However, the response was almost double at 38 percent.

The question "What is your most common objection from car buyers today after you have a commitment and are negotiating?" had slightly different responses in 2012 versus 2013.

The top response was "Not enough for my trade," at 23 percent; followed by "Payments are too high," at 19 percent; and "The price is too high," at 17 percent. "I'll think it over and get back to you," was in 4th place at 15 percent.

Commenting on the results, Joe Verde, president of Joe Verde Sales & Management Training, Inc., stated: "People tell you 'No' a lot when you're closing. They're nervous about spending 20 or 30 grand, and they didn't know you, like you or trust you an hour ago. So saying 'Yes' in just an hour means really going out on a limb for most customers. That's why you have to make it as easy as possible for them to agree to purchase. If you close correctly, you'll never ask the standard, 'Will you buy today,' question. Not only that, your negotiation will be about helping them fit this new vehicle they love into their budget, instead of whether you can 'make them a deal today.'"
