Is the dealership trying to rip me off?


I would like to buy a 2013 Chevrolet Spark. The sticker price is $14,300. He told me that it's only a couple of hundred above invoice. According to truecar.com that is not true. Also, they offered me two scenarios with bad credit. One was a $3,000 deposit with $350 x 72 payments. The other was a $4,000 deposit with $325 x 72 payments. My trade in is a Ford Escape 2007 in good condition. I owe $7,225 on it. I have negative equity in the vehicle. I owe more than it's worth by $1,000 and then they have to resell it so its more like $3,000. I have 92k miles on it.

    And no, I am not way off. I also have to feed my family and half the inquiries on my credit were illegal and put their by shady dealership. I have also helped dozens of people who have been burned by them. I have facts, you have opinions.

    Ah thanks. The reason why is because my new job requires me to travel 50 miles a day. I thought that a nice econo car would cut my gas bill in half because the Escape gets 20 mpg and the Spark can get up to 47 mpg.

    Also, avoid their "extra warranties" like the plague.
