If I have a payoff balance on my current loan. but, I get an agreement for trade in value that Equals that payoff, WHY do they want to roll in my Old loan , on top of the new loan???

Wednesday February 16, 2011 12:05 Jim
12:06
Herb Chambers:

The only need we would have for rolling it in would be if there was a negative balance …. otherwise you should be all set!

Herb Chambers:

being a dealer i do not have access to what the manufacturers plan to do. Sometimes we are the last to find out. There are so many outstanding choices it doesn’t seem necessary to have another manufacturer. Those that have gone away have gone away for a reason…they were losing their popularity

Herb Chambers:

with President’s Day weekend coming up it will be an ideal time to buy a car. Especially since the first of the year the auto industry in the NE market has been terrible…lots of snow and few buyers. Dealers are anxious and factories are even more anxious. we are loaded with inventory so you should be able to get the model, color and equipment at the right price at any of our 4 Honda dealerships.

I am currently driving the Bentley, but one of the luxuries of have the number of dealerships that i do I have the ability to change my car weekly. My favorite has always been Mercedes-Benz.

Please allow a follow up, so I’m clear: payoff $4000, get an agreed $4000 trade-in value, that’s ZERO. So, Nothing should be ADDED to new loan??? Thanks for your help.

Jay Leno stopped by my home in CT to see the McLaren F1 that I have. He was playing at the casino and called because he was interested in getting one himself. Now I see him each year out at Pebble Beach. As a side note, Jay used to work washing cars at one of my dealerships before I purchased it.

Long ago, I was at APECO on Cambridge where you were a legend. I knew you had done well but when I tuned into the History channel recently and saw the bit about you buying back your Ferrari Daytona Spyder, I really had a good chuckle. You see, your car was two serial numbers away from my own Spyder (14993) and I thought it was amusing that I had two things in common with you–not having seen or talked to you in 40 years!

[Comment From GuestGuest: ]

I bought a Honda CRV from your dealership in Burlington, MA this past summer. It was not a certified vehicle, but I was assured that it had been checked by the mechanics at the dealership before it was offered for sale. I purchased the car and brought it to my mechanic the same day. My mechanic found that it needed $1000 – $1500 worth of repairs. I returned the car the next day because the salesman said that I could return the car in 2-3 days no questions asked. The business manager told me the dealership does not return the sales tax, which in this case was $750. It seems deceptive not to tell people this up front. Instead telling them they can return the car within 3 days, no questions asked. It also seems deceptive to sell cars with known problems.

Wednesday February 16, 2011 12:40 Guest
12:42
Herb Chambers:

we would not knowingly sell any car with mechanical problems. This is why we offer the program that we do with the 3-day money back guarantee which includes sales tax. I believe this is unique in the industry. Further to that you have a total of 30-days to exchange the car for a different one. The refund should include sales tax. This we think goes a long way to protect the consumer.

Hi Herb, what is your opinion on American cars vs the imports (mainly the Japanese and lately the Korean manufacturers)..Are they on the same level (or perhaps even surpass) those competitors, in terms of quality and innovations? Thanks for your thoughts.

Wednesday February 16, 2011 12:44 ww
12:46
Herb Chambers:

going back several years there was a substantial difference between American cars and European, Japanese and Korean vehicles. The great news is the Americans have closed the gap and now have very competitive products today and in many cases with price advantage. They should be on your President’s Day shopping list.

Hi Herb, my wife and I just purchased a Honda Odyssey from your Boston location. We had the best car buying experience one could ask for. So many dealerships make buying a car, like a trip to the dentist for a root canal. Great to see your folks over Commonwealth Ave doing such a fine job.

Hi Herb, With your industry influence have you ever considered revamping the buying experience? It is often complicated, time consuming and I think most would agree negotiating is often times painful for both sides. There must be an opportunity to reinvent the entire process. Your thoughts?

Wednesday February 16, 2011 12:53 Mike F
12:56
Herb Chambers:

I agree with you. The most difficult part of the automobile industry is the negotiation process. Saturn did a great job and unfortunately did not have the product to go on in business with the negotiation free process. I’m an advocate to eliminate negotiation and we have done that by instituting Smart Pricing in all of our dealerships covering pre-owned vehicles. We know our pre-owned vehicles are priced right and come with a 100% 3-day money back guarantee and 30-day exchange. Our client love it!

Herb, potentially a stupid question but…I’ve been looking at the F-350’s for several years now, looking for the “right time” to buy. But despite all the problems with the auto industry recently, F350s remain available only at a real premium. I’d think that given the smaller need for the truck, they’d be some deals out there. What am I missing? Thanks.

It is surprising to me that you can’t find a deal because we have two Ford dealerships, one in Westboro and one in Braintree, and they are very eager to sell them. I believe, at the moment, we have 17 available.
