For Boston news junkies and for anyone looking to stay up today and with the latest in Boston and national politics anywhere you take your hardcore android. Welcome to back to the -- guys radio show. I'm still not a Jewish and I'm -- Messina and winning I like our guys. The car guys a radio show the website -- the car guys website dot com the phone numbers 330 car guys that's 330227. 4897. -- I wanna start with you let's let's talk about. Some of the reasons you think you've heard or and he you can. Hypothesize why people. Despise the traditional car shopping experience and how the car guys differ from that. Well like I got a phone call this week as a matter of fact that it actually was right after the radio show that we did last week. And it was a customer who was actually looking to buy a car. And are they actually listen to our show and were really. Really pleased yes that's somebody who would talk about getting the Mercado was sort of normal. What happens as you go and they show roaming and you do you get there and -- legal action like Paramus. And basically be you know they wanna get all your information. And you know they wanted to basically take your temperature and they give you colonoscopy. And then what should -- without. Then do we -- to the process of trying to look at cars but when you get onto a vehicle. And US and the price nobody seems to -- know what the prices of the car. They have to check with the manager and then the manages gonna check -- his manager and that's the other reason. Yeah now what they do was it did basically they try to get more information on the customers receive home much but Cust who actually pay for that cap. And it's a horrible thing because it's been going on for a million years. There are some places obviously do have that -- one price system where basically put a number on the car and that's what you pay for there's no negotiation. Which you know is not a bad thing it actually but again you're gonna have. Some pesky salesman it's gonna drive you nuts probably and you know just people be prepared to that if you have a trade in. They gonna ask you beginning gonna tell you they wanna look at that tree your trade in -- taking keys. And your car and you keys will be amongst the missing. And then when you wanna leave you probably can't leave because they can't find the keys -- not sure we think the used car manager hasn't. And basically what they're trying to Tuesday trying to Wear you down. They wanna -- you down Wear you down until you say OK I give way to wayside let me get idea that's the only -- in the united here's a five by a -- So Cokie -- week we go against that comes complete traditional way of thinking and we don't we -- just become your friend. And haven't an ongoing relationship afterwards. That's how we get our referrals so that's that's how we wanna do businessmen and. And as crazy as crazy as that sounds I'm sure there are many many people many many listeners out there right now. Who have experience. Just that situation. And yeah I mean we've we cannot. -- exaggerated in some places but -- -- and as a fact that's what happens they get to win them. They show you the automobile. Differences if you buy any used automobile unfortunately the -- doesn't really know all about that cut they don't they don't want him to know about that cab because. If you if he knows about it and he may have a little bit of a conscience and and not want to us. I hesitate to sign in that vehicle so lest the salesman knows about it the better rush he is making them better able to solitude. -- that brings up other. Sources that that people use because -- some people feel that way that the salesman doesn't know enough about the car. -- won't tell you the truth about the -- they go to the current facts or the auto check thing or some other automobile reporting company. This got to be some you know pros and cons to -- some myths about how well these things work. Well we've mentioned this and in the past programs and -- facts I feel is a great idea. If everybody did what they were supposed to do reported with this supposed to report to contracts cut taxes dynamite. But unfortunately. It doesn't happen that way in this and this world. With if you have an automobile that you have finally suffered three years and you have the sky you're in here into -- free union a major accident. Chicago's back to the original deal -- at least that -- -- he gives you something to use the repeal the kind give it back to you. And in two years from then. You bring the cup back to renew Leo leasing give another vehicle well that kind of -- you had that was in a major accident. Stimulus fifth -- up clean them up put it out -- -- And then somebody's gonna come along disinterested and had no salesman is gonna try to sell America. And do look at it looks good smells good sounds good to know the -- system in an accident and the -- who say don't want. The best way to tell let's pull a -- facts and take a look at it. And they'll pull -- -- effects of course the accident was not reported. And to -- in automobiles mostly automobiles manufactured today a good -- will affect the frame of the continent do you know bodies. And -- if that happens well. Then you can have a problem with that vehicle after a while. And it's and it could be very costly and it's it's not what Japan for you pay for a the good automobile in this is what we do and then we checked those close things out to make sure that -- beginning with Japan fought. Can have having the excuse me for interrupting you but that's okay I'm used to it. I thought I actually. I know that a lot of the a