Anything is possible. They are using the bait and switch tactic. Offer a sweet deal then raise the price. Is it fair or moral? No, but it's done. Negotiate with them or walk the other way.

First of all ...that is far too much for a 14 year old Kia ...sheesh ...you can buy a 14 year old BMW 7 series for that price!!! Walk away is my advice! This dealer has proved themselves to be dishonest. If enough people do NOT patronize those dealers that are baiting ...they just may stop. I suggest you buy private & save yourself some money. You may know not or trust the private seller ...but this dealer has already exhibited non-trust-worthy tactics ...so I personally would not spend my money there . In closing ...compare ...compare ...compare! You will find a '97 Kia cheaper than THAT!
