Default Biggest BS a salesman ever told you?

Ok..not limited to ford..what's the single biggest piece of BS any salesman or manager ever fed to you?
I've had lots of good ones..The one that took the cake was when I was 17..I asked the salesman if this 77 monte Carlo was metallic orange? He said yes.
I bought the car, drove it by high school and everyone started laughing at me ....thats when I found out I was "partially color blind"
Dang car was pink!
parked it that it to the dealer and traded it next day

Not car related; but when I traded in my first F-150 for my wife's Edge, the dealer said that I would receive free oil changes and inspections not only on the Edge but also on all my vehicles. Didn't get anything free, but then again I figured they were just blowing smoke.

When I bought my Ford:
Me: "How do I make the tow mirrors fold in?"

Salesman: "They don't"

When I was looking at Chevrolet Cruze's:
Salesman: "Look at these shutters on the grill its the newest technology"

Me: "Can you tell me what I'll get for my 2007 GMC on a trade?"

Salesman: "They make you commit to buy first, this dealership is actually terrible to work for. Did you see the sound deadening material in the trunk? It's the newest thing!"

He was obviously trying to sad sack/dazzle me, which is a weird combo.

"You shouldn't worry about the price, you should just worry about the payment".

^ From a salesman on a car dealership's lot. The dealership was/is owned by <ahem> former<ahem> mafioso, and the salesman and his partner looked like they were escapees from the set of "The Godfather".

Not a car but an RV salesman. I had a new 94 Ram with the 318 v8 (318 Magnum) and went to look at a travel trailer. I had done my research and knew I couldn't tow more than about 5000 lbs. I was told that I could pull anything on the lot as "that truck could pull a house over". I didn't buy there.

Shopping for a Plymouth minivan and trying to decide on the short or long version, we noticed that the 2nd and 3rd row back seats were closer together on the short one.

"Well, we don't have the truck you are looking for. So, try going to another dealer, and when you find the one you want, come back and we can get that truck from that dealer."

"Do they make a Ecoboost 5.0?"

"We can offer you $800 for your trade in" (2002 F-150)

"If you're not ready to buy why did you inquire?...Click"

"If that dealer will sell you that truck, for that price, bring it here after so we can see it"

This was in the middle of the showroom. I had never seen this guy before and he was new from what I was told. I threw a major fit over this and the guy was fired.

Salesman: "Hey, what are you doing?"
Me: "Looking at this Shelby."
Salesman: "If you're not a customer you should leave."
Me: "I bought a truck the other day and was waiting for Ron to bring me my plates."
Salesman looking started: ".... oh yeah uh, I was just messing around with you."
