Manufacturers like it that way too.


I don't think the idea of a dealership (or showroom with trials, if you prefer) is outdated. I don't understand who would buy a car without test driving it. But obviously people will.

That being said, it's just the hassle of dealing with an independent dealer and lack of transparency that is outdated. The showroom/test drives can easily be here to stay. Just don't seek to actively make it a painful experience for a potential customer.
