My car-shopping experience is limited to buying one lightly used car after a lot of online research and test driving a total of about 11 cars at 5 local dealerships. Of the five salesmen I talked with, not one was straightforward, and they all stretched the truth somewhat aggressively.
Why should I expect them to be totally honest? They don't get paid to find the best car for me. They get paid to sell me what they have in stock. They have no incentive to tell me that I might really like a competitor's offerings across town.
