i have no confidence that any auction for a spot for a car on ebay has been legit...

i read the second (current) auction details and nowhere does it say at what price you are getting the car. so theoretically you could pay this guy $25k and have to pay the dealer msrp plus another $25k or whatever...who knows?? how many dealers have had wait lists at msrp and then changed their minds.....

i find these shenanigans pretty amusing...

Yes, you are right. I've got a feeling that unscrupulous persons are just testing the proverbial waters to see what the market will bear. I was doing business with a dealer in a nearby city and after accepting terms to be number #3 on their wait list he called me back and told me I would have to pay $5000. over MSRP for the privilage. I cancelled my deposit/order and took my business elswhere. I have since secured the number #4 slot at another dealer close by. I also got everything in writing and that the vehicle would be delivered to me at MSRP.

It's not a scam, I actually posted the auction in question. However, everyone of course thinks they're getting the whole car for $20k, so you never get validated bids. If anyone is seriously interested in a top spot (and not for a ridiculous $40k), let me know.

Be curious to know which dealer you are working with. You can email me offline if you want ([email protected]).
