    Default Cannot buy a new car if i tried!

    Just been looking at the competition in car makes and decided to go and have a look at a Ford Mondeo and a Toyota Avensis.

    Firstly,walked into 2 ford dealers and they didn't have any mondeo's in the showroom or any demonstrators .

    I said 'how am i suppose to make a purchase if i cannot see them?'

    All they could come up with was that they'de sold all of them.

    Useless ford dealers.

    So it was onto Toyota.I walks in and the salesman said they didn't have any demonstrators available.He had an attitude that i was wasting his time.I pointed out my 07 plate Vectra and said i'd paid cash in full for it,brand new.(which i had)

    He then started to pull my Veccy apart(verbally) and tell me that it wasn't a patch on the Toyota.

    What is it with these guys.I have £15,000 to spend in cash and they don't want to know!.

    Prehaps it was because i was wearing jeans and a hoody.

    I should try in a suit next time.

    I am sick of dealers not thinking i can afford their cars when infact i'd be their best customer.

    Ah well,i'll carry on looking(Mazda and Honda next!!)

    Had this response in a number of dealers when I was looking for a new car. Best two were the Peugeot dealer, who couldn't do enough and surprisingly, a BMW dealer who was very attentive and helpful.

    Write to the manager. I'm sure he would love to know that his sales people think that business is so good they can turn down a £15k sale – ask him if his staff can really judge a book by its cover.

    Emails sent to both Ford dealers and the Toyota one.

    Toyota salesman asked what i paid for the Veccy.I told him £10,995.He went off and got his Glasses guide out and said the list price for my car was £16500 so how did i get it for £10,995?

    I said list price is exactly that and no one pays full list price.(Actually the list price of mine is £14,500)

    He said its now worth £8,500(which i knew) and that if you'de paid £16500 for it new then you'de be well p1ssed about it being worth £8500 now.

    I tried to tell him in simple speech that i paid £10995 and that now its worth £8500.Ie a drop of approx £2500 in 1 year which is to be expected.

    He kept telling me that the Toyota wouldn't depreciate that much(yeah right).

    He said that AYGO'S trade in a year later for only £500 less than they were new.

    I said 'oohh look a flying monkey' and made my sharp exit when he looked