lot of people think that they that car. Has never been an accident but bought it second hand or whatnot. And a lot of times I'll get to their home or not there was traded into me. Analysts say. As you -- a bit and an accident that you could recall and they say no but we know we never we bought it used. We've got to from the new car dealer down the road or whatnot and and it's it's never been an accident so that I you know -- interest you pay me throughout. And I walk around the car and -- little investigating and knife show them where you know to a three panels a workbook painted in not only that but. I'll probably do they could have been some damage. Behind. What you see on the exterior. So when that happens you know people get really frustrated because they that they trusted. The places they bought that cap but again you know the salesperson. Probably never knew that -- was an accident. And is so therefore it just keeps going down the line and you know basically. It's too bad because you paid for a cut it wasn't an accident basically and you know we try to make the make this. Transaction much more transparent. You know I don't have a problem with -- somebody says to me listen I don't care -- a couple -- have been painted on the -- As long as it wasn't in the major accident everything and I can basically tell them listen these panels of the -- off the -- so maybe had a couple of scratches -- the effects of and that's fine but you know. Beyond that I mean if -- something was in a train -- and welded back together you know I wanna be able to all my customer listen I don't think we should but that's when because. I know what's gonna happen later on life you're going to be called me up of all kinds of electrical issues and so forth and so on when they try to -- the wires together. -- more than with a crimping tool whatnot so it is these things all make a difference later on we just had a customer who actually. Had purchased a vehicle. She wanted to get the cheapest car for her son and she thought she was doing the right -- so she's trying to save money. And of course you know what happens tomorrow -- it's our show so what's what happened basically what she bought this vehicle. She bought it from someplace in New Hampshire and when she bought the car. She knew there was a salvage car and they choose gonna have to get some work done to it in order to. Get it to inspected by the registry of motor vehicles so that would have what they call reconstructed title. And then they would then they would go on from there and and just make it to make the currency is aesthetically nice as they possibly could for this son. Well what happens is she's thinking that she's gonna have to spend maybe another 15100 bucks. Two to bring it up to stuff and it turns out after she spent 101000 dollars. The guy still is not it really great country -- Georgia and just she just feels. Very. Well taken but it in essence you know it's the buyer -- And in New Hampshire and as soon as this criticism and well not necessarily all the time but yes they can sell it as is not okay Massachusetts. We have to abide by the -- masks code which it has eleven law. And it there are no hazardous. In sales in Massachusetts. Virginia -- the car guys a radio show the website is the car guys Webb site dot com you can give them call at 330 car guys that's 330227. 4897. And you mentioned buyer beware and and then. I'm just being careful what year. What you're getting and that brings me the finger and a half I've been on US -- talk to guys they haven't seen anything like crazy president's state sales are you throwing your crazy. You know once in a lifetime monsters. Talk about some of those misleading kind of sales advertisements that happened on television always around presidents say always around certain holidays. Or what is up with all the with all those -- and why don't you partake in and. And those things. Well tonight my dad go bishop show so so basically this is a couple of things that they do that I've done all the time and have been done. And when -- attorney general. Gets all the some of these people some times they they catch him in the act and they put him out of business solely. Are they try to correct them but basically what happens is you get a lot of big switch so what happens is let's say for instance you gonna buy a Nissan Altima and let's say the average price in this particular year car with this many miles is like 151000 dollars so. So basically what they -- was still send up prior to the auction to buy one and it's a real crap box. And this this vehicle would be much cheaper so they made by it and be able to advertise it for 11995. So what they'll do is they'll say. Whatever year that carries that make you model. From 11995. So what happens is next he went by the 11995. -- because every other deal hasn't for 151000. You get to the dealership. And the one of two things to you this films -- so that Kyle was sold the we have some -- here they're all 151000. Or. And they'll actually show -- the current and embarrass themselves because basically he would never buy that -- was probably. Smoked in the might have burned holes might have dense. You know -- smoked and meaning smoked in boy some a sober person it. Smoke cigars OC guys. That was in the car that may have -- as -- -- cars on fire it's all don't go to don't look so good well that could be too but at the. Because usually it's a funny thing about when people -- security inside because they don't secure the outside of the kind and they definitely don't take care of the mechanical stuff from the kind of salt. And and you can tell