Default Western Canadian dealerships contacted; their replies...

I emailed most of the dealerships in the big western Canadian cities (Edmonton, Calgary, Vancouver) with a request for pricing. I am 100% serious about buying the car I was talking about, and I'm not tugging their chain. I will post the email I sent them, as well as their responses to me, and you all can judge their customer service, and willingness to deal.

Greetings,

I am interested in purchasing a 370Z within the next month, depending entirely on the price and dealer-buyer relationship that can be established. I am familiar with the reasons that will be thrown at me to keep the car at MRSP, such as:
  • New model
  • High Demand
  • Limited Quantities


In which I could respond with :
  • Economy on the downturn
  • Unemployment is up, job security is down
  • People are more inclined to hold onto their money in uncertain times

So let's cut through the B.S. and work on a deal!

I am interested in financing the following:

370Z 6MT
Hakone White
Sports Package
Navigation Package

(No trade-in, approx 5-10k down, 48mo)

I am aware of this:

M6 Transmission
Base 370z MSRP: $39998
Base 370z Invoice: $36682

Navigation MSRP: $2500
Navigation Invoice: $2292

Sport Pkg MSRP: $4000
Sport Pkg Invoice: $3667



Nissan's 5.9% financing rate is also very displeasing considering the state of the economy.

This big question is this: What is your dealership prepared to do to earn my business? (Price reduction? Better financing rate?) I will mention that I am a member of a Z-Enthusiasts group (several online forums) in which I will be reporting back my experiences in dealing with the various dealerships I contact. This is an opportunity for your dealership to stand out above the others and offer an incentive for other buyers to go through you. I, as well as others in this group are willing to travel to obtain the best deal.

Awaiting your superior customer service!

Thanks for the opportunity. I agree with you on your comments about why we would like to keep MSRP and also your responses to those reasons.


With respect to the finance rate, that rate is non-negotiable. Nissan states the rate and if the customer chooses to finance then that is the rate that they get. I appreciate that you may find the rate high considering these “economic” times, but since I do not set the rates I cannot argue the point with you, whether I believe it to be reasonable or not.



You asked what my dealership is prepared to do to earn your business. I have included a few photos of our new facility, the best in Western Canada. Once you purchase the vehicle, the most important component (especially in the case of a Z) will be the level of knowledge of our technicians along with the service that you receive. We have the best and newest facility, along with all the equipment and skills to service that car correctly. We have 3 Master Technicians in our shop, one of which is certified to Nissan’s rigorous standards on our supercar, the GTR. With talent like this and the best facility in Western Canada, I’m sure you’ll agree that our service on your Z would be exemplary.



The vehicles are currently on factory restriction, and only orders that are completed with deposits and firm models configurations are being filled by Nissan. I have 3 customers that have already purchased vehicles and are awaiting confirmation of their factory orders. If I was able to secure a production slot for you, I would not be able to give you an ETA as of yet; however I would hope that I would be able to produce the vehicle in question by the end of June or early July. This is assuming that you put down a deposit to secure both the vehicle production slot and the pricing that I am about to give you.



The retail pricing including FREIGHT & PDI and the color charge: $48298

Air & Tire Tax: $120

Documentation: $195

Nitrogen in tires/Anti-theft Etching: $369

Subtotal: $48982

GST: $2449.10

Grand Total: $51431.10



The above pricing is full retail, which I’m sure as you know is what most dealerships are charging for the vehicle.



I am prepared to sell you the vehicle on a factory order for $51000. That amounts to a $431.10 discount. I would consider this discount as I do not have to pay a Sales Consultant a commission as our Management team would be selling you the vehicle.



If this offer is reasonable to you, you may either email me your credit card number to which I will run a $5000 deposit or you may call me at the office, whichever you prefer. My numbers are listed below for your convenience.



Thanks for the opportunity JC, and I look forward to servicing your new Z in the future!



Regards;

Hi;

you are correct that the vehicle will be hard to get and that most will sell
for msrp. The first white one we have coming is a sport without navigation.
To get e specific car you are probably have to factory order the car. The car
we have coming is 45,498 including freight and pde. We would be willing
to sit down and negotiate with you. The finance rates are 5.9% for 60 mos.
Please feel free to call me at 284-4611 to set up an appointment.

Thanks
Brian

Vancouver - Pan Pacific Nissan

Greetings J.C. My name is Richard Gartel, from Panpacificnissan (Richmond). Well I guess we have to find a common price that will make this happen! For your right the supply and demand on this vehicle is at a premium. I will give you and example of supply and demand for this new model of the Nissan GTR only supplied 200 across Canada. Originally this was priced at $83,000 + Freight and PDI and then Nissan said wait a minute we should sell this vehicle at $95,000 + Freight and PDI so away we go and still sold our last one last week at that price and sold out now for our allotment for the rest of the year. Hmmmmmmm, go figure! So I guess like you said letís cut through the B.S. and what do you figure a reasonable return on this vehicle should be for our dealership? Make me a reasonable offer with a deposit (visa or mastercard) and I will take it to my manager and see if we can find one for you that suits your specifications! Looking forward to earning your business asap. Thanks, email me at rick.gartel@panpacificnissan.com .
Cheers,
Richard Gartel, salesman of the year 2008 Richmond Nissan.
Sorry for the wall of text, this guy obviously doesn't know how to use paragraphs. Anyone else think sending your credit card# along with your offer is a good idea? rofl
