Do any of you have any car dealership stories, good or bad?

I'll start:

Yesterday, my husband and I went to a Ford dealership that we've bought cars/trucks from before. We saw a beautiful 2013 Grand Cheerokie 4x4 and we fell in love. They were asking $45,400.00 for it so I told the salesman that the MSRP is only $39,000.00 because the 2014 were already out. His reply was, "make me an offer", so I said, "$35,000.00 cash, right now. Well, of course he said, "I have to talk to my boss". When he came back, he said, "no". I gave him my business card and told him to call me tomorrow (which was today) if they changed their mind. This morning, I get a call from them saying they'll give it to me for $38,000.000, and I said, "I gave you my offer, don't call me again unless you can take it". Two hours later, he called back and said, "ok". Oh well, so I go down there (now husband is out golfing) tell him I want it in black to match my motorhome and he says, "no problem". We get into the credit dept. and I see it says $38,000.00 to be financed. WTF, does this guy not want to make a deal or commission? I finally told them (after haggling for 1/2 hour) where to shove it. Told them after 7 vehicles (and the one I'm driving) that I will NEVER do business with them again.

An hour later, I went to the Jeep Dealership and got a great deal on a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4X4 with all the bells and whistles for only $38,000.00 cash out the door. Of course, anyone that know me also knows that I drove over to the Ford dealership to show them my great deal!

Oh yeah, and it's black. Husband won't be happy but oh well, he should have been there!

You hang in there girl.
They thought they had a 'woman shopper', but you showed them.(LMAO)
'i' was a dealer and the stories 'i' could tell would curl your toes.
Glad you shared that with us.
Let the "WORLD" know "The buyer is always right".

Wouldn't it be easier if you asked how can you tell when a car salesmen is telling the truth?

Reminds me of the time I went to the auto shop for an oil change and they told me they could replace one of my headlights. They told me ONE light cost $50.00. I only bought 3 headlights for the car in the past. At different places too. I only spent per light about $25.00! Explain that!

Then they tried to justify it with well you bought the last one at Walmart.....that's why! I said NO I also bought one at O'Rileys and at Auto Zone.$ 25.00 all three times give or take a dollar or two.

I heard of marking up the price but come on people! I might act delirious at times but I'm not stupid!

=*= All businesses tend to take advantage of women-
because they can.
Don't be gullible to their 'extras'- tell'm to kiss ass!
Get your oil changed @ the prescribed price and leave.
NO fluid, wipers, brakes, or any other thing.//
Tell'm you got a guy!
+= And he might come and see'm!-- that'al shout'm up!
