    Okay...I'm greedy.

    I just bought a vehicle this weekend for $13,995 that had a $500 rebate included. (Selling price $14,500 and $13,995) after rebate.

    I receive call from sales manager of said dealership today. He wants me to re-sign a sales form because of a rebate error on their part.

    Manager states that this new sales slip will not alter payments or selling price at all.

    However, he continues to say that there was a $2000 rebate that was supposed to go to the customer when the car was purchased. He wanted me to sign the sales form raising the "price" of the vehicle to $16,500 (of course minus the 2,000 rebate and 500 rebate bringing it back down to $13,995)

    He continues to state that the price of the car is not going up, but the dealership needs to adjust the vehicle list price do to a misconstrued rebate. (The dealership initially thought that they were getting the $2,000 rebate for them, thus equaling the same price of $16,500.

    Pretty much the dealer thought that the rebate was supposed to go to them, and it turns out that it is supposed to go to me (the consumer).

    I told the manager I will not sign the form until I think about it more.

    My thoughts are that because they sold the vehicle to me for $14,500 minus $500 rebate (no $2,000 rebate ever mentioned), I am still entitled to that $2,000 back to the customer.

    What does OT think? :eek3: Can I get my $2,000???

    No cliffs! Sorry!

    I doubt they will let you have it. I'm sure they'd rather no one get it.

    I would call the manufacturer's corporate help line. You agreed on a selling price with the dealer -- $14,500... Any customer-rebates not 'signed away' are YOURS.

    yeah...I called the corporate line and they do not know anything about a 2k rebate. They said that it could be at the regional level though and they don't have access to those.

    They stated that I would need to contact a local dealer to find out what regional rebates they have.

    i don't get it. in the other thread you're saying what an awesome car buyer you are. in this one, you didn't know shit about a rebate available in your region. check edmunds.com, they show alot of them there. if not, call the dealer, tell them you're looking to buy one and ask what the rebates are.

    It sounds like your prized dealership fucked up and the consumer finally won a battle!

    That's because they are legally obligated for doing that. You agree on a price for the vehicle, and any consumer rebates apply AFTER that price.

    You're a fucking idiot for not knowing how it works. And that's not really a big deal -- but it's hilarious because you're claiming to be some "expert" car-deal negotiator... But you don't know jack shit about it.

    :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

    Go to www.fox.com and watch the latest King of the Hill.... It's right up your alley. Hank Hill thinks he's this bad-ass car-buyer... Then peggy finds out he's gotten ripped-off with every car he's bought.
