The salespersons at dealerships know less about their vehicles than we do. They just know the basic stuff. I found that out when I was buying my Compass.
Isn't that the truth, when I went in with my Caliber to trade in, I was looking at a sweet SRT8 Magnum. The sales guy said "oh yeah, we could probably do up a close deal with these station wagens." I told him, if he could get me the SRT8 for the same price as my SXT caliber, that I would sign on the line without a second thought... I new this guy was brain dead!!
He came back out and said "oh, i guess these things are some sort of supercharged high end cars, so it wouldn't be the same"
As we were leaving I said, well why wouldn't I just be able to get a compass, his reply was, "oh thats a big jeep, wouldnt be the same"
I got a different sales guy and drove away in the compass.
