“This happens all the time,” said Bill Wolters, the president of the Texas Automobile Dealers Association. “Someone wants an exception to the franchise laws. If we made an exception for everybody that showed up in the legislature, before long the integrity of the entire franchise system is in peril.”
Integrity of the franchise system? Am I missing something? All I see is irony that in a business friendly state this particular special interest group wants the state government to protect them from competition.
Quite frankly I will never again buy from a traditional dealership. I have found a place or two that operates with a sales staff on salary with no commission. I will not have anything to do with a commission sales dealership.
I never thought I wanted an electric car, but now I am going to seriously look at this car next year out of sheer cussedness.
