what was the trick in getting the price below invoice? what did you say? also, what do you think about this deal?
is it fair to negotiate it for OTD $$23,000 ? his offer was for $24,152 without TTL & Dealer Fee . What should I say to get it for $23,000??
THank you for any input from anyone.

Im looking at on 06 new gti manual hatchback that only has 8100 miles on it..?!!
The dealer price is around $19,000. TMV on edmunds is more like $12000.
Autocheck has it listed as a fleet, rental or lease car.
Does this sound like a good deal..if I can get the dealer down in price?
Im set to test drive this week.

For $12,000? Yeah, it would be a fair deal. For $19,000, no, total rip-off.

Most dealers / sales people are SHARKS. DON'T BUY IT !! that's not a FAIR price. I understand that they have to make some money from customers , however that price is NOT A FAIR DEAL.

I thought $19000 was too high..for that I may as well buy a new car!
I will show them the edmunds TMV..see what happens.
I go in on friday..thanks for the input

Becareful going back in. It just shows them that you REALLY want this car and that you are "sweating" them. Go in there with a solid goal (price) in your mind and if they don't budge then GET UP AND WALK OUT , PERIOD.

I will do that. So far I have only looked at the car from the outside when they were closed. There has only been email contact.

Well, the dealer won't budge on the price *at all*..in fact is now trying to re-direct me to an 07 Rabbit which is less $. Any thoughts? Is the Rabbit as good a car? He says the Rabbit and the Jetta are basically the same just different style...??????

I would personally find another dealership and get educated on the prices of the vehicles you are looking at. Check out autotrader for similar year/mile combinations and see what they are going for. Do some homework and you will be pleased that you aren't completely ignorant when talking with the dealers.
