Unhappy Withdrew deposit....

I had to withdraw my deposit from Grayson Subaru of Knoxville today...
My roof (homeowner) has begun to leak and the estimates thus far make getting the STi only a dream again. I was going to pay in cash and that would leave enough for an emergency... but not this big, would have only had enough to get part of a roof.
The sales manager was not pleased.. saying that the money was not supposed to be refundable after the price was known.?. I was not aware that they had officially released it but he said it was/is $30,995. I guess they are letting it out to the dealers for April 1???? They did refund my deposit and as I took the reciept my stomach turned.

I guess I'll just have to watch you all drive your's for now, I'll be the guy in the blue tahoe that just ran into a parked car trying to get a better look at your STi. I expect detailed accounts of first drives for good dream fodder.

Stupid roof....

Sorry to hear man. I am just keeping my fingers crossed that nothing happens to me between now and the time mine gets here. Roof is still covered for 5 more years. Only issue might be the house we will be starting in a couple of years. I will be trading the Baja in on mine (or rather mine and Kristi's.)

I'm sorry to hear about your bad news. I don't know what type of home you own or what your real financial situation is. Hopefully my generalization is not too far off base. Here in super expensive CA, a re-roof is about $4500 for 20 squares (30 year composite), done by a reputable roofer. Even if you owned a larger home, I can't inmagine it would be more than $10000. The current housing rates are very good. If you have the equity in your home it might not be that terible of an Idea to do the roof through this method of financing (home refinancing). The other alternative would be to take some of the 35+ K you have in cash for your car and pay for the roof. Then finance whatever you are short on the car through an automotive loan. The current rates on automotive loans are also very low, comparable to that of housing rates, even lower in many cases. The payments on a 10k would probably be about 250 or so over 4 years. Either of these can get you the ride that you want. Just some suggestions to try to help. I hope your luck changes for the better.

I was originally told I was #2 but this afternoon they could not find my paper work.... was not in the STi Folder they have, ~5-7 from what I saw. In the 20 or so minutes I was there they were not able to come up with it. Still I want to believe they were always being honest with me... but it did make me wonder. And they were always helpfull and seemed straightforward so I'll give them the benefit on this one.

The bank doesn't really like to give people loans when you only make 16k a year as a graduate teaching assistant. They also don't really care how much you have in stocks, bonds, or property. I barely have enough in bonds (nearly the only thing not devalued/relatively liquid that I would give up) to cover the car, and then my portfolio would be severely lopsided.

Hey this was going to be a loss of funds but not that bad after I added in the absolute fun/joy factor over the next several years. With the roof (low est. of 3 thus far being 8k- high being 12k) I can't even il-logically justify this expenditure anymore.

Sorry to hear that. But I'm fairly certain they will be making them or something better when you're ready.
