They move or you move.

Sticker price is only for a vehicle that sells like hotcakes. Need to find the slow runner and buy at the end of the quarter and during the week or rainy days.

You want to go opposite tye crowd. Dont be afraid to be unreasonable, come up with a price and keep offering it u til someone bites

If you bought used cars the situation may be different.

New cars all depends upon what the dealer is after - moving product. Some product moves fast, other product doesnt. If it doesnt move fast, better prices are more likely, especially if theyre sitting on it.

Used vehicles depend upon their understanding of demand, and the cost structure of what they paid to get the vehicle...

In the past I was able to walk and they would chase me down before I got out if the parking lot and try to haggle. The last couple of times they let me walk.

Yep,if a stealer is proud,WALK. In my experience,it's the sleazy small town stealers that are always like that.

That seems to be pretty common... I guess too many people are paying full sticker price these days?

When my Mom wanted to buy her new Matrix (back in '06) we talked to the Toyota dealers here-none of them here in greater Cincinnati wanted to make a good deal, at all. Went to Frankfort, KY-got around $3500 off sticker with no problem. Don't be afraid to walk, there's always another dealer who wants a sale!

If you're talking about that FJ in you sig not surprising. If he doesn't sell it today he'll probably sell it for more next month. Happens when you buy a vehicle with a cult following.

The "Road" I move on is the electronic highway. Bought my last new car using a 500 mile range from home, got an array of prices and started working them via e-mail. When we got down to an acceptable spread, got on the phone with them. Took 15 minutes and 3 phone calls (them calling me back.)
I have found best focus is a small(er) town dealer close to a metro area. I live 20 minutes N of Columbus, and bought my last car from a dealer just S of Canton.
When I bought the Ranger in my signature (used,) they told me 9K take it or leave it. I bought it two weeks later for $5500. Always start out being nice, but don't hesitate to explore and exploit your "Inner jerk" at the proper moment.
