Avg. Dealer Rating:
"The old man who owns the place (John), is a nice enough sort, but he didn't really work with me on getting a deal done. Apparently he doesn't really need the business. I was a man looking to buy, and for every offer I made him he just said "no", instead of coming up with something and making me a counter offer. What happened to good old horse trading?!? This happened with other dealers too. I chalk it up to being just plain lazy. They want you to pay their inflated prices without a fight, and if you know better (like I do), then they just tell you no, and wait until that sucker does come along. (P.T. Barnum was right!) Hey, I'm not gonna begrudge 'em a profit on what they do, but I'm not gonna put his kids AND grandkids through college either. If you don't like my offers, well, I'm gonna take 'em down the road. There are literally HUNDREDS (if not thousands) of dealers in a 300 mile radius of Chicago. Bottom line is, I didn't create this car dealer system, I just do my homework on any vehicle I look at, look it over for a long time when I get there, try to take it for a l-o-n-g test drive, then see if they'll let me bring it to my mechanic. (If they don't, then I'm suspicious.) It's a crap shoot out there. Know what you want first, then go after it. I'm lucky I'm not under a time pressure bubble, so I can take my time looking around, and that is probably the most important aspect of buying. If the salesperson tells you he still has the car, but someone else is looking at it, I tell 'em, "if they plunk cash down in front of you before I get there, then sell the damn thing." I would. They're trying to create urgency. Hell, it just gives me more time to save up for a nicer truck than the beater POS I saw at Highland Park Truck & Auto Center. Nice enough old man that John was, though."
