Nope! The worst they could do is reject your offer or counter offer! Good luck!

Is it a dealer or private seller? If its a dealer, see what incentives you qualify for (military, college grad, etc), sometimes those can add up easily. The worst that can happen is that they counter! If it's a private seller, they may be a little insulted, but I always say, there's no harm in asking! It's always better to negotiate than pay full price!

Once a car is driven off the lot the worth of the car drops dramatically, everyone knows this...well most, LOL. With the fact that it is a year old...depending on the mileage that was put on it..etc, etc...11,000 is a good offer. The worst they can say is no...lol

Unless its a place like carmax or a pay by the week place, it can never hurt!

Well there are so many other factors.

What is the make and model?  Even though it is last yrs model , does it have any miles on it? Are they selling selling it as a Demo  as Brand new or Used ? 

Dh has been selling cars for 20+ yrs ...ask away. He can answer your questions .
