...Or someone at the dealer swapped parts around. I've personally had this happen twice. Once with a set of wheels and once with a radio when the dealers had the exact vehicle I was looking for except for one thing. I paid the difference for these items, but I suspect the buyer of the other vehicle ended up paying for more than what they got. You know the dealer didn't discount the other cars for their downgrades! I don't know if it is specifically illegal, but it's almost certainly not proper.
Agreed. When I was selling for a Honda dealership, a guy wanted to buy a new (at that time) 2007 CR-V. He was trading a 2004 model. The EX and EX-L had the exact same wheel design, but the EX came with Continental tires and the EX-L had Bridgestones. The guy wanted the EX-L, but would NOT take it if the Bridgestones were on it. Apparently he had the same type on his 2004 and had nothing but problems with it. So, the sales manager made a deal with the guy and swapped the EX's wheels and Continental tires onto the EX-L and vice-versa. That specific EX sold just a week later. In that case, it's probably not good practice since the Bridgestones were considered OEM for the EX-L. Just goes to show that you need to know the vehicle you're purchasing.
