Now the story:
I just walked out of Farrish Subaru. Those people are slimeballs and the scum of the earth. All they do is try and play games.
Here is one game they play: Idiot salesperson (Howard) writes down a number and draws a fake signiture block, and then requests that you initial it if you are interested so he can go back and talk to king slimeball POS sales manager (Rick Ski). I told them this is total BS and that I would initial and draw a smiley face if it would make them happy.
The sales manager gave up on the salesman trying to work me over and then tried himself. After I said I wanted to pay 22,800 for the car and nothing more, he then tried to screw me on the trade in and kept asking me what I think it worth...blah blah blah...trying to play with the figures and confuse me or something. I almost walked out each time more slime came out of his mouth and pen. So finally he offered me a semi-decent bottom line including tradein...Actually, he said what will you do the deal for and I said 21000 with trade. He said OK and we shook on the deal.
So...then we had to go to another building and talk to the finance person...I have decent credit so I got the 4.8. I made a $500 deposit so I could get the color I want in a dealer exchange (DX in their speak). Then we had to walk back to the sales building. I was waiting for the salesperson so he could give me a ride to the metro. I was waiting outside talking to my buddy all excited about the car I got when sales manager joker came out and said he had made a mistake. He said I got the "dealer cash" and the "special financing" and that I couldn't get both and that he had to redo the deal.
I said him, "you are playing games." Salesmanager Rick said he didn't know if he wanted to do business with someone that was insinuating that he was playing games. Rick kept trying to get me to sit down so he could show me the reworked numbers, but I had lost my patience at that point. I was about to say "I really want to buy this fffing car, but you keep playing games." But Rick cut me off before I could say the part about him playing games again.
This is the best part. He warned me about my language and said this is not a *****house and I am not a *****. I said I gotta go and walked out the door.
i think ep is right about farrish. i purchased my 06 wrx from stohlman. they are far more professional then farrish.
