That is often true. The NE Ohio dealer I mentioned above however says "everyone qualifies for this price, no exceptions".

I'm working with a car ordering service called cartelligent. You pay them $300-$500 and in exchange you don't have to step foot in a dealership. They find you the best price, physically go get the car, prep all the paperwork, etc. They also find you the best deal for your trade-in, which is rarely from the same dealer where you buy your car. I haven't finalized my order yet, but so far working with them has been great.

I contrast working with Cartelligent versus my experience trying to buy a Pacifica last fall from a Chrysler dealership in the Bay Area. It was such an awful, slimeball experience that I walked out. I decided I had to order from cartelligent because I loved the Pacifica but physically couldn't bring myself to going into that dealership again.

Which dealership in the Bay Area was it? Would be good to know which dealer to avoid.

Stevens Creek Chrysler. The first salesperson was actually fine, but then I got handed off to a different salesperson for the price negotiation.

He did the usual talk with manager routine, then comes back with "best I can do is 45k". I politely mentioned to him that this car is on their website for 41k. Said that price is crazy, no way he can do 41k, must have been a typo. At that point I asked for the manager because this guy was obviously wasting my time. Manager acts like he can do me a big favor and sell the car for 41k. Then I show him the truecar from his dealership saying 37k. He laughs and says that price is crazy, no way he can do 37k. At that point I left.

This was back in mid-November and they still haven't sold the car:

I was just going by the VIN numbers. My manufacture date is 9/16 so just looked at all the sequence numbers higher than mine.
I'm not saying they aren't slimeball car salesmen because for the most part they are. I'm just saying that they stay pretty much with their advertised price.
They discounted a truck for me pretty heavily as well but I ended up buying it out of state

Look at the number under S.L. near the barcode in the lower left. This is a date. I don't know what it actually means but it's about 1 to 2 weeks after the build date. E.g. my build date is 11/28 and the number under S.L. is 1208.

Did they really try to sell you the car at over $3K over MSRP?
Sometimes, you wonder how these dealers can make money. Are there a lot of suckers in the world? In this case, no since they haven't sold it yet.
Was The Truecar price the actual offer on the same car? If they don't honor it couldn't you report it to TrueCar?

I had a similar experience with Orange Coast Chrysler. They wouldn't budge on the price until I pointed out they offer it on Truecar for less. Then he offered me the TrueCar price. It wasn't a bad deal but it didn't make sense to me since if I did go through TrueCar, I think they need to pay a finder's fee of some sort. Then he tried the old dealer cliche "It's below my cost..."
