has that thread been closed? because i can't gain access to it.
well anyway, a dealer can say anything they want. it makes sense if the dealership will say that they will sell the car at about invoice because of these reasons;
1) the salesman/woman made a mistake, keeps making the mistake.
2) the dealership is prepping up future customers in hopes of a bidding war when the cars roll off the truck, i.e., bascially the markup being implemented in a sneaky fashion. a hot customer is the best customer in retail sales.
3) the price quotes could be based on after the initial wave of cars get sold by dealers terms (markup). meaning that you might have to wait til next years model if the dealership can't allocate any more (which is most likely the case).
