I just leased a Mazda3 a few days ago from Autobarn Mazda in Evanston. The MSRP on this car was $18,500. They tried to screw me over with an outrageously expensive lease of $345 per month. I was astonished, because, originally I was looking at BMW 3 series and Mercedes Benz C- class for a little over $400 a month leased. I couldn't believe that for about $75 more, I could have leased a Mercedes Benz over a Mazda 3 series. Something was definitely wrong. I also did my homework before coming to Autobarn and new that the Mazda3 should have been leased for between $170 to $200 per month. Finally after negotiating for a while, we agreed on a car trade-in of $700 (I had a 93 pontiac firebird), $4,600 down (which includes taxes) and a lease price of $189 per month. Contracts were signed - done deal. The worst part comes next.... The car that I traded in for $700 wasn't starting, which I had told them at negotiations. I didn't have my car with me when I leased the car for that reason and was upfront with them about the condition of the car. I got my new car and Autobarn was to come by the next day to pick up my old car. They came by and towed the car. Two days after, someone from the dealership calls and tells me that I need to give them the money to fix the car I had traded in. The conversation got very heated and there was a lot of yelling going back and forth about this issue. I couldn't believe that they would call me back asking for more money for fixing my trade-in when they had come, towed and accepted the car after all the paperwork was signed. Honestly, I thought they were just taking my car and selling it's parts or junking it - It's a 14year old car and I was honest about it's condition. So, now, I am a very unhappy customer, because A)they tried to gouge me with a high monthly price (which I overlooked after I was able to get them down) and B) trying to get more money out of me after the contract was signed. All I have to say is that, in my opinion, they will try to cheat you anyway they can. Watch your back if you ever decide to do business with them. I would recommend never doing business with Autobarn. I think they are dishonest people and I don't think highly of their morals and values. They are out to get every penny out of your pocket that they can. I hate buying cars for this reason!!!! Is there anyone honest in the auto business? After my experience with Autobarn in Evanston, I'm not very sure.
