Visited the dealer at Labor Day weekend and took test ride on 2012 TDI, sales associate Brad was truly helpful and eager to help. The advertised at $18.192 took test ride, running ok, following day contacted directly with sales manager Jerry for the sale and explain him that , price is slightly higher than my target and due to fact the car was not fully serviced or certified yet and still has previous owners dirty and body damage on it,
I offered $1000 less than asking price which is perfectly fit based on KBB sale prices . Instead manager replied Quote and quote;
“We leverage bank incentives to improve our retail pricing. If you choose to pay cash the price increases by $1,000, making the purchase price of this vehicle $19,192” ... so basically if you pay cash you get penalties and he jacked up original price by $1000 . Are we in high school .!!!! I leave it up to you, if it doesn’t tell you the manager’s arragent attitude and lack of handling the potential sale , what does ..?
More over, steering and rushing the costumer , make it look like it is “hard to find car” is poor treatment from dealer side, especially when it comes from their manager. I would except more professional approach. Good luck to them with their tackle , and steering sale tactics.. Be aware
