so im in search of buying a toyota celica gts. great, i find one with 28,000 miles on it for 14,700$
it is already a good deal, but tax+license+warranty= 17,800$
a brand new gts is fucken 23,000 with everything. i tell the seller (independent dealership) to just give me the best price he can, he gives me 300$ discount. wtf does 300$ do nowadays? im like you had a 2002 gts with TRD
kit with 33,000 miles on it and you sold it for 15,700 and ur giving me a 2 year older car without 2000$ kit for 14,400? hes like im only making very small profit on the car. i told him that he didnt pay over 12,000$ for the car, hes like its more than 12,000$ for him. the thing that sucks about this guy is that hes the calmest salesperson, and cheapest. he only goes down by 200$ only. then hes like i talk to the boss and see wuts the best we can do, but it wont be much of a difference. he told me that last time too and he never called and sold the car a month later for 15,700.
he has 5 celicas in less than a month, why? he says he dont make too much profit on the car, thats why you keep bringing in celicas?
conclusion: im pissed and i had to let this out. the car was leased for 4 years, lets say the lease was 300$ a month with no down payment(probably theres 1000$, but lets say no down, minimum costs). 300x48(4years)=14,400$
the car was then sold at auction, this guy is telling me his cost was 13,000$. yea right, i believe u. with his calculations, this is wut it looks like. 14,400(lease payments)+13,000(price sold at auction)= 27,400$
a brand new celica out the door is 24,000$, so dealership made that much profit? and you are stupid to buy the car for 13,000! he told me wholesale price was 13,500$, KBB whose dealer friendly has the wholesale price under 11,500$
it just sucks how much ppl can rip you off for used cars. it worst than new cars. i wish i never liked celicas or never seen them, ive been saving my money for the longest time i remember, stopped going out to save some more, and now when i wanna buy it, i get bs. it sucks that all this work is gonna go to the car, a car that ull never know wut will happen to it or when ull get sick of it. i just wish this fucker calls me tomorrow and say 16,500 out the door or less, but wishes never come true
