Dumb if you ask me...

I stopped by the local ford dealership the other day and was looking foward to maybe taking a test drive in one of the new mustangs. Preferably a GT since I had already driven a V6 a while back but I thought it would be cool to see the differance between past years and the new ones and to see if it would really make me want to look into getting one later on. So I'm walking around the dealership and this guy comes out and does the whole salesman thing, how you doin? you a mustang guy? looking to buy today? etc, etc, etc. So I told him that I was just looking around and was looking to take one for a test drive to see how they are now. He asked if I was gonna buy today and I told him that I am working on my car now but when I'm done I was looking to possible trade it in for a GT possibly or a 6 if I cant afford the GT. He asked what I was doing to it and I told him that I had some suspension stuff and some bodywork that I was gonna finish up before paint. It was funny how his attitude changed when I told him I had some bodywork to do still and stuff. Kinda looked at me like great this guy has some pos that he is gonna trade in for this car??? ha! He asked what year it was and I told him a 1998 and then he was like aww that cars is like 8 years old, thats an old car, probably beat up and a lot of miles on it, probably worth nothing on a trade in. I was thinking to myself, is it good to insult someones ride if you dont know the person or they may possibly be buying a car from you in the near future??? So I asked him if it was possible to take a car out for a test drive and he looked at me and said, well if your not going to be buying today we dont let people just take the cars out for drives, you have to be possibly buying today and then you can take a car out. I was like what??? Been to nissan, dodge, toyota, jeep and chevy and they let me take a car out to see how it is whether I was going to be buying that day or not. That guy was an a**. Definitly not gonna go there to get a car, or if I do hope he comes up to me and I can just tell him I aint doing business with him. Great job at getting someone to really want to get the car...

You should call his boss, and tell him you were considering buying a car from them, but that one saleman changed your mind.

I agree. That was definitely not professional of him at all.

Yea tell him where to stick it. Ask him for his card and flip it over and write "DO NOT BUY FROM THIS *******" so he can see it and then tell him "Thanks, i wanted to make sure I would never buy anything from you."

Re: Dumb if you ask me...

lol, that's when you say: "Well, if it's a really good experience and we can get a decent price on my "POS" I might be buying today afterall". You then drive it come back and say: "Yeah it was a great experience, really liked it". Toss him the keys and leave.

Re: Dumb if you ask me...

This guy deserves the "Cobra Test Drive" (you all know the video I'm talking about). Do a burnout, and ask him if they can take some off for the tires since they are worn down.
