my transdeal.ca experience

I was in the market for a 2013 ford explorer sport model.
MRSP including tax is $58,962 for the options I wanted (voice nav & adaptive cruise control)

I started shopping around the dealers in my area. But quickly came to realize there wasn't much room for negotiations from the dealers. So I decided to give transdeal.ca a shot.
The next day I got a email from them with a pre negotiation price of $53,448
I then sent transdeal a email back to confirm the price was plus tax and quickly got a email back telling me this was there on the road price. I was still skeptical that there would be extra charges from the dealer they gave me.
But no I'm now on the road with a on the road price of $53,448.

I'm now a believer of their service and would recommend them to my friends and to the RFD community.

Interesting, but skeptical. Every review on the 'net, including other threads here on RFD is made up of people with less than 10 posts - all too convenient.

Just posting my experience, everybody on RFD had under 10 post at one time or another.

Having been on this forum for many years, you'd be amazed at how many people with less then 3 posts post a review and within a month never post again. This happens quite often as there main intent is to post a positive review about a company they own, or work for or have vested interest in. Believe it or not it happens many times.

Most that wish to remain members don't post reviews till they gain credibility. Credibility is a strong factor since it's hard take the word of someone that just joined. And yes, Homestars in some cases are somewhat to the vendors advantage since we've seen bad reviews deleted so as to aid the vendor that advertises on Homestars.

In a nutshell, newbies that post reviews as there first couple of posts sets up red flags on this forum.

I see members on RFD are skeptical all the time. I've been lurking on RFD for years and got good deals from this site. Just posting my experience I had.
The more info on buying something is better then less info especially for big purchases.

Bought my '11 GTI from transdeal. Checked out all Ottawa area VW's and some GTA dealers the room for bargain was minimum back then (ie. less than 1k). Tried transdeal input the car with the options I want, they came back with the pre-negotiated price in a GTA dealership with almost 2k off. I was asked by transdeal to speak with the sales mgr direct so I did, closed transaction within 10min I was there, car picked up after 2 weeks perfect condition and under 50km on it. Zero hassle will do again.
