That last sentence in that post I quoted you on there's no OTD price lol..Yes i did lol? That one dealer quoted me $10,319 OTD. Too high. Dealer in NC has offered me $9634 OTD
exactly!!!!dealerships of cars/bikes/boats provide the most infuriating buying experience of any product on the face of the earth. I love kicking tires and snooping around lots, but as soon as i see these guys on the ambush walk i instantly am filled with rage. I've just tired of their nonsense. When i say "let's have a chat about pricing" and they say "what's your trade-in and what payment are you looking for", i am filled with a desire to cave their face in. Much like your experience, when i ask you for the dollar amount i need to fork over to drive away i expect that number. All your extra fees, warranties, etc can be snugly inserted up your ass. I just need the number.
Long ago i began taking great pains to be a dick the first time a sales rep starts the racket. Don't know your product or come at me like i need my hand held? Adios, or better yet i'll just come back later and purposely seek out someone else. You can watch them take your sale.
Thats what I've been doing.You might try pitting dealers against each other and see what happens.
If the dealer says there are no scratches have him/ her make you a walk around video with smartphone. Ensure he shows the VIN.@swmotundra doesn't it just piss you off. I know exactly what your talking about. I love that you purposely waste there time. That would be something I would totally do lol
Thats what I've been doing.
MSRP on this bike is $10,990. Most dealer delivery, assembly, doc fee, bla bla bla is about $800-$1000, then $300 state tax. So the high end I've had dealers quote me $11,900 out the door. FOR A NEW 2014. LOL. its a year old!
I've talked to TWELVE different dealers. Best price that has the color I want has me at $8849 + all bullshit fee's and taxs I'm at $9634 OTD. I found one dealer that beat them with the color i want but they are 10 hours away, not 2.
SO I'm waiting to hear back from the dealer in NC to confirm that this bike doesn't have one single fûcking scratch on it and has 0 miles or no more then a couple.
If it all checks out, I'll be putting a deposit on it today and buying it next week or so when I get back in country again.
I am picking it up. Had them confirm it has ZERO miles. never been ran at all. I feel good about it. its a 3 hour drive from my house, I'm going to rent a truck ($60 bucks) and haul ass up there early in the AM and be back by early afternoon that day. I'll re-confirm VERY sternly that this bike will be flawless or I will loose my shit. I feel I'm in the good right now though.If the dealer says there are no scratches have him/ her make you a walk around video with smartphone. Ensure he shows the VIN.
Hopefully you plan on picking it up in person and not using a shipping company.
wow. SMFH.I tried to make a deal on a motorcycle when I was 22. I was ready to pay cash for last year's model in stock. Started negotiating with the salesman and the OWNER comes over. He tells me to come back with my dad if I want to buy a motorcycle. I told him to go F**K himself and said I will take my cash to another dealer. Went down the road and paid cash for a newer model at a lower price.
Let me know when you want to ride, this is my 08.