when you when you get a live vehicle -- business it's supposed to be here you you look in the and nooks and crannies and the move a little spaces with a deal liver isn't and that's filled would do it and tobacco or whatever whenever there's. The cow wasn't really. She wasn't taking care and so like bill says if they don't take care of the they basically can live -- sometimes sixteen hours a day. Information think they take care of mechanically do you know how to say that -- mind. But but. There is that could have I don't know if it's a good thing but. You go to a car dealership where you go to the used car lot tipped to get a cannot an automobile and this financing available. What about the car guys -- we have awesome financing. In the best spot about a financing as we don't make any money about it. So what do you mean by that and really really that's the worst thing. Yeah they're trying to hold on our new equipment and enough from the cat all right I -- -- -- you don't make money off to the car dealers. How does that work what happens is let's just say for instance you had a tirade of one point 99%. And you get a customer comes in and he's probably -- savvy about you know financing on mobile in the other thing is because the rates have come down so much. They used to paying you know 567%. Maybe in the last -- they bought 73 years ago when that was probably a good grade but now because the rates come down so much. These guys erection hit -- come up to a three points so that one point 99 becomes three point 99 and guess who wins that difference between that the dealership. So they actually get paid by the banks. Okay they get. What they call points. And they'll they'll markup that -- so in other words let's say you had a 20000 dollar car. And that you could you could. Are fighting -- at one point 99 but you sold it to the customer. And you good three point 99% you're gonna get 2%. Which is basically half of the interest of all and then its -- its considerable can be thousands of dollars. Over the period of 3456. Years depending on what the immunization schedule is so you have. What you've got a three year -- -- for you unified view alone and so forth and so on. But the longer you have that loan the more Christine we're OK Alaska and bottom line is a small morning that the dealership makes and in fact sometimes. They don't even care about making any money on the -- that they so they just wanted to fighting as a friend you know that's it's a big hits a big profits -- -- for them but we have financing available. If fury and a credit person who pays all the bills and has an excellent credit squad. We have rates as low as one point 99% right now. On one late model used vehicles. And we've agreed terms we can go as long as 72 months not a problem always go -- as you want is no prepayment penalties and only about loans. And the majority of them we send to a credit union and the credit unions basically. Are owned by the members so you've become a member of the credit union. Basically you're in order of the -- -- you view you get all -- all the trucks of that -- Alfred Figueroa the captain -- And we also have we also have folks who have. Less than great credit in those people. We wanna help them too because listen somebody could have been out of a job for a year they may have had a medical issue. Whatever it may be but the bottom line is they're critic -- goofed up and listen we wanna try to rehabilitate those people. Rehabilitate their credit. In and get them back on top to get their credit rating rate back up. The rates -- a little bit higher obviously than the -- than the a credit people but. The fact of the matter is we do have the financing available and we can do miracles for people because of that a lot of people tell me. You can't get refinanced I know I can't get financed and believe it or not I have a lot of resources. And somehow we try to find a way the important feature would be you've got some income. Okay that we can prove prefer -- and I have some that we don't even have to prove if depending upon the situation. But the bottom line is you -- have some income and the other thing is. The more money that you bring to the plate prison deposit on the cars down payment. That also works a lot because today is looking at the equity position in the vehicle when you have poor credit. Still looking at the equity in the vehicle when you have great credit they could care less about the vehicle -- buying the person they're buying the credit. So that that's what's important but we do have we have credit for everybody. Affordable. Credit for everybody to.

Or the car that's being treated him shore. Tell me that the kind of things the methods you can do to prolong the life of your car how do you clean keep it in tip top shape especially when. And I think you mentioned before sometimes you spend 3456. Hours a day and -- how do you keep that -- up to an end and that type of pristine conditions well. New to us you know can stand -- basically one of the easiest things to do. -- keep because clean. Why should especially in the wintertime. Keep that's alternate roads in London call that don't lose what contaminants. The automobile. I also don't forget to the end to carry children I was gonna say and sometimes people don't pick event. But the undercarriage is actually the filter is finally automobile that. There has all the salt and sand and and contaminants and it isn't and when you those who have the good guy why shouldn't we have quite a few. They can do really on the -- by. The other thing I wanted to mention Joseph not to interrupt you but. I always tell