exactly, just the way they are doing now. no it isn't invoice it is msrp and is actually 2nd dealer to tell me that.Rollin Thunder said:are you sure that isnt invoice, that seems way to high, but gm cant do anything about it, it is the dealers battle, not theirs, what i think is that gm has had many winners just the dealers always wreck it for them.
MsS42...You need to start broadening your search into other states. I think your best bet would be to look in the midwest...specifically Detroit. I know you are on the west coast, but you should easily be able to buy an Enclave for $500 above invoice. You would need them to ship it...so you would want to research the cost of shipping a car.MsS42 said:received another quote for 1500. over msrp.... hno:
I agree with this comment as well. They have power to charge what they want...just as you have the power to laugh in their face and walk away. Market conditions are different for every city. I ended up ordering my Acadia from Toledo, OH...2 1/2 hours away from me (which is Jeep and Ford country). I sent an email to the GMC dealership telling them specifically what I wanted to order and they came back asking $600 BELOW invoice...and they will ship it to my house. The best I could get from my local dealerships in Dayton/Cincinnati were $1500 ABOVE the deal I got in Toledo.MRBUICK said:This is the USA, welcome to democracy and free enterprise and capitalism. They are entitled to make a profit (even if it is excessive) and you are entitled to walk away and say NO.
This MSRP or above is nothing new, the Japanese have done it for years when they have a hot vehicle. Ford dealers tried it in 2005 with the new Mustang convertible (MSRP +$8000 at one dealer. it was red) and I walked away.
Would you rather live in Russia? ???
EDIT: I am NOT a dealer and have NO connection to the automotive industry.
fenwah,fenwah said:Design...what priority was your ordered Enclave when the order first went in...and what is the priority now? The GMC dealership where I purchased mine put it at a priority 7...from what I have read priority 8 is the lowest priority on the chart. My salesman indicated it would take about 8 weeks or so to deliver. I'm in no hurry to get it...so it's not a big deal...just curious to see what they changed the priority to and did they say it would be delayed even longer because of that.
coop and mrbuick,coop said:Not that I am on dealers' side, but I agree with MrBuick about price gouging. The Buick dealers are probably getting a once in a life time deal to make money, so they are going to do that. But that doesn't mean I will pay what they are asking. If you remember I had such a hard time finding the right deal.
If you can wait, order one at your terms. You can work with any dealer in the U.S but take the delivery from the local dealer, as one suggested to me some time ago.
