You should call John. He went all "I'm in purchasing, this is what I do for a living" grumpy face on my ass. I had to play the dumb, "I want a Honda Pilot", wife role and be quiet... so not my style. I had to muster up my 7th grade acting abilities and died a little inside when the 20 year old, protein shake drinking, salesman asked me if I was there to look at minivans (womp womp). Perhaps I should write my own car buying post... sigh.
My hubs lets me do the talking. He says I "flip the Bitch Switch" and I do. I was 100% honest with our last salesman & told him what payment we wanted, features, etc & told him if he can't deliver then I'd save all of our time. Finally after some looking I told him not a dollar over the payment I asked for. He came back & said $400? I said, "We'll take it, tonight if you get it to $400. $401 & we walk." He came back & told me he had told the finance guy that I'd walk...and that I was serious. We got it for $400 & some change. Lol.
Me too Amanda!! I told my guy not a dime over $300 a month or I'd buy something else. He tried to sell me on why this car was better than the cheaper ones I could get and I just stared at him. $300 a month it was. Kthanksbye. Be serious with them and don't be afraid to walk away, they'll get there or someone else will.
