Nope! It's Red Ruffing. Not a good pic of him, which is why he looks like me.20Seven said:Dealers in the NE have a Dealer Conveyance Fee, to which I replied is a bunch of B.S. That you are charging me for paperwork? I crossed it out on my negotiating counter-offer (along with some installation charges for accessories).
The manager said he could take that money off the car but still had to add the conveyance fee ($279) because his boss demands it as required. I didn't care because they removed it from the price we had negotiated but I still think it's a BS fee.
As for the accessories. The saleswoman told me that the service dept is separate from the dealership (even though they are the same bldg) and that the dealer gets charged by them to install your accessories which is why they have to charge you as well. I said I never heard of the service dept being separate and called BS again. She stood firm, I stood firm... a Mexican Standoff. The manager came by and adjusted what I deemed as acceptable out of the price of the car into one total number. Therefore she was either telling the truth and he took more out of the car or I was right and he cut those down, I'll never know. Anyone care to comment on that?
I get it next week and am still nervous that they will try some last minute crap to try and cut into my trade-in or something. I don't care if they're not USED salesmen I still feel their sleaze.
I agree complete arbitrary number on the MSRP. Since TSX are selling so well I'm not sure I understand Acura's business sense in not raising it, who knows. But I did have to pay around it minus the money I got off accessories and conveyance fee just b/c manuals, w/navi, in a certain color you desire are hard to find, no joke I called around and my bank USAA has it's own negotiators who called me back to say they could find below MSRP for that vehicle... you pay if you are specific, but I like being particular
Oh yeah and Larchmont, Lou Gehrig right?
Hate to say it, but thats not my problem. When a sales guy or manager gives me that song and dance, I tell him the same thing. Then I tell him that the next guy that walks in here is going to pay msrp. You can make it up no problem with those people who dont research and dont haggle.Lycan said:Remember., everyone is trying to make for living back home. They all have kid and wife just like we do.
