I saw a 1998 Corvette listed as $11098 today, marked down from previous listings and I drove a good distance toward the dealership before reaching them by phone and he told me that your listing was wrong and the car is for sale at the previously listed price? I thought that it being the last day of the year the dealer was trying to get rid of inventory by drastically dropping their price. Was your listing wrong or was the salesman misinformed?

See if you can find a listing on a different site for the same vehicle at the same price. Preferably the dealer's own website. Print it out. Go there with printed ad in hand. Make 2 copies. Do NOT call ahead. Unless the dealer has removed the ad he must sell you the vehicle at the advertised price. Otherwise it's false advertisement. This very thing happened to my Nephew back in 2011 when he bought his '03 Silverado. The salesman was trying to sell him the truck for $13,995. I found the truck listed on the dealer's website for $11,499. Goes what, my Nephew got the truck for the advertised price of $11,499! HTH. -Jim

1998 Corvettes are listed from $12,500 for over 100K mileage, to $35,000 for an Indy 500 pace car convertible. Average pricing will be about $15,000 to $20,000. As with most cars, the more trinkets the more cost. the higher mileage the lower cost. What is boils down to, if you like the car and price, it is what the price should be. If you can hold the dealer to the $11,000 price range, grab it.
