Some of the guys at Auto House. I went there with cash to buy a pretty expensive car and they would not tell me the price. Its insulting to the intelligence of most buyers to do this-I walked and never looked back.

They did not tell you the price because they do not want to sell a car for cash or if you have your own financing. They make their money on high interest loans. If you have ever talked to anyone that has purchased a car there they will tell you the first thing they ask is "how much can you afford a month?". On top of that they are usually way "upside down" on what they buy meaning they owe way way more than what the car is worth and basically stuck with it until it is paid off.

Your best bet for a used car purchase is an individual or possibly even a regular dealer. These buy here pay here places will sink you. I know there people out there that cannot get a loan from a bank but these places actually make it worse for them in the long run.

I agree about the Auto House - was interested in a truck they had for sale and they refused to tell me the price over the phone but instead asked what I'd be willing to pay. If you aren't going to be upfront with prices, I'm not doing business with you, period.

So if they gave you the price would you pay that or want to neg.even more? Let me guess you want retail for your trade but want to pay wholesale for there car? Good sales people will not give you a price on the phone.I love dealing with know it all's like you makes it sweeter when I make a $1000 off of you.I bet f&I managers love you!!

I just love condescending used car salesmen like you.....NOT! That's why I never buy a used car off a lot. Buy from individuals only. They're wanting to get rid of a payment, you're wanting to take prospective buyers to the cleaners. Period.

Pretty funny there fukstik. Thing is, I dont "trade in". I pay cash for everything and sell outright. I go in knowing the BLACK BOOK, yes the real thing that only dealers have access to- I have researched the vehicles reliability and depreciation curve and I also understand that the dealer is entitled to a profit. BTW, what is an f&i manager? Would that be financing?....dont need it, thanks though. So, funny person-who is the joke now. Someone that AUTOMATICALLY assumes that financing is a necessity when buying a vehicle?

So, you really dont think that its necessary to let the customer know what the price is when dealing? Auto House is a pretty high end lot for the people of Terre Haute. Its also situated just blocks from some pretty well to do neighborhoods. I think that they should decide whether they want to be a buy here pay here or a regular lot. "How much a month" is a buzz statement for the financially doomed. This philosophy is based on the numbers game that allows a person to think that they "got a great trade in!" "Wow! how did they give me 4k for my Escort on trade? I must really be savvy" In reality, you get the trade for nothing, jack the finance rate and raise the cost of the car they are looking at based on the value of the trade. EVERYONE is not stupid to your game. Want a used car cheap? Go see Hawkins-they might be a little high but they are HONEST. Want a high end car? Go see Big Will or Eric at Premier, otherwise plan on getting screwed.

I've been to several dealers where the salesperson claimed that they didn't know the vehicle price but knew what the monthly payments would be.

JD Byrider that used to be at 7th & US41 was like that & the Sullivan car dealer at the old & new US41 split couldn't give me a price when I asked.

If you buy a vehicle based primarily on what the monthly payment is going to be you need some serious help in understanding personal finances, debt and wealth building.

I advocate paying cash for a vehicle as well. barring that, you really should never finance for more than 36 months (and that's probably pushing it). Otherwise you're almost guaranteed to be upside down in the vehicle right off the bat.

Pay cash. Debt is the devil's candy.

I'll NEVER have an auto loan again. In fact, I haven't borrowed money in close to 10 years.

The sales people at HH Greg. I went in there to buy a 60" TV, there must have been 10 sales people in the store and maybe 2 customers. I couldn't get anyone to help me. So I left and bought it elsewhere.

people are trying to make money, its part of sales. granted some are worse than others ..but its sales. just depends if u find someone that actually goes above and beyond to take care of u. the cheapest isnt always the best when it comes to the automotive world. been in automotive for over 7yrs and I can tell you alot of stuff ive seen, from backyard mechanics to crooked dealers. I dont care much for auto house but their are a few good people there.
