Re: Now this is how you test drive a car

Thats one annoyed car sales guy. Probably going to lose his job too. That static tyre removal proceedure (burnout) was right out the front of the lot I think.

Well the salesman was bound to lose his job reguardless, anyone who's that much of a push over will make it no where as a salesman.

Re: Now this is how you test drive a car

I think it's a set up if you ask me, who goes for a test drive at night, which dealer is open at night and as if he'd let them drive with no license and who was filming the car from the outside while the other 3 were in the vehicle. I think they were all in on it.

I second that. And also the salesman didn't seem as pissed off as you'd expect - in fact, he took it rather well, a little too well... Also during the drive, he didn't seem bothered enough about the way the car was being "driven" to not be in on it.

As if a real salesman wouldn't really crack the shits as soon as you gave the car any sort of a real hard time during a test drive, particularly if he hadn't got the guys details or license, knowing the guy didn't have a license on him (thus meaning he might not even have one)...

Nah, nothing sus...
