering, dropping by on a whim, or unprepared. Do all your shopping online; contact the internet sales manager by email. He may want to give you his number, but don't use it for negotiating…negotiate completely through email.When you and the salesman settle on a price, then write him back and ask for the sales paperwork to be emailed to you showing the final negotiated price, taxes, tag, registration, doc fees, and any other charges included in the sale. Find out the average doc fee in your state; if your state has no cap on doc fees, that's even more reason the to check the average. Dealerships will try to make money on doc and administration fees. Once you know what it should be in your state, ask for a discount according to how high it is vs. what you know the average should be. 

    Once you've negotiated, print out the final sales agreement emailed to you, and take it with you. In fact, print out ALL the back and forth emails and take them with you. Don't let them add anything to deal when you get there either: Gap insurance, this and that protection for your new car seats, blah blah blah. Skip it! And get approved financing before you go! Email negotiating allows you to be in the privacy of your home, call friends or family for advice if needed, no one's staring at you while you try and decide on one of the biggest purchases of your life, and you can take all the time you need to return the emails in the process. And if you just realize you don't like the way the negotiating is going, just email back and say you've changed your mind. I swear, it's the best way to buy a car; especially if you're shy or easily intimidated. GOOD LUCK!
