Not an Honest Dealership. Found a great price for a car listed on Cars.com. Talked on the phone and texted with both Kim and Donna. They helped clarify a few things for me. They told me I better hurry in, because a deal like this one wasn't going to last long - and in fact, someone was test-driving the car as we spoke (now I know this is a common car dealership lie). My wife and I canceled our Saturday plans, loaded our two small children into the car, and made the 50 minute trek to the dealership. Upon arrival, the car was presented to me. We talked about some of the features, and then started talking about price. That's when it became apparent that the $26,000 price listed online was not a sale price, but a price to lease the car. When I questioned why NO PLACE in the description on Cars.com was the simple 5-letter word "LEASE" mentioned, the salesman froze up and called in for help. What frustrates me even more is that when I first spoke with Donna and Kim, it should have been apparent from our conversations that I was interested in purchasing the car (aren't all cars listed on cars.com actually supposed to be for sale anyway?) In fact, when I asked if this car qualified for an energy efficient tax credit, I was told that it did. Shouldn't someone have clued me in to the fact that the price listed on the internet was not the price to purchase the car and saved me the headache and hassle?
I find these tactics incredibly dishonest, and borderline illegal. Thank you, Andy Mohr, for wasting my family's Saturday. I will be warning anyone to avoid your dealership at all costs, unless they want to work with a business that follows dishonest and sketchy practices.
