    Top line? I’ve seen it, where they show a higher sales price but offset by a higher trade in.

    But as a wise man once said, “the only difference, is the difference”.

    Yes, in the finance office, on occasion, the OTD price was higher than negotiated. Since I made it clear that the OTD price was my final one, I said the deal was off unless corrected, and it was.

    Yes, never had a situation where it wasn't corrected, but it has happened enough lately and in my lifetime that I feel the mistake might not be so "innocent."

    That could just be the sales side not being able to calculate tax and DMV fees exactly right. I think OTD prices screw them up, since they have to back into a sales price. But if you have an OTD price agreed to in writing, And they honor it, no big deal.

    I as a skeptic believe it is usually intentional. If I made a verbal agreement and it is not adhered to, the deal is off.

    Just waiting on them to add to the "We Owe" sheet, which happens to be the 2nd to last sheet of 30 you have to sign..

    The "We Owe" sheet should state "Shipping to San Diego" since they didn't charge me a single buck on the retail sheet/contract. No mention of it; the "We Owe" sheet is appropriate for that.

    I've been receiving solicitations from the local Audi dealer to have the battery checked in the Q5, 15% off replacement. I have no idea if the battery is original and the car is 4+ years old. So far the battery seems fine but it really hasn't been cold yet. I guess I should have it tested. Thankfully the battery is located under the floor of the cargo area and not under the front seat like the Q7. I replaced the battery in the TL less than a month ago.

    I've received a few solicitations direct from BMW they would come to the house to complete the airbag recall. It was already done but I probably would have taken advantage seeing as my preferred dealer isn't all that close and don't offer loaners if a car is over a certain age. A stance I found out through survey feedback wasn't entirely accurate.
    One of the nice things about my local BMW dealer. Loaner for anything, no questions asked.

    Oh, and while I was at all of this, I went ahead and did a permanent install of a trickle charger in the car so that I can just plug it in from the bumper when needed rather than popping the hood, etc. While I was under the car, I confirmed that, yes, the car really does have an oil leak coming through the bottom of the bell housing, so now I get to take it back to the dealer for them to fix what they should have fixed back in August. I swear these guys will do anything to avoid warranty claims sometimes. :/

    A customer of mine has a 2014 or 2015 Cayenne Diesel. He has close to 180K miles on it. He has noticed a very small oil leak which has gotten worse over the last year. The dealer’s diagnosis was that all the seals on the bottom of the engine are bad and need to be replaced. The dealer told him it is an “engine out” procedure that will cost him upwards of $12,000.
    yeah, mine is supposedly an "engine out" affair as well... which is why I want them to take care of it while it is still under warranty!

    I pulled the battery (from under the seat... a real PITA to access, even when it is not -20F outside)

    I need to know: what seat?? On an SUV? That seems very odd.
    Driver seat. There are two large bolts that hold the front of the seat rail, and the back of the rail is hinged. I must go around behind the seat to pull all the plastic "pretty" cladding off the back of the rails, then it will hinge toward the rear passenger compartment to allow access under it. But, the clearance is poor, and the battery is huge (weighs about 60#, and it goes in at an angle...length-wise!).

    You're right... you don't! Dealer swap, if you really want to get ahold of one, or just travel a bit to snag one.

    In speaking with him about my rental, he explained that I had the Voyager, and he is of the opinion the Pacifica feels like an entirely different vehicle. Better suspension, parts quality, etc.

    I drove a Pacifica rental from LA to SEA earlier this year. It is a very good road trip car - quiet, decent power, comfortable. I was pretty impressed. One of the new AWD ones with the stow and go would be a super versatile ride.
    Wow, they brought back AWD as an option.... AND it has stow-n-go? That's great combo!

    They don’t eat in the car and the carpets are dark so it actually cleans up well.

    Steering wheel is a little tough to keep but not bad if you keep up on it.

    Wife is thinking it over. Not sure if she wants the payment leap.

    That's a whole lot of white, but, if those are the colors she wants, that certainly looks like "the one." What did you say that you were paying for the current hauler? I thought it was >$500? If so, this seems like a reasonable leap given the jump in luxury. I agree that she doesn't "need" it, but "want" counts for something, too.

    Is that their base model of that Volvo family? It looks nice and the interior colors work for me (not that it matters!) but is that big slab of black across the passenger side of the dash just matte black plastic? It kind of looks like it from the pics but I can't tell.

    I still find it hard to believe that lease pricing can't be matched by GM on an Enclave or XT6.

    If my memory is correct, it's an electronic AWD system, so no driveshaft, and probably not a ton of torque, but enough to help get you going from a dead stop.

    Yes it’s a Momentum, but a T6 with some options which adds about 10K to base price. It’s actually equipped like my Inscription (top trim) S60.

    It’s got the nicer screens, NAV, pro-pilot assist, heated leather front and rear seats, pano and Harmon audio.

    Loaded enough for me. I would prefer a wood trim there like my car, but not a deal breaker.

    As for GM? Who knows, their leases flat out stink right now and if it were me this Volvo would be signed already. Wife can’t make up her mind.

    I doubt this unit will make the weekend.

    I cannot quickly find a lot of information about it out there, but Chrysler says that it can transfer 100% of power fore or aft, so that makes me think there must be a mechanical connection. Perhaps the hybrid version uses a separate electric system to allow for AWD in those.

