    Should have asked about the GM discount you can buy the car below dealer invoice.

    In the 70's I bought a car from a GM friend at the Schenectady Chevy dealership. Got a good deal and learned that there are a number of different invoice prices.

    I go to a high volume dealership, we bought one car the week after 9/11/01 they had seen the big slow down that became the 9/11 recesion, but were still selling about 10 cars a day. Normally they sell 30 +. When it gets near the end of the month Ford calls them to see how many cars they can take. Ford pays the transport fees, and gives the dealership extra incentives. The best part for me is that there is no haggling, the sticker price is shown on the window, the transport fees are subtracted, any rebates and incentives are listed, then the final price on the car. My Ranger was stickered at 14,000, I paid 9,500. My wife's focus was stickered at 14,500, we paid 9,500.
    this dealer also has a used car center, I bought a '06 grand caravan used in '06 for 16,000, with 15,000 miles on it, everywhere else I was looking at closer to $20K.
    We just bought a '12 Focus last year for 15K it was a 1 year lease return with 12,000 miles

    No only one Invoice price but what the consumer can purchase for is a little different
