I had a dealer try to not fill up,the tank on a new purchase of a car.Patrick, I mean even enough petrol to get you to the nearest petrol station.
As in "Now that you have bought the car, Sir, would you like to buy the optional wheels and tyres for it?".
I get very tired of the constant moral short changing that has become a seemingly accepted part of everyday life.
Having paid (say) $40,000 for a new vehicle, is it really too much to expect it to have a full petrol tank?
Told the salesperson - straight up, I walk out and go somewhere else if that car doesn’t have a full tank. During test drive it was on E.
He talked to the manager and they told him that is not their policy and they won’t fill it up.
He then said “ let’s go on another test drive so I can show you some things about the car you may not know “. He had me drive right to a gas station and fill up the tank with his own money. At the time, a tank of gas was $20.
He saved the sale and his commission. Funny how that dealership almost lost a $25,000 sale over $20.
