Back in the summer of 2016 I was pre-approved for $10,000 and was interested in a 2014 Chev Malibu originally priced at 9,900 with 140ish kms. This price was at least $1000 to high in comparison to other dealerships, and was told that they would not budge more than a couple hundred. I called back a month later and the vehicle was still on the lot and he informed me that they would be willing to settle on this price of 8,900. When I was getting ready to come in to sign papers I was told the total with tax and "admin fees" would be 9,600(ish) which included the admin fees of $350. I asked what this fee is for and was told that it covers the finance check, legal forms, lot fee, and ads. I explained to the salesman that this fee is up to each dealership and that some do not charge, as it is not a requirement. I informed the salesman that I would not be willing to pay this large amount based on the fact that they do not have to charge this; and that I had only spent 10 minutes with this company and had been the one who sought them out. I asked that the admin fee be waived or the amount of the Malibu be lowered $350, and I was told by the salesman that he is cancelling our transaction all together. Be weary of what your are paying for. I want to support local, but this is not good business. You are only obliged to pay taxes, and admin fees does not fall in this category.
