Re: 2013 Purchasing Help

That's not a demo, that's a used vehicle. Will you be the second owner? You should be able to find a much better deal.

Re: Has anyone gotten IDL bonus cash?

You can reverse this by estimating $30 per $1000 so a zero down equivalent of this deal would be $350/mo plus fees and taxes. They just throw the cap cost reduction in to be able to advertise the...
