Auto dealers add significant cost to purchasing a vehicle. These costs typically come as financial costs (ranging from additional mark-up items to outright fraud that is too small to take to small claims court). They should not be a required component between consumers and auto manufacturers. This will allow for a wider range of business types to operate, and consumers will benefit as a result.
