Back on the subject when I bought my 01 SSEi loaded minus heated seats, it was advertised at 21,999 this was 5 months ago. Wasn't paying that, I like the car buying game, my father and I are ruthless!

My 96 Aurora had 97K and bluebooked for $2000 paid 13,300 three years earlier and had 49K. Man did that depreciate fast, now guys like Jim get a great car at steal!!! Orignal window on mine was 39K.

When I traded it in it was backfiring out the intake manifod ocasionaly and ses light and traction off light too

To make a long story short after 6 hours at the dealer playing the "game" got 3700 for trade in and the SSEi down to 18900. Well worth the time spent haggling to save a couple grand. I have a friend who sells Toyota'* and he said that most cars are marked up 12-16% so that'* how far they COULD go down, I work off those numbers. So I paid 18,900 say and now blue book is 21,400. Whoo hoo.

I can't believe some people actually buy the car on their first offer, you ALLWAYS counter offer, multiple times too. What'* the worest, they say no? You show them some cash and say you could of had a deal buddy, and they'll make you a better offer. Just my personal experiences.

I have a simple credo: Don't drive something you can't afford to buy outright. I don't expect anyone to agree with me, but that credo is serving me well so far.

89 Bonneville SE
96 Aurora...next up???

00+ SSEi (cash baby)



However I do understand unique situations and to pony up $30 000 for a new car is not easy, as long as the ends justify the means, then its all good.

Happy driving everyone
