Buying a New Car

This is a how-to, not an announcement. Though that is something that’s interesting, it’s not really in the cards right now.

I actually had the opportunity once to stand at the back of an auto dealership while pretending to read auto brochures and hear the “sales manager” give a couple the once-over. Fabric protection. Rust under-coating. Insurance for XYZ. On and on it went! For some reason, I feel like if it wasn’t so profitable he wouldn’t have been pushing those poor folks so hard.

Some of the YouTube comments are funny… “Why would you not get an after-market warranty?!? It’s a warranty, it’s designed to save you money!” - I can’t decide if that’s from an auto salesman, or someone who doesn’t really understand how warranty and insurance companies make money…
