I think what CalCar is saying is don't automatically assume the worst when you walk into a dealership. Don't think to yourself, "these guys are going to try and screw me so I'll just use every trick in the book to screw them." Be open and honest with them and if they don't return the favor then find someone else. Do your research so that you know when you're being jerked around, but give the dealer a chance to work with you above board before you assume that he's crooked.

There shouldn't be any stress involved in buying a car. Don't let the jerks out there get to you, just identify them and move on. There are plenty of good car salesmen out there, you just have to find them.
