AutoNation Rip Off

I got this e-mail from my local Auto Nation USA Dealer. They are holding a drawing for a 350Z. What they are asking is just sick, and wrong. They make it sound like its a once-in-a-lifetime deal. Who in their right mind would pay for all the dealer added crap? Not me.

Dear Sameer Kumar:

This 350Z was custom ordered by a client and he will not be able to purchase it. His loss is your gain! If your not interested in the car maybe your have a friend or family member who wants this car? Can you can forward this e-mail to them? They will thank you in advance for thinking of them! And I will thank you too.

That's outrages! For ~$43K I'd rather pick-up a discounted and new C5.

Its absolutley sickening. Nissan needs to do something about this bull**** going on with their dealers. I know that MY nissan dealer (No, not AutoNation), has one 350Z on the lot (white), and are selling it for $32k (no stupid dealer add ons, though they had plenty of opportunity). They have one slight problem, everyone loves the car, but not in white :D hehehehe

Wah wah fucking wah!

Dealers are out to make money. If they can add all that crap and find a sucker to buy (and they will), they are sitting pretty. Most of you guys are too young to remember the ridiculous markup that Honda dealers applied to Accords. They did for several years and they sold EVERY ONE. Same with S2000. Same with Miata. If people don't buy, the price comes down. Supply and demand, baby. New Z, low supply, high demand, dealer "price adjustment". C'est la vie. Suck it up. Save your pennies. Whine about something that makes a difference, like Bush's ill-advised desire to invade Iraq.

John Burns I'm not. I get called old at work every day.

I just get tired of kids wet behind the ears crying about silly subjects because they have no clue about human nature or economics. Their attention is focused in all the wrong places. Consider my earlier message a wake-up call.

i understand completely what you are saying although i think if we dont do this war, we stand a chance of another 9/11. Complacency tends to lead to laziness IMO.

Since this is not a political forum, I'll just say that we stand a chance of another horrific terrorist attack whether we invade Iraq or not. We are certainly NOT complacent anymore.

The only good thing about this is we have a clear goal, unlike Viet Nam, of which I nearly had a ring-side seat.
