I had the car all picked out here in Tyler. Yesterday, as I'm waiting for the salesman to call me back with a price, I noticed it was no longer on the website. Gone. I soon confirmed that they sold it. Last I heard, he found me one in MISSOURI that I can HOPEFULLY take possession of SOMETIME IN THE NEXT MONTH. It shouldn't take that long, but that's how I feel. I went in and signed the paperwork last night, left them $1000 of good faith money and left to have a large beer with dinner. I hate this process, even though it's easier because I'm part of a "program" which eliminates the haggle. My cost is $150 over dealer invoice- which is who knows how much over what they really paid. Just once I'd like the TRUTH about car dealerships. They're just so.... dirty. Even though I really like my sales guy, I know he pulled a fast one on the apprasial of my POS. But that's a story not worth repeating.
Update: I just talked to him and he's found one in Dallas that has $375 worth of "extras". I told him to give me a final price and call me back. I hate this shit.
Update part deaux: The car is enroute.
So anyway, hopefully sometime in the near future you'll be able to see me cruising around in one of these. And cruise I will.
