    Ho much money does a car salesman make realistically

    A major Subaru dealership just offered me the spot. But its commission only.

    Any one have the ins and outs or secrets of the trade?

    my dad makes about $70k. He's been one for a while now. Could make more by working for another company but likes where he is. He's the top salesman there though so I'm sure many make a bit less than he does. Figure you'd make $50k-$80k. He enjoys what he does but has to work weekends which he hates.

    Buddy is in auto sales. Key is how many units they are moving a month on Average. If a active dealership you can bank. If not a busy store, you'll be standing around wondering what the fuk you're doing there

    It really depends. My best friends family owns about 6 car dealerships and half of their family works for one or another (cousins, etc.). If you are really good you can bank 120+ (this is in a low cost of living area), if you are mediocre you will do ok 40-60k a year, if you are bad, you will barely be able to put food on the table.


    tips: develop a client base, be personable, and be willing to do anything for your client, or at least make them think you are willing to do anything. My best friend is 26 and is already manager of one of his family dealerships because the kid can sell anything to anyone and everyone keeps coming back or sending business his way. Read Malcolm Gladwell's the Tipping Point. In the car business it is truly about how many people you know and how many people they know. The wider your network the more sales you get.

    When you get your MS you realize you know nothing
    When you get your PhD you still realize you know nothing but it is ok because now you know no one else does either"

    gotta agree on the luck part

    at least from the new cars i've bought in the past, it really didnt even matter who the salesman was. I saw the car, wanted it, whoever was there at the right place at the right time got the commission. Dont even remember who the hell sold me my cars

    then again, if you know alot of people, that obviously helps too. Friends, family when buying a new car will most likely go through you.
