Looking for a car
Went to 4 different dealerships. I thought these guys would be better sales people. Really disappointed in their ability to close the sale.

They quit sucking your dick for a sale years ago, for that you gotta find a glory hole.

Negotiate it all through the online sales department.

If you would have bought one, the sale would’ve been closed.

I was expecting these guys to be roothless but they didnt even know what they had on the lot. They are hiring high schoolers now.

And yet you couldn't get the deal you wanted on a vehicle.

Sound like maybe you don't know how to purchase a car.

A lot of them didnt have something I wanted. They let me walk away without looking on the computer.

They probably have been burned by people wasting their time with pie in the sky expectations. If you'd just told them what you wanted, they might have tried to help.

All too often people come into a dealership acting like they're playing, Texas Hold'em. "I need a car." What kind of car. "I don't know. You tell me."

re: Looking for a car
I walk in, tell them the car I want and ask for the best price they can give me. I’ll do this around 3 times around with 3 dealerships telling them the offer I got from the one before until none are willing to beat it for the sale. It works

You're going to have be more specific. That's like telling a baker you want bread. What kind of bread? Baked bread. What kind of baked bread? Sliced.

Just tell the people exactly what you want and what you're willing to pay for it. If they can't find something in your price range, then that's just too bad.

Nationally, customers average 1.2 dealership visits before they purchase a vehicle. It's possible you do not know how to buy a car...

If you did that to me in a flooring store I would call them myself on my sell phone and see if I can get the same deal. If not I call bull shite and tell them this is the best I can do.

Show me what youve got and we'll do business.

It’s really not his fault that the national average is brought down by the person with a 500 credit score who walks in to the first dealership and wants that sports car of their dreams even though they don’t make enough to even cover the note
