Can I get a lower price if I finance through a dealer?

I was looking at financing a car, and the price has consistently dropped. I was wondering if I could get them to go even lower if I finance with them. Is this a possibility?

“If you decide to finance with the dealer, they may be willing to work with you a bit on the price. But before you sign anything, check for hidden fees or prepayment penalties.
As you would with car insurance, shop around at other places for car loan rates as well.
By shopping around with other lenders, you may be able to negotiate the rate with your dealership, as well as possibly get more money knocked off the price of the vehicle.
Don’t forget that when you buy a new vehicle, you will need proper coverage. If you haven’t already found insurance, use the free Jerry app to help you find the best deal. Jerry compares rates from the top 50 companies in under a minute, delivering the best deals to your phone.”
