I mean this is my guess but it looks like this car got too much attention and they decided to get as much money outta the sale as possible.......fair enough but fuck man you guys lost all your respect because of how you run your business and how obvious it is that you've gotta drain every penny outta the sale.


    Now this whole things not gonna make a difference to me since I am pretty satisfied with what I drive but the way business is handled is extremely disappointing.... today, you've lost another customer

    Its hard to properly appraise a car like that, if he wants to raise his price, that's his prerogative. Don't be a baby.

    i dont know why people keep thinking deerfoot suzuki is different than every other used car dealership.

    a used car dealership is a used car dealership.

    I really don't see the problem here. If they think they can get more for the car why wouldn't they raise the price? If you don't like it then don't buy it. It would be different if you were in actual negotiations with them and they suddenly raise the price on you. Or if they purposely advertised at $14995 and when you get to the dealership it's suddenly $16995.

    Actually, the law dictates for ANY retail business that if you advertise for a price, you must sell at that price. Otherwise, it's akin to a bait and switch practice - which (if this is considered a "retail" business) would be punishable by a hefty fine.

    IF the dealership did not advertise this price anywhere, then it is totally their perogative to re-price as they see fit.

    Was actually going to head to SDS this weekend, was looking at SUVs for the lady. Totally slipped my mind, hit up some of the dealers in/around the Calgary Automall.

    I guess SDS is out. I'll stick with buying new for this one.

    beyond is like the paparazzi,
    and Norman is like Brittany spears.

    Of course if you look over everything he does with a fine tooth comb you are going to find something to make a thread about. Even tho lots of other dealerships / sales people do the same thing daily (even tho it is somewhat shady). This website has proved the whole love them when they are up, kick them when they are down saying. No ones work history is going to be perfect, yet alone a used car salesman.

    The only difference is the paparazzi gets millions of dollars for the newest hottest Brittany news, you just get to feel like a big man trashing on what someone has done (even tho you don't know the circumstances). What I am trying to say is everyone makes mistakes, the only different is our mistakes aren't posted over the Internet for everyone to see.

    Norman, If you don't have haters in life, you are doing something wrong.

    Um.

    Hating on SDS, and hating on Norman are two different things, and I hope people can understand that on both sides of the argument.

    I've had great experiences with salespeople, but a terrible experience with their respective dealerships. I've also had great experiences with dealerships, despite negative experiences with the respective sales rep.

    Having said that, I'm more likely to give a dealership a chance despite a poor review of a sales rep. But if I hear that a dealership treats their customers/potential customers poorly, you could be the best salesperson in the world and you won't get my business because you're just a sales rep, and the dealership will largely affect my buying experience, and what ability you have to make it better.

    To put it into another perspective: one player does not make a team. Wayne Gretzky never won a Stanley Cup outside of the Oilers franchise. Norman's probably a pretty stand-up guy, but the dealership does not seem to follow his example.

    Well imagine if instead of writing that letter to the editor, she just posts on a car forum for car enthusiasts. That's Kritafo.

    Well, norman has always been very good at responding to my questions quickly and with the right information (which any salesperson worth his salt should be capable of).

    This kind of stuff would seriously make me question doing business with SDS in the future though, and I think others would agree with me.

    Well my car was written off just before christmas even made a thread about it. Decided to give Norman a call to see what he had and if you could get his hands on a RSX Type-s. Told me he would check and never got back to me. He told me that day he would call or send me a pm on beyond and nothing. I needed a car within the week (called thursday or friday needed a car same time the following week) and I dont appreciate not getting called back on a simple request of just checking inventory. I was getting a check cut and would of had money in hand by early the next week. Luckily I found a car else where.
