How low can you go?

I am seriously thinking of purchasing a '06 GT coupe. The MSRP on the car I like is $28,375 and the invoice price is $26,532. How low do you think I can get the dealer down to before applying the $1,500 rebate? I was planning on offering $24,875 before the rebate. I am near the Houston area if that matters.

Actually, we may buy two vehicles at once . The other is a loaded '06 Eddie Bauer Expedition that stickers for $45,905 with an invoice price of $40,730. Buying two vehicles should give us some bargaining power in addition to the 2007 models being out for both cars. What you you pay on this one before rebates?

What do you think about requesting 0% APR for both? I don't think they will go for it but if they want to sell two vehicles near the end of the month when they have plenty of last years models still on the lot, I figure why not ask and see.

Thanks for any input.

I used to sell cars, and hated the business, hence why I left. But my dealer loved multiple car purhcasers. Here is why. They would haggle for hours over the first car, and usually the dealer would come out ahead. But on the second car, the customer usually believed that the dealer was now working with them, since the customer is such an excellent negotiator. Then the dealer would usually rape them on the second car because the the customer believed after haggling for hours onthe fisrt one that dealer would realize this customer is a force to be reckoned with and just make them a good deal.

In my opinion, if the dealer thinks the demand for the Mustang (or the Expedition) is high, they wont negotiate much on the price, especially since ther eis a rebate of any kind. If by chance you actually get a price below MSRP and then get the rebate, please share. I will be totally shocked if you get the car for below invoice and then get the rebate. Hey, stranger things have happened. My hats off to you if you pull it off.

I finally picked up an '06 GT premium yesterday. It is legend lime, parchment leather interior, manual transmission, Shaker1000, 18" premium wheels, active anti-theft system, side air bags, IUP, and locking lug nuts. The MSRP was $30,345 and I paid $27,500 including window tinting. I am satisfied with the purchase and absolutely love the car, especially the color combination. You don't see many legend lime GT's with parchment leather and a manual tranny. Also, the Shaker 1000 rocks!

Good deal!!!! Deals like this give us all inspiration. Curse me for having the need to be one of the first to own a GT vert. I should have been a good boy and waited a year or so...but then again, it would not have been in my nature to wait.
