Theguy on Turin Road in Lee sells Subarus with over 100k so he don't give no warranty. And his prices are hi too
??????? I bought a Subaru from him and it has been a great car. He was hard to get a hold of and it took a while for him to get me the right car, but I'm very happy with the car. and the price was way better than some others. I would go back there and get another SUbaru.

Why does it matter how much money the dealer is making?, hell, I was a dealer in Rome for a number of years and it doesn't matter how much the car is whether its $500 or $10,000 nobody in Rome has any money and wants the dealer to hold the note bc they got no credit bc they live off from SSI or Welfare, good majority I noticed were waiting on " Settlements " bc there to stupid to make a honest living. And for your info, dealers have to make a good profit bc u lowlifes keep coming back for bs like tire pressure being to low or no washer fluid so we need to take time to hold your hand n explain to you basic maintenance which takes time and can essentially cost the dealer money bc we cant take calls or deal with other paying customers.

The carfax doesn't tell the whole story. Carfax doesn't know if the car is a good runner.

Hey..wait a second...oh, that's right, this IS a free country and capitalism is alive and well. Don't like the car dealer?? Don't buy your car there. In a free market society, they are allowed to sell their wares for as much profit they care to make. What they do with their profits? What do you care... Don't hate what you don't understand...or, move to a socialist or communist country and work in the collective...Cuba is only a 90 mile swim....stroke, stroke, stroke...but you might have trouble getting in with all the Cubans trying to get to America...

I worked for steet ponte ford lincoln in Yorkville, and nobody wanted to sell new cars , all the salesman wanted to sell used cars, and they were all marked up by at least 3,000 minimum! they paid the salesman crap and kept the rest for themselves the cheap bastards that they are! Of couse now that probably isnt true because the used car mgr Steve Cater is a moron and gives everything away, he hates to make money.

Economics class 101

Buy low - sell as high as the customers will pay.

If you charge too much, customers will go to other sellers.

If you don't charge enough - you will go broke.

Car dealers tend to buy and sell at about the same in any area. Based on "blue book" values - these values tend to screw the customer while providing a nice mark up for the dealer.

They sometimes get taken by buying or taking in trade a problem car - they also may sell a car that ends up being a problem for the buyer. Good dealers will try to fix the problem, bad dealers will come up with hundreds of ways to avoid fixing or reimbursing the customer.

Go to another dealer - simple as that.

If Starbucks charges too much for coffee, go to Dunkin. If your groceries are too much at Price Chopper - go to Aldi's. Tell your friends - tell your neighbors - tell anyone who will listen. Make a sign and picket in front of the "bad" dealers lot. Tell the Better Business Bureau - sooner or later the bad dealers will either change or go out of business because they can't sell cars.

But there are always new customers - As PT Barnum said, "there's a new sucker born every minute" or words to that effect.
