I bought my car through Carmax, and it was literally like buying a TV.
"ok this one costs this much and it has this in it"
"cool, here is the money"
"here is your car"
I was at 3 dealerships before and they all made me feel like shit.
Carmax only sells used cars right?
I guess I am just used to the haggling concept. I would almost feel like I did not get the best (in my eyes) deal if I did not get to haggle.
I see ur point, but my blood boils when they trick you into thinking they are 'giving you a deal' and you end up playing the game for 4 hours until you get a point where you wear them down enough to give you a reasonable price.
I agree. I love to haggle the price part, especially since I have family in the business and know EVERY trick when it comes to the $. Also on the first note, buying a car $1K off MSRP is overpaying. Unless it's a brand new model, and a hot car they can't keep on the lot, you want to pay as close to invoice as possible.
yeah I called BS on that and spent the next 4 hours widdling it down and at the end of the day, I got $4,300 off. Significant amount, but I wanted to reach over and grab 'em by the throat towards the end.
I told them up front if they treated me nice, my parents were going to get an FJ Cruiser the same week and you'd be getting two sales.
They were ash-hats about it so my parents ended up buying somewhere else.
When I came back to finalize the papers, we all rode back in the FJ cruiser and let them know they lost a sale because they were being d-bags. The expression on their faces were PRICELESS!
F U Lisle Toyota!
