I have dealt with three good car salesman in my time, and it was night and day from the usual crowd. Thing is, I can't tell 'em apart at first, but you sure can tell the difference as the deal continues.
One was the son of the dealer co-owner, I don't know if he counts. One was at Buhler & Bitter in Hazlet, and one was at a certain competing dealership in Flemington.
Actually there were probably other good salespeople I met when shopping, but I didn't buy from them in the end — not because of them, but their cars.
Most were atrocious. I know I live in an area that is pretty bad for car dealerships.
It's the same with service.
The awful people one meets drown out the good ones.
There's a reason why car dealers and Congress are always competing for last place in reputation, but that doesn't mean there are not good, honest car dealers and Congressmen.
