I'm not satisfied when I buy a car unless the manager says don't come back here after the deal is made. I have some really asanine habbits when I buy that probably make me out to be the biggest jerk around, but I get the price I want and I know they "screw" people everyday and they like it.
and for all of you that say you are a good person in the car sales business or "my husband is a great guy and he sells cars", I doubt it. thats like 1 in a 100.
It's true! Straight dealerships go broke! I bought professionally for my own businesses for many years, and still buy today. I am a dealerships worst nightmare with a background in buying I ignore everything thrown in to confuse the bottom line and am not movable. Insurance? Sure feel free to throw it in under this shopped price or I don't want to hear it mentioned again!
If you can buy with cash then you have the power on your side. If you make your offer and they don't take it so what? Go to the next dealer. Car dealers are hurting. If there is any profit they will take it right now.
Car manufacturers who were bailed out are not lowering the price of cars. So it's up to you to set the price.

I even control where we sit. just as they start to sit me at one of those little round tables I go, "I want to sit in that room over there" them "ummm thats the umm the assistant sales managers office" Me "ohhh really, that will be just fine" them "let me go check with my boss" Me "Ok I'll go have a seat in there then".
short of pulling de-pantsing them, I'll do anything.

I've been on a path of discovery for awhile now and one of the things I've discovered about myself is that I'm very much a nurturer. In this mothering role, I tend to put others' needs before my own and over time begin to resent others for it. In an effort to begin taking better care of...
