The Five Hardest Used Cars to Sell

There’s a few sayings about good salespeople. They can sell snow to an eskimo or a pair of gloves to a hand-less man or wool to a baby sheep farmer. No matter how good some the salespeople, there are cars that are a real struggle to sell. What is the reason why cars don’t sell? Reputation.
