Mazda dealer is screwing the public

Can you believe this crap? Houston stealer Munday Mazda actually ripping off prospective buyers. Vehicle eventually made it to central Texas. They failed to remove this sticker and make it right.

Window Tint: $499, $250 or less anywhere
Nitrogen Tires: $400, You can buy a whole tank for that price. Really unnecessary since our atmosphere is already 78%
Wheel Locks: $395, $50 or less at Discount Tire or online

What's your take on this massive overcharge?


(Edit) Title should read: "Mazda dealer is screwing the public"

Yeah, horrible gouging. But your title suggests that all dealers are doing this. Should say "Mazda dealer", not "dealers".IMO

On the cx5, and all factory tinted glass, the tinted glass is a $500 up charge. If you wldont want to pay it, you can request a non-oem tinted glass and just have clear glass all the way around. The rest, yes, is ridiculous and if you argue with them, they usually will 0 that stuff out.

I told the kia dealership to let the nitrogen out and fill up with regular compressed air. Instead of doing that, they just zero'd that charge off my wife's car invoice.

The same goes for the wheel locks. Request them to remove them. The locks for my 93 protege works on my gj mazda 6. I paid $30 used for oem mazda locks which were listed for a miata, on ebay.

This is a common sales tactic. They list the car at the base price to get you to come in, then you see this stuff. If you complain, they take those off the price and say "hey, we already lowered the price $1500 for you, we can't go any lower!" It's a nice substitute for actual negotiating since they come out way ahead. And if you don't complain, they just made 1000% profit on those items!

My local Honda dealership installs a little device on the upper brake light that makes it blink on and off, claims it's a really great safety feature, and charges $800 for it. It's installed on every vehicle they sell, and I can always tell when a car was bought from there. I do think the feature is nice though, so I bought one for myself online for $20.

It's dishonest, but no more so than the lies that any salesman at any other dealership will tell you. And no more dishonest than selling you a "paint protection package" which is essentially an $800 insurance in where they will fix stone chips with a $2 blob of touch up paint. And pretty much every dealership tries to get you to buy that stuff. Basically, car salesmen are scum.

You see how much Honda Dealers were selling Honda Civic Type R Models at?!
I believe retail MSRP was $35K & these Dealers were selling up to $50K! Crazy overpriced!
