We have already mentioned the practice of appointing a greedy dealer. We also talked about how bad they look to the parent automaker and how some CEOs condemned the practice, but one Toyota dealer in Maryland has a bZ4X worth over $ 25,000. And they are not the only ones trying to milk consumers for voluntary gain.
The bZ4X is not the most needed new electric vehicle. It’s not the cheapest, doesn’t have the best range, and may not charge when it’s really cold outside. However, consumers across the country who want to buy a new car are struggling to find dealers with full lots. Corrections that appear to be unverifiable.

We recently found another Toyota dealer who asked for $ 10,000 to queue up for a new GR Corolla. Then a representative of Toyota told us:
“Toyota has set the retail price offered by the manufacturers (MSRP), ie the retail price offered by the manufacturer. As our dealers are independent business owners, the final price of the transaction will be the result of interaction between the client and the dealer. Our sales team has consulted with our regional offices to inquire about transaction prices and to consult with dealers if necessary.
If this seems like a weak answer to you, you are not alone and it is a consumer-oriented action that motivates some dealers to do something. Koons Toyota Westminster they do when they make the bZ4X list for $ 77,278. Keep in mind that the MSRP for bZ4X Limited without additional options is $ 47,625 for FWD and $ 48,780 for AWD. We understand that MSRP means “Manufacturer’s Retail Price”, but it’s just ridiculous.
Other A dealer in Portland will openly receive an additional $ 9,999 over each bZ4X. Although this is more attractive than the price of about $ 30,000, let’s see what we are talking about here.

bZ4X is not new to anyone but Toyota. If competitors offer better cars at the price requested by these dealers or at a lower price, we cannot imagine that anyone with common sense would be willing to pay for both of these designated cars.
If you hate adjustments like we do, it’s important to avoid paying through MSRP as much as possible. Many dealers are vying for your business, especially if the vehicle may not fly off the shelf, so don’t be afraid to go elsewhere to get the car you want.
