Question Buying advice in Seattle area

Hi, new member here, looking to purchase a new 2012 Focus Titanium in the near future and am soliciting advice on any tips for getting the best deal in the Seattle area such as choosing a broker, dealership, online buying service, whether the Costco program is worth it, etc. Haven't purchased a new car in over 10 years so am not up on the latest methods of getting a good deal.

I would like to use the current 60 months 0% financing offer, trade in my current 96 Honda Accord and still get a good price. I am not military or student so don't qualify for those discounts.

Any advice greatly appreciated.

Paul

Since your looking for a new year then take your time when shopping around. Try and get them to compete for your purchase

Yea. Walk out if u aren't getting money off the sticker price. My mazda 3 was advertised for 15,900 and we walked in saying 13000 flat with tax n licence. They didn't budge, we left went out for lunch they called back 2 hrs later we settled on the deal and I ut 3 grand down. So don't be in a rush and remember theirs a lot of those cars out there. All the dealer wants is ur comission. You are the paycheck for them. Trust me they'll bend
