Negotiation estimate when buying a car

Hello everyone,

My first post to this forum and I must say that it looks like it is going to be one of the most useful and helpful forums I have visited.

So, in short, I would like to buy a car and I live in Geneva. When I bought a car a few years before, I didn't know that I could negociate. But now that I can bargain, how much do you think the dealer would reduce the price?

I know this depends on the make of the car (Volkswagen, if it is essential), but just an estimate according to Swiss price levels.

Thanks in advance,

Gokce OZEL.

Re: Negotiation estimate when buying a car

They might reduce the price based on fleet discount and where you work.

On a brand-new car, 8-13% is not unusual (off the base price).

Go at the end of a month or at the end of a quarter - they might have quotas they're trying to fill

Thanks Lob Rockster, I appreciate the info. Do you think buying it at the end of the year will give a better price? Or do you think that the arrival of new models at the end of the year will limit my chances for a reduction?
