keep-n-it-real, sounds like you're a professional salesperson. I agree with you 100%. I'm also a professional salesperson with 24 years experience. I love the comment about how the author went under cover to sell cars. I have told many rookie sales people to use a line like "that color matches your eyes" . I can only imanige the laughes the veterans got from giving the rookie mis-information. The best way to understand sales, is watch the movie "Suckers"!

keepinitreal hit the nail on the head! during certain times of the model year, certain vehicle models DO in fact become harder to get as inventory dwindles. If there is a sale going on,  inventory IS being reduced every day. So, yes there is a certain amount of urgency in buying a vehicle of interest that day.  There is a lot of misinformation in this article.

This article sucks. Most salespeople are in the business to truly satisfy their customers needs. People would truly be happier and completely satisfied if they were just honest will their salesperson when assessing their needs and desires. This would make for the appropriate product selection and presentation. Unfortunately, articles like this promote playing games instead of sincere comunication. Unfortunately, the only person that really gets hurt in the 'Game Playing' transactions are the customers. This article is trash! The Editor who posted it should be fired too! The writer and Editor are both idiots!
