Car Dealer CSI Ratings
"C.S.I." stands for "Customer Satisfaction Index" is a system the Automakers have in place to monitor the consumers buying experience. It is a survey that is either conducted by phone or mailed to the consumer, after their purchase is registered with the Automaker. CSI surveys create headaches for dealers, that's only because your opinion is very important to their parent manufacturers. Your responses are meaningful to your salesman and the dealership. Most dealerships won't admit it, but you can use the importance of these surveys to your advantage. Many car buyers have reported to us, that it could mean negotiating a few hundred dollars discount from the final sale price, when they promised a good evaluation on the survey.
The secret profit of Holdback was introduced in the 1960's, as a way to ensure that dealers would have enough money to pay taxes. No dealer wants to discuss 'holdback'. It's money the dealer sends to the Automaker when he pays the orginal invoice, but the cash eventually comes back to him. The manufacturer holds back a fraction of the price of all cars a dealership sells (typically 2 to 3 percent of either the invoice price or the manufacturer's suggested retail price) then it credits it back to the dealer after vehicles are sold, usually on a quarterly basis. On a vehicle that stickers for say $30,000 the "holdback" could be as much as $700 to $800!
Consumer & Hidden Dealer Incentives
Consumer Incentives include up to $7,000 in cash back offers, Manufacturer Subsidized Leases, 0% financing deals, Secret reduced prices due Overstocked inventory. Hidden dealer incentives are factory-to-dealer cash incentives that reduce the dealer's true cost, so you can potentially buy the vehicle below invoice price. The Automaker gives the dealers a cash payment for every vehicle sold within a given time period. Automakers don't run the same incentives everywhere, because they gear them to the needs of each market. These hidden dealer incentives are offered on a regional basis to generate sales on specific models.
