Armed with price quotes and financing information, you're ready to head back to the dealer to start the negotiating. But if you'd rather finish up the purchase through the Internet, many dealers will give you a free quote online or consider an offer. In the case of a used car, limit the search to your local area so you can see and test-drive the vehicle before making the purchase.
And if you want to forgo all haggling, websites such as From Car to Finish offer a shopping service that will take care of the negotiating for you. It will contact at least four dealers in your area to get quotes on cars and give you a report outlining the offers.
