Why Buying A Car Is So Awful
Listened to this podcast from NPR's Planet Money series and was wondering if the same laws are true here in Canada? Too much work to research it myself.
To put it simply, car buying sucks because of outdated franchise laws in the states that protect franchisees. Do we have similar laws in Canada?
I wonder if one of the fast growing Chinese manufacturers would ever enter North America. If so, they could perhaps enter with a different sales/distribution model that would put pressure on the current method (assuming there is a demand for their product).
My recent car buying experience wasn't terrible, but I still dislike that I can't go to any dealership and pay the same price for the same vehicle and not be stuck in some high pressure tactics.
