Rt 113 Auto Group in Croydon PA drops their price listings by $1000 +/- and
then notes later that the price is subject to a $1000 'internet surcharge' This is
bogus, unfair to customers and other dealers.

I agree, so now you know to just stay away from that dealership. I have many in my area that I won't even entertain a vehicle if it at a certain dealership due to past experiences and reviews. It's good your doing your due diligence. There is no law against such tactics.

Walk away, better yet run away.

It would make Car-Sense for Car Gurus to police their posts for such chicanery. Wastes everybody's time, and leaves a bad feeling about the site overall, not just this dealer!


It would, BUT Cargurus is a listing site, and policing what you are asking for, would require a lots of ears and eyes out there costing a ton of money for a site you use for free. Here is more info if you like to do some reading......
