How do you stop Bait and Switch

Asked by Sep 17, 2016 at 12:25 PM about the 2010 Porsche Cayman Base

Question type: General

How do you report "bait and switch?"  It is apparently common and acceptable
practice in my area for dealerships and independent car lots to advertise a car
that they do not have in stock.  Some would tell you "well, we had that car but
we sold it" but then they will re-advertise the car as a new ad when they know
they do not have it

It is all a ploy to get you on the lot, then they try to sell you something that you weren't even looking for. The best way to combat it is too just turn around and walk away then put in a review about the place.

I agree. Just wish they could be held a little accountable.

Think of it this way, it's one way to weed out the bad ones from the good ones before you purchase the car.

Getting you to the lot is more important. Another among many of their tactics.

Go online and read the dealership reviews. Then you're an informed consumer and won't visit the shady dealerships. Simple.
