[quote:3c897e91e2="boneheadz"]I hate car dealers. They are sleazy and greedy.
My long winded advice is to find a salesman you like, and build a relationship.

There are good ones out there.[/quote:3c897e91e2]

I'm glad you finally put that little blurb at the bottom about the good ones. Auto sales is like anything in life: there are good ones and bad ones. The beauty of it is that you can pick a different salesperson or even a different dealership if you want. You're not obligated to buy from someone you don't like or trust or at a price you don't agree to.

What we have done the last few times is simply visit with several dealerships and explain that we will buy a car in the next 2-3 weeks from whoever gives us the best deal. Someone always comes out on top and they almost always work their best deal at the very end. You can't blame them for not showing their cards until you're finally ready. It's their job to make profit.

I'm still quite amazed by the lack of enthusiasm and marketing from our area Honda dealers. They are selling Elements, but they don't hype them up much. Our local dealer acts like we are wasting their time for even coming in to look at an Element. No problem, I'll just go somewhere else.
