Hi UpNComing quick question, I have a financing offer from my CU...I received a great price quote for a new camry apprx $25k with TTL included. I havent told the dealer that but if when its time to talk about the financing, I tell them I want to use my own financing, could they possibly renig and increase the price? He keeps stating that this price is $250 below "true cost" but I am unsure what this really means. Could you explain. FYI All other quotes I have received are approx 1500 more expensive then this car but you know how they say they will beat any price blah blah blah. Thank you
MsTucker09 have you gotten the quote in writing? If not get the email address of person that gave you the quote and send an email asking if the quote includes destination and handling. Ask for a detailed quote that shows an out the door price. What you're looking for is the hidden gotcha. Remember, if something sounds too good to be true, it usually is. Once you have the quote in hand the dealer will be hard pressed to move the price on you.
ththanks upncoming, that is the out the door price, and that price includes everything and this corrospondence was thru email and I have the copy of the email......do you think that he wouldnt want to honor that price if I dont use their financing? when I go, I could print out the email as proof to show to them and another dealer (if they dont want to honor their own price).
