Car Manufacturers A-K:

Acura: dealers stick pretty close to invoice; some are willing to go a few hundred under invoice to make a deal.

Chevrolet: dealers are starting to get more competitive with pricing, but still not as low as their Asian competitors.

Ford: dealers are unwilling to negotiate as much as some of their closest competitors; a few hundred under invoice is a reality for most Ford cars. Ford Credit, however, is very strong with competitive financing rates.

Toyota: dealers have started to get more aggressive with their pricing and incentives, and have overall good products (despite their recent quality woes).

Car Manufacturers L-V:

Lamborghini: dealers are going to charge you full sticker price. Can you blame them?

Nissan: dealers are quite willing to give their cars away, to the tune of thousands below invoice. Rich people can even haggle the GT-R down to invoice or less.

Toyota: dealers
