Buying a Car

I just bought a new car. It’s a 2005 Kia Spectra5 with 19,000 miles. I have pretty bad credit because of some dumb decisions when I was right out of college.

With that, the credit companies feel free to rake me over the coals. It’s their perogative in the free market, I suppose.

For all the recent chatter about the consumer being empowered by the web and car buying becoming a buyer’s transaction, I still feel like I just got done filming my first movie with Jeff Stryker. What would it take to make car buying as good and easy an experience as buying a book from Amazon?

  1. I work in the marketing business…and yes, the experience is terrible. Although the manufacturers realize this, they continue to support the practice.

    I think the internet will eventually take you to a place whereby you fill out your request, options, and it will be built similar to a dell computer…to your specs.

    Once consumers get a taste for this, it will force the manufacturer to do business this way, and it will take away that “ill” experience that comes with having to purchase through negotiation.
