SO i miss the Redline 04..(my luck always) so why is this yellow one a bit higher than the Redline that just sold? with it being listed as a Base model?
Sorry i have no idea what comes on these SSR's when their base models.
thanks T. in Dallas
After you spend a few years in the automobile business you will understand that it is a people business....... :yesnodISLANDDREAMS said:LOOKS LIKE ITS AVAILABLE AGAIN ....CANT GET ZERO PERCENT FOR 72 ON THESE. ..why would someone want that you always give up rebates to do that and the final pay rebate was 7500 ....pay 7500 for no interest looks like you'd only pay 7000 in interest 72 months 8percent sometimes idont understand people . ....

I've been in the car business for 14 years, all with Chevrolet. I've seen this business go up and down, (most recently way down). I've only got another 8-9 years before I can retire again. And I know that this is a people business. I live with it every day. Our biggest problem with General Motors is after 9/11, we came out with 0% to jump start business. Instead of dumping it after 6 months, we are now at 2005 and everyone is still demanding 0%. Yes you bought both of your Z06's at 0%, because GM wanted/needed to dump excess inventory.
We are not selling bread or milk out here. We are selling hard objects that take a little time for the consumer to think about before they buy. If Islandreams can't figure that out, he needs to get out of the business. And you need to understand, that GM can't offer o% on everything they build. The end of the business world as we know it, would be just that, THE END. I will now return you to your regularly scheduled programing. Do not adjust your dials. (I feel so much better after these sessions doctor). :lol
ISLANDDREAMS said:PAYMENTS ON THE SSR 60 MONTHS WAS THE SAME AS WHAT WE QUOTED WHEN YOU FIGURE IN SALES TAX FOR THE STATES THAT SOME REQUIRE IN ORDER TO KEEP PAYMENT THE SAME TERM IS STRETCHED but in all cases with gm inorder for the cheap rates you give up the rebate with gmac on every vehicle which if you dont give up rebates you work off standard bank rates but your more than welcome to try eloans or roadloans yes i have a tendancy to be hot headed but only because i had this one available i did not purchase it until i had a buyer for it but now i have to arrange transport to the dealership if i dont have a buyer by tommorrow am so i have to ship twice being new 2004 i'm not allowedot have them in inventory on the day they are reported to corporate which is friday but i have already signed a check for this vehicle and a contract so have 30 hours to have it sold or i personally get charged a considerable amount for having a new previous model year inventory instock the price stays the same for whoever would like it i just have to sell it by close of business tommorrow and exchange money by close of business on friday just puts me in a time cramp for those in the car business they have probably seen writedown policys and know what i'm talking about as aged inventory concerns at least for larger stores this may not apply at small town stores but unfortanatley it does at a large complex like the one i manage at i apologize for being a hot head but hopefully you understand now but standard bank rates are usually higher than incentivised but price is reflective

Hey Steve you say you cant believe someone would go into a deal without having their on financing lined up is kinda of a weird statement to me. I mean why should someone have to go get their on financing when thats what the finance managers job is about too. SURE its nice to check around first on your on and see what rates should or could be if you choose to go your on route, but in all my 14 new purchases of vehicles i have listened to the dealerships interest rates first. Nothing wrong with hearing them and then going with your on if you can find a cheaper rate. All dealerships should read this... "A finance manager can either make you or break you" It sometimes comes down on a purchase (like mine today) but comes down to the finance manager. I dont think he shopped the rates for me well enough, and also.. Higher interest rates is how some dealerships make up some money selling their units at lower prices. (not saying this about this dealership because i havent heard any complaints about this dealership) BUT I happened to work at a young age at a dealership (wont mention the name) but i heard all the time about hitting someone up for a higher interest rate and the customer grabbing it because they either needed the vehicle or wanted it that bad. Thank God i never have needed or wanted any vehicle i purchased in the past that bad.patrol said:Mork- sorry you're gettin stuck at the eoq. I am a little surprised that a customer would go into a deal w/o having their own financing lined up. Also surprised that someone wouldn't understand the rebate OR low rate not both. I have to say your finance guy was a little irritating - I know he wasn't makin anything off me but the first thing he said what rate did you get and when I said 4.75 he said he could have got me 3- just tried to make me feel crappy which didn't work. I did have a interesting talk with him (all televised ha) about rates and stuff.
The funny thing was when we were all done he showed me how he could have got me a rate of around 5 which is where I was anyway. I know they gotta make a living too. The dealer should have a different process for osl deals - purely administrative with no bs.
OH Steve all great points you make, i just work so much i dont have much time to shop interest rates and then when i do its late nights like now. I will give Josh another call he seems to be a very nice guy and i just wish they would have shopped more spots for lower rates. I will also call my credit union and see what i can get their rates for. I think i was flipped out when i heard 8.1% and then 72 months.. :skep ...lol.. how old are you Steve? i must be an old man in my 40's to you then.. haha Hey any input you can give or advice throw it my way, i dont think i can ever learn enough about anything. I really got great deals on the Z06's with the rebates/incentives and the no interest rates. I always say if a dealership wants to sell a unit bad enough they will do what it takes.patrol said:I am so jaded by dealer finance people I don't even give them a chance. :lol I guess it's me, maybe I should. And I have yet to find a dealer that I can trust in the money area, so I just remove the entire component from their control. I think it all started because I have always been a younger than average buyer of more expensive cars so for some reason they think I'm stupid. I can't even count the number of times I've had someone say " how much do you want your payment to be" good god.
Thank you for being repetitive and beating the fact into me that you CAN get both 0 percent and rebate. I really did not know that was possible.
good luck with the search - if reliable has your car and you can get outside financing give josh a call. he really is a good guy.
