Glad you posted that. I came across that report about 6-months ago and should have posted it for others to see. It's alway good to pass on info. like that, if we all educate ourselves before buying that will force them to be a little more honest.

Interesting reading Grinder! Sometimes when traveling the countryside outside of our area I stop in to other dealers to see how sales people do there jobs. Some are quite shocking with lots of B.S.(wrong info) and quick to sell and some without the BS just good facts, some are quiet and you'd have to all most force them to sell it to you but seem to know the equipment.. I always hate it when someone recognizes me in the dealership! It's tough as every manufacturer wants the highest market share and attempt to force the dealer to get there's. There are market reports that tell them who's who with market share.

I don't know about other states, but in Iowa auto dealers cannot be open on Sunday, so that's when a lot of folks go car shopping, including me. Usually the lots are open so you can wander around, take your time and be left alone. I've actually had salesmen run along side of the car shouting into the window for me to stop and talk to him on a week day, so I just don't stop by a dealership unless I'm there to buy something. Those folks have to make a living too, but I can't imagine a more high pressure job that some of the big time dealers must put on their sales people. Anymore if I don't know the owner of the dealership on a first name basis I just don't stop. Frank.

Just finished the whole series, I was hooked. I worked for a Chevy dealer who was this high-pressure type. Sales manager was even named Dave (Carnival Dave to be exact!) Every day I went home and felt slimy-er than the last. I got fired, was the best thing that ever happened to me.
