Shopping for the Right Salesperson – Still in search of a compact SUV to lease this spring, my wife Lisa and I recently had a dealership shopping experience that was so far from the norm, we left quite early in the process. In fact, it was so bad that in fairness to the manufacturer, I’ll not name the brand, the vehicle model, or the dealership.
Shopping for the Right Salesperson – My wife Lisa and I are in the market to replace the premium compact SUV we currently lease. Despite being football lineman-sized, I have always had a distinct preference for smaller vehicles, so when a brand updated its 2019 model with a handsome facelift and other improvements, it made our radar.
Shopping for the Right Salesperson – In 1898, William Metzger opened the first new car dealership in the U.S. in Detroit, Michigan. 120 years later, the vehicles we purchase are laden with technologies and comforts undreamed of in his era. While the cars are obviously different from a century ago, the retail sales process hasn’t changed much, especially since financing was first offered in the early 1920’s.
