Couple Buys 2017 Infiniti QX30 For $17,790 After Calling Dealer Out On Facebook Ad
Looks like Infiniti Corporate are willing to take a financial hit to do what's right.
A lot of online car ads can be a little deceiving and in some cases straight lies. It appears this might be the case for one ad that aired on Facebook by Infiniti of Louisville. According to Sherri Cooper, she saw an ad for a 2017 Infiniti QX30 with a $35,000 msrp on sale for $17,790. After showing her husband, Chris Cooper, the couple called the sales manager at Infiniti of Louisville to see if they could turn this ad into a reality.
To no one's surprise, Infiniti of Louisville said they would not honor the ad. The Infiniti Sales Manager then took it upon herself and contacted Infiniti corporate. Infiniti instructed to accept the deal and corporate would pay the dealership the difference. Infiniti Corporate then called the Coopers and told them to take the deal. Infiniti corporate honored the ad as they felt their "integrity" and "reputation" are more important than the money.
It is unclear what exactly caused the ad to advertise a 2017 Infiniti QX30 for $17,790 but it definitely worked out in the Cooper's favor.
