So now we're waiting for him to call tomorrow. I took an average of 26 2009 Rondo's in my area with under 100,000 km's and the average price is 10,890. So, naturally, I want him to come down more from 11,000. I'd be happy with 10,500.
1. What's a good strategy to use to get him down to that number? Two things I'm thinking of are "We got an insurance quote and it's higher than we anticipated, I know we said before we'd think about 11k, but now we really need to limit it to 10,500", or the very up-front "hey I did an assessment and 11k is a bit high compared to what's out there. I'd like you to get more in line which means bringing it down to around 10,500?" Do you think either of these sound reasonable?
2. Any good used car-haggling success stories?
3. Any general tips for negotiating?
I've been reading up as much as possible on what to look for and avoid when looking used and I think we're doing a good job so far but the negotiating thing is intimidating, especially because I'm a very honest person so this is just not up my alley.
