Got my eyes on this '17 GLC Benz

So it's a 2017 Benz in Omaha Nebraska. My Zip is 68147. Credit score between 720-50. MSRP $37988.
Selling at $36973. Comes with 18k miles. The on-site payment calculator is figured with my down payment of 6% ($2200 down) over 72 months, with $556/month before additional taxes. Vin #WDC0G4KB2HF191909

I didn't see the point in dropping a large sum for a down payment. But what sort of wiggle room could I negotiate here?

    $37988 is the dealer's advertised asking price, not the original MSRP, right?

    The $37988 is the dealer MSRP. They're selling for $36973.. A little lower than the MSRP

    Okay.... there is no MSRP. MSRP is the sticker price on a new vehicle, and a 2017 with 18K miles is not new. (M stands for Manufacturer).

    Post a description of the vehicle, here:

    Someone with access to auction reports can tell you what it's worth.

    The website clearly states an MSRP..

    They can stick the numbers wherever they want. If that is the MSRP, and they are only offering $1000 off, after two years and 18K miles, you should run away.

    But, don't do that, because that is not the MSRP. ;)

    It's a 2017 Benz GLC 300 AWD 4 Matic. CPO

    But yeah so how do I proceed if I want this vehicle at the more realistic price? Since $1k reduction isn't enough.

    Had me fooled, because I thought that this was an ok deal after googling the Vin.

    It might be a good deal. It would be instructive to know the actual original MSRP from the manufacturer's window sticker.

    But, I think you got a good answer in the other discussion.. check it out!
