Reverse sticker shock

“Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price,” as seen on new-car Monroney stickers, has apparently been downgraded from a suggestion to a convenient fiction. Get a load of this:

A friend was looking at the M45 Infiniti last week 10/27, sticker $52K+, dealer says lets start at 42K, gives her max on trade-in 16K on 2004 Infiniti(shocked), financing is 0.9% for 60 months but then dealer mentions we now have cash pricing available!? If you pay cash, we will take up to another 8K off financing price. You have 5 days until the end of the month to decide. ($52-10-16-8 = $18K).

Geez. Maybe I should go look at that year-old G35 again.
