Nope it is on me to get advice from as many people as I can, research the information as much as possible, read, and re-read, learn, and re-learn. So not by far. It is an ongoing process.

are you selling new or used?

If new, sit in the cars and drive the cars. That's a great way to get a feel for control, features, and how to use them.
If used, you can learn the inventory you have at the time but that wil change, so only experience on the lot as well as having a history of being a "car guy" can help build up good overall knowledge of cars across the brand spectrum.

If you want to watch things in action, catch an episode of motorweek, or other auto shows. Read some auto or consumer magazines, or go to an online auto site. They wil do a walkaround, go under the hood, show seating and controls, etc. While this may not help you sell a specific car it can give you tips on how to flow your presentation.

if you are a "people person" and can communicate with others well; then the car info and discussion will come with time

It is used cars but we also have new. I dont really have much car knowledge but I am learning as much as I possibly can; I am a people person usually.

It's very possible to over think what features to have on a car and what to leave off. As a rule , with today's factory packages, the lowest to middle class of models will have all a person can use and a bit more. Top of the line get flat ridiculous with bells and whistles no one can use or want to inflate the price.

In my 50+ of driving I've always found that a policy of K.eep I.t S.imple S.tupid is the best since that is all the goodies that are useful in a car with less to break.
