Negotiate an "out the door price." This phrase is increasingly more
common at dealers, maybe especially because internet sales and
negotiating is cutting down on the bs that has long typified dealer
haggling. "Out the door price" means you are not messing around, and
neither are they. They will figure out how to deal with their admin
etc. costs using the bottom line price that you accept.
This is exactly what we did. Of course, we had the advantage of
holding a checkbook. I said "we will write a check for this amount"
and handed him a piece of paper. He took off, came back in a few
minutes with a form that came out to twenty-seven cents less. That
was for a 2007 Camry. The 2008 Fit was a little tougher, but the only
things on there were the car, taxes and registration fees and, hmm,
nothing else. Dealer prep? They have a sign that says "we don't
charge for ..." and lists all the BS charges.
