I keep running into people I know from the car business that are tired of putting up with the hassle of selling every day to make chump change and have to start over from scratch with new prospects. The dealership keeps most of the money made while they do most of the work. Just when they think they are building up a nice pool of clients that will refer friends and come back to purchase future vehicles, they lose them to another dealership that just moved into town.
I was a victim for 3 years before I learned I was not an advertising agent but my presentation was a 100% scripted lie sold to me and thousands of young persons around the country every year for literally 50 years! Unwittingly, thousands of these young persons, including myself, were out selling, thinking we were advertising agents. Well unfortunately, that happens to countless of sales persons on a daily basis from unscrupulous owners of companies. In forty years of sales I have seen it all, from car sales, to home improvement sales persons to every, other kind of sale. They are way to numerous to list. The problem is that a large number of salespersons, because of the money, rationalize that their lies are okay since the company is doing it, not them. Somewhere you have to draw a line.
If you have to repair the car for the same problem enough times it can be protected under federal law where the dealer will have to buy the car back. In addition, if you love the gratification of having the newest and best vehicle on the market you will probably be more drawn to a brand new car. If this sounds like your style then you will most likely only be happy with a brand new car.
Not so the supply of cars on your corner used car lot. We probably saw 750,000 of them go from the road to the scrap heap. If even three-quarters of these were cars that could have been resold (and a review of a lot of those stories suggest it is the case), we have taken a half-million or more auto usate palermo out of service.
You want to make sure that the car has been kept up well, and that it has gone through all of the usual inspections and maintenance actions. Be sure to ask about oil changes, and be sure to check for any previous damages or repairs that were done on the vehicle.
Hence while going for a used car purchase, one must perform extensive research. There will always be a car that suits personal needs very well; it is just a case of finding it. Once the right car is found, one can always negotiate on prices and other perks.
As the leader thinks and acts, the team shall too. If the leaders of your business talk “bad economies” and “bad markets,” the team will believe it. What are your leaders doing right now? Don’t major in the minor. Spend every minute of the day in the pursuit of things that will create customers and incomes now and in the future. Just last week I had a dealer tell me that he was waiting for this bad market to turn around before he did anything with his business. My reply was, “How is that working for you?” If the leader does not believe, don’t expect the troops to believe.
