So...I went to the dealer last night and I test drove the XE 5 spd. It actually is much better than I thought. I was thinking since its a 4 cyl it wont be as smooth or what not, but...it was still really nice. Anyway, so we sat down and the guy gives me a price for 15,500...that's the bare bone stock with no power options. I've read that some of you guys have gotten the xe with pwr options for that price. So I assumed that since this is going to be the base, base model (they didnt have it in stock by the way), a good price would be 14,500. After he gave me the 15,500 number and I didnt like it he asked me to write down the price I want. So...I wrote down 13,500 which I knew wasnt gonna happen. I was waiting for him to come to 14,500. Anyway....he paced around, asked his manager...etc etc...and he said I cant do that. So I said...Ok and I got up and left. Now....do you guys think 14,500 is a fair price for that model? And maybe since they didnt have it in stock (they did in the next state), he didnt push to close the deal...? Anywayy....so yeah thats the story. I have a feeling he'll call back because he kept the price offer sheet, which he offered to me but when i was taking it, he said "Maybe we can use this later". so yeah...thats my story....thanks for whoever reads it!
