I think car "retailers" are finally coming round to the fact that if they call themselves "dealers" it is putting them in a bad place in punters subconscious, i.e. drug "dealers" etc etc.
For the first time I noticed that the usual "Go to X website to find your nearest dealership" has been changed to, "ask your local CARBRAND retailer for information". This could mean the end of the dealership's as they move to becomming car retailers.
Still, don't suppose it will change the attitude of the car salespeople, they will never change.
No Dealers at Vauxhall!
Oh yeah, the advert I noticed this on; the new Vauxhall Astra.
