Tried to buy a truck on Monday Nov 5 afternoon. Picked one out, talked through the numbers.
The Used car sales manager is the one I talked with, not the New. I wonder why? Here’s what I believe.
The truck I had picked out was the only one I saw without the factory sticker in the window. I asked 2 different people to see it multiple times and was told varying stories as to its status. The only thing ever produced was a printout on 0plain paper.
I understand it’s a Federal law that the Ronroney sticker can only be removed by the buyer.
Here’s the kicker, as an option in trying to get to a lower sales $, BT (used car sales manager - I wonder why? No ronroney sticker!) sheepishly informed me the vehicle had a scratch in the parking lot when it was being pulled out by a salesman (but it had since been repaired). He wouldn’t tell me where or the type repair done.
This should have been revealed at the onset of the sales process. Had I agreed to a higher price early on, they would have never told me. Why? Because it was a card they were holding out during the negotiation process and played it when they wanted to.
He suggested I throw a low ball # ($33k) for the truck as a result. I told him that was shady and how disappointed I was that this was just now coming up. His quick defense was that it’s just where we were in the process. Disagree. I stuck with my original # (37500) and was informed they couldn’t budge.
So I walked and did not purchase a “new” truck that had already been in their shop for repair - undisclosed until they thought it was appropriate.
Beware of a 2018 blue Silverado 1500 Z71 at this dealer.
Finally, the “joking and smoking” that went on in the glass office while I was patiently waiting for BT “to review with his boss” is insulting and disrespectful.
Thanks for coffee guys!
