Amex has (or at least used to) a new car model/dealer locator service that it claims can get you a lower price. If you use that, you probably would be able to charge more of the purchase to your card. However, I think the ideal scenario is to go in with your checkbook, no trade, no need of financing and just try to beat them down as much as you can in an all-cash deal; that is, if getting the best price is your primary goal.
American Express: Blue Cash Preferred (groceries, 6%; gas, department store, 3%); Gold Delta SkyMiles (Delta Air Lines, 2 miles/dollar, free checked bag).
US Bank: Cash+ (utilities, phone, internet, restaurant, 5%; drugstores, 2%).
FIA Card Services: Fidelity Amex (everything, 2%); Fidelity Visa (everything, 1.5%).
Chase: Freedom (rotating, 5%); Amazon (Amazon.com, 3%); PriorityClub (IHG hotels, 5 points/dollar); Sapphire (not in use).
*All cards are registered with PriorityClub IDine program for 8 points/dollar at participating restaurants.
