If Car Commercials Were Honest
If car ads were honest, they’d tell us stuff we already know. This video from Cracked focuses on the money, but I’d also add the part about badgering potential customers who just want to look around, and the surprisingly large number of car salesman who still think a woman cannot select or buy a car on her own.
It doesn’t have to be this way. I always buy cars from private owners. They are already taking a loss, and really need to unload to get rid of insurance costs. The seller still makes more on a private sale than they would trading it in. My brother bought his last few cars from eBay: he saved money even when including travel expenses. (via Viral Viral Videos)
