[quote="cvt"]well i have been searching for a tc for my fiance and have been calling all around southern california. wel i came across marina del rey scion and asked if they had a flint mica automatic tc....Travis, who was the representitive there told me yes. i asked no other options?? he said "no other options".
well i checked out the marina del rey website and found that they were selling a flint mica for 17900....almost 700 more than their no haggle price msrp. so i decided to chat with a scioon representive...and well...this is how it went:
Please wait for a Scion Customer Advocate to respond. You are number 1 in queue.
You are now chatting with Moe
Moe: Hi christian
Moe: How may I help you today?
christian: i have a question regarding msrp pricing
christian: the scion tc is listed with an automatic transmission @ 17200...but this dealer at marina del rey is selling one at 17900...stock
christian: i thought all prices were the same for every dealership
Moe: What options do they have on it?
christian: they say none...just that it's automatic
christian: i can send you the link
Moe: That shouldn't be correct.
Moe: Please do
christian: travis, a representative there told me it was an automatic scion tc...stock. but it is listed at 17,915
Moe: let me check hold on
christian: my fiance and i were hoping to buy one soon as this seems to be the only flint mica automatic in california available. all others have claimed a 10-12 week wait
christian: thank you so much moe!
Moe: None of them have any options mentioned
Moe: Did you ask Travis if there are any options on that one.
christian: yes...he said it was stock. that is why i am so confused as to the price
Moe: Let me call hold on
christian: thank you
Moe: I just spoke to Christian
Moe: He stated that that veh the 17,900 was a vendor vehicle that was sold to a private vendor under special circumstances
Moe: These circumstances are not applicable to the public
christian: so what does that mean?
Moe: The other flint mica is available with options build on
Moe: to it
Moe: That means it is sold
Moe: The 17,900 one is sold
christian: so he doesn't have the flint mica any longer?
Moe: The other one is available with it does have some options.
Moe: Yes they have one.
christian: i was hoping to get a stock one
Moe: It is 20,072
christian: yeah..that's a bit much for my fiance
Moe: You would have to order one stock if you wanted one like that. This one has some options already on it.
christian: thank you moe
Moe: No problem
Moe: There isn't any issue here with our pure pricing it looks fine.
Moe: Sorry I spoke to Travis
Moe: He said he is holding it for Chris
Moe: I don't know if that is you.
christian: i think that is me...he is holding the stock flint mica?
Moe: No the one with the accessories.
christian: huh? he told me that was stock
Moe: Ground effects kit, spoiler, sec sys, wheel locks
christian: oh my god
christian: even my fiance called to make sure that it was a stock automatic
Moe: Price is that 20,072
Moe: Sorry I'm just the messenger.
Moe: Maybe you have to spell it out for auto sales people.
christian: thanks again moe
Moe: Thank you for visiting. Please contact us again.
