Famous Car Salesman Arguments. Why they think its ok to screw you.

Alright, I’ve compiled a list of Car Salesman Arguments. These arguments are often presented when you are either buying a car, or talking badly about car salespeople on an internet site. Salespeople in this industry are instructed to be very vocal about how bad you’re hurting their pockets when you ask for a deal. Sounds Kinda Screwy? I think so too.

1. You wouldn’t haggle on the price of groceries!!!!

You are right, I wouldn’t. Because if I went to the manager and asked for $1 off of my gallon of milk, he would laugh at me and probably ask me to leave. So, with that said, how come I don’t get the same response when I ask for $1000 at a car dealership? Simple. I need milk. Lots of it. Lots of people need milk honestly. Not everyone needs to buy a car. Plus, a grocery store does not stand to make a profit margin like that of a car. When the salesman uses this tactic, say something witty like “If I knew the grocery store would cave in as easily as you will, I would haggle for my groceries too” That usually gets a rise out of them.

2. Car salesman will often tell you how bad it affects them when you ask for a discount, usually with something like “Would you work for free?”

No, thats silly. No one would work for free. The dealership pays you minimum wage (or more) and although its usually a draw that you pay back, you NEVER work for free. What they omit is that no matter what they sell the car for, there is always a FLAT FEE that they will get (typically $100) either way. So no, I would not work for free, and neither do you. When they use this tactic offer to call the labor board on their behalf, because you think its terrible that they’re not getting paid! This almost always shuts them up.

3. Car Salesmen often will say “Theres just not that much profit”

Well, I’m glad you mentioned that, lets talk about it. Who gets paid. Well, first the manufacturer makes their profit by selling the cars to the dealership in bulk. Next the shop makes money by preparing the car to be sold (which adds a “pack” to the car that YOU the consumer pay for). Next, the dealership usually “adds” several options onto the car like stupid pinstriping, or mudflaps and charges you 100% profit for. Then the dealership marks the car up to the “MSRP” which I refer to as Most Stupid Ridiculous Pricing. Depending on the make, there could be profits of $500 to $8000 (more in some cases) . So when someone tells you theres not enough profit in a car, you should Laugh Loudly.

4. Some will say “I’m an honest guy trying to make an honest living”

And its true, there are some genuinely good ol’ boys selling cars right now. Honest guys (who will honestly rob you blind) always willing to “make a deal”. Don’t believe the hype. Anyone who as any morals would not work in this industry. When the salesman claims he is an honest guy making an honest living, ask them to tell you the real amount they are giving you for your trade. This will usually end his “honesty kick”.

I hope this sheds a little light on the subject A Car Salesman’s Complaints and Arguments should always fall on deaf ears. They are only trying to get your money. Honestly.

Beat em’ up good,

    avons constaté que les gens qui suivent le même régime
    pesaient 10 % de plus en 2008 qu’en 1971, et 5 % de plus en pratiquant la même
    quantité d’activité physique », explique le Pr Jennifer Kuk, chercheuse à l’université York à Toronto
    et principale auteur de l’étude.

    You are by far, one of the biggest douchers I have ever met in my life. From a personal point of view, I have seen what goes into cars and where the dealership profits and where it doesn’t. Now a days, most salesman only make money if they sell a certain amount of cars. Which means that if they have to deal with a twat like you, they will most likely tell you to leave (I know I would). I have the honor to work for a company that truly does work transparently.

    I really hope you still check this and check for replies. We don’t even charge for any “packages”. The only one profiting from the deals that get made, is probably the Owner.

    I could go on and on about how wrong you are, on so many different aspects, but you can live in your ignorance and treat people like shit because they are salesman.

    I also think that it’s funny that you talk about morals but you are sitting here making peoples life hell and giving false advice.
