    Holy smokes.
    Good for you. Every time I've screwed up the resolve to go to a car deal - used or new or whatever - I've come away with a terrible experience. All my latest vehicles (for about 15 years) were purchased through private individuals. I just don't put up with the BS and can't stomach the games most dealerships and salespeople tend to play.

    i went in with an open mind and felt like i had nothing to lose by talking to them. It chose to just have fun with it and did just that. They did do the typical hold on let me talk to my manager a couple times to "work with me" but in the end we were just way too far apart.

    thinking about taking every dollar i have and buying lotto tickets. Ill either end up in a long horn Ram or giving my toaster swimming lessons in my bathtub.

    My last truck was all internet. Went to the dealer to price a truck and spec it out to get a price.
    Once I did, the sales guy said they don't discount. MSRP is what they get and they sell every one they get.
    I sent emails to every Toyota dealership in the state with the specs and started working them against each other.
    I ended up buying from the guy that said they don't discount many thousand dollars cheaper.
    Went to the dealership one time, to spec out and then went back to pick up the vehicle.
    Zero interface with sales people.

    It was at least $60k. I cant remember for sure though. It was the only 4 door dually with an aisin transmission that was NOT a Laramie or long horn though so I knew it was the only one anywhere near my budget.

    All in, or all out LOL

    The 2011 we got back in Oct, nickel and dimed us like crazy the couple of months. Cant remember what the first thing to go wrong was but the second thing was was the Fuel filter started leaking, third thing was the other fuel filter (Two weeks about at that) then the exhaust sensor went out (not the oxygen sensor, the other one. Cant remember the name)
