FTC to Host Public Workshop Examining the U.S. Auto Distribution System Workshop Will Explore Competition, State Regulations, and Emerging Trends in the Industry, Project No. P131202
I am once again looking to buy a car and I have done a lot of research online and really like many of the manufacturer's sites for building cars. Unfortunately when I have built the car I like I am then thrown to the contact a dealer or look at what dealers have that is similar site. At this point I am stuck dealing with the horrible and antagonistic environment that almost all dealerships present. I have never known anyone to like this situation of begging and bartering to get back to a fair price on a car. This situation only hurts consumers by making them pay for the awful service of middlemen. I hope this practice can be skipped for new car sales. This method wouod still allow for the primary income for these dealerships of used car sales.
