i have bought 2 new vehicles in the past few years. a 2008 accord coupe, for the wife and recently a 2011 grand cherokee, for the wife. the jeep was a 2011 model bought in oct of 2010, so with it being a new car model i knew there was not a lot of wiggle room. but what has worked for me in the past with all new cars i have bought, even with my dodge ram diesel in '04, i basically picke dout the vehicle i wanted and told them what i was willign to pay per month. and well, i have three new vehicles to show that it works. yeah they play their game of we just cant do that vehicle for that amonunt, or what ever, and they keep coming back until i just tell them, either you want to sell it or not. for example the dodge startd at $750+ per month, i told them i was not payinng more than $500. and after about 45 minutes of him walking back and forth doing his BS, i walked out with a $42k+ truck fro $506 per month with GAP insc. same thing on the honda and the jeep. i make them wortk their end of the numbers to make the deal work. i never come out of pocket mroe than a couple thousand down. the dodge i put down 1k im thinking (been a while) the honda was not more than 1500 and the jeep i think 2k. interest rate on the jeep is right at 3% so im good with that. i dont look at the sticker price, i want to know what its gonna cost me per month. not sure if that helps or not...i also usually try to deal directly with the sales manager, that helps speed things up. i think i was at the jeep place for about 1.5 hrs when we bought it, thats including the test drive.
