Well we're off car shopping today, not one of my favorite activities. Right up there with root canals. Why is car buying so hard? Buying a house isn't that difficult, buying a boat isn't a nightmare, leasing anything is simple. But cars are different and I don't understand it and it makes me grumpy.
When we car shop I always play "the bad guy", the one who walks away. Except it's not an act, car salesmen always make me angry. I don't want to play games. I tell them what I want, what I'm willing to pay, how long I'm willing to pay it, what I'll pay down, whether I have a trade-in or not, and do I get a straight answer in return? NEVER! They offer this, they take away that, they connive. I'm not looking forward to this. Here's hoping I'm over reacting.
Is car shopping like this in other countries?
