Question about buying a new car

Not that I’m going to, I’m perfectly happy with my Honda that’s as old as me. But for curiosities sake.

Lets say you go to a dealer to buy your brand new car. They have one in stock that has all the options you want, from the color to the snake oil rust proofing coat, they ask for MSRP.


How do you negotiate from there? It’s not like a used car you can point out thing that need to be repaired to lower the price.

Do you basically just go.

“I’ll offer you two grand less than that.”

Maybe that would work if it’s an oddball car somehow, but if it’s pretty normally optioned one and the dealer isn’t having a problem moving inventory. Where do you go from there?
