I do however, work for an organization that can and will provide me with the reality of any given situation from the manufacturing side of things. On that note, I have not seen or heard of any oil leak issue and by reviewing the 3.8 tech adaptation, I can't see where one would develop (to the point where production would be halted).
Yeah - there are definitely some good salespeople out there - looks like you're one of them.
I have noticed over the past 10 years or so that salespeople are overall getting a bit less pushy and are generally slightly better informed. I think that is due to the advent of the internet where a potential customer can fairly easily gather a ton of information about the car they are looking to buy - keeps the sales staff on their toes. From what I've seen the manufacturer and dealerships only do so much to educate sales staff. If you really want to get informed you've got to do it on your own, which I 'm sure makes you better at your job and leads to increased sales and return customers.
Thanks again for the info! This is in another thread, but do you happen to have access to power curves for the 3.8 and the 4.0?
