There is nothing wrong with asking for a thousand dollar discount but with taxes in you are asking for a 2K discount, a little heavy on a 7K asking price,,,, let's leave the taxes out of the deal along with administration fees the dealer will most likely also want included unless you buy from private seller where there are no adm fees.
This being your first experience I will go the extra mile and guide you step by step, under Navigation click on #4 " test drive " that will be your first step,,, if vehicle fits your budget and lifestyle say thank you, will sleep on it and walk away, don't let emotions or sales pitch take over WALK AWAY post or e-mail me the details and we will go to step 2. Don't start sending several choices, drive as many as you want, but keep it down to one or two choices,,, your very first big test will be,,, can you walk away ???
I assume you are located in Ontario with 13% taxes (thnx a lot canada),,, you want cheese with that whine ?,,, where do you think a portion of your free medicare comes from ?
