Hi there, I thought I would throw in my .02 for you to ponder. Firstly, I just ignore all that crap about sales and whatnot. Don't let them close you on that. If they try, feel free to use my line. "Thank you for wanting me to have this obviously amazing, once-in-a-lifetime deal; however, the end of the month comes every single month so I think I will be okay." In other words, every time these guys start hiting the end of the month, they start pushing. Don't let that I am missing the deal of the world feeling push you too fast. That is what they are counting on. What I usually do is root around a great place to read reviews on all cars new and used. They can also give you ideas on trade-in value and how much the car should really be selling for. If you already know these things, you will know if you are getting a great deal. Let's face it, those deals they offer only really look good in red marker on the car windshield. Once you go a little deeper, you find out you are still getting screwed! Just like in stocks, research is key! Good Luck!
