I know this is probably more of a regional thing (I'm in Canada's big truck capital). But why do the sales guys try to push a young guy towards big expensive trucks. I bought my Focus on Friday, I started test driving and going to deals a few weeks before. Most of the dealerships including two local ford dealers tried to convince me that I wanted a fully loaded and jacked up F150 or something similar which ran a bill around $50k. I know what I wanted and I told them up front I was there to look at a specific car. Is it just because of commission?
Because they suck at their job. I never push a guy into a vehicle they don't want. I may throw up some suggestions though. Very few people know what they want.
