I had a bait-and-switch experience here. The car saw in the ad on the company's website and all the third-party sites was published at one rate. We negotiated as if that car existed and drove almost four hours to the lot. That car had been sold two weeks prior and we were only notified a few minutes prior to arrival. Once arriving, we were told that car was sold, but they had similar models, which we found on the Carfax had all been purchased at the same time, same mileage, and probably the same price. However, we were told those would be $3,000 more than the advertised price we saw. We were also offered a version with more miles and frame damage, for yet still a higher price than publicly advertised for the car we came for.
I gave the lot the benefit of the doubt and spoke to the manager to ask if they would honor the price. The still have this advertised price listed four weeks later and their website and multiple third-party websites. I am also receiving "price-cut" notifications from them. In addition, if you submit a price quote, it still says this unit is in and you get an email back that says it is available.
Please do your research and get a contract on the price and VIN number before you arrive. This was a complete waste of our time and we were lied to several times.
