Is it okay for dealers like Copiague to raise the price on their cars if customer choose not to finance from them and/or tell them that he wants to pay in cash?

Asked by Nov 23, 2014 at 07:23 AM about the 2006 BMW 3 Series 330xi

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

I drove to Copiague from Rosedale,NYC to buy a BMW automobile that advertised for $9,995 about 2.5 months ago. They looked at my car and made an offer. However, when the head financing officer started to ask me about my method of payment and I told him a certified bank check; the price went from $9,995.00 to $15,995.00.

NO, not fair, The ol' bait and switch. Time to walk out the door and find a more reputable seller.

You should of finance from them then paid it in full on the first payment bait and switch on your part.
