How much can I get this car down to?

Okay, I recently posted about two identical 2SS Camaros at a dealer. One's a 2012 the other a 2013 with a 2.5k difference between the two in price. The links to them are here and here. I went to look at both cars in person and did a bit of negotiating on the 2012. They say they won't go below 35 on it. While this was going on my father decided to do a search for Camaros and found another identical model in Pennsylvania. This one is a 2013 for 35k. So what should my next move be on the local 2012 model? My dad says make an offer for 30k and work up from there. Any advice?

Check NADA and KBB. Make note of the private seller price and the retail price. You should be able to meet somewhere in the middle. Maybe lower, it all depends on what they paid for the car and how badly they need to sell it.

It makes no sense to me to pay 35K for a 2012 when you can get a 2013 for the same price... even if you have to travel across the state line to save a few bucks.
I would contine to search until you find a price you are happy with. What one dealership wont do, another one will.

Good luck!

I completely agree. So when this dealer gives me a follow up call I'm going to tell him that I can get a '13 for the same price. I then want to make another last ditch offer on the '12. So the question is, what is a reasonable price for a 2012 2SS/RS with a sunroof and hurst shifter?

Maybe i am missing something, if your willing to pay 35 for a 12 and get a 13 for the same price (or close to it).. how is the 12 costing the same? have you used the kbb tool yet? there is no way i would pay the same for both. 12 doenst have mylink. granted i like the sun roof and more of a discount on the 12... a difference of 2473.

i think it falls to the sun roof option. and any changes from the 12 to 13. (my local dealer has a 12 and they are about 2-3 k less then a 13. still not enough for me to bite. that and someone actaully put the front plate on..

good luck hope to hear what you decided!!

They came down a whole $400 on the 12?

I would get the 13 and have them put the rims on from the 12.

What I'm saying is that I am NOT willing to pay 35 for a 2012. So I want to know what's a reasonable offer for that car. I haven't had a chance to use KBB yet because I'm on my phone and I don't have wifi since I'm spending Christmas with the family right now. I'll check it out when I get back to my hotel.

Basically. They weren't arrogant about it though, so I'm still willing to deal with them. It's their only 2012 2SS on the lot, so they probably want to get rid of it.

Yeah my dad suggested to go in and offer 30k for it. I figure I'll give it a shot and see what I get.

get the '13 but buy it soon... not a lot of Camaros will be sold in MD or PA in January.

This next week, is one of the best weeks to buy a car... not very many car buyers during Xmas week.

Whatever you pay on a new one, it would have to be damn close to invoice or even under.

That car (C9199458) was PDI 4/29/12 so it's been sitting there for 8 months. I'm sure you can them for 35k... Wait it out amd go back on 12/31/12... You'll get it for 35k then. Lol

I probably wasn't clear, it stickers for 35k and I'm trying to get it for under 35k. And if it's been sitting there for that long I'm sure I can get it for much lower. Thanks a lot!

I would say the 2013 if you could get that for $35k that would not be a bad deal. The 2012 are basically close out models this time of the year when 2013 models are out. The 2012 could possibly be had for about $34k. Start low but starting at $30k they will not take you seriously. Start at around $32k or $33k if they say they can't do it tell them to meet you in the middle at $34k if they say no tell them you are looking a 2013 from another dealer and if they can't do $34k tell then you are leaving. If you are worried about having warranty work being done any dealer can do the work whether you buy from them or not. You just don't get the walk in service like you would if were to buy from them.
