The vehicle I inquired about has been sitting on the
lot for 60 days, no saves. I simply emailed the
dealership asking to schedule a test drive. I got no
reply but the next day the vehicle had 10 saves and
now as it is almost the day to go in to test drive it it
is in negotiations. I am new to buying a car from a
dealership but this seems very shady and a
negotiations tactic by the dealership.
Does sound like a shady tactic. If this is a local dealership just go there and see what the deal is. If it's a distant dealership just keep shopping elsewhere.
