Dealership Lies or Truth

I was at the local dealership and inquireing when they would be getting the 2011 F150's, and asked about the Engine and options that could be availalbe.

They said "There will be no changes to the 2011 F150's in Engine Size or options compared to the 2010 F150"

Is this a lie so they can sell an 2010

cheers

Hard to tell, could be they just forgot to throw in the old "To the best of our knowledge....."???

Kind of funny, but I find that most times going into the dealership I seem to know more of what's going on than the salesmen do. Not that I'm any better than anyone else, but typical guys that join forums like this are pretty well informed with what's going on with their model of truck, mostly due to the information that is found.....on forums like this!!

Salesmen have to know what's current with the whole model line, as they need to sell to a large demographic, so chances are they may not be up on what's coming down the pipe. Case in point, I walked into dealer for service the other day and started chatting with one salesman about the 2012 Boss 302 Mustang that's recently been announced by Ford no less. He had no idea!!!

Do you figure it would make any difference if you went to another dealership and asked the same questions?

Maybe you need to switch dealerships and find one that's not into playing games?

Exactly.. I'd be dealing with a different salesmen at the least if not a different dealership..

If someone sells Car and Tucks then they should know what is going on with the product line. There is know excuse for not knowing.

The salesman could just be to stupid to look up this information or yes he was lying to move what he has on the lot.
