- Into the dealership to Config hu? We just did it online. No presure and you get to take your time figuring it out.I'm so glad I found these postings. I was in the Dealership this weekend to configure my Cabrio. As it turned out, they had the exact car on the lot that I had just configured. So I thought I might as well just persue that one as opposed to waiting for the configured car to arrive.
This was a saturday and they told me that I would have to wait until Monday to get the credit application and trade-in information for my 2004 BMW 325. In the meantime, the sales person placed one call and told me that they would probably only be able to offer me 8,000 LESS than what I owe for my BMW.
SO needless to say, I will not be buying the Smart (this weekend at least). I have no idea what they would offer me for an interest rate through Smart, but I gotta believe that the deal would just not make sense.
A big reason for me to even reserve a Smart was that I just don't need a car much at all, so was looking for a lower payment, etc.
Has anyone else had a hard time justifying the monthly cost of a Smart.? additionally, NONE of the regular maintenance is covered by the warranty. the warranty that only lasts 2 years.
I left the dealer with an uneasy feeling. and I wanted this to be a fun experience.
Please advise. THANKS!
- So you are upside down on your loan with your BMW. How is that smarts fault. Why should they eat the difference.
