Does anyone know how much the dealer holdback is for the RAV4s. I have read somewhere (forgot where) that it's only $65 and Edmunds said it's typically 2%-3% of invoice.
The holdback on my RAV-V6 was $517. I remember it clearly...schwartzy1 said:it is rougly $500-550 on the V6's
Yessiree, I was told the same thing about the hold back being deducted before they calculate the sales commission. I replied that since Toyota was paying his dealer directly for the holdback, he probably didn't deserve to earn a commission on this amount - nor did I have to reimburse his dealer for a non-expense. If all else fails, ask your dealer what his personal COMMISSION is on the holdback amount - some small fraction of the holdback $$. Then offer to give him cash in hand for that specific amount - so as a salesman he should be indifferent ;-)sloopG said:One of the dealers that I have been talking to went into a whole thing about holdouts not bieng included in the margin (profit) calc for the salesrep (must impact their commission)...
