I have to say I got an absolute steal on my automatic 07 GS Eclipse in Sunset Pearl but it really came at a price and my time. I got the car with 2 miles and it cost me, are you ready??? $16,400.
The dealership was having a killer sale which of course no one qualifies for and I happened to qualify for all of it, which in total was about $4500 off. They tried killing the deal several times b/c they were losing money. But I persevered and got the car. It was an absolute nightmare going through them because of the General Manager lied through his teeth, insulted me, even tried bait & switch, and then said he wouldn't sell the car to me b/c of my trade. They had a deal going on that they would give you $2,000 for any car you could drive, pull, or push in. So I knew a guy who was selling his car for $200, so naturally I got that car to trade in instead of my 99 eclipse which was worth more than $2k. They obviously didn't want to stand behind there ad, but b/c it was in the paper/radio they were really forced to. I spent a week of my life doing everything in my power to get the car, and they spent a week of there life doing everything to not sell me the car.
As a final note, The other Mitsubishi dealership by my house is great to work with, so I am not saying all Mitsubishi dealerships are like that. It was honestly just the General Manager at the dealership I went through that made my car buying experience such a nightmare. Plus when is car buying ever easy

That's funny. You got yours at Lonestar Mitsubishi in San Antonio. I got mine there too. Drove all the way from Austin. I got it the end of March for 16500 in black incl. Sunroof. They were super nice and gave me great interest. Took a little negotiation but Highly Recommended
#40 of 75 2007 Eclipse Spyder GT Price
Jul 29, 2007 (2:11 am)
I negotiated what I think is a good deal on a new 2007 Eclipse Spyder GT with the Premium Sport GT Package and the Accessory Package. 27,584.95 for the car, when invoice according to Edmunds is 30,127 (including a $625 destination fee, which I try never to pay, which would make it 29,492). My 27,584.95 price includes a $500 college grad rebate. I didn't finance through Mitsu, so I don't really know how the dealership did it, but apparently there was "another" $500 rebate which they gave me (the only one I came close to qualifying for made me finance w/ them, but whatever). That would still put me at 28,492, so I'm guessing this dealer really wanted to push this '07 off the lot. W/ all my fees (8.25% tax, various CA fees- doc prep, license, etc.), I was at $30,150 OTD. A good deal, I think, though things did get unpleasant in the end. But oh well, as long as I find no problems with this car (and it's new, so hopefully there shouldn't be), I am all good.
My advice, find the dealer who has several of the older models on his lot (including the one car you would actually buy, so no need for dealer trade), and go from there. Of course, do like Edmunds advises, and only talk OTD numbers.
BTW, thanks, Edmunds, for all the great tips- this is my second car purchase, and I used y'all to get a decent deal both times.
