As much as I hate writing bad reviews, I feel it necessary in this case in order to warn others of the ridiculousness of this dealership.
I ended up going to Peruzzi Nissan towards the end of the month of July 2014 as they had a 2014 Nissan Atima 3.5SL for sale at a great price. I came from South Jersey and it was about an hour ride each way. The salesman was well aware of this. I was wanting to get out of my lease and back to ownership. Unfortunately, at that time, there was not enough incentives and rebates to get to the numbers I was looking for. The salesman informed me that maybe August might have something better to offer. No problem on the first visit, we shook hands and he said he would give me a call when August rolled around.
Fast forward a couple days later to August 4th, the salesman called and said they could now achieve the deal I wanted. I clarified on the phone that this price was 100% out the door, no hidden fees or other charges popping up. He said he would verify everything and call me back. He did just that and said it was 100% good to go and even sent me a photo of the buyer's order with all the numbers in place and signed by the General Manager. Awesome, everything is set to go. I ended up calling my bank and getting the check overnighted (cost me extra) and setup the appointment to take delivery 2 days later. I also provided my credit card to hold the car so it would not be sold. Should have been straight forward with nothing more than paper to sign and cars to swap. Well, low and behold, after driving another hour and arriving at the dealership when I said I would, I am told that there was an issue and they didn't realize it was a transfer from New Jersey plates. Even though they were well aware that I was from New Jersey and it was going to cost $250 more dollars. And they would not be covering it.
This, in my opinion, is completely unethical and wrong. They told me in writing and over the phone what the price was going to be. They knew all the variables involved. Even if they didn't realize that I was from New Jersey as they claimed, then they would have charged my higher tax rate of 9% and not the 7% in New Jersey, so they would have more than enough to make the $250 difference they claim. I guess they also thought I would not walk about over that amount, but I did. I will never try to business here again. Pretty sure they know that, but hopefully I can help others avoid the same situation.
Even if you get it in writing, you may not get it at all.
