I have run across a car buying website called carwoo. I would like to start a new thread to ask people if they have used it and what their experiences have been. Thanks
#491 of 493 Quotes reasonableness for expat
Jul 25, 2013 (10:46 am)
Hi, everyone. I need a small assistance in car financing/leasing. I'm a citizen of Russia and move to US for to years for a work. I would like to buy a Volkswagen CC, namely this one: Car I want . I'm buying a car with a Company who deals with expats and who can provide a car financing or leasing without credit history. I received the quote from the Company today. Could you please assess it for reasonableness. Actually I have enough money to purchase it at full price, but I've got money on deposit in Russia with very good interest rates. So, if the quotes a reasonable, it is more profitable for me to use financing or leasing.
The quote is as follows:
$ 19,477.00 Capitalized Price of Vehicle1
$ 616.75 * Motor Vehicle Excise Tax 3.2500% State OK
$ 111.75 * Initial License Fee
$ 0.00 Registration Fee Order Information
$ 995.00 * Other: Application Processing Fee Driver Name
$ 4,869.25 * Capitalized Price Reduction
$ 0.00 * Tax on Capitalized Price Reduction
$ 0.00 Gain Applied From Prior Unit Lic. Plate Type Unknown
$ 0.00 * Security Deposit GVWR 0
$ 0.00 Extended Service Contract
$ 14,607.75 Total Capitalized Amount
$ 608.65 Depreciation Reserve 4.1666%
$ 77.78 Monthly Lease Charge (Based on Interest Rate - Subject to a Floor)
$ 686.43 Total Monthly R">ental Excluding Additional Services
$ 0.15 Reduced Book Value at 24 Months
$ 400.00 Service Charge Due at Lease Termination
Why the price on the website is lower than the one stated in the quote. The company said that the difference refers to documentary fees and administrative fees. Is it reasonable?
#492 of 493 What if the dealer is already offering TMV on a used car?

If the dealer price on a used car is already TMV, is it still possible that I can negotiate a lower price? I will be paying cash.

TMV represents an average in your area. Some do better, some do worse. A lot of that comes down to how much time and how many different dealerships you're willing to go to. If I got TMV on a vehicle I was specifically looking for early in the process, I'd be done. My time and aggravation level are worth a lot. If you don't mind, and enjoy the process, or are shopping several vehicles, you can keep trying. It's really all about what you're personally comfortable with and willing to do.
If you let us know what you're shopping for, we can direct you to some more specific discussions.
