Are dealerships guilty of false advertising by lying about price drops?

Asked by Aug 06, 2015 at 12:17 PM about the 2007 Hyundai Sonata GLS

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

Two times now, I've contacted a dealership regarding a price drop (the last was a $3000
drop) only to find that the price drop was incorrect and, though the original listed price was
accurate, they would be willing to come down.  Are dealerships using your service to lure
customers in?  Isn't this false advertising?

Yes and yes, Is it right? No, but nothing is in place to stop them. Hard to find an honest dealership/seller these days.

If a price is posted and published on paper and internet by the dealer regarding a specific car then the price must be maintained regardless of the intent of the dealership. Many states have rules and regulations against it. Contact your State Attorney General and file a complaint.
