Default Car dealerships in North/Central New Jersey

I'm looking at new and/or pre-owned vehicles (Hyundai/Nissan/Toyota/Mazda) and I was wondering if anyone can recommend dealerships in North and Central Jersey that sell these models where you had a good experience and felt you got a good price.

Several years back, a friend was shopping for a Nissan or a Toyota.
After visiting the Sansone multi-line dealership in Woodbridge and having an incredibly bad experience there, he went to Lynnes Nissan in Bloomfield.

The difference between these two places was like night and day.
In addition to Lynnes having far better prices than Sansone, he also felt that the salespeople at Lynnes were much more ethical in nature than those at Sansone.

^ I've had the opposite experiences with those very same dealers. I got two great deals from Sansone Nissan, and my buddy got screwed over by Bloomfields Lynne's.

I didn't have a good expeirence with Lynnes Nissan. Bottom line is all dealers are trying to make the most profit on a sale. With that in mind educate yourself, use the many online resources to fill your brain with knowledge. If you are getting the car your want at a fair price then it really dosen't matter what dealer you pick it up from.

I've had nothing but good things to say about Lynnes Nissan West in Stanhope. I've leased 2 cars from them, and will lease a third car within the next year. If you get your car serviced from them, you will get free tires for the life of your car.

Education is your only edge in obtaining a fair deal. Dealers pray for an uneducated consumer to wander into their lot.

if you're looking at new, i'd start there. ping dealers and tell them what you want to pay for the car (don't pay more than invoice). then, from there, maybe you can see what used cars they have on their lot? i prefer private party sales for used cars.

Bought a Juke from Lynnes. They were friendly, nice, professional, courteous, and smooth. They also tried to take me for every dime I owned including grossly undervaluing my trade until I walked, and magically got double the offer the next day in a phone call.

All car dealers are hustlers without exception. And they will take advantage of you in a thousand ways if you do not learn their business better than they know it themselves.

Before I buy a car, I do at least 10 hours of hard research and know every incentive the dealership is getting, the holdback, the true invoice, and what others have paid for the car I want in the recent past. It's a battle of wits that I actually have learned to enjoy. But unless you have a Type A personality and are up for some good old fashioned confrontation, you are getting raked over some very courteous coals...

a great tool in this battle of wits is internet forums. specifically, if you know what car you want, most brands have "enthusiasts" forums where people discuss what they paid, where they bought it, etc. often, those forums will have guys (managers, salespeople, techs) from dealerships around the country who can give you some information that is useful.

when i bought my acura tsx in 2005, i got it for under invoice, even though the 2006 was in high demand, because of the information i got on that website. it was a lot of work on my part though, and some frustration. but as you said...you have to enjoy this type of thing for it to be worth it. otherwise, pay the extra $500-$1,000 (or much more if you get raked ver the coals) and spend less time on it. lol
