    i say we keep a master list if those dealers selling msrp and those selling above msrp.

    Then, we flood google reviews with positive praise for those selling msrp and hammer those who are not.

    Google reviews are a big deal. They start seeing their ratings plummet maybe they change their toon.

    Just a thought.

    That's actually not a bad idea. Call them out for advertising an MSRP price, then asking $10-20k more when you show up. Or worse yet, falsely advertise MSRP as $80k. Google reviews do matter to customers. I've got a running list to get started with on my douchebag dealer list.

    Would a dealer charging above MSRP be the only qualification? After all, you can have an outstanding dealer that provides great customer service, however, place an ADM on the car that a customer is willing to pay.

    I think a dealer that doesn't provide good customer service would be the qualification, not just ADM.

    Then again, no way I'm paying an ADM on the car. Some of the ADMs are equivalent to an annual income for some people and for what, a few keystrokes in to a computer ordering system.

    Benefit of a free market, dealer gets to tack on any price they want. Doesn't mean someone has to buy it there....

    If NO ONE buys at the higher price, NO ONE will advertise insane increases.

    It's a new car, a highly desirable car, and frankly dealers have every right to try to sell it at a premium. I can put my '07 truck on the market for $60k, it's my right to. If some dumbass comes and gives me $60k, not my problem.

    Let it rest.

    Agree its free market and they have the right. But we also have the right to tell people what they are doing in a google review. i think it speaks to the character of the dealership and i see no issues with writting that ina review.
