What are upcharges?

Hi,

I made it very clear to my dealer that I won't pay over msrp, and he was cool with that, but then at the end of the conversation, he used the word upcharges. What exactly was he reffering to? Is this just dealer talk for soemthing I shouldn't worry about?

what he is possibly talking to you about is basically dealer mark up.like how many dealers charge more for a car BECAUSE NOT ONLY can they get away with it but it's a quote un quote "HOT CAR"

You had better ask him point blank what he means. Tell him to put it plain english, not dealer code talk. Or you may be in for a rude suprise cost wise.

So are we talking over msrp, or is this something he will take out of the price we agreed on(which basiclly was msrp in the end)?

well without hearing the entire conversation i can't be completely sure but i have a feeling he's gonna charge you more than base msrp or he may be reffering to as the cost of options to the vechile

Crap, I paid up charges. You couldn't get a Challenger or Camaro in my town without paying one.....$2000 for the Camaro and $5000 for the Challenger. Dealers have done this forever in my area, if you want a new production model.

If you buy one off the lot the Camaro will be $5000 above list. They are getting 8 for next year and I ordered the 3rd one.

I priced Challengers in OKC, Dallas, and Ft. Worth too get one $5000 to $7000for the small 5.7 L. The 6.1 are not available but will be $15000.

I did hear about Classic in Dallas letting them go for list after I ordered mine. I know, I know, a computer is your friend!!!

I've never heard that before...maybe the dealer fees for registration/inspection etc??? I'd give him a call and ask him to clarify.

I just remembered that I have a supplier discount code from my work. Asumeing it can be used for this car, it should knock off a good $3k-$4k. Can disounts be combined, like if I have a friend that has a GM connection? Or is it just one disount at a time?

You sir, fail....

There ARE dealers across the country who will not "upcharge" or "tact list"...

There are dealers here in Orlando who wanted 5,000+...it is not hard to drive an extra 20-50 miles to a dealer who WILL work with you..not only that, you can order from a separate dealer, such as scotty who will give you at or below MSRP and PAY a destination or "transport" fee...but that is 250-500 bucks, and wow you just saved 1,500 minimum. If you get below MSRP..hell you just saved 2,000 and up...I have a HARD time grasping the concept that someone has enough money in their life that they wouldn't mind having an extra 2,000 dollars or more. Hell, thats almost a year of college for your kids...........almost

You are saying you heard Classic going at list?...this is because you failed to do research and failed to make an effort, and you are the reason dealers GET AWAY and will continue to price the way they do....thank you

You should ask your dealer, not an internet forum. Only they know what they meant and how they plan to rip you off. Good luck.