all my clients as far as he exterior in the aesthetics goes. That they should probably get their cut detailed twice a year once in the spring so it's beautiful from the spring Osama. And then once in the fall salute if he gets a nice wax on it so that you know we can protect. DVR recordings of the car get protected and you know you'll -- last long lot longer because you'll have a good not only -- -- but you know a good -- killing because this way here. They basically -- but few cars and they'll take it down hole a notch and then they'll actually put some wax on it too cute and nice protective sealant. And that really helps to -- A lot and no we we. Two in the future you'll we have recommendations food. Some of my network -- is that do that particular worked -- now we also have to remember. We've that we've got to. Take -- in free oil changes. Troll does not only in the oil filter. We have -- -- -- -- under the hood we have filters. Cabin filters that it keep the is nice and fresh and clean and it's and me on the inside. From. Chick to ease the pressure you tie is to make sure you guys -- inflated properly because that has an effect. Not only on the where the title which you very concerned about. But also lie and die in the U2 can affect gas mileage so you can -- Australia as well as a lot capsule and I'm sure you can come up with a few other things that we have to look for a. Hubble Hubble access and I Harry heard someone say that seven day weather is on the TV or in casual conversation hair alive. My check engine light came on no big deal it always comes on. And no driver now for months with their check engine light on thinking it's just under the wire -- short and that's why I came on okay well -- as a lot of reasons why check engine light can come on. It can be as simple as she didn't. Put your gas cap back on properly. Or you didn't put you guessed it cap back on then all that's that's called the lodge he got cold and basically. There are a lot of those hope did because what happens is you go to the gas station you know it could be really hot out. You might leave your car running though you're not supposed to and if you do that. Oftentimes. That will -- going you check engine light to you have to gulf may have to have go four or five drives circles as much as maybe 200 miles. Before LA will come off by itself now assuming that it does not come off by itself. Now we have other things it could be -- we could have. He can be oxygen sensors catalytic converter. They could be just as a multitude of different things all kinds of senses and you kind of now and the important things you go to a technician. Who doesn't just start changing parts because. He has a 200 dollar skin from AutoZone. That basically only does one thing reads codes because there's no diagnostic. Probability with that particular she -- using. Some of these machines can cost up to 30000 dollars or more. And we're finding that he'll even at that point there are still you know three -- four. Methods to diagnosing the exact problem even though it trips a certain code. He mean I'd be just as simple as she's changing that's part. They could be a -- ground they could be a faulty wires that could be a wise it's. It's this crimped -- come apart and start getting a great signal all the time sometimes it gets a good signal sometimes it doesn't. They could be a myriad of different things and it's so important to go to old guy. Who is it true diagnosed this year and who can actually get in there and figure out what part it is that you need. And replace that peace and if you knowing that. By him replace that piece that he covers actually fixed as opposed to. Well I changed by -- oxygen said so last week and now this week that told me that I need something else and then they need something else that's what they call upon exchange. Basically that person has. Inferior. Testing equipment. And he can't -- cannot get the job that he doesn't know what the real problem is so we just us throwing paparazzi car. And the next thing you know he could be spending thousands of dollars trying to fix a problem of maybe could've been fixed for a hundred rolls of 200 people. He's he's trying to solve the problem not true. It's a process of elimination preference which is ridiculous and the other thing is you just don't want to have somebody put the lie you know. So you don't see it any longer and you're right that is the case it's gonna talk that's gone I guarantee you if that's the teachers put a little black paints a little like this that I don't take the ball well but you wanna do the right thing. Is that you can't get inspection sticker that's the problem. In Massachusetts. In New Hampshire. And in most states you cannot get an inspection sticker if that check engine light is on. You got to alleviate the problem before them my recommendation is if you live in Massachusetts. We we have several. Excellent network providers who have the ability to check these things out. And they are approved by the registry of motor vehicles as any enhanced emissions. Technicians. And that's very important because even if you go to an inspection station. We can get an inspection sticker that does not mean that they are enhanced. Emissions technicians OK to -- it's very very important that they might not be able to complete the task to make your cost. Respectable. So that you get a rejection sticker which is actually good for sixty days but you know you play with fire I mean you know who needs to get the tickets without him. It's it's just it's -- you wanna do the right thing. Right if you wanna do the right things go to