how do I negotiate the best price on a Toyota Matrix?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Jenny Trostel, Partner at Anderson of Hunt Valley Start by doing some research on what the car is selling for. Be open to buying what the dealership has in stock. Know what your credit score is and what you plan to put down. Know what options you can live without and what you will accept on an in stock unit. Plan to walk away if you do not like the price. Be an expert shopper and you will get a great deal. Good Luck! Check out my womanar podcast going live on Monday here: http://www.askpatty.com/womanars.php I talk about all of this in the podcast!

Joy Sherman, Owner  at Ms. Motorcars Hi Allison, Shop at 2 or three different Toyota dealers and compare deals. If they're not willing to budge on price, ask for accessories or oil changes. Good Luck! Joy Sherman, Ms. Motorcars

Patty Streeter,  at AskPatty.com Allison, Unfortunately there is no golden rule on how to negotiate. Too bad there wasn't some secret out there! The best thing you can do is to be prepared and be knowledgable. The more you know about what you want, what other people are spending, how much you are willing to spend, and what your credit score is, the better off you will be to haggle and to stand firm on what you know is the best price.
