BEATING PRICE DOWN

Asked by Nov 12, 2017 at 07:11 AM

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

Is it possible that the prices of cars on
CarGurus be reduced drastically if u
bargain with the dealer especially if one is
willing to pay CASH instead of monthly
payments? For example if a car is listed as
$4,500 , can I beat down to let's say
$3,000 or $3,200 if I'm willing to pay at
once no bs.

Private sellers and dealers can take whatever they want for their vehicles. I doubt many have a 33% mark up though. Well, per your example, I doubt that someone selling a car for 4500 would take 3000 unless they are hard up. Cash is always king.

Most dealers will drop 15% of asking price with some haggling. For a $4500 car, you should n't be making payment anyhow. Paying cash vs check is negligible. Like the coach said above, you would just insult the seller. Expect to get it for around $4000 unless there is damage or flaws.
