This place is scary! I went there to look at a vehicle. I told the salesperson that I am NOT buying, just getting an idea if price so I know what I am going to have to save. The sales person (an old guy) told me about an upcoming sale, asked what I had to put down, am I going to trade on my car, etc. I told the guy AGAIN I'm not going to buy today and just to have him ease up, I said I would have to wait for my husband (I'm not married). Finally I told him that I was broke just to have him ease up on me.

This guy kept looking over his shoulder. I assume his boss was out there or something up it creeped me out. Then he said he had brochures inside and if I wanted one. I said sure. We went inside and he tells me to have a seat in his office and he will bring me one. I said no thanks. I noticed that there were brochures by the lobby so walked that way. Then he says why don't I make an appointment for you and your husband to come by? Come inside my office. I said no, I have to leave. Then he got rude and said why won't you just have a seat in my damn office!? What the hell is your problem? I was shocked so I just turned to walk out.

I got to the grassy edge of the lot, heading toward the street when a young Hispanic man yelled at me ma'am! I thought maybe I dropped something so I stopped and looked behind me. This guy gave me a smirk and said something to the effect of what can I do to put you in a new car today. But he said it really angry. I said nothing a kept walking.

I don't know if the people there are under incredible pressure or if they just hire @ssholes but I will never buy a car there.

I new someone that bought a car from pedder,they are by far the pushiest, in this valley, they got a used xterra,with payments of around 500 a month.they really don't care if you make enough, because if default, they just repo and keep what money you put down.I work for a nationwide distributor, for the dealerships,and what most people don't realize is when the mortgage crisis happened and gm took the bailout, The majority of all the dealerships merged into 4-5 giant groups.The lithia group, auto nation,dch group ect, these groups are hundreads of dealers strong and have higher volume than the smaller mom and pop ones, and can pass on better deals,and are less pushy.Most of them are not local though, but my advice would be shop around one of these.If your dead set on a nissan,i would recommend mossy nissan they have one in escondido and san diego. Good luck I hope this helps

When we decide to buy a new car we go to the dealerships after they close. DON'T GO ALONE. You can look at the sticker prices and see what you like. Then if you are interested in anything go back during the day. Write down the sticker price. Then decide what YOU want to spend. If you have a trade in check Kelly blue Book online. Decide what YOU want to get for your trade in. Give the prices to the saleman. Tell him you are firm on what you want. YOU CONTROL the situation. Don't let them take over.
Remember they don't make any money if you don't buy. So you have the upper hand. Do not let them turn it around. KEEP CONTROL. We have bought our last 4 vehicles that way.
If they won't deal then walk away and go somewhere else.
GOOD LUCK!!!!!
