Not really. I have bought more than one used car / van, at my price.

I did my homework, determined what a realistic price was, and told the sales guy, "I am willing to buy this vehicle today. No dicking around with financing, I have cash and am ready to close a deal. I am willing to pay $x,xxx.xx out the door, all taxes and fees included. Do you want to sell it, or shall I go elsewhere?"



A mind is a terrible thing.

And that works for new vehicles as well. Big Grin

But in David's case he has some disadvantages that a dealer will capitalize on. He has urgency and is dependent on others for transportation to and from. I think we need to have the grace to allow David to do what he wants here.



I'm sorry, I'm thinking about the cats again...

Is there anyone in David's area with connections to a car dealership that could help him out?

A dealer doesn’t need to know any of that. David has been handling negotiation via e-mail, which is appropriate, and most likely emailing multiple dealers for multiple vehicles.

Best one wins. As to urgency, he does need a vehicle, but it isn’t an urgent “must have one tonight because I need to get to work”. All the cards are in David’s hands.

Thank you. I am trying and yes, getting rides is limited to 3 people, when one is available. I am however trying to buy as Vtail suggested. There are 2 Sienna vans comparable in price. The nicer van has been fully detailed and is beautiful. I am waiting to hear back from them as I offered $1,000.00 less than their asking price, taxes included. I can transfer my tags from Ol' Silver.

The dealer accepted my offer but not the tax. I am fine with this as it still is less expensive than the other van. 20,000 less miles on the OD and overall condition of the van is better. Smile

140,000 miles on a Toyota, that's just getting broken in! Big Grin

You can easily get another 100,000 out of that.

Good choice.

Well, the young fella is driving down to pick me up. Looks like I will be gettin the Sienna today. It only has 121,000 on its OD. Nice looking van too. Can someone post a picture or two for me ? The van is at Midwest Auto Connection. Its Toyota Sienna, 2011, silver and 121,000 miles. I'd like the Members here to see it. Thank you. Midwest is in Fairfield, Ohio.

It looks like the ceiling lights are reflecting off the windshield.

So will this thing have a name like the SigForum Truckster? Cool

You guys are funny as hell... Big Grin. I am back at the dealer as the front wheel bearings are bad. Sounds like a truck and my ears are ringing from the noise.

Here's hoping the dealer makes it right for you!

With a car like that, you could deliver Amazon packages or drive Uber for extra cash.