waste time. He's everything in my career Carlin money you have you're wasting time and money time is money and -- has got some money so we know this is very important. We we can provide you with a -- great list if you need somebody in your area. Certainly give us a call we'd like to help you with and don't think the economy needs to be condemned just because the check engine light so. This up and want to touch panel are running out of time mulling a couple minutes left but. Four wheel drive where will all will this well that where one will last will -- -- was the difference between all of these. We'll -- XOK well let's that I always. With with four wheel drive for us. So four wheel drive. Is excellent in the snow. You use it you can you can take it out of four wheel drive imported into wheel drive we've reported higher low typically. And so he gives you fumble a bunch of different functions the thing is the gas mileage when you have to four wheel drive is obviously more. And even when you're into wheel drive. If it's a four wheel drive vehicle. That seemed to wheel drive it's probably -- utilized a little bit more gas. Than an actual just to wheel drive vehicle. But. Then you get the all wheel drive -- all wheel drive 'cause are extremely safe because they have all wheel drive which means -- all wheel drive all the time. Ends. There are some some Smart cars though there what I say that. They detect certain situations and distraction becomes even if you grade out -- -- all wheel drive vehicle. And sometimes they're almost in a mall was there are still likely to wheel drive. And get in here it's under certain conditions or road conditions when he gets slippery or whatnot. But the bottom line is how all wheel drive is it is a very very safe mode. Is it more expensive because you can only use a little bit more guests. But then you can move down to the front wheel drive cars which which are also pretty good the snowed in on his good news in all wheel drive coveted not bad. And those -- those of great to drive well you can get those civilians or you know even an issue be -- to wheel drive. So mom or front wheel drive so that those are great guys but they need to move into the rear wheel drive cousins are. More in our area more for some time car. The way we grew up we only had rear wheel drive cars for a long time and things. Until -- drought is probably introduced withdrawals will -- -- not only take in 1966. And so after that Cadillac got a and then. We actually had done so a lot of import started to started to pick it up. But I think that. We will drive 'cause have slowly been. Sort of being mixed out of the market and with. With the advent of the all wheel drive a lot of two wheel drive vehicles now have deal -- you have the option of buying it can be easy to wheel drive. Are all wheel drive and so therefore around. That would be good way to go if you could. Move up to the all wheel drive. In the city of champions we're celebrating. Our Boston we are and AM succeeding. WRKO.

Welcome back to the card guys' radio show on bill puppet George then I'm Joan Messina and we the sky -- This is our guys' radio show the website is the car guys website dot com in phone numbers 330 car guys. 3302274897. During the break we're talking to vote. The best time to buy a car and I was wondering if they were truly is a good time. To buy the right car for example and now we know if you can compare the two Benet. I'd buy it in August because it's not his expenses is buying it the day before the blizzard in December. Two cars. Are they marketed that way we should buy a Porsche for example in December of because it's cold -- no one's buying them as opposed spying in July. Well let me say this are we getting sports guys convertibles. First of all from the we live in a -- and a part of the United States where. The the values really do change quite a bit between summer winter time but there are a lot of areas in the country. Then it's not really -- doesn't really matter because they're sunny and -- all yearlong. So. Thinking thinking ahead though regarding this New England area. I would say most most of the time you have to think about it is this these deals are always thinking approximately sixty days ninety days ahead. -- going to be with this terrified by it now. Sixty days or ninety days from now when Padres have to either paid off for a cell and whatnot. -- get rid of it. So. With that in mind. I would say if you were trying to buy sports car or convertible. I would be looking to buy that cast sometime between September 15. And December 15 because after December 15 basically. We go through -- a little spot with a call Christmas holidays and I knew he has a right after that. All the prices start to race. And they could go up pretty quickly because they're all thinking about that spring time. Rush. When the like for instance the tax money comes back the weather gets nice people have had cabin fever all winter in the wanna. They wanna say you know what I've had enough of this winter and I think I'm gonna get a convertible this year or sports car or something that makes me happy. And and so that makes that price go up very quickly. Going forward even though it's still really call vote in January and February. It's -- it's probably already impacted the market to fit the fact we've gone past January 1. And going forward. Realistically probably. I mean April me. Would be the height of the season for any sports car convertible as opposed to say June July or August. Just because. We'll probably starting to head out of the market at that point. And so I tell most people of their