I hope the local Chevrolet dealerships are not like that.
I was actually going to mention something like this myself, but wasn't sure if it really fits since it's a Ford dealership.
I was out with a female friend the other day looking for a used truck for her. While at the dealership walking around with the dealer that came out to pester us, I commented that I myself was waiting for the Camaro. (He didn't really say much about it other than I heard something about $60,000 and I had to correct him that it should be in line with the Mustang's pricing.)
Anyway, he mentioned they had just sold a GT500 for $15,000 OVER MSRP.
I chuckled and told him I'd NEVER pay over MSRP for a vehicle. His response, of course, was that I will for that Camaro. I just told him I'd wait a while before getting one, because I refuse to pay over msrp. Conversation ended there pretty much. At least regarding the Camaro it did.
So don't use Lilliston Ford in Vineland, NJ if you don't want a markup on anything.
