I just priced some trucks today and boy was there some sticker shock on 2015 models. Imagine how much money a consumer could save buying direct from the manufacturer. I believe there needs to be a class action lawsuit taken to the supreme court to disband all third party dealerships all together. North Carolina is trying to ban Tesla from direct selling to North Carolina Residents because it is un-fair. I would argue that this is actually progressive, capitalistic idea and it saves consumers money by not dealing with the middle man. http://www.slate.com/blogs/future_t...ould_prevent_unfair_competition_with_car.html I already know a number of people that support purchasing direct from the manufacturer for vehicles.
