They want to deal in person.

That is why I use the internet, I do not have the time to meet everybody in person.

They don't have time to shoot offers to everyone that sends an email which is why they only deal with people they think are serious.

What makes you think I am not serious. I think you are not serious. I spend most of my day in the operating room taking care of people. I do not enjoy all the free time you have. I do most of my business over the internet and decide who is worthy of my time and physical presence.

I did not say you are not serious, you are making this personal when it is not. Millions of not-serious people send out emails like yours to dealers everyday and dealers have learned to filter out the ones who are wasting their time. I actually bought my last new car over the net but I did it in a way that worked for the dealer.

It is simple - don't reply to any dealer that won't give you what you want!

When I am told that I am not serious without ever meeting me, I take it personally. I can understand the dealer's dilemma. I do hate when a business has a designated "internet sales department" which they only use to lure people into their business and (in my experience) put pressure on the customer. That is my point which you miss completely initially. Your advice is well taken but they do crowd my email with their "call me or come in" offers.

Good luck and I never said you were not serious. The dealers obviously think you are like all the others who flood their inbox with inquiries. I bet they have to deal with a thousand or more inquires for each sale. What would you do?
