#705 of 756 new vehicle dealer trade non-disclosure is it a scam?
Mar 27, 2011 (12:58 am)
I bought a brand new Chevy. The vehicle cost 44,000 dollars. After a break in the auto body company discovered the vehicle had been in two accidents and repainted on both sides of vehicle. The auto body company had to remove the previous work because it was done so poorly the paint was failing and in some areas they painted over dirt. Dealership denied any repair work and even looked at me like I was trying to pull a fast one. I called GM and they had information of repair to the brand new vehicle. I told dealership one and they then told me (OK) it has been involved in two accidents one month apart from each other that involved body and repaint to each side of vehicle. This vehicle was a dealer trade and dealership one claims they did not know it was damaged when they sold it they claim dealership two did not disclose this information to them. The vehicle was in the shop for 33 days while the dealerships worked on who was going to pay the extra to remove the poor very poor work that was done so my body guy could finish his work. The vehicle is still not fixed on the other side of the vehicle. The dealership who sold me the vehicle sold his franchise and left me holding the bag. I went to dealership two who shipped this vehicle across state line without disclosing these issues and ask for all repair work form or information they had on this vehicle. They gave me two work orders that confirm the repair work but they claim the customer was dealership one when dealership one did not receive ownership until two months after the repairs were done. Why have they changed names on work order documents and continue to hide this issue of disclosure. I have the documents now in hand that claim the selling dealership was the customer during repairs when in fact they did not even have position of the vehicle during the time of repairs and by the way this dealership is no longer in business but the dealership who has changed documents and was the owner of the vehicle when repaired with faulty work and sent it across state lines with out disclosure? GM and the AG from two states are working this and I have a question before I sue. The dealership wants to make it right now and I am not sure what would be right for their intentional scam to rip me off. What would be fair to settle out of court? Will they make an offer or just a low ball car detail and repaint the vehicle again thing. I will not take a low ball offer. I was scammed and tired of being treated like an idiot who thought he was buying a brand new vehicle and was duped.

#707 of 756 Silverado Extended Cab 2011 Texas Edition
May 21, 2011 (7:16 pm)
Spent some time talking to a few dealers around town. Was offered $8500 off the MSRP for Texas Edition. $6500 is the published rebate from GM for Texas Editions. It seems the dealer is offering $2k on top of it. The sticker price for the 4x2 Extended cab TX Edition is $34,090. Wondering if anyone in TX & on this forum has been offered better price this month for the above trim/spec?
#708 of 756 Expecting good deals on left over models?
Aug 30, 2011 (8:35 am)
I have seen some articles saying that Chevrolet has a "too large" inventory of Silverados on hand (110 day supply, versus the prefered 75 day supply). This would seem to indicate that there should be some hefty incentives on leftover 2011 models in a short while, like maybe October. I am interested in a Texas Edition crew cab myself. Anyone have any thoughts/predictions?

I just got a quote yesterday on a new 2011 1500 LS Crew cab 4x4 in the Boston area for $28,800. Have you seen anything better out there?

Nine months later- I can assume you bought at those prices?
Dealer wants 21k for a V6 crank window 1500 series 2wd Ex cab W/T Silverado ..or for that matter a GMC in the same trim.
This is with EVA- 5005.00 rebates, a 1000.00 private offer, and its a 2011 leftover- needless to say- I'm not impressed.
#712 of 756 Questions about incentive on captive financing
Sep 13, 2011 (9:08 am)
Does anyone know what the limitations are on the financing incentive? I believe there is a $1k incentive on the captive financing, but what is the minimum amount that you have to finance, and how long do you have to wait before refinancing?
The last time I was faced with this, it was through Ford, and the minimum amount to be financed was $7.5k, and you had to make 3 payments before you could refinance.
And approximately how bad are you getting scr**ed on the interest rate? My credit union is offering 2.49% for 60 months.
#713 of 756 Negotiating - 2010 1500 LT Z71
Sep 23, 2011 (9:30 pm)
I am currently looking to purchase a 2010 or 2011 Silverado 1500 LT. I came across one with the following options.
2010 5.3L Taupe/Gray Metallic 2WD
Package add-ons - 1. Interior Plus 2. Power Plus 3. Exterior Plus 4. Z71 Appearance
It has around 18,000 miles on it.
Dealer is asking $25,500. Edmund's is showing around 22,279 for trade in value. And I assume no dealer is actually giving a customer that much for a trade in. Does anyone know the avg percentage below trade in value that most dealers buy vehicles for? My question is where to start the negotiations. What is too low? I do not have a trade in, will be paying with a check, no financing from the dealer.
