    Default Ranting about how I dislike dislike dislike buying new cars

    Oh don't get me wrong I'm totally excited and blessed to be able to buy a new car but my goodness... We walked out yesterday because we felt like we knew more about the vehicle than the salesman. Awkward silence in the car, he guy didn't ask anything about us... Nothing! I understand im just another sale but holy moly try a little bit. The guy was trying to give us a payment with financing before we even discussed the total price of the car. I wanted to ask if the real salesman called in sick and he was in financing. My apologizes for this rant. Needless to say no new car and they lost a sale... Play the game!!

    play the game! make them earn that sale. i get treated like that because i'm a woman, no doubt, and younger than most in charge of family finances. Play hardball. (I just bought a used (new to us) mazda crossover few months ago).

    UGH!!! I stopped going to car dealers years ago. i buy from places that sell certified used cars that are no more than 2 yrs old and have less that 20,000 miles. place like Carmax, which I think is national.

    Lol i know the feeling all to well. I'm a woman so when my husband and i go they talk to him little do they know i run the financials in our home. So when they want talk to me we go somewhere that's acknowledges me as well. I hate it when they know absolutely nothing about what they are selling. We shouldn't have to do their job for them. Lol.

    I stay away from Carmax around here as they price gouge. I go through the car buying process every 3 years as I always lease my wife's car. We are lucky in that one of our good friends is a VW salesman and when it is time we walk in tell him what we want and what we will pay and we are usually in and out in about an hour.
