Default Did you test drive your V before buying?

Did you test drive your V before buying it? A local Infinti deal has '13 coupe that I'm interested in buying. I stopped by, asked about the car, they asked to see my driver's license, made a copy, and then let me look at the car. When I asked for a test drive they said no test drives on specialty cars without a deal. I'm over 50, and drove my '05 V to the dealer. No way I'm going to negotiate on a mid $30,000 used car with over 50,000 miles without driving it, and there's no reason to give my ID if I'm not driving their car! What was your buying experience?

Tell them to get fucked or ask to speak to the general manager.

I called and did speak to him. He agreed that they shouldn't have copied my license, and stuck with their no driving of "specialty" vehicles policy. No wonder they've had the car for 2 months.

I believe there was a promotion in '09 or '10 where Cadillac offered me $50 to test drive a new one. I knew I wasn't going to buy a new one, so I didn't waste their time.

My wife wants me to get a brand new $50,000 Mustang GT. I hear they absolutely rip, but I love the way my V blends in with the crowd. I've driven my V like a nut for over 10 years without a ticket. Mustang is the poster child for speeding tickets around here.

I was required to show license, proof of insurance, leave the keys to my other vehicle and a credit check before a test drive, and an employee had to ride along ...
