I went out to get Lunch today, on the way I took a stop at the local Ford dealer, Felt like test driving a new Ranger. I talked to the salesman about a new Ranger, told him about my "new job" and how I need a new truck and asked about a test drive. He took one look at me told me we need to fill out a Credit app first. And thats about as far as I got with that:D

Any Ideas on what to say to these ppl to get a test drive???

Credit app for a test drive? Bulldink.

"Hi. I'm interested in a new Ranger. I'd like to drive this one."

Find another dealer. And shut up about the 'new job.'

credit apps are just another way for dealers to get your information so they can contact you and get you in on an appointment o buy.

Yeah that's a bunch of bull. Hell, one salesman I talked to ran inside, tossed me the keys and said "Have fun!". I did.

He probably knew you were faking it lol.

Also, just walk in and ask to test drive a ranger, thats about it, when I turn 18 I want to do that with the 2011, while they still have the new rangers =)
