That's how u do it. I went to buy a car and a salesman said my estimate monthly payment is $510. I said no way... I can only afford $320. He was like ok... Let's see what I can do. He ended up dropping 3k on a new car and I was trading in my old car in. They overvalue my old car big time. CarMax offered me $1,000 for my old car and they gave me $4,000. He also asked me for $1,500 cash but deferred my payments 3 months. So after everything we agreed to $341.

I've only used dealer financing once, and that's because it was ridiculously low interest. My payments were just north of $200 a month. Any other times, I've used bank or credit union financing. The last vehicle I bought from a dealer, I talked $4100 off the original price ($18600 to $14500) After negotiating with their finance department for a while, I gave my trusty old financial institution a call. The best the dealership could offer was 5ish % APR and $330ish a month. The ended up with 3.85% and $256 a month and a smaller down payment. I had to pay like 6 more months of payments and had to wait a few more hours at the dealership, but was well worth it.

Yeah the rate i got was not that great, but not terrible. I had a few credit issues a few years back because i let a friend poo on me for some rent money. That put me a little behind for awhile. I should be clear of that in about a year, but wanted to get in to something new before i had any major problems with my unwarrantied car. You best believe i will be going to a credit unión in about a year to refinance. The good news was they dropped the price way below sticker and up the value on my trade about 1,500 bucks when everything was done because i was adament about the rate being too high. After the refinance i should be a good bit below what i wanted to be paying a month to begin with. Crazy how long it took though. Four years ago i went to a second hand dealer and i swear it was like an hr process tops.

If their first offer was the same payment you finally agreed on would you have said yes on their first offer?

I did it once because the specific car I wanted was only available at one dealership in the US, the next one like it was not comong for another couple of months, and I had to travel to Rhode Island to get it which took a week to plan.

    • This rookie class really seems like a group of hungry football players, not just athletes.  Guys like CMC, Samuel, Moton etc.. all seem like they are gym rats with a passion for the game.  Pair them up with this stellar locker room and film rats like Luke and this could be Gettlemans best draft ever.  Give me guys with football intelligence and passion for the game over egotistical  athletic freaks all day. 
    • So you are saying we should ignore all the wrongs of history and the wrongs of present day?  Our country isn't ignoring race.  What you're saying isn't rooted in what the reality is, because when we do look at race, we see how ugly this country is.  Once things are set right, once injustice has been redressed, then I'll be satisfied.  How many times have black people had to start over in this country?  I'm tired of ignoring race, only to have my stuff burned down again and starting over.
    • So you choose to look at people based on race instead of them as an individual person. When you put it that way, you'll never be satisfied. Grouping people into race categories that have nothing to do with a person's character, personality, or any of the sort will always show a variation in data across all groups under that category. It's virtually impossible to make race groups all the same due to the fact it has nothing to do with any one of those people's characteristics, which are random and probability showing it's impossible for everything to be equal.
