My Review Of Camelback Toyota:
The experience was atrocious. We came to test-drive and maybe purchase a certified pre owned vehicle and the pressure to "sign and drive" was repulsive. How is a dealership going to try to sell us a vehicle for $32,000 and out the door $40,000? Hmmm, I know there are sales tax, license and doc fees but that shouldn't equate to $8,000 on the bottom line. I saw the document and they quoted us an average interest rate of 11%+. They alleged the interest rate to be "average". They never asked us about our credit rating. They said the interest rate may come down a bit but kept telling us an APR of 11% was average. Eventually I just stopped listening to them because they are full of it. 11%? Really? Fool someone else. I looked at my fiancé in disbelief. I straight up asked them without hesitation, "How much business do you lose when you show people an 11% rate?". They didn't respond. I questioned who would sit and work a deal? Not us! We realized quickly they didn't think we were knowledgeable about interest rates and financing. Shame on them. The very fact that they tried telling us we would finance a 2013 Toyota Highlander for $909/mo was outrageous. This is a Toyota Highlander folks, not a Mercedes. I'll pay that for a Mercedes. We had lunch plans on this particular day with my fiancé’s mother and told them we had to go. Instead they tried to convince us they had Schlotzskys Deli cater and that we should have lunch there and discuss the deal. I don't think so. We checked out the moment they tried to convince us an APR of 11% was normal. Yeah, ummm, okay. We were adamant that we were leaving despite their influences to keep us. We left and it wasn't until the next few days when they called us incessantly and claimed to tell us we could walk out the door with the vehicle for $33,000. Thanks Toyota, we were so repulsed by your antics we purchased a beautiful SUV elsewhere, a 2012 certified pre-owned with only 10,000 miles and guess what, we financed at 3.40%. Not too shabby of an interest rate on a used vehicle. I would say that we did a heck of a lot better than a 2013 Highlander with 16,000 miles financed at 11%. Good luck with that...
