#2 in the oven asked: >My husband got a new job and starts next week. He just finished school and will drive an hour each way to work so we need to get a car. Can we buy possibly before he has job? I have a job but not great credit. It has been improving but this time last year score was around 625. Does financing come into play when you negotiate the deal, or is that an afterthought? Also, price new is $15,300 and they are offering cash back $750, we have a car to sell/trade probably $1250 sell or $800 trade.
How much can we expect them to take off sticker? What is needed to take to dealership to get credit? What are some good methods of negotiation? I have only negotiated used cars and I am sure there is a difference. Vehicle is a 2007 Toyota Corolla if that helps.
