Re: I have given up on dealers. Does anyone else feel the same?
Some brick and mortar dealers just refuse to deal at all. The one I most frequented in Fort Worth was guilty of charging MSRP for everything, all the time, except a few times a year they'd have a 5% off sale. They have great service, but I always had that feeling of being screwed at the register.
Finally, other dealerships started carrying the brands and models I wanted, and were willing to deal - offering regular discounts of 10% - 20% off or more. My old shop in Fort Worth refused to match other brick and mortar prices, and no longer gets my business or any of my friend's business for that reason. But, I guess he really did not need it because the last time I saw him, he was showing everyone his new Ford GT.
My point is that a lot of these guys are just plain greedy, and maybe they deserve to go out of business.
