I remembered how stressful buying a car was for me. Ten years ago, a car salesman even insulted me for not accepting his deal, and he told me why even bothered to try to buy the car I want in the first place. He said I properly fit better with cheaper cars, but I told him I wanted a better deal for the car I was trying to buy. Anyway, the moral of the story was whether you’re right or wrong on wanting to buy a car you want, dealing with a car salesman can sometimes be very stressful for a car buyer.
That car salesman even suggested I should trade in my old car for the newer one, and when I was done with the calculation according to his deal I noticed that the dealership was trying to swallow my old car without crediting much back into the newer car I wanted to buy. Basically, I sold the old car by placing an online classified car ad and bought the new car through the dealership without doing a trade-in deal. The moral of the story continues, it’s rare for you to be lucky to not have to deal with a dealership and car salesmen that would not want to eat you up alive when you’re trying to buy a car.
Anyway, I like any idea of buying a car without the insults and stress, and so I think I wouldn’t mind buying a car through a giant vending machine like the one that is being suggested in the video right after the break.
Although Alibaba’s giant car vending machine idea seems to be futuristic, but I think it’s just a smarter way of repackaging readily available ideas into a smoother car buying operation. If I understand the video correctly, after you collect your car from the giant vending machine you get to test drive it for couple days. Once you commit to buying the car you could just then pop online and finish up the payment process. This way, you cut out the middlemen like some sleazy car salesmen, and your whole car purchasing process might be smoother and more enjoyable.
