Buying a 2023 Toyota Tundra, and saving $500 off of MSRP.
It seemed inevitable that I would have to pay MSRP for the vehicle given the supply constraints and lengthy wait times. From the time I made a deposit until I got delivery, I waited 11 months. I was able to get the dealer to agree that they would not add any more accessories in exchange for around a 15% discount on the ones I truly needed.
Buying a 2012 Lexus RX 350, and saving $500 off of MSRP.
The 2012 RX350 replaces our 2005 RX330. We were extremely pleased with the performance and quality of the vehicle, so we automatically approached our local dealer for a new one.
Unfortunately, the Wholesale Report did nothing for the purchase. The sales person didn't even want to look at my print out and didn't care that I new what the difference in retail was. My only option was to accept dealer accessories with no adjustment in full MSRP. We managed to get almost $2000 in accessories.
I'm not really happy, but this seems to be the normal in my city, as the Audi dealership also told us the cost of the Q5 was full sticker price.
