some salesguy babble...... we are not all like that.
I don't think glhs837 was directly or indirectly "having a go" at you. With all the knowlegeable and well-connected people on the forum, I am sure that you do your very best to make sure that, all your statements are not open to criticism.
However this is a very disappointing industry wide problem. My attempts to discuss whether to purchase a 300c or a Magnum with a salesperson ( in this case it was a woman) - and before you all get up and try and swat me for saying that - I had taken her to the limit of her knowledge, so she brought in a guy, to help her. Then the problems began - we were discussing the differences and I said they were built on the same platform - and he said " no they are totally different cars" then his buddy chimed in "and the Magnum with a towing package has less cargo area than the standard Magnum because the shocks are bigger, and they had to change the body"
My answer after a confirmation that they were wrong was "no sale because I no longer trust what you say". I walked out knowing that I could always go back to the sales manager if I needed to. I also thought that 99% of other customers would have accepted what they said - It was said with such convincing confidence. So I moved on to the next dealer.
After, I considered the possibility that these guys were trying to screw the saleswoman over - but maybe that is being generous to them - really think they were just bullshi**ing.
DCX dealer salespeople on this forum have to get it right because they are held to such a high standard by the forum members - in the outside world DCX should be doing this for the general public- there are many ways they could do this - one that comes to mind is the - "company buyer" with an assessment that gives or takes away something from the dealer dependant on truth and accuracy.
The whole industry needs a shakeup. They produce these marvelous products and then market them through a system that, (with some exceptions) abuses the public.
