I am inclined to agree with CalCar on this to some extent. Buyers should respect salespeoople until it becomes clear they shouldn't. I was a car salesman for a summer in college. I took the job as a sort of whim and ended up learning alot. I had the luxury of not HAVING to sell a car to eat, but still, I ended up making alot of money that summer. People liked the honesty and relaxed when I convinced them I would help them if possible. If not, I wasn't going to hassle them about going somewhere else. People loved it. Some even called and apologized to me if they bought elsewhere (I'm not lying about this). Again, I had a luxury in not having bills to pay so I didn't really care if someone left, but the bottom line is I made money. Both sides need to be open. Otherwise, we'll all be buying new cars online, which may not be such a bad thing.
