We stopped by after work to look at the 2016 camry deals that we found online. We were greeted and assisted by Sales Associate, Logan, who was great to work with. Finally, we narrowed down what model we were interested in PURCHASING. We accompanied Logan inside to meet Lance, the sales manager, also a nice guy. Both Logan and Lance were aware of our only financing preference was to purchase, I even mentioned my complete disinterest in leasing a vehicle. The 2016 Camry deals online were all gone. Interesting... maybe there was a delay in their website, or as I now know, they typically will only have 1 car available for the online deals, then when you get there "we just sold them all"..
For whatever reason we test drove a new one, discussed it, and decided to leave. Sounds fine, right. Yea until this point, decent! As we are walking to our car, Logan comes after us, stating "they want to know if you have any interest in a 2016 Avalon for $18,000". Ok what's the catch... "nothing, they want to sell the remaining 16's and business has been slow so they want to make a deal. Ok great, we walk the lot, find the car, test drive it, go back inside to discuss the financing.... this is the unbelievable part... The closer, TK, comes over, and the nightmare begins... He says "do you know there are 4 ways to purchase a vehicle. But there is a catch. Cash, finance it- only if you qualify which a lot of people don't, lease, or lease to purchase". Blah, blah, blah. The long and short- the dangling carrot really was to lease the car. He got into a back and forth with my husband about leasing, trying to convince us that instead of the almost $40K sticker price for this vehicle it really was only $15K for the lease at which point we had the option to purchase and pay the remaining balance. I still to this day don't know where the $18K offer was. The whole time during this conversation Logan is sitting across from me with his head down. I ask "TK" where is the $18K purchase price he offered and brought us in for. His response, well how can I sell you a $40K car for that price? There is no way... I get up to leave as that isn't what they represented to us. Clearly no interest in continuing. Logan walks us out apologizing several times that he had no clue that is what TK was doing. Stated how embarrassed he was about this whole thing. Thankfully all we lost was an hour and a half of our time and saw right through his scam. I find it very odd that he isn't listed on their website anywhere... why, what are they trying to hide??
Buyer beware-TK is a complete snake in the grass.
I wouldn't let my worst enemy buy anything from them.
