Competition Always Gets You the Lowest New Car Price

When negotiating a new car's price, it’s important to know the dealer invoice price and what other people are paying for the same vehicle in your local area. Otherwise, you won’t know what's a good price to pay for the car.

As always, I highly recommend using an online referral service such as Edmunds Price Promise or TrueCar No Haggle Pricing, their quotes will automatically include any discounts or cash-back incentives currently available in the marketplace.
