There are times, as noted above, when you can get a new one for the same, or even better, price as a used one. 3. Dealer sales men/women are trained to lie, and they are only hired if they can convincingly do so.
How do I know this? I worked at a Kawi, Zuki dealer in high school. Probably why I only buy Hondas.

Also, like the old saying; You Get what you pay for.
If it is cheap it is for a reason.
I got mine for FREE so that means it is in cherry condition right? LOL!

I agree, I searched for months for my brand new Yamaha waverunner, drove 12 hours run trip, best price I could find, and got one heck of a deal on the price and package :-).[/QUOTE]
IMO, one of the key pieces here is "patience" and when coupled with "cash" in hand can result in some great deals.[/QUOTE]
Patience is also helpful when buying vehicles also. Took me 1.5 months to get the price right on a new truck but I got them down 12k off of sticker out the door price.
Foresight is like hindsight without any future. Haha

A little about "dealing". To me, the art of the deal isn't about being the world class debater or being cagey or having poker face or the heart of crook. Getting a deal is about patience and a little about awareness.
There are times when the dealer (any dealer) feels inclined to move inventory. In cars and trucks this always happens in late December. They need space and don't need to pay floor plan interest on last years models. There are other calendar times too.
When a dealer is ready to move inventory you can get a deal better than anything you could ever negotiate and to get that deal you just have to show up and have the means to pay. These times are irregular but it is worth it to have a nickels worth of patience.
