Does a dealer have to show you invoice price?
There are generally two prices you’ll encounter for each vehicle, the MSRP (Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price) and the Invoice Price – which is what the dealer pays the manufacturer for the vehicle.
But to do this properly, you need to see a copy of each dealer’s official vehicle invoice.
How do I find the invoice price of a new car?
Simply enter details such as the make, model and year, and cost and pricing information will be displayed. You will see the MSRP (the manufacturer’s suggested retail price) and the car invoice price. Knowing the car invoice price can give you ammunition to help lower the final price you pay for a vehicle.
Can a dealer sell below invoice?
Although it’s possible for a dealer to sell a car below invoice, it’s unlikely. If you’re buying a car from a dealer, you’ll probably pay over the invoice price, as a dealer tries to sell under invoice only as a matter of last resort, such as at the end of a model year or if a brand-new model is only a few weeks away.
Is invoice price the same as MSRP?
The invoice price is what the dealer pays for the car from the manufacturer, the price you pay is called the retail price. Meanwhile, the price on the window sticker is the manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP), or what the manufacturer hopes the car will sell for.
