So my wife and I got screwed on a Honda lease, and after reading about the mazdaspeed3, I went to drive one. The dealer happened to own both Mazda and Subaru. They let us do a 24hr test drive, and afterwards I have never wanted any car as bad as this. Throughout the entire negotiations, they kept saying "were not sure we can go lower on payments because the bank might not go for it (doesnt the GM handle this, not the bank?). They wouldn't match what my wife wanted them to for payments on the wrx, and she was eyeballing the crossteck all night, so I decided to get it for her and wait to get my wrx till later. 1 day and my wife decided she would rather have her corolla, so told me to return the crosstrek and get my wrx. Since the dealer has a 5 day no questions asked return, I said no problem. Now when I told them and tried to return it, they are saying I will probably have 20% interest rate instead of the 5% I was already approved with last night. I asked them why, and they said because I am moving from a family car to a race car. I said that's ridiculous, I was already approved last night and we almost had a deal on the wrx. Then they changed the subject and said wait till they can talk to the bank on Monday.
So at this point, I'm pretty fed up with them. But what bothers me is that they keep saying that they have to check with the bank every time we make a counter offer on payments and such. I have never seen a car dealer act like this. Please tell me that this is just a game they are playing? Because there is another dealer who wants is to come there.
Also glad to be here, I can't wait to get my wrx.
