Hey Joe!  Great job with the TrueCar thread.  I had no idea that they were as far off on the pricing as they are.  We need to keep up the pressure!  This business tends to get outraged and then move on to a new topic.  Happy selling!   -Mike

Thanks for the add, Joe! Great to see owners who share so much valuable insight. We've lived cross country but only visited Sacramento passing through on our way to Reno. Hope your fall season there is a profitable one!
