Default buying new vehicle

How much can I expect to negotiate down the asking price from a dealer? When do the 2011's come out?

That depends on every manufacturer. Go to a site like edmunds.com and get an idea of what the dealer's invoice on a particular vehicle is. My general rule everytime I have bought a car is that I will not pay more than $50-100 over invoice.

As for the 2011's, that also depends one each manufacturer. Some 2011's are out already, while other companies won't be releasing their 2011's till fall. Ford won't be releasing their all new 2011 Exploror till this winter.

I was hoping to get a really good deal on a 2010 since the new models are coming out. By really good deal, I was thinking of 1000's off.

That is going to depend on manufacturer to manufacturer and also what customer demand for a car is. Keep in mind that many manufacturers are offering incredible rebates and incentives to buy a car. For the easiest way to negotiate, I would recommend that you look up what you want to buy on Edmunds and see what other people in your region are paying for that exact same vehicle. From there, you'll know what you can expect. Typically, I just negotiate $50-100 over invoice plus all incentives. Some slow selling cars might even sell for below invoice, but usually this is a pretty fair deal.

The important thing to remember is to make fair offers, and never insult the dealer as they will no longer take you seriously. Go in knowing what a vehicle is worth in your area, and make it fair. You may want to make them a low-ball offer at first to have a base to work from, but make sure it is a low-ball offer that isn't so crazy that it insults them.

Was able to get about 6k off the sticker. Really happy with the deal. On a scale of 1 to 10, it was a 9.

It depends on the Car you want..

I remember last year the Queen(MY GF), was in the market for a new jeep. She wanted the 4 door wrangler. Well we found the one she wanted, prob the nicest jeep wrangler I have seen yet.. It looks like the Black OPS edition one. lol

She got over 8 g's off the sticker.. Jeep had all these incentives going on, and she got the loyalty discount, as well as, having her own financing, that was another grand off the price. She mad out like a bandit.. I couldn't belive it.. I thought it was going to be worse then what it turned out to be.. The Jeep was an 09 bought in March of 09, with 5 miles on it..

It depends on what you want, and what is out there, as well as, the dealer..

I wish you luck..

It's really hard to know.
I mean one car we have we paid $1200 below sticker, and the manager of the new car dealership is a relative. I even double checked by asking a different dealer to match the offer and they said no. This is on a 2010 Caddilac

Another car we bought for $1400 below invoice, 2009 VW for my business. Another VW from the same dealership a year prior was bought at invoice. Now on both of these deals, the dealership certainly made money.

On a 2008 Volvo, the dealership sold us the car for $5000 below window sticker, plus there was a $4500 rebate from Volvo

I believe it all depends on the volume they move.. That goes for used and new.. New, you will have discounts, and other incentives to buy from said maker of car/suv/truck.. So, you may get more off the price, but you may be still paying more in the long run for the car.. Newer, usually means more money..

Used, you usually save by not taking the hit of a new car.. You can haggle with the dealers, but each dealer is different, and they try not to lose money.. They try to go buy the kelly blue book, so if you're buying used, look up the prices of the car/s you want, then go from there..

Deals can be had anywhere, it all depends on if you're in that location at that exact time..

Good luck with your search..

Haggling on a used car can be a bit more difficult because you go into negotiations with less information. You have no idea how much the dealer paid for the vehicle, and you have even less information on the history of the vehicle. You don't even know how well it was maintained, as I find most people i've met in my life to totally neglect this part of the vehicle ownership aspect. It can be even worse if you get stuck with a vehicle that was part of a rental fleet, or leased by a dickhead. The good thing about rental fleets though is that they usually do not neglect basic maintenance.

I think the thing to keep in mind is that dealers almost always buy a vehicle based on the black book and not the blue book. As a result, that will give you an idea of how much room for haggling you have. If you are buying a certified used vehicle that has comes with a special warranty and stuff, do not expect to get a very generous discount as you are trading off margins for extra peace of mind. Dealers generally love the used car market because they usually make more money from it than from selling new cars. This is likely because information is more imperfect and they can take advantage of that.
