My Review Of Mossy Toyota Scion:
My husband and I emailed the dealership asking about the currently advertised special with the 2010 Prius. We explained we had a leased 2008 Camry that we got from them. The lease was up on the Camry in 6 months. They seemed to have treated us right, though they did “inform” us that the last dealer had ripped us off….not sure I believe that, but that seems to be their underhanded way. It’s like going to a new hairdresser that trashes your old hairdresser…you have the business, don’t be an ass.
Dealers seem to have misunderstood the objective, despite our communication otherwise. I’ll premise this with the fact that every Toyota dealer in town had advertised a level 2 Prius at $249 per month, no down, no first payment and 24 months of service at no charge. So we went back to Mossy Toyota, We emailed our situation and bottom line days before. We prequalified online with flying colors. We spoke to the salesperson several times (John, who was very nice, but clearly not listening to what we wanted). Our objective was clear. We arrived at the dealership, they took another hour to again prequalify us. We drove the Prius. After 90 minutes they offered us a completely lame deal, claiming we owed too many payments on the Camry (lease was up in 2/11). We countered and ultimately walked after the “bad cop” came over to let us know we “beat up” our salesperson and that they simply could not do the deal. He did offer us a deal close to what we wanted, but let us know Toyota (not his dealership) would come after us for anything they felt was wrong with the Camry after the fact. Seriously? You had the facts days ago….do the deal, don’t do it. Don’t waste my time.
These people wasted our time and were ultimately rude in the process. I would have been fine if we walked in and they said, sorry we can't do the deal. Bob Baker Toyota took the Camry back, paid the last 6 payments (actually Toyota does that as part of the deal so you are also liars at Mossy), $600 down, no first payment, no Toyota coming after us after the fact, brand new Prius, 2 years service, detailed and a lower payment than we thought was possible. Mossy, you wasted our time and tried to rip us off. I tell everyone how bad you treated us.
