DDT Posted March 25, 2008 Report Share Posted March 25, 2008 OK, since we totally HIGHJACKED the 09 GT500 order guide topick and there are people here wanting to read about Dealer Experiences "Good or Bad", maybe post them here? "BECAUSE IT WAS REQUESTED" Here is test drive #3 without obtaining a reasonable sales price. This was the Dealer that claimed "THE NEW GT500 IS ONLY ONE YEAR PRODUCTION 07 AND THEIR DONE". In Feb. 07 I was contacted by Kathy from Sunset Ford in Westminister. She advised me the exact GT500 I am looking for (fully loaded red coupe white stripes) just offloaded from the car carrier with only 4 miles on the odometer. She said hurry and get down here as there is a guy from Chicago landing at LAX with a 12 noon appt. to purchase the car. (ANOTHER BS SALES TACTIC). I asked her if they could keep it out of the show room so I can test drive it and she said yes "thats why I am calling you". I was excited but tied up at work and since I knew the Chicago Spill was BS, I was in no hurry. I finally got their just before 2pm and of course the "Chicago Guy" did not materialize. The first salesman I met said "Ya most customers are LIERS" when asked about the 12 noon appt. Anyway I have all the respect for Kathy as she is a sweet gal but just caught up in this "ADM" thing like a "PAWN IN AN EVIL GAME"?????? She showed me the car on the parking lot already cleaned and NO ADM STICKER. It was perfect, just what I wanted with only 4 miles on the odometer. Asked her where is the keys and she handed them to me and said lets go your driving. First time I got to drive one directly off the lot. Did not get crazy with this test drive drive but still proud to break it in and see the boost come alive. Only drove surface streets and back to the dealer with 11 miles on the odometer. I actually was getting excited thinking I could keep them from posting the "ADM" and purchase this one for sticker????? After all it was the only price on the car and that is what I told Kathy that I see no other price. She said OK let me talk to the Manager.......... Next thing I see about 5 minutes later is 3 guys emerging from the show room like KEYSTONE COPS one holding an "ADM" and I stood between them and my car and said "IF YOU THINK YOUR GOING TO POST THAT ON THIS CAR I WILL SLAP THE SNOT OUT OF YOU". Should have seen their jaws drop, "PRICELESS". After a few minutes of verbal sparing I realized the lost cause and let the crooks put the "FORTYFIVETHOUSANDDOLLAR" ADM on the window. That my friends is a "100%MARKUP"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DING DING DING Could not stop laughing at them but had enough respect to thank Kathy for treating me so good. And my Friends, the search continued................ Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
