How much can I get off of a car?

There is a car listed at $10,900 at a car dealership and the price has never changed and it’s been on the lot for 40 days so I was wondering what a fair offer would be for it

    Depends on the year, make and model of the car an its current market value.

    Have you looked it up, ner? If you are serious about finding what would be a fair price for this particular automobile it's time to do so. Ya reckon?

    Any offer below the amount on the car will be met with resistance and/or feigned offense.

    If you have cash, the best bet is to walk onto the lot with the amount you feel like it is worth, and lay it out in front of them. You would be amazed how much more amicable they will be when they see the actual bills, and not just a guy trying to talk them down.

    $9250 probably. What I do is do a search on craigslist and autotrader for a 200 mile search, then search for the exact same car with similar miles. Maybe you'll be able to find one a 100 miles away for $9200, print it out, take it to the dealer and tell him to match it or you will buy it from him. The next way is to find a similar car on another car lot, tell him the other dealer will sell his to you for 9200 but you will buy it from him if he will match the price.

      I'm SURE the dealers have NEVER seen that game before. Man, you're a smart one...

    Not very bright, there Charlie.

    Get all of the specifics on the vehicle and do some research. Go to Kelley Blue book, www.kbb.com. Input all of the information and get a suggested retail price. Compare it to the asking price on the vehicle you have in mind. You may find out that the asking price is fair.

    If you are willing to pay Cash for it, most places will come down off the listed price, how much is different for each place.

    So many variables... who knows?

    Maybe they got it for $8000 in trade, and they don't mind it sitting for awhile. Maybe they own all of their cars outright (not floored) and they don't need to push them in a hurry.

    Offer them what you think is a fair number ($9K on a car selling for $11K won't happen). Worst they can do is say "no". But, the days of having dealers beg you to return are long gone.

      OH... and don't forget... dealers would MUCH rather you pay cash for a "magic" discount!
