We bought a used car from a well respected local dealer this week. The car is fine and the price was good (I think!) but why are car salesmen so terrible? They do all that stupid thing of telling you how you have the cheapest, best value car in the garage and how they can hardly afford to feed their children,so hard have you bargained. This tends to make me never want to go back again. Why would I want to return for more of the same? I don't think we've ever bought more than one car from any garage! He told us he'd get it MOTed, but it turns out it already had an MOT, from October, when they bought it, although it's not yet three years old. Why would he say this? Why not just point out how marvellous it is that it's MOTed until October rather than us have to get one? It's just silly. I came away wondering how much of what he'd said in total was just manufactured because he thought it was what we wanted to hear. Why can't they just be honest? Are they born like this? The daft thing is that it's a nice car at a good price and he really didn't need to say any of the stupid things he did. It's as if they just can't help themselves. And he spelt 'cello' 'chelo'. Give me strength. Rant over! Hopefully we won't need another car for a good few years.
