    “Nope, not gonna pay the 1500 extra, I want my money back. All of it since you’re renegotiating the terms after the deal is done.”

    If you have signed saying you would pay x amount of dollars for said truck then I would I would voice my opinion. Far as I am concerned y'all have made a deal and they are breaking the terms of that deal.

    I’d threaten to but a Freightliner.
    You think they’d lose $150k over 1500?
    Idle threat.

    Yeh i have a signed contract .i was thinking just saying fku to peterbilt and make an order with kenworth. It is unprofessional and cheap to even ask for 1500 when m making a purchase of 185 k .

    If Pete’s doing it kw isn’t far behind….

    the contract means nothing to a multi National company… what are you gonna do sue them…. They’ll sell the truck to someone else anyways
