I'll be damned if a dealer want me to front some gas on a test drive image

A California car dealership has stopped offering free test drives because of high gas prices.

Managers at the Sacramento Auto Sales Center in West Sacramento say they have a customer come in almost every day wanting to test drive one of them, which gets expensive.

"We have to pay for all the gas and when you have 70, 80 different cars it gets real expensive," said the manager.

At $45 per fill up, costs add up to at least $3,100.

Obviously they suck. Maybe they can get away with something like this... probably not tho. Must be ruff on the salesperson. I sell hondas and you cant just ask someone to test drive let alone pay for it. 15% of people wanna drive everything and then beat the sh*t out of me at negotiations, usually saying something like "ive bought over 12 cars in my life and u dont scare me"... and the other 85% are timid as hell. Usually ill give them a walkaround, tell them to have a seat in the passenger seat, give them alil tour and then pull off onto a test drive before they know it... now imagine if i pulled up to a gas station and say "ok, now pay for this gas and then drive us back to the dealership" lol never. Not to mention Honda Corporation pays a percentage of the gas bills so idk where these guys are coming from...

Cant do that, ppl find anything wrong with the car when theyre by themselves... a salesperson who wants to make a deal knows that they must be in there to shed a positve light on the car. Despite what ppl may think it is very much an emotional decision and u gotta keep their emotion going until the signing...

I also agree, you know what the best thing to do while test driving with a customer,,, shut the fu*k up. Its just your presence that will help. Explain alil while i drive off, then switch and STFU, let the customer feel it themselves... i aint lyin
