Default dealership visit ram 2012

I went to my local dealership
all i really wanted was the 2012 publications,
but i was attacked by the Sales Team, they were having a big sales promotion today, but it was for the 2011 models
as it turned out, the salesman was the SALES MANAGER
he was smiling like i was the best customer that had walked into the salesroom all day
I told him that i wanted to see the 2012 RAM models, he said that i could get a much better deal on the 2011
I told him that i had a 2009 1500 Ram SLT & didn't give a shit about his 2011s

His facial expression changed drastically, but the smile never left his face, i think it was a mask
He then started telling me about all the advantages & incentives that the 2011 had
I told him that my 2009 had all he had to offer & much more, he gave up trying to sell me the 2011

Then he said that he had a 2012 Ram DIESEL on the sales lot, ( i never got to see it)
I am thinking BS to the MAX

then he started the sales speech about the 2011 & 2012 being exactly the same, well, i started naming things that were improved with the 2012 & what would be coming in 2013

he left & did some checking & found out that i was right, I was smiling inside
i had told him about the converted 6 speed automatic & the fancy steering wheel that were going to be on the 2012 Ram
he didn't know about either
then he asked me if i worked for Dodge or Mopar, i said NO, he offered me a JOB
I also told him about the bigger engines that were in the works, the ZF 8 & 9 speed Transmission & ZF Rear ends that are coming out
I even crawled under a Jeep that they thought was SPECIAL, it only had a DANA 44 rear end, not the ZF rear end & i commented on that too

all in all i had a great day, they don't have any 2012 brochures yet & he didn't even know how to get to the dealers website for ordering the 2012s
he tried to find information on the sites that you & i go to

I must say that i walked out SMUGLY, with a grin that was bigger then my face

LOL that is too funny. It always makes me feel good when the dealerships can be brought down a notch or two

Another example of why it is so important that YOU do your homework BEFORE going to a dealership. Most times if they don't know the answer they will just guess or worst yet, just plain lie to you. Thanks to the OP for the reminder.

The dealership is really starting to push the sale of the 2011 vehicles
My dealership has free food & drinks, they have some of those kids inflatable enclosures, & the balloons are tied to the fences & light poles
I have to wonder what they are going to do on Labor Day
they will be getting in all the 2012s starting in about 3 weeks,
Likely they already have some at their OFF site locations & don't want to start selling them until after Labor Day weekend

I bet the best deals on the 2011s are about to start, the sales lot is completely full & they had 2 crews washing the cars off

Nice work GT! I love it when I go in to get my vehicle serviced and tell the service writer about rapid responses that they don't even know about. You really have to love the information you can get here!

Sounds like you had a blast over there! For my 18th birthday I plan on going to a dealership and testing out some 2012's

My friend has done it before. He went in and said his dad was letting him get anything under 50K and man that salesman let him test drive a SRT8. heheh

Sounds like the typical car salesman lol but I was at my local dealership here in central Ark yesterday and they already had 3 2012 Ram 2500's on the ground, a mega cab and two crew cab monotone laramie longhorns which look great in person.

I'll never forget the time I went to check out a Caliber SRT4 and the salesman told me he'd meet me with the car out front, so, he opened the door, looked in...saw it was a manual transmission, than told me that I can pull it around and he'll meet me out front with the tag.

Idk why...just thought it was the funniest thing...haha. I also knew a lot about the SRT that he didn't, which was quite funny. And...I scared him on the test drive. All in all a great day at the dealership.

Also...if you're young, just tell them you just signed up with the military and they offered you a $20,000 sign on bonus...they'll let you test drive almost anything being thats a helluva down payment.
