Purchasing a new car can definitely be an exciting experience. There’s just something about being behind the wheel of something that’s fresh to you and getting rolling in a new car that can be an exhilarating experience, especially if you’re into that kind of thing. However, at times, you need to keep your eyes on the prize because, if a hungry car dealer sees that excitement, there’s a very good chance that they could take that situation and flip it on its head, taking advantage of you and sneaking some money out of your pocket while you’re not looking as you’re probably completely engrossed in the new car that you’re about to obtain.

This time, we check in and get a little bit of a storytime situation from the former owner of a Subaru WRX. Not only does he tell us about the horror story that he went through in order to get behind the wheel of this lease that he ended up buying but also, we get filled in with a little bit of helpful information that could help you the next time that you want to go to bat with a car dealer. If you keep your eye on some of these factors, it could end up saving you hundreds of dollars if not more. In the grand scheme of things, the dealer might figure that these tidbits, like fees that a dealer might be able to shuffle to their advantage and stretch out over the term of the loan, might be aspects that you won’t really notice, however, it all adds up and it’s all for absolutely nothing.

Follow along with the story below as this WRX owner ends up heading into the dealership and really standing up for himself, sticking it to the people behind these sleazy tactics who decided that they wanted to shuffle in a couple hundred dollars in fees here and there that this excited Subaru enthusiast didn’t necessarily agree to but could have easily been glossed over.

Thankfully, he read all the fine print because otherwise, he could have gone home much lighter in the wallet. Now, this might seem like something that’s just a once-in-a-while kind of occurrence, however, from what we’ve heard, it might be something that you probably want to pay attention to because apparently, it’s not all that uncommon after all.
