17 AprHere we go again.

Tom is looking to get a new car this weekend. I have barely recovered from my recent new car buying experience. But he just won’t stop talking about it and this could just go ahead and shut him up. And really, with it getting close to 80 degrees today, is it fair to send him to work in our non-airconditioned, no-radio, rusted out car? Nope not really.

Tom is going to a dealership tonight on his own to talk numbers with a guy. I just gave him a pep talk. Tell them you want X over invoice Y for the trade and then walk away. Do not negotiate today. Do not give them any money or sign anything. The dealerships ad says make us a reasonable offer and that’s exatly what you are going there to do.

The thrill of negotiating? I love it.
