Yeah I had a quick chat with my dealer and they're of the "it's a free market" mentality. So they said they can't commit to pricing other than to remind me the Silverado and Sierra reservation says final pricing is set by the dealer.At LJ? Do you have that in writing? They dodged the question when I asked after placing my reservation in January.
Solution is dead simple. Bye Felicia.Yeah I had a quick chat with my dealer and they're of the "it's a free market" mentality. So they said they can't commit to pricing other than to remind me the Silverado and Sierra reservation says final pricing is set by the dealer.
So if we're in a recession, they're going to price lower than MSRP... and if we're still banging away with massive inflation they're definitely adding ADM hah.
You know what I hate about dealers who use this "free market" mentality... is then if you go to the dealership during a recession and play absolute hard-ball to get a good deal they think you're being an a-hole customer. Like they can't have it both ways... slapping massive ADM saying it's their right. Or up-sizing people into cars that max out their DTI (causing lots of defaults/repos and ruined credit). Then these same dealers complain customers suck when the customers haggle too hard.
I agree. Folks that pay ADM are the enablers for greedy dealers.Solution is dead simple. Bye Felicia.
For my Lighting reservation, I hit three different dealerships in different towns before I got a guarantee of MSRP. It was harder for the Silverado, I found a dealership two cities away. With my Denali EV reservation my local Cadillac GMC dealer guaranteed MSRP right off the bat. I know them, have purchased Cadillacs from them before, so this was not a surprise.
You, the customer are in control; if you wish to use that power. Find a dealer that will sell for MSRP, and reward them with your business. Rip-off dealers can only survive if people are ignorant and buy from them anyway.
Lol you'll like this article.I agree. Folks that pay ADM are the enablers for greedy dealers.
This. Times eleventybillion!It shouldn't be a double standard, the same folks that slap ADM shouldn't feel so bad when a customer flips the script and first degree price discriminates back lol.
