From my privacy, I am substituting $X for the real advertised price.
Avoid them if you can! If you must buy, make sure you don’t fall for their sales tactics and end up paying more than you should.
Summary of my dealing with them …
- Vehicle’s advertised price was $X. 2016 Jeep Wrangler Sahara Unlimited.
- Salesman offered me $2,000 additional rebate even before I saw the car … making me emotionally attached to it.
- When I did the paper work, they charged $699 in admin fees, $1795 in freight, $18 for tire levy and $649 in PDI. According to OMVIC (please, please, please check this out) , all of these should have been included in the advertised price.
- This resulted in me paying $1,161 on top of the advertised price. That is, they didn’t actually give me a $2,000 discount but cheated me to sell the car at $1,161 more than the advertised price.
- They were willing to give me a $500 “goodwill” rebate. I declined so that I can reserve the right to blog about their wrongdoing.
- My mistakes:
- Got so emotionally overwhelmed with “Jeep buying” that I didn’t question the high dealer admin fees
- Didn’t save a screenshot/print-out of the advertisement. At first their general sales manager claimed he could not find the deal price (can you actually believe that?) and then magically came up with $X + $2,000 as the advertised price.
Here is his annoying response after he figured out that I don’t have a screenshot or a print-out of the advertisement…
“The price on October 1st according to our records was $X + $2,000 and not $X as you suddenly claim (without any evidence to back it up) and therefore there is no wrongdoing on our part.”
In response to this I wrote …
