Now that I have forced myself to "relax" a little and enjoy my new LR3, I gotta tell you a fast story that happened to me. In 2002, I was trying to decide if I wanted a new Chevy pick-up truck, or if I wanted the Dodge Ram. I finally decided on the Chevy and spent several hours negotiating a VERY sweet deal on a loaded 1500. After we shook hands I was escorted to the closer, who handed me the "usual" stack of papers to sign.
I carefully read each document before I signed and as I started getting closer to the middle of the stack I could see the "closer" start to lick his lips nervously.
There it was; a $17,000.00 promisory note that said after paying on the truck for three years, I would then owe a balloon payment of $17,000.00.
I asked "What the hell is this?"
The closer said (trying to sound self assured) "It is a GM "Smart Buy.""
I expressed that it did not seem so "smart" to me, that the salesman never told me about this, and DEMANDED my original deal.
After going back and forth with the salesman and the closer, the general manager FINALLY walked into the room. I immediately demanded to know why I was being ripped off.
The manager said (with a smirk), "You didn't REALLY think you were getting the truck for those numbers, did you?"
I walked out, drove down the road, and bought the Ram.
Great truck. I still own it...
