Tell the dealership to throw in all-weather floor mats and protection package for free!Hi Everyone,
I need some advice: so I got some pricing for an EX from my dealership.
Vehicle Selling Price $23,635.00
Sales Tax (estimate) + $1,899.52
Documentation Fee + $80.00
Tire/Battery/MVWEA + $8.75
Weight Fee + $8.00
Tag/Registration Fees (estimate) + $225.00
Electronic Filing + $29.00
Flat Add/County Fee + $10.00
Smog Abatement Fee + $20.00
Customer Deposit Edit
Balance Due (estimate) $25,915.27
Location: LA/Orange County
I checked truecar.com, and they actually had this "$1050 off MSRP (hatchback EX) guarantee certificate" for the same dealership. I emailed the dealership with my certificate and they said that they would honor the certificate. Therefore, I calculate it to be MSRP minus $1050 = $22,635 (So my estimated balance due would be 25915.27 minus 1050).
So I'd like to know if you guys had any tips or any "watchouts" when I go in tomorrow to make the purchase. I've heard that they accept the truecar guarantee but make up for it by throwing in all these random addons, etc.
I have an auto loan so I'll basically be a cash buyer.
Thanks for your time.
