Default The car dealers!!!

Helped a friend buy a certified car at Ed Morse Cadillac yesterday. The first offer had an unusual line item on the paper. RECON $2,000. I asked 'What's that" I'm told its their cost to recondition the car for resale. I said it was not listed on the on line ad.....I said that's ridiculous- you add that to the selling price!! So when they asked what my friend would buy the car for I wrote BS next to the $2,000. They took it off. Many car dealer add a 'additional sticker' to used cars calling it ;additional dealer markup. Don't pay it! May will, not knowing it's negotiable. LET THE BUYER BEWARE-NEVER ACCEPT THE FIRST OFFER. BE PREPARED TO WALK OUT AND ACTUALLY DO IT, THEY USUALLY CALL YOU BACK THE NEXT DAY OR BEFORE YOU LEAVE THAT DAY.

I am currently going to battle stations with MB of Ft Lauderdale, bought a certified car online-it had every option I wanted-but the next day after I got it I found out , the twin roller blind was missing--how can a vehicle be considered certified if its missing a piece of standard equipment--dealer cost for the part is $1100.00

Been in touch MB customer car, may go to small claims court

The dreaded dealer add on window sticker!! Walk out immediately! There is always another dealer not selling mandatory useless add on crap, often amounting to several thousand dollars.

Not your typical club. No entertainment or food at meetings. Educational in nature. Tomorrow : Our speakers, Richie Breines, Shop Manager and Michael Siglga, Service Manager of Mercedes Benz of Gainesville. Their topic will be Mercedes Style and Safety. You are sure to learn some new things

Went to the Lincoln dealer on 441 Leesburg with a friend years ago, he was checking out new Lincolns. He was talking to a friend in the showroom while I was looking at the window sticker of a new SUV.

I saw an entry for "Dealer Rep - $900". A young sales rep came up to me, and right away I said - what's the dealer prep for? "Oh they don't do all the assembly at the factory, and we finish it in our dealer". I quickly said - what type of things do you need to do? A frightened look from him, then said " Like putting in the fuses and stuff". I took him to task and said - Do you tell all the customers that? How dare you... After a bit more give<>take a mgr came up and I told him that his staff is taking advantage of potential clients - just tell the truth.

My friend escorted me out and Lincolns at that dealer were not on his list.
