HOMEWORK is A Must: The dealership is a nice one - quite big and well done, but the way of doing business is very traditional - "Ripping of the customer". They try to keep a huge margin on trade-in and will try to sell you their in-stock vehicle first, thereby discouraging a factory order. I didn't do my homework and I got at-least $4000 less for my trade. After I signed the deal, I got an email from a different dealer about my trade-in value and I forwarded it to my sales person @ brampton... however, that was a little too late. Again: the fault is mine, I should have been more diligent. I knew the sales man for a while and I trusted him, though, I guess, it is more in the hands of the used car dept to give a fair value and not much in the hands of the sales man. The sales man did his best to convince me to take a in-stock car and I paid few grands extra for the packages which I was not much interested in. Towards the end of the deal, the finance manager told me that I should take the "Lease wear n tear protection" because Mercedes usually finds quite a few problems with their cars during lease end, and I will definitely not get back my security deposit and moreover I might need to pay more. I got scared and bought that as well.
At the end, I probably ended up with a loss/over payment of around $7000 - $8000, which I could have avoided if I hadn't trust the sales man and had done my homework before visiting THIS dealership.
