i agree, it's just...uncomfortable to have to argue about such a huge purchase. it sickens me that dealerships slap on $500+ "dealer fees" on top of MSRP, then claim that the fee is non-negotiable. in most cases, a dealership will make money even if a car is sold at invoice price because they get discounts when ordering more than one car of a given model :roll: (plus they mark up accessories like crazy).BigLobedWelder said:Although I'm educated and not too bad at negotiating, I really hate doing it. I don't argue prices at walmart, I shouldn't have to at a new car dealership. I can see doing it for used cars, as you may see some damage or something, but there is no reason we shouldn't just get a fair price on the sticker, instead of an inflated price that we are supposed to talk down. Actually, we're supposed to work our way up from invoice. That's another story though.
I, too, paid sticker. I could have had anything but the Krom for invoice, but being the special one they couldn't, or wouldn't, work the deal. I did get an extra $500 for my trade for buying that model though, so in a way I got it for $500 under sticker.ChristineK said:I sadly paid the sticker, it was exactly MSPR and features were exactly as web and brochure listed. I drove 3 hours to get it so I was just happy to see it.
Too funny and good for you! :yes: Be cubeing soon?coolguy said:unlike me, do your homework BEFORE you buy the car, people! :roll:
sadly, it means restarting the waitin' clock for another 90 days, but i'm patient i still have a working car to putter around in until then! and it stinks you had to go through so much trouble to get the one you wanted...but at least you have it and didn't have to wait very long to get it!ChristineK said:Too funny and good for you! :yes: Be cubeing soon?
I did my homework and that did not pay off either as the studied car was fictional in my area. :-\
My dealer could not locate one, so I located and drove to get it.
In the end I was happy.
