Default Haggling with the salesman

I'm just curious if any of you were able to get the salesman to to lower the price and if so by how much? I am negotiating for a Longhorn CC 4X4 with all options except the ram box. air suspension and 8 speed transmition. I like the salesman (4th purchase from him) but always like to walk away with a good deal so I thought I would ask how everyone else was making out.

Yes, I mentioned TrueCar and also asked for any discounts for corporations and got more than wholesale for my trade. Mentioned extended warranty purchase online. Dealer located a truck 150mi away....

Upstate NY dealer gave >10% off MSRP + rebates ($1500) + >tradeIn wholesale above excellent cond. + extended warranty at online price.

I walked away very happy... and am driving new 2013 Sport with way more options than I would have ordered.

Good luck on your purchase...
Matt

I had Employee Pricing and was still able to talk my dealer down even further. Rebates and EP aside I got him down another $4k. Though they probebly only went that low because when I initially approached him I was up front saying I was waiting for the 8-speed. after they tried to pull one on me saying the 8-speeds were not coming out to try to get me to buy from the lot I basically said then I will go to a dealer who knows what they talking about and left. well when they got the 8-speeds in they called me wanting my business.

Your best bargining chip is knowledge if you know more or the same as them you can negotiate better.

all said and done I saved 18K

I would not waste my time with the showroom sales people
anyone that keeps up with this forumZ posts, know more then they do

go to the dealership's website, if a little window pops up on their site, likely it is a person from the dealerships Fleet/Internet Sales Dept.
That sales dept. can get the vehicle that you want & they will give you a no haggling price, usually they don't receive a commission on their sales
they also give you the discounts, etc. that are available
They also can find you a pre built Ram from other dealerships, which is something that the showroom sales people are not likely to do

Default Check all incentives

Hey guys. Make sure that you are checking into EVERY incentive that's available, and if possible, buy on the last day of the month. I just bought my 2013 slt bighorn 3 days ago and I got a 38k truck for 28k after all incentives and dealer haggle. The dealer was desperate and worked out good in my favor.

When I say check all incentives, look at your insurance carrier to see what their best interest rate is if you are financing. Take that to the dealer and sometimes they will knock money off to match the monthly payment. Good news here is that you just got another 1k knocked off the price and you can refinance at a later date for the lower payment with the other guys.

Also, check with your employer about chrysler affiliate rewards. This will get a small discount on purchases as well.

Hope my experience helped and good luck!

I usually plan on spending 3-4 hours at the dealer. And that includes me standing up threatening to walk out about 4 times, speak to the sales manager about 2 times, asking for my keys back before I negotiate, telling them I can go to another dealer, making them tint my windows and/or step/nerf bars and telling them it's the total price of the vehicle and not the payments..............
