Selling over MSRP

I do not know why dealers are trying to sell over MSRP since this is a full pruduction car. We have two in my area one is asking $5000.00 over I was just wondering if dealers in other parts of the country are also doing this. I am in the business and this greed has always astounded me.

It astounds me as well. The first dealer we tried to order from would not give us the GM supplier discount on the vert. We had just purchased a $38,000 Silverado from them 2 weeks earlier and when we mentioned that they told us that is why we are giving you MSRP otherwise it would be $2000 over. We told him cancel the order and found another dealer that gave us what we wanted. We should take delivery sometime this week.

I do not understand it. I work at a unnamed dealership but I bought my wife one at GMS and the first three we had go out where GMS and supplier. These are not rare cars be fair to people.

I got my unit at MSRP. Go to AutoNation.com, enter your zip, and get quotes. You should receive emails from several dealers (don't leave your real phone number). Write back and say "I will only pay MSRP." I am sure one of the dealers will accept this offer.

If none do, enter another zipcode for the next major city near you. Keep working until you catch a keeper.

The internet puts you in the driver's seat and levels the playing field.

Best,

Ambient in Arizona

Those dealers selling these over MSRP should be boycotted. Buy your car at another dealer and go car shopping in their lot! Love the looks on their faces!

They ask for more than MSRP because some people will pay it, of course not me, but someone will. They just need a few suckers, and then they can sell them gap insurance...

Bottom line is this. Don't ever buy form that dealer and tell everyone you know to do the same. I have been loyal to my local dealer for about 20 years and purchased or leased or recommended many sales in good times and bad for them. They wouldn't dear to rip me off now! Waiting for mine to arrive any day now from this dealer.
