Most car dealers are insensitive assholes that give no shits about you and only care about how many zeroes are on on that check. However, there are occasionally people that can relate to you. I personally was able to finish bringing a car down $600 from $4,600 after telling an older gentleman how I'd been saving up for a year and would be spending every dime I had on that '98 Chevy Camaro. He finally agreed after repeatedly telling us that his bottom line was $4,300.
