A few years ago, I stopped at a Car Mart used car lot to take a look at a car that I thought I might be interested in. I knew this kind of car well, and I also knew what they were worth on average, depending on miles and condition. And I also know that car lots have to 'squeeze' in commission for their sales people, pay bills, pay taxes, and still try to turn a profit for the business. I understand THAT, I GET THAT, O.K.?? But LISTEN TO ME: I KNOW how many used car lots acquire their inventory: They buy most of their inventory DIRT CHEAP at auto auctions, or from individuals who they ROB by telling them their vehicles are worth a lot less than they'll end up selling them for. The last time I went to a Car Mart lot, the car I looked at had 80,000 miles on it, and I ALREADY KNEW what that car was worth on average because my nose stays on and CONSTANTLY!! So when a car salesman came out and told me the price, I didn't have the guts to tell the dude I thought he was working for a crooked operation.
