So some are happy to get 20% off on 100% stealers markup.
Good if that makes you happy.
I am not paying mechanics for the repairs, but stealer charged me $150 for programing 2 keys to the same car. Supposable it takes about 5 minutes. Got car-wash for free, but they exchanged free cappuccino machine with coin-operated one.
Think about part dept like that. If I need to replace diesel injectors, the MSRP is $580 times 6 makes 3480. Dealer takes my money, order them at warehouse and calls me when they arrive. Warehouse price is around $1700, so paper work and phone call cost me $1780. How do you call that?
I will not even go thru the "free safety inspections" done without opening the hood nor lifting the car.
