Why is Bolton Toyota doing this?

  • They have a Camry I wanted but refused to give me a good deal.
  • I gave them 24 hours to give me a better deal. NOPE so I went to another dealership who gave me the deal I wanted
  • Bolton Toyota rather pay interest and let it sit on their lot instead of giving it to the other dealership. SO I contacted them and it was just endless sales pitches.

Seems petty and I hate how the majority of Toyota dealerships act like this.

Given the current situation with chip shortages and vehicle inventory. If you don't buy it, someone else will.

It's their business. Obviously they have a certain amount of money they wish to make on a vehicle. You found a satisfactory deal elsewhere. Most lots have almost zero inventory, so they can get away with doing this right now.

Don't take it personal it is just business. Their new car inventory may be low as many dealers currently are with popular models so they try to maximize profit. That is why you shop around.

I guess your definition of a 'good deal' didn't match what they thought was a 'good deal'. At least you found what you wanted elsewhere.

When I bought my Corolla hatchback it was the same thing. And that was pre covid.

I guess it is because they are such a big brand 🤷‍♀️

Most dealerships operate this way. Not unique to Toyota.

Mazda and VW dealerships were happy to trade cars.

It's not the brand, it's the dealership.

They did not accept your offer, but at the end, they will sell that car for about the same amount that you offered.

I have been in your shoes, the dealer wishfully thinks someone else will show up... and buy the car for MSRP.

If they had a good week, they don't reduce their prices.... if they had a bad week, they do. It could be the particular manager that day, the salesperson, etc.

The email I got from the manager said something like we refuse to sell this to the other dealership, good luck getting the value of this trade in after waiting 3 months and sales pitch

First mistake was buying Toyblowta. That said, you could find the same shit at any Canadian stealer. And yes it is petty/proud, but let 'em suck it!
