    Hi Saul,
    I'm in the same boat, and live in Long Beach. I'm still selling my trade-in private party so that's holding me up from buying right now.
    But the best price I've found so far [without being sitting at the desk ready to buy] is $23,7 before TTL , and $26,7 OTD.
    Let me know how you do.
    Thanks,

    If you have Costco membership, take that route. You will get the best price (negotiated by Costco Auto), and dealers are not allowed to pressure you. Here is the link: https://www.costcoauto.com/

    Random question. If my dad has a Costco membership (and not myself), does that work for me to use it? Not saying I would but I did wonder about if they would allow family to use it.

    YMMV: The internet price (dealers sent me their offers) i paid for my 2018 SI was better than Costco price.

    Therein lies the rub.
    Is the Costco price better than you could negotiate yourself?
    And how would the dealer 'take it' if you came in with the agreed Costco price and than proceeded to negotiate a better price from there?
    Is Costco getting something from a completed sale at their negotiated price?
    Costco doesn't tell you their negotiated price until you go to the dealer, and talk to the Costco rep at the dealer.

    Yes, that should not be a problem. You would just need to have his Costco membership number

    I was able to negotiate a lower price than the Costco price. When I bought my 2018, the Costco negotiated price was $22,400. I offered a month later by email to the sales person $22K, I would buy right than and there, and they agreed. Of course it depends on the dealership

    Because Costco Auto required the dealer to share the invoice price, I knew how much "fat" I could cut and not make everyone uncomfortable. BTW, Costco Auto is actually not Costco, but a company contracted thru Costco, and they have to follow Costco customer service guidelines

    Nope. There is the "public" invoice the dealer shows you, and there is the actual invoice they don't show you. Consumer Reports will share the actual invoice price if you are a subscriber. How do I know this? I have a friend who is a sales manager at a dealership in SoCal
