Regardless of asking price vs. market value? That seems like a silly strategy. If it's a good deal, it's a good deal, regardless of whether or not you get there by haggling.

There's always a deal. Still there was some major discounting back in 2009 when the market had collapsed in 2008. Car production also suffered as they made 2/3 the number of cars in the previous year. Probably have to wait for it though.

May be a big influx of used cars hitting the market soon. Probably lots of Honda's and Toyota's because of demographics.

My guess is you can take advantage of the current market; my guess is you can do pretty well.
Just as in any market, play the sellers off each other.
Good luck.

Maybe you could try a new Pilot? I drove by the Marysville, OH Honda dealer today which has 101 Pilots in stock. They have tons of CR-V's, Pilots and Civics parked at that dealer along U.S. 33.

Well I'm sure you could try a new Pilot, but realistically, who really wants to?

Auto sales in the West Palm Beach area have plummeted. Dealerships are starting to "get it" and offering deals. Also the FED lowered the rate to 0 percent, so new and used car loans should be trending down to the lowest rates now. Bankrate is now showing the average new car loan is just over 4%.

I believe manufacturers will also start offering incentives. I hope to see some 0% loans from Ford and GM.

I also need a car and I'm going to make offers on 2019 leftovers. I even found 3 Chevy Volt 2018 leftovers. I'd like one if the price were low enough.

0 percent interest rates to .25 % should be cheap money if you need to borrow it. Thanks, Trump. frown

Even in these challenging times, the dealers still want to maximize profit. Nothing wrong with that.

When I first met my wife, we went to a used car lot where I wanted to look at a Mazda. They were asking $6500. After some back and forth, what can you do for the price, how much you wanna pay, blah, blah, blah, they asked me to name my price and write it on this little piece of paper. I was thinking $5000. My g/f, whose ex was a car salesman, said to write down $3000. I thought they'd throw us out. They came down to $3250 and went came up to $3200 and the deal fell through. We walked. They chased after us and said they'd do the deal for $3200. We said, too late and left. Taught me a lot about negotiations. It's totally not personal to the dealers. They don't get offended. Tell them what you'll pay and what you want.

No owing a timing belt job unless you really trust them. Have them knock a thou off or have them do the job and warranty it.

I doubt you’l see write-off / fire sales for now given the consensus that this will be a six week to couple of months disruption. Low interest loans may be an incentive.

I’m curious how all the folks who are not traveling or taking kids to practice while now working from home (myself included) will impact repair/service shops. Less car use = delayed need for oil changes, new tires, etc. How long will take to show up?

With all the uncertainty going in now? It's gotta be a buyer's market.

Under normal days, I always had great luck buying around Christmas time. I'll never forget the sales staff playing euchre on 12/23 many years ago when I bought a Wrangler from them.

Due to CV and market uncertainty, the dealerships will be emptier than usual.
