Working to swap our older soul for a hybrid. I haven't been to the dealer other than to test-drive, but have spent A LOT of time already online trying to figure out a reasonable price. I'm not looking to make a killing, but don't want to leave money on the table unnecessarily. That being said, I would not turn down or even haggle an offer of half-price for a new vehicle.

Strict dealership time to handle paperwork: about 2 hours. Spent about a day with the wife test driving different crossover type vehicles before settling on the Soul, which was what she had wanted originally. After that, quite a bit of time spent negotiating between 3 dealers trying to get competing offers before finally settling on one. Didn't have anything worthwhile to trade in, so I listed my wife's car for sale and sold it for my bottom dollar price within a few days. Dropped her car off to the new owner then went straight to the dealer and was on our way home with the Soul in just a couple of hours.
