On yesterdays post, Goldilocks and the 27 Cars... I told you we drove in the Hyundai lot and out popped a sweet young salesman
Let me have your keys and the sales manager will look at your car then we can give you the price...it's not the price of the car, it's the OUT THE DOOR price we want... (we heard this at several places)
NOTE: our Dog Jake is home in his crate and has been for 3 hours. Bob is having a fit, face is starting to get red, he wants to go home.
Sweet guy notices the steam coming out of Hubby's ears, and the rocking in his chair... and says here is the price of the Kia, we will give you 2,000 for your Vue, and the cost IS.... I say I told you what I would pay OUT THE DOOR, Cash...
He goes to the sales manager comes back and says sign here, we can do that. this will take about 45 minutes. Bob stands up and says we have to go.
Sweet guy says...Sign this and go home and come back at 2. I will have the papers ready for you to sign,LIE #2 take about half hour LIE #3. I ask if Bob has to come back. No, you can do it by yourself...LIE #4
2 PM I walk in and he says have a seat, be just a few minutes, you have to see the finance manager.. ONE HOUR LATER I am seated in front of the manager and his computer. I hand him the check and he says OH, you filled it out already. (remember this)
Where is your husband? If you want his name on the title he has to be here...I say Bruce said he did not...
He says, that's OK we will just put it in your name only and in a month you can go to the DMV and have his name added... I say that will not happen, he argues. I say Just let me sign the papers, I will get him to sign them, because I left the title to the Vue home...
ONE HOUR LATER...25 signatures on umpteen papers..that he had to type into a computer (remember it was to be done and ready to sign)
HE says.... one more thing and we are done... this is the warranty, the car comes with 90 days as is... WHAT? I say... Bruce said it had the rest of 100,000 mile warranty..
He says.. it is ONLY 1800 for 3 years bumper to bumper... I am standing by now, mad as a wet hen... he says well you can get a year for 1200.00.
I say I am NOT paying one more penny than what is written on the check. He says will you pay 400 for a year? well how about 200 for a year...
I stand, hold out my hand and say
"Give me the check and my keys and I am going home to sleep on this. I have to think about if I want to buy it as is or not at all...
An amazing thing happened... he goes out and comes back and says the Manager will reduce the price of the car to cover one year of warranty, and your out the door price remains the same... DONE!
Sweet Guy lied: about the price out the door, about the warranty, about the come back alone, about the 45 minutes. I got there at 2 and drove the Kia in the garage at 4:45.
BUTT he was SWEET
