Why would believe a sales person and not do your own research? Before i bought my GC i new more than any sales manager knew about my Overland. Most know very little about cars they are selling.

Re: Mind blown!!!

I agree with rockrash....I did quite a bit of research as well and knew more about the vehicle then the sales people at both of the dealerships that I was working. One guy was pretty much clue less.

Re: Mind blown!!!

I've run into sales guys who didn't know their product and I agree that it doesn't make sense. But both my Ford and Chrysler salesmen are "car guys".

I met the Ford guy while I was having service done on my Expedition and started looking at a Mustang just for fun. He walked over and we started talking. I told him right away that I was just here for service and he said "no problem", and we talked at length about Mustangs and such. He was older than I and had had like 12 or so in his life time. We had a great conversation and I learned a few things. Six months later when I went back to shop for my wife's new car I asked for him, and he knew quite a bit about the Lincoln that she was interested in.

While shopping for my wife's car at the Chrysler dealer I happened upon another older gentleman and he knew his cars as well. I told him that I had always owned Fords but don't like the current crop of FWDs and he put me in a 300 sedan. I was more impressed with that car then any that I had looked at. Six months later when I went back for my Jeep I called on him.

The Audi salesman that I visited when shopping for my wife's car was also very knowledgeable. They send them over to Germany to learn to drive on ice. He had me sit in the passenger seat while he took the car through its paces- in the rain. I would never have driven that fast on a test drive.

Infiniti- same thing. The guy knew everything about the car. And everything about the competition.

Yes, being lied to is a terrible feeling. But I don't think any of us will live long enough to find many auto salespeople who are knowledgable about their products. That's why so many of us have the frequent experience of knowing far more about the autos we intend to buy than the salespeople from whom we're trying to buy them.

Sorry I'm late commenting on this, but I've been in the hospital.
