      Will a Dealer (VW specifically) really give you a discount if you bought 2 cars at the same time?

      I have been to a few who said they would, but I never actually went through the process.
      However, my lease will be up this summer and it is getting harder to avoid needing 2 cars.

      You aren't getting a deal on 2 cars. When you buy fleet level cars and dozens you might-might get a break.

      No matter what they say, you are quite likely better off doing two separate deals. There's less skin in the game and more negotiating power.

      The only way I see this working is if you had some huge expense or sales tax credit you could slide into 2 cars somehow and not lose it, assuming you are in the handful of states that do such things.

      VW dealer here. Yes I will go a little deeper for a multiple car deal.

      However, the customer will never know nor will they believe you.

      My wife and I bought two VW's at the same time from the same dealer. I think we got a great deal but no idea if it was better than if we had each bought them separately. We also bought at the end of the month for whatever that is worth.

      My in-laws just went to Toyota to buy two new vehicles, the new Rav4 and a new Tacoma. The dealer didn't seem to care given how lackluster the "deals" were.

      They still bought the Tacoma (it's my FIL's 3rd) but ended up replacing their off-lease Tiguan with a new one. But still, I had to get them hooked up with my guy up here. Their dealer in NC was offering them crappy deals too. So maybe it's just a NC thing?

      Depends on the individual dealer, some will some won't. It doesn't hurt to ask, but not a big deal if they don't.

      For best odds of success, my recommendation is to make it clear up front what you want and that it's a package deal--2 sales today or 0 sales. If you're willing to buy just one of the two from them it's no longer really a package.

      Also might help if a.) its the end of the month and they need to hit a quota and/or b.) at least one of the 2 cars has been sitting or will be hard to move (past model year/strange options/etc.)

      Either way it won't be a huge difference.

      2 or nothing is the same as falling in love with a specific car, The dealer then has the upper hand. At every turn you have more on the table to loose than the dealer. with 2 cars, there's twice as much, more variables, more gotchas, more more more.

      in every way the deal is better to do one after another. You can play the price game, the financing game. take the dealer financing, pay it off immediately and repeat for the second and it will still not cost you any more credit checks within 30 days. The dealer will think they are getting the bonus or whatever and you can take the incentive money and refinance or pay it off immediately.

      Agree with gosht03.

      It all depends on the individual dealer and can't predict whether they will provide or not.

      Varies from the individual leader and he may or may not provide a discount.
