I hate buying new cars. It always takes too long and haggling over price is a pain. Having said that, this was by far the worst buying experience I've ever had. My wife wanted a new / small car that got great gas mileage. We went to Apple Ford since it was close and we were just "looking". She test drove a car and just loved it. We left the dealership after talking to a salesman with the intention of shopping around a little before making a final purchase. The salesman called us numerous times and stated he would give us a great deal on the car if we came back. After taking it over with my wife we decided to go back and make a deal. The first deal they offered use was a joke. List price on the car and the trade offer was even worse. They even tried to double charge us for the $795 delivery / destination charge. 3 hours later we finally got the price down to a figure (with the trade) we could accept. As far as the trade goes the sales manager told me since my trade had over 100,000 miles he could not sell it on his lot, that he would wholesale the car and most likely just break even. That was another lie since they did list it on the website for sale at a much higher price than he said he expected to sell if for. I should have shopped around more before buying.