interest in doing something we should start looking for that car in the fall. It. What about times -- days. At all. Not really I don't I don't think so I mean I think you know basically. The time of the day doesn't really matter of I think you know if you look control with the car. We don't all wheel drive car already. Are an issue -- with four wheel drive or all wheel drive. Those are always seem to be a little cheaper in the summertime in the as you start to approach the fall because. People start thinking oh boy pretty soon it's gonna stole all I have to have my four wheel drive or all wheel drive vehicle. I don't let me jump in there with us. Now I can go online by then right because if I wanna -- the Porsche in. August but I wanna buy from cold climate can go online and buy it from Alaska or some crazy. Cold place and have it shipped over right and you really insure you -- coastal and -- that at the. Well. There are other than dealer sites there other. Say it's on line that you can buy from new owner. And then -- the -- three or four real popular ones but unfortunately what's happening is there's a lot of fraud going on. And we had the opportunity we're we have a customer that was looking to further in 1964 attend the birth. Convertible preferably. Then I found one and it was listed of Sarasota Florida. So I got in touch with the it was there was an individual. Personal purchase. Here in touch with these quickly you with the Sala. And he was selling the vehicles -- 151000. Dollars. And I said -- take a look at this vehicle. 151000. Dollars this guy is like twenty. He's fifteen to 20000 dollars away from the market value of this kind this -- -- with 3035000. Dollars. I mean it was in perfect condition. Had a tunnel cover and a common -- -- was read what why didn't you -- leather interior. And then Kelsey Hayes will -- that the spoke wheels and I think basically with a guy did was he he got some pitches. Probably went to a a real auction like a I mean -- -- Miller roe went to a Barrett Jackson was something. And -- took some photographs of this vehicle owner there was in impeccable shape and probably -- Anywhere from forty to 60000 dollars. Anybody knowing him on a mobile world would've broken this thing is. And put the hit millions in their pocket to to get the money because this guy was definitely. So I suggest to be sent to run him and I'm going to be my wanted to play games with this guy. Because if it turned out to be legitimate and I mean it was a -- of the century. They would familiarize yourself with the customer positively unbelievable so I didn't touch -- and -- tells me about sending him the check. For 151000 dollars and NIC Harris in California civil. -- advertising about a far -- in California he's a well we had a bio in California we've we've we've put the Cairo instead of they. Car care costs contained -- -- Kerry we gather in the middle container we shifted and the pitch to leave the deal fell true. But we did manage to get 5500. Dollars from him that paid for the shipping and everything so we will ship this guy do you for nothing. You anything you have to pay us for the past 151000 -- -- gonna -- reflect great idea to a -- got shipping yeah. Like he was said the mere newspaper right exactly and if so. But he says we can chip and up to you and downwind when when we get to check it has to be certified check -- We get the money proving. Then you can open that contain it will release the containers do. I should release his -- tin container has never been opened the Kyra is India but as soon as we get the money you who. You know you you'll be able to see the -- so I said OK I'm done send near the checked. And they call me a week ladies today I never got that check guys that I never got the guy. And so. There was I tell you -- the men and who insisted -- out to be a -- who is who is just 100% products that sounds like it's a little crazy online tricks but what about unreal life when you go to dealership of their any. Sales tricks are. Things national gulf war. Well I believe if they may you know -- you mean if you actually go into a dealership pre sit down rent a contract and all the paperwork. I can't see them doing anything. I -- handed. That you know I mean this employee -- -- -- tactics or turn things they get him pressure you into buying something maybe. Well I think that you know I mean in the past I've seen how all kinds of little tricks how -- you know what they advertise one Karen then when you get there. They show you a completely different cover it. You know you think it might be the same cap because. We may bring in the same color or whatnot but I always tell people that. You know make sure if you gonna do something like that the rate of then number -- of the car so that they can double check that that's the same cut that they actually. Look at because a lot of times they'll do the little switch. And and that can be devastating. So you know to a -- I mean you know. It's -- horrible thing to go up there and you know you looking at this weight with black leather interior of whatever kind of -- -- is. And you know you get there and you think in the that's the paranoia -- -- I thought that I had 45000 miles good 55 vote you know. Or whatnot and you know they they think all customers a stupid. And the bottom line is you know a lot of customers -- very well educated and you know have really thought -- we'll do what I do and so forth and so on so. No we appreciate seeing seeing those people you know when they call us because there's just tired of going for all of rigmarole of the go through when you go to the dealership.
