Thx. I won't forget it. Just want to be sure of my facts before we head down there. ty.VW does not have your money. Your dealer does. They may accidentally expect you to forget it. Don't.
I didn't either. It just kept strangely being left off the bottom line as the lease paperwork changed. I can't count cards in Vegas, but I can damned sure count money in Virginia.I won't forget it.
How did he explain that oversight?When I was going over the final lease contract, I noticed that the $500 hadn't been applied. Instead of redoing all the paperwork, my local dealer just cut me a check for the $500. Always good to read through the numbers before you sign. It was a simple oversight.
That wouldn't explain the 'simple oversight' on my deal.Maybe they are keeping the $500 as a deposit on future oil changes.
The $500 is simply the same as you putting down earnest money down. In fact that's what it is. It comes off the bottom line after all other calculations. Its a form of payment that's all.Did the $500 deposit reduce your retail selling price (prior to taxation) or was it loaded onto the bottom line after TTL/Fees were assessed?
(My car is on the carrier to the dealership and I am starting the fun back and forth with the Sales Manager as to what this thing will ultimately cost )
Some dealers are unscrupulous. Buyer beware when purchasing a vehicle. My cousin was buying an Escalade a few years ago for the dealers "Smart price" which included all taxes and fees. When it was time to sign the financing paperwork, he noticed sales tax was added. When he inquired about this they told him the secretary made a mistake, and they redid the paperwork. How many people fall for this?My initial price from the dealer didn't include this (conveniently for them)... I had to remind them to subtract the $500 (from the bottom line) as money already down.
Mine was applied to the purchase as well.For those of you who purchased an ID.4 already. Did the reservation and deposit get applied towards the purchase of your ID.4 or do VW simply send that back after you complete the purchase?
Funny how that happens. If you don't notice it's a quick $500.My initial price from the dealer didn't include this (conveniently for them)... I had to remind them to subtract the $500 (from the bottom line) as money already down.
