So your dealer says the Tires on Rims are free – but are they? Here at Loch Lomond Mitsubishi your free winter tires on rims are at no charge to you, in fact, we incur the cost here at the dealer level. So how do you know if they are really free?
INCLUDED IS A SERIOUS WORD.
As you can see above – INCLUDED is a word you won’t find. At Loch Lomond Mitsubishi are winter tires ARE in fact, FREE. As advertised! No installation costs, no mounting or balance charges, no TPMS cost – all of it IS in fact, free. When you hear or see the word INCLUDED – set your red flag to fly! If you see quotes like ‘free winter tires included’ or ‘snow tires included’ you actually aren’t really getting anything for free. INCLUDED means included into your payment, meaning there is a charge for these items and you will incur that cost….in your payment.
ASK TO SEE THE SCREEN
There is a screen on every dealer computer that shows who is in fact paying for each additional item on the vehicle. It will breakdown in COST and RETAIL, meaning cost to the dealership, and the retail charge to you. There is no problem with asking to see WHAT you will pay for FREE items.
CAREFUL OF PAYMENTS
When you see a payment, for example $79/week – ensure that your payment INCLUDES EVERYTHING. Some dealers will advertise $79/week and then you wonder when you leave why it is now $120/week taxes in. Here, at Loch Lomond Mitsubishi, we ONLY advertise payments that are ‘on the road’, meaning that the payment includes all taxes, fees etc. You leave with the same payment you walked in thinking you would pay.
It is important that you know what you are paying for, and what you actually getting for free. This is your hard earned money at stake!
