I tried to buy a vehicle today and they wanted $3K more than website sticker price. “You don’t qualify for the discounts that get you to that price.” We tried to talk them down $500 and they wouldn’t even take that. I think it took them by surprise when we got up and walked out, but they lost the sale.

This was in WI and they claim they can legally advertise falsely like that online (I don’t know it that’s true or a line). As soon as he started the “I need to go talk to my manager” I was done. Why do car dealers all have to be so damn shady?! We were completely prepared to offer them the website price. Their loss.

More of a pet peeve I guess. 😬

This is why I buy from CarTime. Their price is listed on the website. No haggling or negotiation. They are super easy to work with. When I got my new ride I told them I’d need X amount on my trade in to make it work. They gave me X amount on my trade in and I drove home in my new car.
