Yep, that’s them. Anything to get people in the door before they start ripping the band-aids off. I live 10 mins from the dealership and won’t go there. Didn’t buy my Stinger or my wife’s Telluride from them.Are they the dealer that always had the lowest “internet” prices and huge Stinger inventory in the DMV area. I’m not in the loop anymore lol.
So your OTD included all taxes and fees before cash down or trade?I ended up haggling for over 5 and a half hours with them on Monday night. But came to terms on a new GT1 RWD. My OTD before my cash down or trade in calculated was $37,269. Help me out fellow Stinger bros, did I get a good deal? Lol
I completely agree with you as it was my exact experience back in 2019. I drove down to these guys from the Baltimore area because they had the best price I could find. I told them that I wasn't interested in coming down until it was time to pick up the car and did the entire process of negotiating online. Once I got an out-the-door price I took off work early and drove down during rush hour. They took my trade in to "inspect" it and we went for a ride in the car I was planning on purchasing. When we get back, I pulled up the e-mails with their staff discussing the price and the specific VIN, etc... only for them to be confused. The salesman who was actually really nice went and talked to the online guys and then his manager and came back saying same some of the incentives that were offered to me were from months ago and he didn't know why the online people were still offering it.Yep, that’s them.

There are 1 or 2 salespeople that are very good who work there. They do more work than they’re given credit for basically by cutting through management’s bull crap of wearing potential customers down for 5 hours before putting anything in writing. Sadly, I met them after I decided to take my business elsewhere. They were upfront about the “internet” pricing and how their sales managers take advantage of people.
The dealership is always so busy because there is little showroom space for people to sit and the people that are sitting have been there for 5 hours going back and forth with management while salespeople chuckle it up in the back room.
They routinely take advantage of out of town shoppers who shop based on the price online. Only to drive several hours to the dealership and be taken to town over price, incentives, financing, and add-one. The dealership seriously believers that anyone who drives, or flies, hours to see them won’t leave without the car regardless of if the price is no different than their local KIA dealer once they arrive.
