NEWS RELEASE: Retired Car Salesman Launches ‘Car Buying in the New Economy’ Consumer Education Campaign

Thirty-year car selling veteran and author of Inside the Minds of Car Dealers – How to Buy Your Next Car without Fear, Ray Lopez launches consumer awareness campaign to teach savings tactics, and confident car buying practices. Read the full article here.


My personal review:  I actually found Inside the Minds of Car Dealers to be an very interesting and informative read.
118 pages, consisting of 23 chapters. Chapters are all short, sweet, and to the point.
I love how Ray calls himself a "schmuck" throughout the book. And, because of being a schmuck for 30 years, he was prompted to write this book and let us all in on the car salesman "secrets".
Some of the things he mentions throughout the books you've heard for years about a car salesman. Some of those things you think have only just been made up and portrayed in the movies to make them look bad. Bad's not just in the movies.
I found the information on all of the information you can find online to be very interesting. I had no idea there was so much information to be found least not free.
I can now say that if and when I am ready and able to go to a car lot and buy a vehicle, I will be prepared before going! Thanks Ray for all the great advice.

Since my blog deals a lot with coupons and savings, I asked Ray to include answers to questions comparing buying a car to using coupons. Here are the questions and the answers:
