SUBSCRIBE HERE!! How do you buy a car from a dealership, with cash, with no credit, with bad credit? Here are the best car buying tips available today! See our latest video "TOP 10 Tips to get the BEST CAR DEAL" (10 best car buying tips / advice) at Are you a savvy car shopper who needs a little car buying advice? Kevin Hunter hosts "The Business Forum Show" outlines the 13 car mistakes to avoid making at the dealership. See the new video on "Getting Pre-Approved on Car Loans!" at

People in the car business who profit from your mistakes by taking advantage of you will rant about things we share here and disagree with the content, but don't be fooled by their rhetoric. A dishonest car salesperson absolutely loves an ignorant car shopper. We will try to help you avoid the common mistakes, and assist you in sorting the facts from the baloney in this business. We profit nothing regardless of what you choose to do, and we don't mind if you choose to not use the information. If you do, you'll find yourself walking away with a much better car deal. If you don't, you don't have much room to complain when this stuff happens.

How do Car Dealers rip you off? This video presents 13 different car buying mistakes that you can't afford to make when car shopping. If you're going to car shop and don't want to be taken advantage of, it's up to you to learn about car salesmen and auto dealerships, and the dirty tricks they play to rip people off. You also need to learn about the scams and inappropriate products sold by both new and used car dealers, and why some things dealers offer should NEVER be purchased. These include things like the theft protection scam, GAP insurance that is sold to consumers who either didn't need it, or could have purchased much cheaper from their own insurance agent, and extended warranties that are often sold to buyers who didn't want them or need them. To make matters worse, there are also thousands of car dealers who employ finance officers that are some of the most unscrupulous people you'll ever meet, willing to tell you any lie they can come up with to sell you everything I've described, and more. The worst ones will even claim your interest rate on your loan is only available if you buy all the added products they are proposing. They claim the 'bank' wants the car protected.... which is BS... On the contrary, the bank wants your loan as small as possible so if they need to repossess the car, they can get their money out of it.

This video was published to help you discover how you can save time and money on your next new or used car purchase by doing your homework first, and then going car shopping as an informed buyer.

Is it unreasonable to expect a little old-fashioned honesty? We don't think so, but we are more than amused by the countless car salespeople or car dealers who contact us and state that we are making a 'small problem' sound far worse than it is. They also tell us the entire video is completely fabricated baloney. Really? Are you kidding us? We know there are honest people in the car business, and we receive positive comments from many of them, but it's definitely a buyer beware world out on the car lot!

For all of you car buyers who are well steeped in reality, if you watched the video "Confessions of a car dealers backroom" you need to see this video. By understanding what mistakes to avoid, you'll not only become a smarter car buyer, but you'll also better understand what not to tell a car dealer when buying a car. It's true that you can play all your cards up front with an honest dealer, but unfortunately, they represent the minority of dealer owners (truly transparent and honest dealers make up about 40% of all dealers), and you are unlikely to know the difference until it's far too late. Be smart, do your homework, and you'll come home with a car deal that's good for you and the dealer. After all, that's what fairness is all about. We don't endorse anyone being ripped off, and that includes some customers who think it's 'justice' to turn tables and try to 'steal' a car from a dealer. If you do stuff like this, that makes you a crook too, doesn't it? When a car dealer loses money on a deal, they just take it from the next unsuspecting person. We don't think your neighbor should have to pay for your car, so we encourage you to be fair and honest. Everything we talk about has to do with fairness and honesty, and that works both ways. Respect the dealers right to make money in your quest to get a fair and honest car deal. It's this kind of attitude by car dealers and consumers alike that will change the car business.

      #MalikCars (#TATA dealers) is cheating the customers by delivering vehicle other than promised vehicle by its sales team. Not only me, they have cheated many as per my observation on facebook and google maps reviews.

      Complaint No. : 90190841282 registered on 4-Feb-2019.

      I will be happy, if TATA Motors take my complaint with high priority and resolve it asap. Call me on 9603919678.

      I purchased TATA Tiago from Malik Cars of Hyderabad.

      #TATAMOTORS should take a strict action of canceling the dealership of such cheaters to safeguard the brand image Indian best brand.

      TATA Motors should improve the CRM to avoid the delay in response and taking care of customers.

      Thank you very much. I was looking at the millions of views my car buying videos have received since I first started publishing them, and realized that if the average car shopper took everything into consideration that I've shared on this video and on my video titled "How to beat the car dealer finance office," they would save anywhere from $2,500-5,000 on their car purchase. So, I did the math. I adds up to well over a billion dollars. I can feel pretty good about that, don't you think? Thanks for your comment!

      my accord almost killed me, braking system failed multiple times. Honda couldn't fix the problem. It has been 2 months and they are on their 4th part replacement. In my opinion dont buy honda and especially their HYBRIDS. I'm WARNING you. costumer serives is terrible, no one gets back to you, I have went back and forth with the head office and dealer ship. This is not how I imagined my new car Experience. I wish I went with the Toyota my second option at the time. Honda has no reliability***

      Glad to know I followed virtually all the advice given here, but I still cringe when I think about buying my last car and getting to the Finance Manager's office...sure enough, he turned out to be the biggest a-hole of the group I had to deal with at the dealership. No, I don't want gap insurance. No, I don't want dealer financing. No, I don't want to upgrade my floor mats. No, I don't want window etching.....on and on and on....finally I told him if he tried to sell me one more thing I was going to walk. Is there ANY way to avoid the Finance Manager altogether in buying a car that is financed through your own lender? That's the part I absolutely abhor when buying a car.

      The finance manager is usually the one with the insurance license, which is necessary to legally sell insurance, and that's exactly what an extended warranty is, so they're always going to have you wind up with the finance manager at some point near the end of the sale, even if you come in with a cashier's check from your local bank for the full, negotiated price and have already decided to purchase an extended warranty and you aren't going to buy anything else.

      Hi potential Honda Pilot owners, I want to post this so you are aware of the problems I have with my 2019 Pilot. It usually begins with the radio/speakers making a shorting/crackling sound especially when I would hit a bump and then eventually the 'entertainment' screen goes dead. My Instrument panel also went dead several times and I caught it on video(link posted below). Watch videos I posted in order, starting with 1A to understand what happens first. You need to listen loudly to hear the shorting/crackling sound. I have been on sites like Piloteers and Youtube and there are many posts with screen problems. My problem starts with the crackling/static/shorting sounds through the speakers EVEN IF the radio is turned OFF. It just deteriorates from there and then the screen goes dead. It usually reboots, sometimes several times in a row. On Jan 8, 2019 it did not come back on even after I stopped the Pilot, turned it off, and restarted (as seen on the last video). I purchased the Pilot in October 2018, I have had it for a total of 3 months. This is the second time it goes in for this problem. This time Honda has had it for 3 weeks. I just want to add I love the Pilot, but unfortunately I've come to realize lemons do exist and I bought one.
      I am really disheartened by these problems. I bought a brand new Honda because of it's reputation for carefree reliability, I purchased a fully loaded top of the line $70000 Honda Pilot Touring so I wouldn't have to deal with problems for many years to come.

      Watch the videos in order to understand what happens:

      You're right. The price of the car is what a buyer is willing to write a check for, or sign the bottom line of a finance document for. Well informed buyers do their homework, know what any vehicle is worth that they are considering, and are willing to pay a price they have determined is fair. That price, then, is what the market will bear.
