Giving up sex for a month is more appealing to 21 percent of Americans than having to haggle over the price of a new car.
According to a recent survey conducted by Edmunds.com, 44 percent of Americans would give up Facebook for a month, 29 percent would surrender their smartphones for a weekend and as mentioned above some would even give up sex. Even more telling, 33 percent of the 1,002 surveyed would rather go to the DMV, do their taxes or sit in the middle airplane seat than go through the process of buying a new car.
Those surveyed admitted that buying a vehicle is more stressful than going on a first date or watching their team in a close championship game. The vast majority (nine out of 10) wish car shopping was easier and they would be more excited to purchase a car if it had a set price rather than having to haggle. The survey also revealed that 94 percent would purchase a vehicle from a dealership where they were guaranteed to save thousands off of sticker price on a new car.
