I recommend checking out www.carbuyingtips.com. Click on how to buy a new car and read thru the 7 chapters located at the bottom. More insight and good tips in one spot than I have ever seen. Everything from factory holdback, rebates, extended warranties, how to negotiate, you name it. The buyers offer spreadsheet in chapter 4 is an excellent tool to determine what you should normally pay for a vehicle. Use www.edmunds.com to find all the numbers to fill in the spreadsheet. Knowledge is power!
