I guess when I first got into the car business I pretty much thought like the rest of the world, that the car salesman is just like an attorney and you can't trust either one of them. That sure is a hard stigma to get past with some people. I guess they think we are still living in the old days when you could make 5-10,000 profit on a vehicle and wouldn't think twice about it. Or, they think that every car salesman is looking to sell them a "lemon" knowing that it is one. I have to say that I have tried really hard to be the most honest salesman that I can possibly be and to instill that in others around me. Because, for one, I don't want anyone thinking I'm dishonest about anything. I know it is hard for some people to believe but it's true. There is really too much information that's available to be able to pull the wool over someones eyes and make a ton of money. There are many honest salesmen out there that are only trying to provide for their family, such as I am, and would never do anything deceitful to harm anybody. Now, I know that there are many still out there that love to take advantage of people but please don't lump us all in together. I have a God that I will answer to one day and the least of my concerns is what people say about me. I am more worried about His judgment but that helps me be a more honest individual. I strive daily to find ways to provide for my family. I don't need, nor want, the nicest house, the best cars or the latest fad like the majority of the world is striving after. I can only hope and pray that I will be provided for as long as I am obedient.
All this to say, the next time you are at a car dealership or plan on going please give the sales people the benefit of the doubt and trust them until they give you a reason not to. Most of them are just trying to do like you and provide for their families daily. Yes, there are those out there that give the rest of us a bad reputation but please don't lump us all in the pile of dung that is dishonesty.
