Cadillac XLR-V Series Forum Discussion, One wonders about dealer greed in Cadillac V-Series Forums; Came across this tucked in the owners manual. Hard to believe the market value adjustment.
I wonder if this has ...
The Corvette had this problem when the original ZR1s came out in the 90s and the C5 came out in 1997.
I still have a C4 Vette and every time I used to go to the dealer for warranty work they'd try to push me toward one of these $20K over sticker C5s. I just laughed and told them I don't even pay sticker price on a car, tthey assured me that someone would come along later to buy them. Seems a lot of people did as I remember a lot of heartburn for 97 Vette owners who didn't retain that $20K over sticker premium when they wanted to trade them in for newer models a few years later.
I can't fault them for trying (honestly) to get the most profit out of a vehicle, after all it all of us said, 'no' to the salesmen they wouldn't have these markups. I know I won't do it.
