The automotive dealer network is a broken model, IMO. Does anybody out there have a fuzzy, hazy idea of what they want in a car and walk into a dealership needing the assistance of an expert salesman who will help guide the poor know-nothing buyer to the perfect vehicle in stock on their lot? I don't need that "help" and resent paying for it. Does anybody really need to walk into a dealer and have their car in stock like we need to have milk in stock at a grocery store? A brick & morter business is very expensive--especially for cars. Couldn't we just skip the expensive retailer (who, more often than not, charges a retail price for a drop-ship service) and buy from the distributor ourselves if we already know what we want and can wait a few weeks for delivery? I don't want to buy from a dealer at all. The only thing he does for me is allow a test drive (sometimes). That service could be offered in other ways much more cheaply.
