Not all dealers are alike. given that most of us know which ones we would rather deal with. weather it is a hard sell tactics or adding a second sticker to the side of the vehicle with such needed extras as valve stem waxing and headrest fluffing.

    There is a dealer in my area that has Volkswagen, Kia and Subaru under one umbrella and they have 800  dollars in charges on this second sticker. The prices on used cars can be a turn off too for me.

yes, I agree. Mostly they just do their pitch in and before we know it, they are overcharging us.

I found this list of the current slow sellers where the dealer would have a lot of nerve to charge you 1 cent over invoice on.  I can certainly understand why the Saab business isn't booming, if anybody even dares to take their chances on one.

Lehman Motors here in Miami sticks a $2000 list of "paint protection" and other crap on every Buick, Hyundai, Subaru, Suzuki and whatever they sell. I clicked on a thing that was supposed to give me a price on a Veloster and I get a call from the same dealer (where I had been earlier this year and noted these stickers before) and the salesman told me he didn't have any Velosters, but I should stop in anyway, and I mentioned the add-on stickers to him. He seemed to not know what I was talking about. I got no quote at all. Then some guy who calls himself the sales manager gets on the line and tells me that his salesman is doesn't know anything and blah, blah, blah, and also seems not to know what I am referring to with regard to the damn add-on sticker. He also refuses to give me a price quote.He also tells me that I should have the money in the checking account and come see him for a wonderful deal. In a pig's eye, I think.

I have no desire whatever to deal with these people. It is like punching Mike Tyson in the face and expecting things to turn out well. I am inclined to use an auto-buying service.

Our local Fredericksburg Kia dealer is the ONLY reason we bought the car the day we did.

They were courteous and worked with us without being offensive throughout the entire deal.

Kia should send them a bonus.

Yea,I'm not too happy with the mileage our new Kia Rio 5 door(32 hwy-26 city when advertised at 40 hwy-30 city) is getting but that's not the dealers fault,that's Kia's.

I've had way more other dealerships in the past I wanted to strangle the people in but not this Kia dealership.

So,if you don't like how you are being treated in a deal-GET UP AND WALK OUT-WITH YOUR MONEY-SMILING.

Someone else will be very happy to sell you a car and treat you better in the process too.

I'm not going to suffer if it is something I like. Good content is good content. Plus all the people I dislike in SL don't make a damn thing.

It can have an impact on your decision because its the person that you are having a deal with, so in choosing a dealer you always be careful so that you won't have any problems at all...
