Hello everyone, I am a new poster here. I am very very interested in getting my first diesel car. I was looking at a pre-owned one for $18,000 with 11000 miles on it. It is located in Tampa, Florida. I have done so much research on the car over the past 3 months. So I moved from NJ to FL needing a fuel efficient car. Found this and did NADA and KBB values and it seems like it is in the 15100 range to 17,000. Went to dealer a few hours ago. Looked at the car and asked a lot of questions. A few large scratches on front passenger door. When I first looked at the car on December 15, 2015, the car fax stated the dealer got the car and listen it for sale. Well the sales rep I talked to said they had the car for 2 days and claimed it hasn't been on the lot. Lie 1. After a certain amount of days around 1-2 months, cars become ages inventory and it is costing the dealer more to keep the car than to sell it at a loss. Next, I asked if it needs diesel exhaust fluid to run, i already know the answer and he said no. Lie 2. Then I said oh whats this blue cap knowing what is is and about when to add...well there it was, i asked how much do i need to change it, "100,000 miles" absolutely not. Lie 3. Then I asked why the old owner sold it, and he said he wanted another car. But its only 11,000 so there could've been a major problem. Which makes me think thats why they had it listed, but claimed the car didn't get there a few days ago since it needed a major repair of some sort. I am 18 years old with a parent trying to buy a car. They thought I was not serious about this even thought I carefully inspected the car for 1 hour, test drove on highway and local roads for 20 minutes. I asked the lowest number they can give me. 17,600. "Best we can do" I said I have cash in hand, any discount there? "ok 17,000" Considering it is on it's third year and another Cruze diesel model came out with I believe a 1.6 engine, it is not worth almost a brand new honda civic. Budge was 15000 out the door not a cent more. Talked to the sales manager, he said what I am depreciating isn't what the "market is saying and the market agrees with my listing" He showed me his computer screen using dealertracker and it said their invoice price was 14400 and have an estimated profit # of $4500 and said I was already getting a deal...I don't think so. I would like all of your opinions of this because I need a good car for school and to drive back and forth from FL to NJ. I also don't want to get bent over, when a Jetta TDI is cheaper but I'd rather buy domestic.
