steemin Posted March 12, 2011 Report Share Posted March 12, 2011 Made an appointment with the GM of a nearby dealership (just across the state line) to go look at a new 2011 SVTPP with Elec. pkg. Drove 2 hours to see the car today. Inspected the car. Then they drove it out of the showroom for me to take it for a test drive. Car is awesome. Loved it!!! Sat down to negotiate the price. Handed him a Cashiers check for the amount I was willing to pay "Out the door". I was very clear that this amount included sales tax,doc fees etc etc..all expenses. Sales person took the offer to the GM and he came back with a counter.. It was slightly more than I wanted to pay but I decided what the hell I love the car... They take the car to the shop to detail it,remove the window sticke etc. I sit down with the finance person, she pulls all the manuals out of plastic,hands me the extra key and we start signing all the paperwork. After I had signed about 12 documents she puts the purchase order in front of me and it is approx $700 more than our agreed upon price! I told her we have a problem.. She called the manager over and he said that "sales people are not the numbers guys and that they miscalculated the sales tax". I told him that I was crystal clear as to my out of state sales tax rate. I even had it in writing on a cheat sheet that I showed the salesman .Not to mention the fact that they were over more than the alleged additional sales tax amount. They were also over by the amount of doc fees and title fees. I shared with him that I was not going to pay the extra $700. I went on to say that I was going to walk if they did not honor the agreed upon price.. The GM said that is the best he can do. He can't lose money on this car. I very politely thanked him for his time,shook his hand and walked out the door.. I am still in shock. In all my years of buying cars/boats etc... never have I had this happen. At this point in time I am not going to disclose the dealers name as I am hopeful that they will come to their senses and call me to honor the deal.. The search continues:( Scott Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
