Why don't any of the dealers respond to my requests for more information

Asked by Dec 11, 2015 at 05:50 PM about the BMW X3

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

I've found a bunch of cars that fit my criteria, have asked for more
information but have yet to receive any. It is frustrating to find cars I want to
see, buy and have no way to obtain further information like location of
dealter, whether the car is still available etc.
I am open to a number of models and makes, my car was recently totaled
and I have to buy a car immediately. I can pay cash or. if the dealer makes
more more by me borrowing 1/2 or less from them I will do that instead

They may not want your business but I have found that most dealers just don't respond to e-mails. Probably too many tires kickers.

I have had luck for e-mails that go directly to the dealer at least for new cars. E-mails that are from third party advertising sites never get returned in my experience. Try their website or call them.

If you put a phone number in they may be more likely to respond.

If the listing is a Dealer and no phone number is listed, click on the 'call dealer' in blue. You will get a window to plug in your phone number, then click 'call'. It's a ring-back. When they answer your phone rings

Yup, the want your phone number so they can keep calling and calling and calling which is why I avoid giving them my phone number.
