2013 St Price Quote

Not sure if this is in the right location, so if not, mods feel free to move it. It seemed to make sense, but you never know..

So I did one of those "free email price quotes" where you fill out some personal information and then the dealer give you a quote for the car in question. When I got a response and a price, I was taken back. The internet sales consulatant for the dealer offer me a price $12,800 for a used 2013 ST with my 09 SE as trade in. Both the vin# and stock# match from where I found the car listed.

Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?

I have to doubt that since they were barely offering 14k for a high level 2012 in part exchange for a 2013 ST nearly 6 months ago when last I looked.

How would a car that's 1 model year older be worth more than that?

I just don't see it possible being that it's at least 10 grand off the MSRP. Anyways, I'll be calling the dealer to verify if this is a legit quote or not, and then I'll be going from there.

The quote is probably including your trade. They gave me 7500 for my '08 SES, so my 24k '13 SE would have been 11.8 after incentives and discounts in this type of "quote".

I agree with Slo86GT; they mean $12,800 PLUS your car.

Doesn't seem like quite the bad deal. I called yesterday and the dealer I called said it was on their sister lot, which they put me through to, and I got voicemail. Left a message, I'll call again today. I still owe a little on my 09, but that's not too big a deal for me. As long as the car fax is clean, I'll take a ride to the dealership tomorrow.
