Thread: Dealer Gouging...
01-18-2006, 08:54 PM #1
So I started shopping today for a 06 GPR...
Got several calls still out and expecting faxes with best price tomorrow:
But here's a good one for you guys:
I call Ron Turner Cycle in Jacksonville, Florida to see if they have any. They've got 2...Well OK why don't you fax me over your best OTD price on one...No trailer or anything, just the ski...
The sales guy I'm talking to, Bryan, obliges and sends me a fax:
So I call him back and ask him where a ski with a $9200 MSRP picks up the other $1870 when tax is only like $650...His answer:
Freight is $500
Assembly is $300
Taxes is a chunk, then there's registration
He then proceeds to explain to me that they can't sell it for less than $10,500 as that would cost them money to sell it to me at that price...
So I hung up on him...This after the other dealer I called told me they wouldn;t have any until early spring...
Edit - Anybody know any dealers who aren't rip off artists within 4-5 hours of Jacksonville?

For fun and to teach the guy a lesson, I say everyone calls him to enquire about this ski!

I used to sell Hondas at Honda of Jacksonville. And have a personal friend that owns a dealer in buffalo NY. He says that motorcycle has freight, prep and all included in the MSRP. Tax and tag are extra. These dealers only do it because people still buy them. In buffalo I have never seen a setup fee. BTW Honda of Jax is the highest with fees.
