#19 of 20 Invoice Price is not really the Invoice Price
May 09, 2011 (7:45 pm)
Car manufacturers print an invoice price that is not really what the dealer pays - check with Consumer Reports. For $12 US you can find out the true price, or even the price of that exact car. The dealer gets rebates based on volume and other similar hidden incentives. Often a dealer can realistically sell for several hundred below invoice and still be making a comfortable profit. In some cases, the dealer will actually sell close to his true price if he anticipates that he will make money on service from you, or if he can fudge the figures around legally with respect to a trade-in. And watch out for last second add-ons. I am not 100% sure but I have heard that even the freight figure is bogus. A few years back I bought a car in Illinois and took delivery in Florida - the freight from Illinois to Florida was not very much compared to the freight charges on those invoices. Best of luck
