galever....Assuming you are talking FWD and not 4WD, the sticker price is $27,324. The invoice should be $25,962. Both these numbers could be a hundred or so higher or lower depending on the area of the country. The regional ad fee varies from one region to another. I would first agree to some amount relative to the invoice price, e.g., $100 over invoice. If the dealer goes for that (25,962 + 100 = 26,062), then subtract any rebates. We have no rebates now in my area, only the 0% 5 year financing. Add in the tax, tags, fees and that should be your offer. Just be careful they don't rip you on the fees. Zero percent financing is the same as a huge rebate so take it if you can. If you can't take advantgage of the financing because of a credit problem, I would just wait a month or two until they start offering a rebate again. Last month there was a $500 rebate and it should only get bigger as the year progresses. Here is a website where you can check out these numbers.

Ok, the MSRP would be $1390 more for the 4WD. Just go to that website I mentioned and build it yourself.

A diploma is enough. If you've not received your diploma yet, some dealers still accept the official congratulations letter from your college saying something like "the final audit was completed and your diploma is on the way."
