One of the biggest mistakes that people make when haggling with a car dealer is to approach the situation like a battle. Any experienced salesman knows that the only path to long-term success is to get on the same team as their customer. They don't intend to sell you something you don't want. They intend to help you find exactly what you need, so that you'll recommend them to your close friends. Go in ready to work with them; assume they are honest until they make you feel otherwise. By starting from a place of trust, you will be able to cut through most of the typical sales nonsense, and get down to what really matters.
The easiest way to foster fear is through a lack of information. When you take part in a negotiation without doing the proper prep work, there is no way for you to know if the salesman is giving you all the facts. Know what sort of vehicle you want, as well as the exact specs, features, and upgrades that are available. You should also plan to visit more than one car dealer and compare prices. One of the easiest ways to create a frank conversation about price is to simply come out and say what you were offered at another location.
While most people wish that buying a car was as easy as shopping at the grocery store, the reality is that it is in your best interest to be able to negotiate. A savvy consumer coming into a negotiation with the right attitude will always come out ahead. Those that spend their entire buying process looking for cheaters will cheat themselves out of finding the kind of car dealer who intends to work for them, not against them.

Consumers often watch out for car dealers. The common consensus is that salesmen set out to deplete pocketbooks and offer disadvantageous prices to their customers. This assumption is far from the truth, however. Dealers expect and welcome their customers' negotiation, and they look forward to striking deals that allow both sides to prosper. The negotiation ball is in the consumer's court. It's up to the consumer to know how to negotiate to find the most effective outcome possible. The following are three crucial tactics to keep in mind when sealing the deal over a vehicle.
Car dealers make the bulk of their make money from commissions. This is an useful tidbit to consider when negotiating for your dream vehicle. It is not in the seller's best interest for you to ignore the deal, so if you negotiate within reason, you will likely be able to drive that car off the lot with a price that works for you. Don't hesitate to drive a hard bargain. Shoot below your preferred price wide range to see how much of a discount you could be able to score. Quote an offer equal to 25 percent off of the asking price. The seller won't prefer to withhold the sale on principle if your suggested price is lower than expected. His profession dictates that he should expect you to negotiate a lower price, and he is trained to counter your offers until you meet in the middle. Don't pay too much for what you want, but don't ignore it either.
The first lesson you learned in kindergarten was to use your manners. This rule applies to buying cars as well. Stick to that priceless lesson when making your purchase, and you will develop a good rapport with each seller you encounter. Being courteous counts for a lot, even if you and your car dealer don't see eye to eye. Even the most ruthless salesman is more likely to relent on his asking price if your disposition is down-to-earth and you treat him with respectful consideration. When you have to disagree, do so diplomatically. You can be a firm negotiator without pulling out the punches.
