- Know When to Say Yes.
- Time to Talk Trade-In.
Can you haggle used car price at dealerships?
Deciding not to negotiate doesn’t just mean showing up with a blank check. A number of used car dealerships, like Carmax, offer no-haggle pricing that’s fair. Buy a used car from a dealer like that and you may not get as low of a price as you would have otherwise. But, it will save you some stress.
Can you negotiate a no haggle price?
Even if you intend to negotiate the price, you can use no-haggle outlets just as you do comparative price quotes. If you know that a dealership is willing to sell a vehicle at a set price, then you know that no matter which dealership you talk with, you don’t need to pay more than that price.
