The Power of Cash

Okay! So I'm looking at a 2013 GT Premium and it'd have a msrp of about 37k. Now that's too much at this ooint ,but with some wicked negotiation skills and me paying cold hard cash what could I get the dealer down to you think?

the dealer really doesnt care if its cash or check or financed as they get their cash asap regardless.

Yea it might be easier for the dealer but they get thier money right away no matter how you pay. If its financed they just get a check from whoever financed you. It might be easier for them to take cash because it saves them the time of calling around to get you financed but don't expect a huge discount. That being said if you push them hard enough you can almost always get it for a little less than they were asking.

Good luck!

You are aware you cant walk into a dealer with over 10k in cash and expect them to sell you a car. Try it and let us know how well that goes for you haha

They don't give a crap about $$$$$$$$$

I would save any GOLD anyone has for the financial collapse

Any who........ You could probably get them down to 35-36K

I always heard to go into the stealership and haggle them down like you're financing then pay cash. Heard they would give better deals when you finance because they are making money off the interest as well as the car.

I always get pre approved by my lender before I even go look at a new car. I call the shots, the dealer doesn't tell me what they can do for me. That's how you get screwed. I bought my 2011 5.0 in July of 2010. Msrp was 34k. The grand total I paid was 29,500. Plus 7 oil changes, window tint, under coating and something else... Eh, I can't remember.

I just picked up a 2012 GT/CS with 6k miles on it for 28.5K cash otd with 3 free oil changes. I did alright with it I think... like stated before, the dealer gets paid right away no matter what, sometimes even incentives on financing so cash could be worse in some cases.

Make sure you tell them you're not going to pay the $500.00 Document fee! They hate to see me coming. Normally will take it out of the price of the car. Their argument is that "everyone pays that fee". My answer is then everyone else is stupid!

Last time I was at the ford dealer buying a car for my sister, the sales guy said "we hate cash, we make more money from the finance", but two months ago my friend went to buy a new Honda, and the dealer cut 3k from the original price because my friend paid half the amount cash!

Haha I like that! Yeah my brother told me its non-negotiable, and I shook my head.

I say fine, I don't have to buy the car here, and walk-out if they aren't willing to budge.

I consider 150-200 a reasonable doc fee. They do recover some of the costs associated with filing the papers, recoupe some overhead.
