Ever wonder about the sordid, industry tactics car dealers use to get you to sign on the bottom line?

Ever wish you knew exactly how they were trying to manipulate you, to sign up for that top-of-the-line Lexus LS 600H, with the optional free range mink floor mats, the plutonium body armor, and the 600-month extended warranty?

Well, you're in luck!

Car Talk was recently contacted by an operative from deep within the industry. We call him "Deep Plaid."

We recently sat down with Deep Plaid aboard his yacht (the "Let Me Go Ask My Sales Manager") to learn about the tactics salesmen use to strong-arm you into a sale because, of course, forewarned is forearmed.

Yours in safer shopping,
