A lot of those dealers might have sold, a lot more cars, if they operated like a reputable, honest business. Instead they lie and cheat and make buying a car, a frustrating, miserable experience. Hard to have any sympathy for the owners.

This is horrible. As an employee of a Chrysler dealership I am horrified about the effects this will cause for thousands of employees. It makes me sick that my tax dollars are being given to these two companies to bail them out while they are kicking us to the curb. Just as long as the top executives get their money they don't care about us little people who are the ones responsible for their large salaries and bonuses. If only someone would give me the opportunity to take over both GM and Chrysler I could do a better job turning them both around WITHOUT begging for bailouts or cutting the workforce.

I totally agree; the worst experiences of my life have been shopping for new cars. Totally frustrating every time !!!
Name a fair price up front, yes or no without the BS haggling and mandatory ` I have to get the managers approval for this low a price '
`Automotive Sales Personnel' now have to have a College Degree ? They are just Sales Clerks making twice the average income.

Everybody needs to tighten their belts, except of course, the Unions.

They helped me get elected. They're golden.
