    I don’t know where in the United States you are finding these dealers that are flooded with cars and willing to deal. I have been to multiple dealers from Northern Virginia to Central Virginia. None of the dealers I have spoken with are willing to negotiate new or used vehicle prices more than a couple hundred dollars. In fact, they appear to be rather indignant that I even brought up the possibility of negotiating the price at all. You live a charmed life.

    I have been watching you on You Tube for about a year and I have listened to all of the advice. I live in Rhode Island and our sales tax is 7%. I have been planning my move to buy since August. I had a trade in however it was in need of some repairs, had a cracked casing around the left side mirror, and had 100K miles on it. I played the game to see what I could get for it at dealerships for a trade and they appraised it between $5200- $7600. I went on you free site and received offers between $4700 and $10600. Car Max offered $11K about 7 days ago. I took the $11K and deposited it for a down payment later in the month. I got a pre-approval from NFCU at 4.54% in the event I needed to use financing. I emailed 7 local dealership sales managers directly asking for the best Out the Door Price for specific VINS on three different cars: Jeep Compass, Mazda CX 50, and Hyundai Santa Fe SEL. Six responded with a couple coming down a little and the rest basically taking the MSRP, adding the fees and taxes. I test drove the CX 50 as I never dove one before. Not a bad car but cramped in the back. Jeep was a no go as well. I emailed the Hyundai dealerships back again and one in particular (Hyundai Of Newport) told me to come see the Sales Manager /GM directly. No joke…here was my deal: MSRP with everything added: $36,205.00 He offered it to me at$33,205 plus if I financed with HMF, $1,000 rebate if I took the 0.0% financing as well as reminding me that Hyundai would give me $500. in a Miliary/Veteran rebate (which I knew about). I took the deal and literally got the fully loaded 2023 Santa Fe SEL out the door: Vehicle, Taxes, Title Tags, Fees, financing at 0.0% for $34,550. That by itself with everything included…everything…is 9.5% below the original MSRP of $36,205. They did a great job with no haggle or shenanigans – it was beautiful
