It always amazes me that dealers can keep repeating something to each other, over and over, until finally they believe it as fact. And then, with a straight face (because they actually do believe it), present it to others as fact.
Most consumers don't like dealers. At all. Auto dealers to them represent a necessary evil that they are forced to put up with when they buy their car.
You guys are completely kidding yourselves; you are delusional if you think consumers like car dealers.
