Just remember that MSRP stands for “Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price”. It has no bearing on anything really. The price your dealer is asking is the price the dealer obviously feels the market will bear.
Your decision to buy or pass on it depends on how badly you want that particular car. Not if you feel they are marking it up or selling at a discount.
IOW: What is it worth to you? What is it worth to you to have it now vs a year from now? Two years from now? 3??
Let’s face it, it’s a luxury irrelevant purchase…you want it, they have it, you are not in the driver’s seat here. Are you willing to wait 6 months to save a thousand dollars?
for example, what if you wanted to take your family on a trip to Europe over summer vacation when the kids are out of school, and it would cost $20K. But if you were willing to wait 6 months when the kids are in school and the weather is horrible, you would save $5K…and if you are willing to wait a few years until your kids are no longer in school and don’t want tobe seen with you in public anywhere…you save another $5K! Or just wait long enough until you are too old and infirm to be able to go at all and you save the whole $20K!! 😂
What is it worth to you? If you got the Jack, buy it now and enjoy it! My 2cents…if you can’t afford it, buy a used Toyota Corolla off a rental fleet (smart move) and rent a RAV4 Prime or a Tesla or Corvette for your birthday or whatever!
