I had the most disappointing visit to Crown Nissan in Greenville, SC. I made an appt. last week to have a test-drive this morning, 12/3/2018, at 930am in a 2016 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab, Arctic Blue, listed online for $21,883. All research online shows this price is high by approx. $1135. Upon arrival I was informed all salesmen were in a meeting. I did not get a test drive until around 1030am. Why make an appt.?
Naturally, upon return we discussed numbers. I initially made a cash offer of $1-,--- out-the-door. This number was rejected, as I anticipated, & the counter-offer was approx. $21,225. I then offered $1-,--- otd. Salesman Lakita was great through this process. At this time, Sales Manager Michael C. came out. There was no further negotiating & he would not even listen to my points. I was allowed to walk out with cash money in my pocket without a second thought. I guess the days of "What will it take for me to put you in a car today?" are no more & cash money is no longer good enough for you.
I was also interested in a new 2018 Frontier, same features, listed for approx. $25,000 & I tried to use this in my negotiation.
There is no way that a now 3 year old truck occupying your lot space & accruing daily fees with 37,000 miles is only $3,000 less than a new truck with less than 10 miles, both being on your lot. I also understand that dealerships make money through financing; however, upon talking with other people in the business, they could not understand how I was allowed to leave with my money & those numbers listed above just don't add up.
Finally, in my brief conversation with Michael C. he compared your lot with CarMax & stated that they "are killing us selling cars at higher prices than our ours." Maybe I should just take my money there, instead.
Thank you Lakota for making my purchase a pleasant one. You were so helpful and knowledgeable and went over everything about the car. I will pass this along to others.
