General tips for negotiating a good deal on a used car include knowing the car's value, always being prepared to leave without a deal and beginning with a low offer that you can then raise. Websites such as Edmunds.com provide an estimated car value based on the model, features and condition. Base your offers on this value.

If the salesman knows you love a specific car, it weakens your position during negotiations. On the other hand, he may not be as willing to negotiate if you don't appear to be serious about buying the car. Explain at the beginning that you may buy a car that day if an acceptable deal can be reached. If you can't reach an acceptable price, remember there are many cars for sale and leave.

Your initial offer should be lower than the car's value and the amount you are willing to pay. From there, you can raise it in small amounts.
