  • To add to this: First of all, when I go car shopping I miss my ex because he always looked angry and mean so while I was trying to negotiate on the car, if I got in stuck he'd just get up and walk out, and we'd get the deal. He was awful at negotiating but he was a great visual aid. Don't just be ready to walk away, do it! Also, go out to get a deal. The dealer will know what you want it will be up to them whether they give you what you want. As long as they make money, it's good for everyone. Plus, those of us who really want a deal like to brag but we generally protect information like how exactly how much $ and how we did it so we go brag that we got a killer deal at XYZ Dealership and that is good for business. I also like to try to find either the newest or the oldest member of the team. I only ever go to the dealership to buy and the new guy often needs the sale. The oldest guy is often comfortable and has proven himself so he can afford to let a deal through. I also never deal with a dealership that treats me like an idiot because I am a female. I've walked out of a few dealerships never to return because of that, and told everyone I know to never shop there. I've learned that those guys are never going to give me a deal, and it's insulting! Finally, be willing to drive to another market. If part of your state is suffering financially, you might get a better deal there than close to home. Gotta friend living in a hard hit area, a weekend of visiting and car shopping might be in order. Plus, you'll provide a boost to the areas economy.
