Currently Buying (Dealership tactics) - in Florida

Hi guys.

I started posting a few weeks back as I prepared for the eventuality of getting a new car. I felt like I did pretty well on my last car, but this time around I am not in as strong of a position as I was previously.

I am also in a new area of the country (I was in Ohio and am now looking to purchase in Florida) where some of the dealerships seem to have a different approach.

Thus far, as I am looking at purchasing used, virtually every dealership has stated that they are "non commission, no negotiation" and "Best Price First" dealerships. So they tell me that is the best price and there is no negotiating.
Can anyone speak to or about this new approach? I get some dealers maybe more of a "high volume" dealership that really does use this tactic with great success. But of about the 9 different dealerships I have interacted with, one was a cash only no finance and the other eight have been this "best price" tactic.

I feel like this maybe a ploy to just kind of force out anyone looking to start negotiating with them but I am not certain that this is literally thee best deal. It seems just like another way for them to push off possible reduced prices. I know this is a bit of a curveball, asking just about dealership tactics but does anyone have any input? Hi guys.

Am I being paranoid?

Any ideas/input/suggestions would really be appreciated.

Thanks
