The current auto dealers franchise laws do not protect the consumer. Why do so many people walk out of a dealer store feeling that they have been cheated. The current dealer system does not work.. No one should be forced to deal with someone that they feel is cheating them. Being able to buy a vehicle online is straight forward and eliminates the haggling that everyone hates. Why do new car and used car dealers have such a bad reputation. It should be obvious that this needs to be changed. Adding more competition from online sellers would force the bad actors to offer better customer service and a more transparent transaction.
