Tell me what you think of this and what you would do in my position.
This morning I did a search for 2012 ISF's and found one at the Chicago Lexus dealer listed for $50,000. I emailed a message - "Why is this car so cheap" and received an email stating they had to clear the 2012 models to make room for the new ones, and that the price was correct and there was nothing wrong with the car.
I called the person who emailed me and they again stressed the car was priced to sell quickly, there was nothing wrong with it, it had 1,400 miles on it and was driven by the agency owner.
I said I would buy the car, gave all my information (no money) and they began the paperwork.
Then at the end of the day I got a call from the same salesperson telling me the price was a mistake, but they would gladly sell me the car at their price, $63,000.
I told the salesperson this seemed to be a textbook case of bait and switch and, mistake or no, they should sell me the car at the original price quoted.
I'm not sure how such a mistake in pricing survived through an 8 hour workday, with people (not just me) asking if it was correct. But I do know the law, and in Illinois it is a crime to switch prices after someone has agreed to a sale. Your thoughts?
