Angry Stupid Ford Salesmen

So, earlier this week i called around to the dealerships around Denver to see if any of them had an 05 on the lot. out of the 10 or so dealerships i called, like 7 or 8 told me that the 05 foci would not be available untill fall. so, i told them that the ford website said they would be released spring 05. they all said, the website must be wrong, we will not be getting them untill the fall. so i had each and every one talk to the person in charge of ordering the new cars, each and every one of them came back and said that they should be getting the 05 focuses soon. (anywere from a couple days to a month, depending on the dealership)

i even had one guy who said to me, "why dont you come over and look at the 04 Focuses we have in stock, you know, there really will not be that much difference" I told him that their was a new body style and new engines, and he was like, oh, well, can i call you when we get the new ones in? NO YOU CANT, YOU ARE TO STUPID TO SELL ME A CAR!

[/rant]

sorry, people trying to sell products they have absolutly no knowledge of is a pet peave of mine. I was looking at a new mazda 3 at a ford/mazda dealership, and the salesman told me it had the new pzev engine. um, i thought that came in the focus....

We have 1 and more coming within next few days. They are a bit different but I personally dont like the interior on the 05 its a lil cheesy.

your a ford salesman? sry, didnt mean to insult you, or insinuate that all of them are like that, just most of the ones i have dealt with.

the salesman i bought my focus from originally was great, but he is now working at the airport, so i really cannot go back to him and buy another car. (but maybe he can give me hook ups on a plane? lol)

No insult taken, I work with many idiots and they come and go. The new Focus is very flat on the inside like the expeditions. It doesnt seem sporty to me or european anymore

I actually had a salesman tell me once that "he didn't know anything about the car, he just sells them" when I asked a question.
I didn't know if he was just EXTREMELY STUPID or if it was cuz I was a girl and he just wanted to be an arsehole .

The salesman tried to get a lead so you told him he was stupid? Impressive.

:) The Mazda 3 does come with the 2.0 and 2.3l duratec engines, so the salesman was actually right.

Indeed. The Duratec is a joint effort between Ford and Mazda. Besides that, PZEV just means Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle, so there could be other brands out there that are PZEV's.

While my latches were getting fixed the one salesman where I got my car told me that he didn't know what a PZEV engine was. I think i made him feel pretty stupid, he just walked away. . .
