You can access almost every dealers website and request an email quote. You can also direct that no salesman call you. If they won*t quote your via email, go on to another dealer. You can also go to one of the online sites that specialize in finding a particular used car. www.autotrader.com is an example. You can search for the particular vehicle just by using the search on your browser. When it comes time to speak directly to a salesperson, having all the information will allow you to make the deal you want and not be talked into something your aren*t comfortable signing.
You can also use Ask Patty, click on http://www.askpatty.com/getaquote.php and get a quote from a female friendly dealer.

Check out www.autotrader.com and www.ebaymotors.com for used car inventory near you. Most vehicles have prices. If you request a quote, be sure to cite in the comments that you prefer to only communicate via email. This way you will be able to keep a salesman at arm*s length!
If you*re interested in a new car, AskPatty.com offers you the ability to get a quote. Here is the link:
Also, independent pricing guides are available like www.edmunds.com, www.kbb.com and www.nadaguides.com are all third-party sites to help you make sure you are getting a value!
Thanks for your question!
