Alright before we take this journey there are a few things I need to clear up. I used to be a Car Salesman. I know the ins and outs of the business. I know all the terms. I know all the tricks. I know how bad a salesman can screw you.
I screwed plenty of people. I made a lot of money doing it. And to be honest I’ve always felt bad about it. I’ve decided to dedicate my time to helping people buy cars. To help people get a good deal. If only by bringing to light certain practices that dealerships employ to take every one of your hard earned dollars.
Now, Before you “Client Advisors” and “New Car Consultatns” flood me with hate mail, and the whole “you’re taking food out of my mouth” argument, let me tell you a few things.
1. I was successful. I’m not mad because I failed. I’m mad because I don’t like screwing hard working people, and also I don’t like working 70 hours a week for very little money.
2. I’m not taking food from your mouth. The dealership pays you minimum wage I’m sure. You can eat off that.
3. I’m PUTTING food into someone else’s mouth, who probably needs it way more than you.
4. If you’re in a Car Sales position, you are indeed in a position of uncertainty. You can never guess who will steal half of your sale, you can never guess how many ups you’ll get. And you certainly can’t guess how much money the double taxing U.S. Government will take from your commission.
I’m excited about this venture, because not only is it something I am passionate about. Its helpful. And I want to provide REAL VALUE to my readers. So, off to work I go! Please feel free to comment on my posts, as I’m always up for a heated or helpful discussion.
