I bought my RAV4 with a cheque for more than $36,000. The dealer suggested I call the bank to tell them I'd written a large cheque. Bank said they didn't care. Wasn't their money I was spending.

I'm totally amazed - just a plain old cheque? not certified? money order? bank draft?


I've been laughed at for asking in the past!

Was a plain old cheque for my line of credit. Don't know if that makes a difference.
Told my wife I was going up to Safeway for groceries. Came home and told her I'd bought a RAV4.

SO that's why you got the Escape B model, with a full bathroom.!?

Good one Glenn. I once told my wife I was going to only go "look" at a new truck. She was a bit ticked, not of the new truck I brought home but that I'd left her car there and we had to go get it the next day.

LOL...well as long as you had some left in the account for paying rent in the doghouse

People buy cars at local dealers with a personal check and they don't put a contract in place as a fallback. I asked about this one time and the finance guy said they don't have any problem with checks for tens of thousands; it's the $500 checks that bounce. Put that way, I could see his point.

Dealers like to sell cars. Additional to my sparkling personality, we have good credit history, stable address and all those good things, so I expect those factor in a little bit too.

Those also factor in to how much you pay for insurance.
