    Till now still waiting for my deposit refund. Wrote in to the sales manager on the refund and the customer monies mismanagement. Manager addressed the refund issue and said will see to it personally but nothing mentioned regarding the sales staff.

    Well, you're right. It's quite unlikely that a dishonest car salesman is a murderer and rapist at the same time.

    It seems sensible following strictly to a dictionary definition and then self justifying one's own action pertaining to having conscience. If that's the case, one who murders and rob is doing it with conscience because its his rights to covet after someone elses' riches. One who rapes would also be doing it with conscience because it is right to obtain pleasure for his little brother. The key lies in the "what is right or wrong in one's conduct", which is not for one individual to define but of a general, societal and legal acceptance.

    In you opinion, is there a possibility that the $1000 lapse is an honest mistake?

    other than all the advice given by forumners here, one still need luck to certain extend when buying a car. Sad though but its a fact. If most auto sales maintain a high level of professionalism and integrity, then all we have to worry is just what car to buy. Still, I believe there are just some black sheeps among whites. Just my luck that I had this sales staff servicing me.

    Couldn't agree more on your point about the risk sharing. Back then I was asked to sign another contract that has the price adjusted up by $5000 which I refused. I was thinking somewhere in the same line like...what if the COE were to dip in the next round? AD definitely would not return me the $5000. One other thing I have to clarify though, showroom car is not test drive car. It supposed to be just parked in the showroom for viewing only and not used for test drive. It gets touched and sat in no doubt but not taken out for test drive.

    Thanks for the advice, I will be more firmed in my future purchase. Then again, even in writing as per the GPS to be installed, I still get cheated in terms of the value when using it to top up COE bidding. Agreed on trust needs to be earned but when one goes all out to mislead, it will usually take quite a while before you discover it.

    I've agreed to take the showroom car because: 1. thinking that I was able to get it in the first bid as they are a big reputable authorised new car distributor and they have "ways" of getting it. 2. They have no more stock for the colour I wanted 3. I was to be given a $1000 rebate After denying me the $1000 rebate based on reason that I only took a minimum loan, I just let it be and thought that if they went all out to get me the COE, I'll just forget about it. I then asked in return, could they help install an in car cam for me since I am not being given the $1000 rebate and the in car cam is just $100~$200 plus, the sales staff then made arrangement to add in a integrated GPS system valued at $2000 (he claimed). Although this is not what I wanted but since he is being "generous", I relented. When I refused to top up $5000 for the COE bidding, I suggested why not just take back this GPS as I don't really need it anyway and use the $2000 to top up the bidding. This sales staff then replied in an uneasy tone that the "market" value of the GPS is at most $1000 and suggest removing other accessories from the car plus I further top up $500 more. I refused.

    nothing wrong with wanting to earn more money, just needed to do it with conscience.

    When I sign the sales contract, COE was already hovering above $71K and they only bidded $68k ~ $69k for the first 5 attempts and $70k plus for the last attempt. I think this multiple time COE bidding system is just a buffering strategy for reaping as much financial benefits as possible (by asking buyer to top up) and if that is not possible, then they just happily let the bidding fail. There is nothing the customer can do until fully expanded the number of COE attempts spelled out in the sales contract. Then again, I know there is also one time guaranteed COE....

    sad. Lose money in gambling is own fault, but if still be professional about selling car, can still get more business and earm more commission. But, can't be all gambling right, some are just greedy and want to make more doing less.

    Yeah, looks good on the outside, inside, all rotten. That's a sad state to live one's life but I guess no choice. Whatever bad things one does, it not only represents you only but your family, believes and religion.
