What exterior color did you get which went so well with the Alpine interior?
Well yesterday i did go into the dealer and they only had one used "09" and said the 2010's would be in next month but would be identical.
It had 1800 miles on it and said it was traded in after only a month because the guy switched jobs and he could not afford the $1200 a month payment so they helpped him and sold him an IS-250.
They said it had been there for three weeks and one guy offered $51,000 and they told him to walk.
The sales guy said at this time they would "most likely" take $52,000(he suggested that amt.) and since it was Fathers day and just before closing he suggested coming back Mon.
I called him in the AM to remind him about our "deal" and to "make sure we could still do it" which he stated "oh yea we proly can but just come in and we will do it".
I showed up,test drove the car,corrected him on several things about the car and headed into the office to make 'this' deal.
After taking my info,no employment,debt ratio or FICA scores as i said i would paying cash(or check that is)he goes off to do the "dirty deed".
He comes back to show/tell me they have $56,750.00 into this car and would need that for it.
So he also joked the day before about how the unlucky chump who traded in the car (and BTW paid for another within a month)had paid "full price" for it.
So they made a fine profit on the 1st and the 2nd i am sure then tell me $52,000 and come back to tell me they actually paid $56,750.00 on a trade in>
Starting to know why i hate and never did trust car salespeople,just must have forgot that's all.
After a few comments about "is there anything we can do" we walked out and i just told him if he would have not told me something he was not so sure about(his deception about this was no mistake) i have come back to get the 2010 next month but now that cannot happen.
While we filled out the paperwork he talked about how the sales guys are really more for the buyers not the dealership cause if he don't sell he don't make his commission,what a bull line.
They must know some are juts stupid and the rest they can just make up for by purely using deception cause lets face it,most are in there to buy the car and haggling is a part of it.
Was a sad day for sales people in that i now have a the same old found disrespect for them today which i found many years ago.
The drive was great,wish i would have pushed it more now though,i think he only shit his pants one time.
No miles,a 2010,color i want inside and out and the options with better rates on financing,hell they may even have some incentives for 2010 but i wont hold my breath.
Think he will call me back?
