Default Call from the dealership

Yesterday the GM of finance called me, from the dealership where I purchased. He wants to buy my car back no matter the payoff and give me $7,000 factory to dealer incentives on a new nissan, honda or VW. ( interesting that all 3 have factory to dealer cash now ) All he could really say is that I have to schedule an appointment to talk and make a new purchase by the 30th. No word if I coluld get another Z or not. Seems kinda strange to me. Thoughts, suggestion or similar stories?

I wonder if Ent-Z got the same call, since we both bought at the same dealership.

Indeed, update us. This sounds interesting at the LEAST. This may be the turn of a factory recall (fat chance).

so basicly sell your z. get 100% money back then get 7k?

SOme how my brain is thinking maybe you have some special proto type 370z that was not supposed to be shipped to a dealer and sold to you hahah.

The other part of my brain is saying maybe theres something really wrong with your Z and it was never suppoesd to fall into your hands.

I would show up in a unmarked car not the z he wants of course and figure out whats going on for sh@ts and giggles.

oh yeah on a side note, you have fell very sentimentaly in love with your Z and parting with it for 7k extra still may not sever the emotional bond you have with it haha wink wink

Just a hypothetical

The dealership might have gotten a cash offer above the sale price you got it for as long as they can acquire the car by the 1st of July. They buy the Z back and give you incentives which are not a big deal to them and rake in a cash above asking price sale on the Z. Two sales for them.

Just check the back hatch and make sure you didn't overlook the duffle bag full of cash sitting back there...

I don't wish to throw a damper on this but I know of NO incentives from Nissan that would approach this "deal" being offered and certainly not on the 370Z.

I would be very, very, cautions with this and if anything is agreed to make absolutely sure it is in writing and signed by the GM of the dealership.

And no, to lay such thoughts aside, in today's world, "special" vehicles don't get shipped to dealers by accident...I won't say it absolutely cannot happen ever but it's so unlikely that it's hardly worth a nanosecond of consideration...vehicles that cannot be legally sold to the public are very much kept track of!

I'd still check to see if you have a hidden oil cooler all the same.

Is your steering wheel on the right side of the car? Just kidding, let them know I have the same car with 252 miles on it... I'll take $2000 over invoice if they need it that badly.

My opinion is not to go through with the deal, I am not sure what you paid for the car but I am thinking they have someone that wants to buy a matching set, GTR and 370Z in black for his/hers and offered MSRP.

I would have them order you a NISMO and trade it straight up.

He has touring/sport/nav in his car. It's worth more than a NISMO.

This is definitely very strange. It could have something to do with incentives if they sell so many cars this month, but he's offering it on 3 manufacturers, so that doesn't make sense. I think it is just a sales pitch. He said he would buy your car back "no matter what the payoff", well if you put a nice chunk down, that may be a rotten deal for you, and I'm sure the 7K only applies to certain vehicles. It would be no big deal to get 7K off a loaded Maxima right now.
