Used car salesman
A mate from work spent the weekend looking for VT commodores and AU Falcons in a bid to replace the family taxi.
While he's not exactly up to speed on cars (at least he's not lookin' at Camrys!) he knows enough to smell a rat, especially this one.
At a medium sized dealer, who shall remain nameless :-), he found a VT commodore, and went for a test drive. Immediately he noticed the auto gearbox not shifting up properly, holding on to a gear for too long, and also not willing to kick down. I had forewarned him of the $$ involved in electronic auto boxes, so he was rather concerned. This is how the conversation with the salesman went:
buyer: "doesn't seem to shift real well."
salesman: "they're all like that, it's for performance and economy."
buyer: "Nah, I reckon there's something wrong."
salesman: "Yeah, maybe it needs a little oil."
buyer: "Ahh, my XF used to leak like a seive, and when it got low it did the same, has this got a fluid leak mate? It could be expensive."
salesman: "Nah, there's no leak, she's dry as a bone."
buyer: "Well why is it low on oil then?"
...........and here's the killer response:
salesman: "Aw, you know how it is, we're a Ford dealer so a used Commydore isn't a big seller. It's sat on the lot for a while now so the oil's probably evaporated"
This salesman should be shot, or sent to a Hyundai dealer:-)
Needless to say the sale was not exactly happening after this point!
SH.....T, I'd better race out & check my fluid levels, who knows what else might evaporate!
Anyone else got some good ones?
My cars not on fire, that's just the tyres.
