Thank you for your responses. What you both are saying makes sense. For me, I guess it's less about the money than it is about the attitude of my dealer. They advertise that the car is certified and advertise a price. I saw the car's price listed on a different website for $300 less and then they try to get me to pay $800 for the certification. So the way I see it, they are trying to get me to pay $1,100 more than the asking price.
Also, I would understand their policy, "The price is the price" if the miles were the miles. But that price was when the car had 3,000 less miles. Regardless, the car is a good deal. Otherwise, I would have already walked away. I got the dealer to agree that I should not have to pay for the Honda certification since it does not say that anywhere in their advertising. Now, I want them to drop the price of the car $600 for the miles, plus the $300 difference in price between the 2 websites, so $900 total. I think this is reasonable.
This is my first time buying a used car. I have leased my previous 3 cars, but I have never had an experience where I felt the car dealer was unwilling to work with me on the price. Like I said, it's not so much about the money. I just am not even sure I want to give this dealer my business after all this. What is your opinion?
