My favorite expirence was when I stopped at Chevy dealer. (It was at a friends request.) The guy tried to sell me a new Silverado. (I couldnt stand the cabin, just awful.). But I let him make his pitch.
Now the first sentence out of my mouth following I'm in the market for a pickup was...."I tow a 6800lb trailer."
"Oh this will tow anything you've got."
"Okay sounds good... What's the tow rating?"
"Oh its up there... It'll pull what you've got."
"What's the Axel ratio? How about the payload?"
"I don't know off hand but donr worry your gonna love it!"
After he figured out I wasn't moving that truck one inch without seeing some specs and that I didn't give a load of horse crap about his talk of best in class fuel economy.
We walked inside with the specs (I'd found on the door sticker and window paperwork.). The tow rating was a laughable 4500-wish lbs. And after hearing all of this the guy was still trying to sell it...
