That's door edge guards are ugly. I had to pay $250 with set of wheel locks as part of the deal for my Touring AWD.After negotiating a good price, it took my dealer a week to locate the color combination I wanted and get it transported. Unfortunately, it has the door edge guards which I hate. How do I get them off? If it's a hassle l'll take it back to the dealer.
Sounds like you got a terrible deal. No one should have to pay for stuff they don't want.That's door edge guards are ugly. I had to pay $250 with set of wheel locks as part of the deal for my Touring AWD.
It's neither (inexperience or impatience) in my case. I've been shopping since January. I found one dealer who would sell a future inbound without the add-ons, but without much of a discount. Cars, sitting on the dealers' lot were discounted more heavily. The standard add-on package ran from a low of $800 to one dealer having the nerve to say it was worth $3,000. The dealer I bought from also owns a Lexus dealership. My trade-in was a 2 year Lexus with under 10,000 miles. When I factored in the substantial sales tax savings, even with the add-ons, my out the door cost still represented a little over 4% discount off the the $31,135 MSRP. And a couple of the add-ons do have some limited value--tinted windows, floor mats, cargo mat, etc.Insanity i think is people that buy new vehicles with add on options they don't want. I don't know if its inexperience or impatience. If a dealer wants a sale (haven't met any that didn't) they will find exact vehicle you want... Another thread a lad said he is selling his running boards because the vehicle he had to make deal on had them. REALLY? i have probably bought 15 new vehicles. i have never had an add on option bought i didn't want..
