The calculator sets selling price to 100% off MSRP?

Is it just me, or does the calculator automatically sets the Selling Price to 100% off MSRP as soon as you put in the MSRP… It makes more sense for it to default 0% instead yah?

Unless y’all routinely getting free cars 'round here. Where’s mine?

It defaults to lots of things that dont apply. Up to the user to put the proper info in.


It doesn’t really default to 100% off, it just has 0’s as placeholders, and obviously 0 is going to be 100% off anything.


@IAC_Scott Thanks for the explanation – that’s exactly it. The calculator makes $0 as the default selling price.

@vinhboy You are right though – there is room for improvement. Let us revisit the code when we get a chance to chance to enhance the user experience.

Thank you!


While on the subject of calculator improvements - - recently, while attempting to compare the difference in monthly payments on different MSRP builds for a vehicle, I noticed that changing the MSRP in the calculator effects the % off MSRP and not the selling price (this remains fixed). Seems that this should be the other way around so that % off MSRP remains fixed and the selling price is adjusted based on the MSRP as each time I had a new build to compare, I needed to correct the % off MSRP.

@vinhboy : the calculator has been updated so the selling price gets adjusted when the MSRP is entered the first time.

Hmmm what to keep as the constant is a matter of use case. Right now the calculator link shares the MSRP and selling price and the % off MSRP is a function of those two. Let us think about how to best go about it. :thinking:

My opinion is the discount % field should be fixed at 0% to start and just update with user input. Often times brokers are posting a set discount with different MSRPs and it makes comparisons difficult because you have to adjust BOTH the MSRP and the discount.

For example, I was comparing the MSRP for two different trims, both being offered at 13% but when I changed the MSRP to reflect the different trim, the discount rate changed rather than the selling price.

Hehe, there is a bug. The % off MSRP stays at 100% so the code update has no effect. I work in software so I am only laughing because I share your pain.

Hmmm how do I replicate it? Are you on mobile? The % off MSRP only updates when you click out of focus of the input field.

I noticed the same and can replicate it (I’m on desktop)

Here you go!

Thank you for catching the bug! I just pushed another update – hope that fixes it.


All fixed :smiley:
