I found out signed paper work means nothing to dealers.
I had a signed deal at a GM dealer on Friday with the car promised to ready on Monday. The salesman calls me on Saturday and says his Gen Mgr gave the car to another dealer in a swap he had promised. I went back to the dealer to make sure they shreaded all my personal info I gave them and to give them a piece of my mind. They all just shrugged their shoulders -tough sh*t. It was incredible. They asked If i wanted to see if they find another car in a swap for me. I told them to go ahead and they found one. They said they would have it in 3 days. I called them back in 2 days and said I just bought a Toyota so forget your car. I'll never go back to GM dealer again.

#470 of 596 Cash & Trade-In for a Better Deal ?
Jan 23, 2010 (7:40 pm)
My wife and I are looking to buy a new Venza (09 or 2010 doesn't matter) on May 1st. We are saving and are going to pay cash. We have a trade-in, 99 Isuzu Rodeo-kbb = ~2,000. I want to offer 20k and my trade-in for a base model Venza with keyless entry and the moon roof. Does anyone have any experience with using "cash" and a "trade-in" to get a better deal similar to this? Thx for reading my post.

Just shop for best OTD when you are ready to buy. If you tell the salesperson that you will buy in May they will lose intrest in you REAL fast.

sell the isuzu through private party sale versus trade in. if you want to trade it in- try carmax for a low end price (if one is close by)- they will buy it- whether you buy a car from them or not. as others has said- trade ins confuse the issue- get your lowest OTD price- and then discuss trade in from there.
#473 of 596 Bought a 2010 AWD Good Deal?
Jan 24, 2010 (9:13 pm)
Ijust purchased a new 2010 Venza 4cyl AWD.
Sticker was $28825 including the Destination charge. I paid $25475 with all the dealer fees but not including sales tax, title and registration.
From what I have been reading it looks like I got a very good deal.

In reference to alan226, I have emailed a dealer in SC, he says he can sell me a venza for 23,999 and that doesn't include my trade in. I am hoping to get him down to 20k with my trade. I guess it all depends on how much it matters when buying with cash in hand.
BTW: What does OTD mean?

Is $23999 for an AWD? I was basically offered that price ($23999) for the for the Front Wheel Drive model from a local dealer.
$23999 for the All Wheel Drive model is a steal

OTD = out the door (as in negotiate your best/lowest OTD pricing)
#477 of 596 Need an opinion on seat adjustments..
Jan 31, 2010 (7:40 am)
HI,we have finally decided that between the Mazda CX9 and the Venza we like the Venza much better...in my opinion better workmanship and materials in the inside, seats feel more confortable etc..Mazda CX9 is a great looking vehicle, but when compare to the Venza we think Toyota did better...just my 2 cents...yesterday I took my wife to the Phila auto show and she dicided on the Venza,the only question I have is as to how high the driver seat will move, she is 5 feet tall and the Venza on the floor had no power at all....oh.. she refuses to go to the dealership until the day that we pick up the vehicle (we had some bad experiences in the past)..so anyone with a short wife let me know confortable id the driver seat hight...thank you all...
