Please change the rules so that car manufacturers are allowed to sell and service vehicles directly to the public in all states, outside of the "dealer network" model. The powerful car lobby should not be allowed to stifle competition by requiring dealerships. The new electric cars have different servicing and sales needs that are not met by the dealership model.
