I'm interested in buying a new car and have done a test drive.
Due to Covid-19 I wasn't able to lower car price much in store but found a website called Union shopper.
A broker through the website asked me get a quote from stores first then get back to him. So I told him the price I was offered in store and he got back to me this morning.
I don't know whether this is how it works but what he told me was, even before he reveals the price for a car I'm interested I need to pay a $1,000 deposit, then he will contact dealers to find who can offer the lowest price. Then I need to sign a contract immediately to take the offer. If I change my mind i will lose the deposit.
It sounds very suspicious to pay a deposit even when I don't know the price I will pay. Has any of you purchased a car via union shopper or any goy any advice for me please?
In store yesterday I was offered $34k including choosing a colour for Hyundai i30 elite 2022 instead of paying $34,483. Does it like a reasonable price? The seller told me that I could pick up the car in 1 to 2 weeks whereas the broker could not guarantee until he contacts sellers
