I am replying to your post and some answers I've read through under it.
The key to what you bought is on the Monroney. That is the federally required window sticker. What does IT say about the model year???
Otherwise it will depend on not so much how recently it was built as when the dealership put it on its lot (sometimes they are one and the same) there are "flooring" costs". The bank owns those vehicles, not the dealerships and it costs the dealerships money to "floor" them.
AND the discounts are often from the factory and not the dealerships.
As somebody else said, try going back and re-negotiating the deal. Something to also always remember, there isn't a three day "cooling off period", as with some other products, either. When you sign those documents, it's yours. Several times after I've closed a deal and they
go through the litany of information they need to tell you and they tell you that this document supercedes anything the salespersons has told you, I will say "yeah, except for the three day cooling off period". You can just see their jaw drop. Then I say "just kidding".
