I'm looking at buying a used car from dealership, 12' camry to be exact with 70k on mileage and it is a Toyota dealership.
I've limited knowledge on cars and never bought a used car from a dealer.
Anyway long story short, went to checked out the car which I'm interested in.
A fleet car from Health (not sure if it is a good or bad thing as the previous drivers probably take no good care of the car) though service history is up to date (half is done by the dealership which I doubt the actual validity of them).
Test drove it, seems to run smooth. Some paint issues on the front quarter panel (looks like dripping wax). Asked about previous accidents (dealer denied any acknowledgement of it, how surprising), promise will buff it out. A small dent on the rear door (looks like parking too close to other cars/car park accident, I'm not too fussed).
Asked about room to move on price, the dealer wouldn't budge, claiming it's the special price (I guess they figured out that I was interested and serious but was just not going to buy then and there).
I presume all dealers have their price and everything is negotiable but is the percentage of discount/negotiation similar to what I would expect from buying a new car? or some dealers will do fixed price on some of their used cars like some of the auction places?
Also, I'm not sure if the 'dripping wax' paint finish on the front quarter panel is a significant issue? Unless it's a written off or stolen, I won't be able to find out. The quarter panel and front bumper appear aligned though.
Thanks in advance.
