Confessions of a Car Salesman Behind the Scenes
Confessions of a Car Salesman:
What really goes on in the back rooms of car dealerships across America?
What does the car salesman do when he leaves you sitting in a sales office
and goes to talk with his boss?
What are the tricks salespeople use to increase their profit and how can
consumers protect themselves from overpaying?
These were the questions we, the editors at Edmunds.com, wanted to answer
for our readers. But how could they really know that our information was
accurate and up-to-date? Finally, we came up with the idea of hiring an
investigative reporter to work in the industry and experience, firsthand,
the life of a car salesman.
We hired Chandler Phillips, a veteran journalist, to go undercover by
working at two new car dealerships in the Los Angeles area. First, he would
work at a high-volume, high-pressure dealership selling Japanese cars.
Then, he'd change over to a smaller car lot that sold domestic cars at "no

dealership sales process. It will also cast a new light on the role of the

avoid hidden charges — the next time you go to buy or lease a new car.
Read, learn and enjoy.

Some essential advice before buying a used car according to Mike Brewer Wheeler Dealers
" If you're in a market for a used car you might want this old Ferrari 308.
They aren't just folding. There are a few things that you should do if we
set off to go and buy a car. The first of which is to use your phone, maybe
your landline or your mobile phone, and phone with data service. Somebody
like HPI or the AA, and they can give you all the information you would
need to know whether the car is pretty involved in any accidents, whether
the police have got an interest, but more importantly, if it's got any
finance outstanding. Now, the only information you need to give him is a
registration number of a car. And if you can, get the chassis number of the
owner as well. That way, you can find out that the car you're buying is
genuine rather than setting off to go [unk] in the first place. All it cost
is the same price as a tanker fuel, and it's the best money you'll ever
spend. Secondly, when you arrive to go and see the car, make sure that the
car has not been previously rammed before you got there. What I mean by
that is put your hand on the body, although dirty on this Ferrari, or look
can be stupid because the engine on this car is down the back. So, when I
do get to the car, I can put the key in ignition and see if there's any
nasty fumes or black smoke coming out the Exhaust pipe. Now, the other thing to do is when
you do go and see a vehicle, make sure that the paperwork tallies to the
place where you're actually standing. You'd be amazed of the amount of
people who buy a car from the petrol station or from a pump carpark. What
you should do, is when you go and see a vehicle, make sure that the
paperwork says you'll stand in the barn any town. Make sure you all stand
in at the barn any town to come and see the car. That way, you know that
you're buying a genuine car of a genuine owner. Now, when you do finally
get there, and you've checked that it's not been previously rammed, you're
standing in the right place, and you've done your days check, don't let
your heart rule your head because you can't get carried away, especially
with something as evocative as this lovely 308 GT4. You want to make sure
that you've got yourself a price and stick to it. Don't go above it;
otherwise, you could end up to shell your money out forever in a day to
keep that thing on the road. If the car has got any outstanding finance,
then make sure you speak to the finance company before you go to see the
vehicle and find out what that settlement figure should be. That way, you
can give the owner the balance of the vehicle that you've agreed to
purchase it from, and send the settlement figure directly to the finance
company. That way, you know it's been paid. Other than that, happy
