- Premium Package
- Cold Weather Package
- Technology Package
- Adaptive Drive
- Space Saver Tire

I am having very little luck with getting the price below $55k - seems high to me, curious to see what others are able to get...

You REALLY need to be thinking in terms of "original cost" for each and every car...not "used car asking prices".

For every car you see, calculate the original invoice, tehn take off the ECO credit and add 500. This is the cost basis for the car when new.

Compare that number to the asking. Take off between 50 cents and 1.00 per mile.

THAT should be the target purchase price.


Keep it as simple as possible...but no simpler.
