Smile over priced used cars

gotta smile really. when i bought my XR6 we traded in a 95 mondeo and an EF XR6. the EF was sold within a month, yet the mondeo was put on the yard with a sticker price of $14990. the car yard STILL have the car.

we bought the XR in february.......................2002!

You wash your car like it was your firstborn child, you tend to its needs like it was your own body, you protect it like it's your family, then you drive it like you stole it.

Re: over priced used cars

That is bad business. A smart dealer would have gotten rid of the car somehow now. They should have at least wholesaled it by now.

Generally a yard will hold on to a car for a max of 6 months. If it's not sold, they sell it to another dealer (at dealer price not retail) who put's their own price on it and try to sell it.

This guy doesn't have a clue!
