"It is not the actual recalls that is giving GM a bad name it's the news for making it a bigger than it is. The dealers I work with everyday are explaining everything to their customers and it is not stopping people from buying!"

I can guarantee you this:  Had Jim Ziegler trained anyone at TrueCar about how to sell to a customer, TrueCar would not have led their charge to THEIR DEALER CUSTOMERS--here and elsewhere--with condescension and belittling.  When you pat this retail vertical's people on the head like we "just don't understand", careful with your manicured had or you're going to get bit.  You go get'em, Jim:  Over 60,000 page views total across all these blogs, the two main ones approaching 35,000 alone.  Another thing Jim would've taught you is how to manage your social media presence with your custmers.  Well, he's giving you a lesson now, free.  I think you're about to get the bill from someone else, though... And, one more thing:  Does TrueCar's access to the 5,000 dealers DMS automatically make them AutoNation stores, data-wise?  I guess Group One didn't want to take that chance.

I appreciate your point of view but to say I am not honorable says more about you than me. Then again, if I was making $1500 a head to train salespeople I may feel threatened too.

Happy Holidays

Hi James, in Moscow so not picking up messages as often as I should, the responses must give you great encouragement, still looking forward to the next edition.

Hi Jim,
I am so happy to see you here. What do you think about Ford's new program Dealer Parts Advantage. They are being very tight lipped about it so I do not have all the information, but I can say it is a Win Win for Ford but Not for the Dealers.
