Two nights ago, I went to Springfield Acura. I put down a deposit ($2,500) for a Royal Blue/Parchment TSX 5A with Navigation. Here is what was final:
TSX Retail: $30,760.00
Total Price of Vehicle:
Less Trade-in: $6,500.00
Anti-Theft Etching: $188.00
Total Taxable Amount:
State Sales Tax (7%): $1,566.81 <--- Gov. Corzine's Fault
NJ Tire Fee - $1.50 per New Tire: $7.50 <---Again, Gov. Fault
Registration / Title Fee: $279.50
Computer Time: $81
Delivery Service: $19
Due At Delivery:
Prior to signing, the salesman had said that they may have to do a "locate" for my car. Ok, I signed and the next day I got a call from him. He said that I have three options:
1) Select a car they have in inventory (that matches what I want) that a customer backed out of. That customer never purchased it (ie, name was never on the title) but the vehicle has over 100 mi on it. Dealer said that it has that because it was another located vehicle and was driven there with dealer personnel. He said he would initally take off $200 from the price of the vehicle.
2) I could continue with the dealer locate. The one they would get is 7 mi from my house at Bridgewater Acura. They would deliver it to Springfield putting on 25 miles and I would take delivery at that time.
3) I could order one from the factory. It would take 60 days and when I took delivery, they would re-evaluate the price of my trade-in since 60 days have passed and it is now of lesser value.
Mother Fuckers! AFTER I SIGN THE FUCKING PAPERS, THIS IS WHAT THEY FUCKING TELL ME!?!!?!?!?
Ok, I know that it's a mere 100 mi on the one they have in stock, but it's 100 mi on a car that's brand new. Where the fuck did they get it from, NY?
I called the dealer back last night, spoke with the manager. I told him I want my refundable deposit back since he couldn't get me what I wanted. He scuffed at me saying sarcastically, "Your REFUNDABLE? deposit..." The dealer 7 mi from my house said that they were willing to do beat any price that this dealer gave me. Unfortunately, not that my dealer told me this, but on the copy I have, it states that THIS ORDER NOT SUBJECT TO CANCELLATION - DEPOSIT NON-REFUNDABLE
WTF? I didn't even get an order, there is no fucking car!
HOLY SHIT, I must have the worst luck with this shit.
EDIT: I forgot to add that what got me really pissed off initially was the sales manager calling me "UNPROFESSIONAL" because of my reactions to this. Mofo.
