I got my best deal after walking out of two dealerships, and BOTH called back... and I wound up pitting them against each other until I got a price so low, I couldn't believe it. It was under my target price.
The car we want is a VW CC. After reading this post I did more reasearch and found the Volvo s40 to be better priced and better warrentied. I am going to test drive it before we go back to the VW for the CC and push for the S40. The Volvo has been in my family in the past.... the "Boxy" Volvo, broncosteve will remember it more than I will, but the safty of the volvo can not be matched...
