Observations from the used car lot

  • The quality of a certain brand used vehicle is inversely proportional to the number of them available for sale.
  • The dealer will tell you domestic cars are of higher quality than imports if that is all he has on the lot.
  • The dealer with both domestic and imports will always agree with the buyer's opinion on which is the higher quality.
  • In Montana there are no dealers that deal only in imports.
  • Being nicely dressed causes the dealer to rush to your side faster than if you are shabbily dressed.
  • On Montana used car lots Fords and Chevy's outnumber all other brands by more than five to one.
  • On the consumer reports best bets list all other brands outnumber Fords and Chevy's by 55 to three.
  • 'city cars' are worth squat as trade ins in Montana.
