LOL that is low mileage around Texas. People usually average about 20 to 35,000 miles a year in Texas on their vehicles due to all the highway driving. 31,500 a year here for me.

Unless I'm missing something here thats what a salesman does. Trust me, I know. People LOVE that kinda attitude when they are out to buy new things. Becuase as a saleman if im selling this car to you and I say "yes its high mileage" then Im being honest and then if I say "but LOOK at how B-E-A-UTIFUL it is! You cant find a car that looks THIS good with this mileage!!! What a FANTASTIC deal!!!" I've jsut got you thinking that the car looks damn good, its rare, and your getting it cheap. People dont listen to every word. And that makes it easier and easier to sell things to them.

Personally, I hate any salesman that tries to B.*. me. Treat me honestly, and be straight-forward. Luckily, I have a used car dealer that I have a good relationship with. Over the years, between my family and a friend'* family, we've purchased 16 cars from him, and have yet to get a bad one.

bingo. the only dealers we have bought cars from are those who are totally honest and don't try to push a sale.. when I went to look at my car the dealer gave me the keys and said after the test drive to ask him any questions that I wanted to know about the car.. he didn't try and sell me the car. But really, he was by not being pushy. It was a real comftorable experience buying my car..

While that is the BEST experience, and we all would love to have it, the fact is the other method WORKS very well. Some people will turn and walk away from it when they see it, others fall right into the charm and pizzaz a saleman like this has.

Default Re: Salesman

Don't bother looking for a car in big cities. I get pissed when a salesman trys to sell me something I don't want. Last summer for the hell of it I went with my aunt to go look at a Chevy Tahoe and they wanted to shove me in a base model 4 cylinder Malibu. The damn sales people at that dealership were like vultures, they jump out at you out of the corners, and when your looking at a car on the lot they peak out from behind other vehicles to lure you into something you dont want. Its rather comical to watch some of them. One guy got so irrate with my aunt that he slammed the car door on a car she was looking at and walked off because she told him for the FOURTH and final time that she didnt want that car. He told her "fine you don't have to get rowdy with me" and walked away. Me -----> Needless to say I'm still with my Bonneville, and she'* still with her Suburban. We had a nice little talk with the sales manager at that particular dealership, ever since they've been sending my aunt offers in the mail on a new car. :P She told me she'd drive her Suburban till the wheels fell off if buying a car was going to be that difficult. ***Whispers "don't **** off the sales people @ Bill Heard Chevrolet in Sugarland, Texas"***

From a lady in Houston, Texas
Quote:
I wanted to make it known more about the character and dealings of Bill Heard Chevrolet (Sugarland, Texas), as well as Munday Chevrolet (Northwest Harris County). I have had DTPA problems when cosigning a car for a friend at Munday Chevrolet where they misinformed us about the sales price and monthly payments. We agreed on a sales price and a set APR rate. The contract was drawn up for a different sales price and a very hefty priced maintenance/warranty package was included. Unfortunately, the case was never taken to trial.

The friend I co-signed for just traded in this vehicle to Bill Heard Chevrolet. The used car manager is harassing me for my social security number (which she only needs if I am buying a car--which I am not). When I refused to give it to her, she then instructed my friend to impersonate me to GMAC (lienholder) and try to obtain my social security number that way. The used car manager sent me paperwork to sign in order to transfer the title out of the lienholder'* name into the custody of Bill Heard Chevrolet.

She sent me BLANK power of attorney forms to sign allowing Bill Heard to then execute any document on my behalf to transfer the title of the car described in the document. There was no description of the vehicle listed in the form. Since I've left the woman a message calling her out on the fact that she'* not going to get away with that with me, she will not return my phone calls. I've filed a complaint with Chevrolet Corporation. I have filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau. I give you permission to post my complaint on your website if, and only if, you block out my name. I am tired of corporations taking advantage of their customers.
