Always remember that the sales man is your friend and he's there to help. :)

My best advice is go in there knowing what they paid for the car(s) you are looking at. So when you try to talk them down they can feed you the BS that they are loosing money on the car, sometimes they will try to lure you to a higher price with dealer installed options that the dealer didn't pay for. If they want to talk abot financing off the bat and think they are going to get you in the car that quick, not worth your time. On the same note if they treat you like crap, either find another sales person, that will piss them off, or just find another dealership.

I just always rememeber that he's my friend and he's there to help. They're so nice, and they always my interest first, trying to find me a car. :)

Know only one thing: the car saleman is a thief. A well trained one.

heres a useful tip, dont wear an expensive watch / pair of shoes / etc etc when you walk in to the showroom... whats the point in bargaining the price down when the guy can clearly see you can afford the asking price

Don't let them pressure you into buying and making it sound like its your last chance. They always like to do this. Sit you down in there office get all feeling good and coasy in there chairs. :rolleyes:

Its very simple. For 99% of dealers, he wants your money more than you need the car. Besides, there are many dealers. Take the lead, you're the one in the commanding position even if you dont initially feel that. If youre part exchanging, add a couple of thousand to your car's value, at least. If he doesnt give you a decent price, tell him "ive been offered <a larger amount> for it". Put the ball in his court. Dont feel like you need to be talking all the time. Take your time to think and say things that will leave him silent. Ask him direct questions, dammit he's your servant! :hehe:

i saw this thing on tv about car salesmen. if you go on their lot and you talk with a salesman the salesmen have to take you inside they just cant let you leave or they will get money taken from their paycheck

if you can, take "the other guy" out of the picture (the one that he will leave the room to go talk to about the price) if you can do this and have just you and the salesman you will be better off. i know you won't be able to do this 100% but the less he goes and talks to "the other guy" the better
