What, you bought a car without a signed agreement? Or was the dealer's option to increase the price buried in one of several documents they had you sign w/o explaining that 'gotcha?'Been waiting several weeks for a Toyota SUV hybrid. It just came in, and We have been notified that the price is $2600 higher than first agreed upon.
Cherish your TYM dealer, we don’t see that kind of thing around here.
Your best negotiating tool is your ability (option) to walk away. All it takes to lower prices are footsteps in the right direction.
Those forms you signed were all drafted (written) by the DEALER"S LEGAL BEAGLES for the sole purpose of covering his ass. Next time, read them before you agree to abide by them.
BTW, you likely could still refuse delivery and demand your deposit(s) be returned in mall claims court - forcing the DEALER to defend the hidden clause(s) he relied upon to charge you the extra money. It would cost the dealer more to defend the action than to waive the upcharge. So he might appear himself or send a manager to court.
Remember folks, if you act like a carpet, folks'll walk all over you.
