I don't hate haggling. People should haggle for everything. Hell, I ask for a manager and haggle at walmite. I love it .. they squirm. But I do most of the 'shopping' online. Find what I want, track it down. Even phone the dealership and light the fires. Then I arrive. Then the fun begins. Dealer prep ... delivery ... tire inflation charge ... that's all dealer fluff that the factory doesn't get a cut from. And they hate to deal on that. They'll say they can't. I don't care where they take it off ... but all those numbers are their profit and it's your job as a car buyer to leave them as little as you can.

 

People that don't haggle are why the US is choosing between the two worst candidates since 1776. No balls.

Couldn't buy a car online. Even though I do almost all my shopping there.

I prefer in person.  I work in retail and enjoy hagglers.  NO is such an easy word to say.

The only car I would consider buying online is a project car since I am not looking for the perfect car. Rather I am looking for the proper starting point. Otherwise it  is in person and haggle away.

Ok, true confession here... I bought my '68 GTO, Black Betty, online, sight unseen other than pictures. I will not do that again. It was as advertised, but there were a few little things that, were I there in person, I would have noticed and would have pointed out to the seller to fix or come down a few bucks on price.
