Buying a car can be a very satisfying and rewarding experience if done properly
or it can be one of the most stressful, if not the most stressful
buying experience you will encounter. In the automobile sales business, the
consumer is rarely as prepared as the dealership.
Consequently, regardless of how good of a negotiator a consumer is, our research
reveals it is virtually assured the dealership will almost always win and the
buyer will almost always lose. With losses consistently measured in the thousands.

to give them enough information to protect their rights and an opportunity to
negotiate for a fair deal.
Car Buyer’s Primer™will give
the consumer the
edge they need to fight off the automotive sales industry's
deceptive sales tactics and
predatory lending practices used by most automotive dealerships as
standard operating procedures.
