Well with experiences like that I understand why you hate it. My thoughts are that they were probably on the lot for a while and had a flat on them. So the salesmen make more money if they sell it.

It's funny you say that name cause as soon as I read smug look I knew it was him. He always has that look. He's snaked some sales from me. If you come up there I'll make sure you don't deal with that problem again.

I have no clue. Considering it was $70K I guess he didnt think I could afford it even when I pulled out my checkbook. Needless to say, I worked him over like a man on fire put out with a wet chain.

I haven't heard anything on the flex being discontinued. If it is, I'm about 90% sure manufacturers have to have parts available for like 10 years.

Man, that's insane. I treat him everyone like they have a million dollars. Even the teenagers. How do I not know they aren't some teeny bopper Ive never heard of? My grandfather once went into a Harley davidson dealership looking like a hobo. He had $50k in cash and they turned him down. They didn't know he had it. So he went to Cadillac and bought top of the line and then drove to Harley Davidson so they can see what they missed out on. Of course this was years ago before Cadillac's started reaching almost $100k.
