Ask the average consumer who they distrust the most, and the answer indefinitely comes back the same every time: car salesperson.
These shifty, would be shady persons comb dealerships like they're pacing around a prison, or at least that is the impression most would be buyers like to give as far as their experiences dealing with car dealerships in general and the sales employees specifically.
Almost every person who has purchased a car has the proverbial war story as it relates to being locked in a room until they say "yes" or having their own car keys taken from them and being held hostage so they can test drive any number of cars until they absolutely buy something.
In short, you, as a consumer, want to be certain that your salesperson and where they're working reeks of honesty and being totally up front with anything from costs you might not consider or something as simple as the availability of the vehicle.
The first and most obvious red flag you'll see (and hear) from a car salesperson that isn't the most credible is flat out lying about the car you want. They'll tell you that it might not be available and they'll have to check on it, or perhaps you'll hear something along the lines of the fact that you'll have to pay extra because they don't have it in stock. Both of those statements aren't even close to being true. Car dealerships keep new vehicles in stock and ready to go; anyone who uses those tired lines is trying to up the price because they think you'll pay for a premium.
