As for 'staff turnover', there aren't too many people that can make a career as a car salesman. There are a few, but not that many.

You say Isringhausen is one of the best dealerships in the country. Based on what? What are your sources? I've heard that they can be down-right pompous.

We all have our own reasons for buying at a certain dealership.

Best to just leave it at that.

My respects.

My sources? Just walk into their dealerships or visit their website. Very different experience. Oh, and this.

And yes, I'm sure you pay for it. I will note that I've never purchased a car there, but have had service done multiple times. My last BMW came from Peoria and the one before that Bloomington and then Westmont. Isringhausen always seems a little high on the price side and I'd perfer to get a deal on the price because I can put up with a salesperson for an hour or so. But when your finance adviser tells me to do something illegal, I'm not sure.

We all have our reasons, as you state...maybe you knew Sam Leman, or a relative.

Yes, we all could find "bad" things about any dealer (like price flexibility at Isringhausen). Yes, there arent many that can make a career as a car salesman, but the ones that can are at the best dealerships becuase they are knowledgeable about the cars and care about the customer...
