Sorry kind of long:

With another kid on the way, my wife and I decided to sell our Honda Pilot and buy a Honda Odyssey van. I looked around here and couldn't find exactly what I was looking for in my price range so I headed to Atlanta this morning, cash in hand ready to buy.

Found a couple I wanted to look at and after test driving it, it was the one I wanted, but they wanted about $500 more than I wanted to spend. With that one still in my radar, I went down the road for about 30 minutes and looked at a couple more and realized I needed to go back and buy the original one I looked at.

As soon as I got back to the dealership, the salesman saw me and said "I got bad news". A lady from Memphis was on her way down and had already committed to buying it so its sold. I was sick and couldn't believe I let a could deal get away over $500.

I got back on the hunt and found another dealership about 20 minutes down the road. They had another nice van almost exactly like the one I missed out on. After an hour of back and forth with the sales manager, I bought it, for $700 more than what I could have bought the first one for, and $1200 more than I wanted to pay all together.

2 hour drive home, I walk in the door, show it to my wife and she likes it.

THEN ALL OF THE SUDDEN, THE ORGINAL HONDA DEALERSHIP CALLS AND SAID THE LADY DRIVING ALL THE WAY FROM MEMPHIS HAD TERRIBLE CREDIT AND THEY WOULD LIKE TO SELL ME THE VAN FOR MY ORIGINAL OFFER. SICK!!!!

I learned a lesson though. If you see what you want, for a fair price, don't wait on it.

I believe he was full of it .. I went to buy a car once and someone else was filling out the paperwork for credit/ finance it so I pulled the cash out and the salesman looked at the other guy and said sorry he has cash

Don't think that was the case here because when I went back, I told him I would pay them what they told me their offer was before I left the first time.
