Default I found a Honda I love at a local Honda Dealership, but it is way overpriced for a used

car, how do I bargain!? I found an 01 used 2 door accord Coupe with 128,000 miles on it, but the dealership is asking 8,000 for it and it is valued at more like 6,700, How do i talk them down and get the car that I love!!!!!, Thanks for the help!!!!!

Depending on condition and equipment, $8k for this car is a little high, but not by much. 128,000 miles is nothing for a nine year old Accord. If it's been maintained horribly, it's reached only about half its useful life. If it's been properly maintained, it'll still outlast just about any other brand new car on the road. They have a LOT more that $1300 to play with in the price of this car, so stick to your guns.

ADDED: Thanks to SoCal for confirming for us what everyone in the car business already knows; that the most dishonest person at a car dealership is usually the buyer.

Please ignore such ridiculous statements. Shoot straight with your salesperson and, chances are, he'll shoot straight with you. And keep in mind that he's selling a Honda. He doesn't need your business that badly.

Tell them your interested in the car but don't act too eager for it, and let them know that you did find other cars you like for a bit cheaper at other places (even if you have to lie about this part) and that you'd be more than willing to buy from those other places if you can't reach an agreement on the Accord. If you can get them to offer a lower price before you go into the office to sit down with them that's good. Also if you wanted, once your in the office start doing the paperwork then act like your having second thoughts about the "high" price and see if you can get them to drop it more. It'd be really irritating to a salesman for someone to start backing down right at the paperwork.

Just gotta remember they're salesman and WANT you to buy the car even if they have to lower the price. And in this economy they could use the sales.
