Walked into Subaru dealership really excited to look at WRX in royal blue. Only client in the showroom and the staff has the music blasting as if it’s a club.
Get greeted and right off the back because the car is in the showroom I can’t drive it unless I am ready to buy. No kidding…I walked into the showroom pointing to the car I wanted …Mr. Salesman. I confirmed I’m serious and he grabs his boss “Bill” who strolls over and aggressively states the lease price ($650 with only first month payment 36/10k with a sticker of $33,800)and indirectly tries to confirm I can afford it before allowing a test drive. My Salesman is given permission to allow me to drive another similar car, but wanted my license, insurance and credit card…What? Never had anyone take my credit card for a test drive! I debated and he persisted and I finally obliged. Finally after 30 minutes paperwork to get a test drive… Really enjoyed it so within 5 minutes I back in the showroom to deal
I showed Mr. Salesman their online lease calculator from their website suggesting a lease price of $505 with first one payment and he goes back to Bill and reverts with $650 a month ignoring their website calculator and other calculator.
Simply jumped into my 60k truck and sped off.
I understand there is a shortage of vehicles, but requiring a credit card for a test drive and interviewing me to confirm I can afford it?
Never going back to this dealer again! They rather pump up the music and party then actually work!
