When I was looking for F150's. One dealership in GA charged a mandatory $700 doc fee. I was like your kidding me right! Its illegal here in PA. However, were I live I have to pay 7% tax on vehicles. Which sucks.
Also, I dont know if GM gets volume/quantity kick backs. When I looked at Ram the dealership was willing to lose 2-4k per truck on the lot because they get like 60k per month if they meet volume goals. Ford does not and thats why they hate eating into their Holdback. So, I dont know if GM does or not. If they do not and are like Ford, then there is no reason other dealerships shouldnt be able to match Lauras pricing. If Chevy is like Ford and only operates on what they actually make on a vehicle, rather than Chrysler that gives quantity discounts, then all dealerships are working with the same margins and should be able to price match each other for business. The only variation should be the Bonus tag GM gives.
When I bought my Colorado I had to go out of state because the truck I wanted was bonus tagged. So local dealerships couldnt match it unless they had an extra tag. They did say they would max or beet anyone's price on non bonus tagged vehicles. I would just have to get the final pricing in an email and prove it to them that that was the price.
So if you want a Canyon, I dont see why a local dealership wouldnt match Laura's pricing, because they are not all bonus tagged.
