Does anyone have any tips/suggestions about buying/haggling over email?
Should I make an offer in my first email?
I'm going to get financing set up with my credit union before I go. Would it be better to mention that I'm at least interested in financing with the dealership?
Any info would be appreciated.
I like to hold out until the last minute on anything. Keeping them in the dark as long as possible only gives you a better advantage. Don't even tell them about financing until you've settled on a final price.
Also, check out ford certified pre owned. I got my F150 that way, almost brand new, for cheaper than brand new, plus a better warranty. They extend the power train from 5y60k to 7y100k. Totally sold me.
