Okay, my wife is 8 months pregnant and we realize we are going to have to get her a different car i.e. 4 doors. She currently has a 2003 2 door honda civic with 90k on it. We went to a nissan "stealership" tonight and left really frustrated. First off, they kept changing the price on the car we were interested in i.e. salesman and manager were saying 2 different things. Then they wanted to give us $4k for our car I told them it retailed for $9k according to kbb & private sale listed $7,200 and he just stared at me. I realize they aren't going to pay full retail, but $4k was a joke. I've put the car on craigslist and haven't had a ton of interest. Maybe I need to slash the price a little more. Anyways, we were frustrated, because the guy said he couldn't come off the price of the car we were interested in. I told him we weren't paying sticker for the car and he said he had never heard of this sticker pricing stuff. I said may I please have my keys. He continued to argue and involve other managers when I finally said I want my keys now and we left. For the future, what can I do better to get the best deal?? Should I negotiate through email before ever setting foot on the property? Any ideas? We wasted 3 hours of lives and I surely don't want to do that again. Lastly, we are wanting to sell the civic and pay the remainder with cash, so we won't incur any debt out of this deal. PS: Sorry for the novel.
