went to the dealership. Jewel test drove a 2017 traverse. She liked the car, but the salesman was way too pushy. We walked away. I think we want the 2018 anyway.

Yeahhhhh the 2017 model is like 10 years old at this point, despite the MCE, it shows. They'd have to pay me to take one over a 2018.

PWA - V

Someone tell me how this makes sense.....

Asking 36K, $4k off...

$2000 down for 60 months at $681 a month.

They finally came down to $2k down at $495 a month, but not sure how many months that was.

Assholes I don't want to know what my monthly payment is I want to know how much the car cost, but they wouldn't tell me so I mentally gave them the middle finger and left. Doing the math over and over again and it doesn't make sense.

Ohhh and they only wanted to write off my loan for my Sonic which only has 3.9k on it. My car is a piece of shit but it's worth more than 3.9k

Well, 60 x $681 = $40,860

Divide that by 495 and you get 82 months. So odds are it was an 84 month term.
84 months x $495 = $41,580

Common dealer trick to make the car look cheaper, while actually costing you more.

Ohhh yeah you didn't factor in the 2k down payment either. They lost a sale. If they would have gave me the car for 32k they would have made a sale. Also I wanted to know the final price so I could get a loan through my credit union, but they wouldn't give me that price. Ohh well there are other dealerships in town.
