I concur this is exactly what we did and it worked for us!tcj said:Check out Carsdirect. The price you see there is basically the lowest the price is going to be - it's essentially dealer invoice and you get that price because Carsdirect functions like a fleet owner. You buy through the fleet manager, whose department is not made up of "salesmen" like you normally have to deal with at dealerships. You may also use Costco's auto-buying program or your local credit unions who may have a car-buying program. Regardless of which of these you choose, the price will be almost exactly the same. I've bought my last 4 cars this way and will never go back to dealing with salesman for anything other than test drives.
The typical disclaimer applies: I'm not employed by, affiliated with, nor paid by anyone. I'm just a very happy customer who wants to try and turn people onto these alternatives. You won't beat the deals they offer.
