Oh man, that sucks! My FI bought his car new before we dated, we are Toyota people too (Yaris). But I was friends with him when he was looking to replace his old civic and people were doing the same thing to him, left and right. I mean if you don’t want to sell something then DON’T PUT IT ON THE INTERNET! GAH! He end up going new with Toyota and they have been nothing but great to us. Hahaha, I am also glad you screwed that first guy good, that sounded pretty sketchy at best.

Good luck with your car hunting.

you go girl – that’s a chunk of change you’re putting down. there is no reason you should be brushed off or treated unfairly! Good for you. And good luck finding your dream car! I got a new car in 2008 and got the run around from a few people. One person lost my whole sale because he would not take off the shipping costs to buy the car. I was willing to drive 300 miles to pick it up. You know what? I tracked the car down, called the dealership, they sold it to me AT COST, and I picked it up the next week. The guy lost an extra 3 grand b/c he didn’t take off a BS charge. Oh well for him, good for me, good for the other dealership that now has our business for my husband’s next car, despite it being 300 miles away. They totally rule and we’re going back for sure!

Sometimes buying new is cheaper if you’re taking a car loan. I think toyota has a 0% interest rate on new cars. I calculated it & it would be cheaper to buy a brand new car from them now than buy a used car that’s less expensive with the interest rates for used cars.

Wow I’d never buy from him, some people just don’t want to part with their stuff & they should make that decision BEFORE trying to sell it to someone. Glad you red-flagged him 🙂

I agree, serabell – I had to finance the majority of my car and it was a better rate and deal than buying a used car. They’re giving out free money these days, and a 0% interest rate is hard to pass up!
