Do you think a dealership is justified in refusing a test drive unless you're willing to sit down and discuss numbers? I ask because I recently was reading this guy's story who was so pissed that he went to a dealership just to test drive a sports car, with no intention of buying it whatsoever, and was told by the dealer that he couldn't take it for a test drive unless he wanted to talk numbers. He says he does this with every sports car that comes out, and hasn't ever seriously considered buying a new car. He admitted being rough on the cars, driving them hard and explaining he "just wanted to get a feel for the car" to the sales guy, like he was serious about buying it. When I was buying my car, I was looking at Mustang GT's and no dealership would let me take one out because so many people were coming in just to try them out with no intention of buying them. Now, for someone in my position, it was frustrating not being able to even drive a car I was considering buying, but I suppose I could have backed out after I went through the trouble of lying to the guy about being set on buying one... At the same time, if I was a dealer trying to sell cars, I would definitely want to discourage guys like this who just bounce around dealerships trying out every fun new car that comes out because it's fun. You should only be test driving things if you have an interest in buying them; those cars still have to be sold after you beat the shit out of them... What do you guys think?