    Sigh; decided to get buy quotes from Carvana and Vroom on the '13 XF. Not pretty, Carvana about 5% higher than Vroom. Maybe I'll make a Carmax appt. next.
    While I've had the car close to 7 years now, it is a '13, so an 8 y.o. car. Which still looks and drives great! Showing no signs of any issues, but then again, when the Keyless Vehicle Module went a few years ago, no signs; it just died (under warranty!). I'll probably be needing front brakes soon, should do a new battery...

    I expected not big numbers, but was surprised nonetheless.

But, my '09 Jag XK was a beauty, as was my '05 Acura TL, '88 Acura Integra, '84 Mitsubishi Mirage Turbo & '78 VW Scirocco (my first!). And, of course, the '92 Nissan Sentra SE-R and '95 Saab 900s I bought for the ex... Ok, I like a lot of the cars in my life.

    So I watched the WD Viggen episode. They did A LOT more work than they reported. At first glance I can see they replaced the clutch, refinished/replaced the wheels, and put on new tires. Probably an additional $2000 in parts, not including labor. Also, I’d love to know where they found a Viggen bumper for $587...suffice to say, they took a major loss on this car.

    Anyway, great car (I miss mine though it is not nearly as refined as the ZHP), but they don’t hold their value well at all. Bringing one back from the brink is a labor of love and not because it’ll net you any money...

    Beautiful vehicle but with young kids, even though no eating in car allowed, could be a bit tough. But if y'all really like it, why not. I know a lot of $ is being spent on your move and all, but get what's going to make her happy and don't look back. I know first hand what it's like to get into a vehicle and within a short period of time knowing it was big mistake! It's no problem if it's within a day or two and one can switch out of it, but if one is stuck, those three years can seem like an eternity! As I recall, by the one year mark, I had had enough and within a coupe of weeks, I fixed my mistake and never looked back.
    All I'm sayin' here is get what she really wants and for a bit, cut back somewhere else!

    We're on our fourth battery in the A3 and we've ad it 6 years on the 1st. Think the dealer gave her the last free one last month because they read the computer wrong. She's already at around 58K. But she did ask when checking out if they were sure it's going to be covered under warranty, and they said yes. She got lucky I guess because a week before when my battery died, I had to pay a nominal fee because the Interstate battery died in it's 23rd month. But, I was more than happy to pay the small fee to get a new replacement. Down here in South Florida, the intense heat does a number on the life of a battery, this is my fourth battery also in 6 years which is nuts! Or maybe German vehicles have so much electrical stuff that they go through batteries at a quicker rate than other brands.
    Whatever, when the battery is dead in anything, one must replace it or have a brick on their hands!

    Enterprise got in a large number of Toyota and Chevrolet vehicles up at PBI yesterday. We spent most of the day driving these new vehicles to different locations so they cold be rented out to customers. We had Chevrolet Spark's and Trax's while there were Toyota Corolla LE's, Camry SX's & Rav4's. All 2021 models so assuming even though we bought a lot of 2020's from Hertz, we're still buying increasing the fleet. Folks are always going to need rental vehicles and eventually when the pandemic is almost gone, travel, even business travel, will ramp up again. Maybe not as much as pre-Covid but, it'll still increase. What this last year has shown many is that a lot of work can be done remotely from home so thinking that business travel will probably stay with this new norm for some, but not all, business travel.

    That could just be the sales side not being able to calculate tax and DMV fees exactly right. I think OTD prices screw them up, since they have to back into a sales price. But if you have an OTD price agreed to in writing, And they honor it, no big deal.

    This will be my first deal through Docusign. They corrected the dollar amount.
    Just waiting on them to add to the "We Owe" sheet, which happens to be the 2nd to last sheet of 30 you have to sign..

    The "We Owe" sheet should state "Shipping to San Diego" since they didn't charge me a single buck on the retail sheet/contract. No mention of it; the "We Owe" sheet is appropriate for that.
    You are buying this off their website pictures or you had them do a facetime video walkaround?
    It's a BMW dealership, and they originally asked for the moon so that made me feel like they thought highly of the S4. Lots of pics, and yes, 2 short videos which is like a facetime. Also, only 32,xxx miles. Fully loaded prestige model, only knock on it is I'd be the 3rd owner.
    Congrats. Seems the prestige trim is fairly rare on the S4, so that’s nice. DSG I assume?

    I like that Estoril Blue M235i...if/when I’m ready to get back into a manual trannie for my fun car, the 2-series is definitely on the short list.

    The 228i I had was such a great all around value, but I would go for the extra power this next go around. M2 maybe, but for the way I drive, an M235i/240i should be way more than enough.

    I think Enterprise got smart in that I think they sold a lot of the cars they got from Hertz when the market was hot. I know we got a lot of Subarus in from there and for a while that’s a lot of what we were delivering to dealers. Then our lots got empty and we didn’t have enough cars to supply the offices.

    Now our lots are packed again to the point that when we come to work we have to park way in the back with the wrecks.

    I always liked the Passat. Seems like a very well put-together design inside and out.

    Agreed. Had one as a loaner once and even the wife was impressed with it.

    Did you get a good deal? Be sure to come back and let us know! Post a pic of your new purchase or lease!

    Though not as high tech as some of the current models offered, I do like the clear gauges, and easy to use controls. As I’ve had VWs in the past, no learning curve.
