Holden Dealer Experience
OK, While I was away, I went to a holden dealer to see what there tactics where., and what sort of shit they where telling customers.
I was disgusted, but what can you expect from a holden dealer?
I told him I was interested in the XR8 or the SS.
He said dont compare the two, the XR8 is shit..
He also told me the following points:
*Dont be confused by the XR8 being only 5kw away from the SS... Power isnt just about kilowatts..... The SS has so much more power than the XR8...
*THe SS handles so much better than the XR8
*The commodore is a much safer car than the falcon.. I would be do scared to drive a falcon they are so unsafe. Holden has invested big money in saftey, whereas ford just give you gimmicks like CD player and power windows instead of saftey features.
*Ford dealers are giving them away at big discounts, because they cant sell any. We cant get enough SS's so I cant give you a discount
*The SS looks so much better than the XR8.
*Holdens win races, Ford couldnt win one if they tried.
etc etc.. Makes me sick to hear some of the shit these dealers are spinnning to their customers.
