Gaspassing Posted February 7, 2013 Report Share Posted February 7, 2013 I Just pulled the trigger on a new 2013 GT500. Dealers here in AZ weren't interested in letting me purchase for MSRP. I drove to Phoenix to test drive cars, and tried out the ZL1 and a bunch of other performance cars for sale. The dealer Peoria Ford in NW Phoenix wouldn't let me drive the Shelby. Needless to say I was pretty shocked. I mean I can walk into the Ferrari dealer and get a drive, but they wouldn't let me test the mustang. Anyway, I chanced into a car at a Carmax in Gilbert AZ and those crazy buggers shipped the GT500 to my local Carmax to drive. Well, after the "extended test drive" I was smitten. I put in a purchase order only to run the VIN that night and find out that they were 100 under MSRP for a used GT500 (800 miles). Luckily for me I found an out if state dealer willing to sell a GT500 under MSRP. Paperwork is done, and I am just waiting for conformation and delivery. Now comes the hard part...waiting for the car. This dealer gives me hope that this silly crap about ADV or market adjustment will be short lived. The gouging can only hurt in the long run both in total volume of sales and dealer goodwill. No way I EVER pay market value for a depreciating asset. That's just me, and I was willing to buy something else if necessary. I will post dealer details and Pics when all is done. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
