AverageAmericanGuy: Amazon killed Borders. Now people without the Internet can't buy books.So, yeah, it sounds great and it's really convenient to buy stuff online and have it delivered. But once you leave your little technologically enhanced sphere, there are plenty of disadvantaged people out there that rely on bricks and mortar stores to supply their needs. If you kill off the local dealership, you're taking that choice away from them and hurting us all.
nolanomad: If you could screw over a dealer, you would, wouldn't you?
nolanomad: I need to speak up on this "middle man" nonsense. Show of hands, how many of you butcher your own meat, distill and bottle your own booze, build your own furniture, etc. Sure a few... but most of us expect to be able to go somewhere and purchase things that have been prepared, assembled, bottled, and deal with a "middle man"- a grocer, a shoe salesman, a waiter at a restaurant, what have you.
Yellow Beard: Lol, what do I know?
Yellow Beard: To the poster that doesn't believe dealers work on 1% margins when selling new cars, I can assure you that is true. The profit center of any dealership is the service department.
Great Janitor: The reason why is for the car salesman. If the lot wasn't forced to be closed at least one day a week, then most of the salesmen would be working open to close seven days a week.
