    Remember cars for clunkers? Remember GM taking government bailout? Remember GM pulling dealership franchises. They may have a different view.

    Didn’t see pay phone as an option on my Bronco build. Must be a MY22 thing.

    Wow! That puts a big time hurt to those who have been anxiously waiting for the Bronco. What a huge production reduction for MY2021. Just about kills it for 2021. With the outrageous ADMs dealership will likely add to the 2021s, only a fool would pay them rather than wait for a 2022. JMO.

    Go ahead and put a reservation in, even knowing it'll be a MY22.
    Yep, sure do. GM and Ford , along with most other manufacturers did buy back franchises.

    They had made it too easy to obtain one, and they were over populated. There are still several hundred stores that could be closed, and probably should be.

    We still use those services. the tools we use for them is what has changed.

    Movie rental = VCR's replaced by the internet, phones, mobile devices
    Telecommunications = Pay Phones replaced by mobile devices
    Transportation = ICE will be replaced by electric motors, drivers replaced with automation.

    Car mechanic? Simply replace the electric motor and battery, no need to pay a guy for 7 hours labor just to find the issue. Human delivery drivers will be last mile drivers, machines will do over the road driving.

    It's coming

    I can't...I tried but can't. I think there is an issue with the configurator, it upgrades you to the 10A and there is no way to change it to manual once you select sasquatch.

    Man, ain't that the truth. I have an older TV that uses a bulb and DLP Chip. Went to YouTube and learned how to fix it myself. It's too easy now. TV has sound, but no picture? Replace the bulb. TV shows white dots? Replace the DLP chip.

    Tired of your 70 inch TV? Upgrade to an 80 for less than what you originally paid for the 70 inch LMAO!!! Now the problem is getting rid of your 70 after you upgrade to the 80 because no one will buy your 70 when they can get a new one pretty cheap LOL.

    And to stay on topic..... Supply shortage is affecting every business. Don't know how many times I wanted a part for my 65 from Summit, Speedway Motors or Willwood and the part was on backorder....

    Eh switching from ICE to electric doesn't really do away with the car mechanic, at least not for a long ass time. Repairing all the ICE vehicles still on the road after the switch to electric aside, the large majority of automotive repairs don't actually have anything to do with the engine, at least in most of the newer stuff. From what I see on a day to day basis, most of our repairs these days are split between steering/suspension concerns, electrical concerns, NVH, heating and air, and fixing all this new technology we keep shoving into newer vehicles. All of those concerns have nothing to do with the engine type and would need diagnosis and repairs on electrical vehicles all the same.

    agreed and good points. the need for repairing engines will be reduced...over time. I should have been more specific and made it clear that the need for ICE repair will wane, but you are correct to point out that the term "auto mechanic" covers the entire vehicle and not just the engine.

    No, I don't think so. It's something like 97% of consumers want a person to interact with.
    Technicians spend most of their time coding software issues now, rather than engine/transmission work.

    There will be even more technology issues in the future.

    I wonder bv what this is going to do to those of us that got on board the wait train a month ago.

    Unless supply of parts allows for over time production for MY22 to fulfill all outstanding orders, i dont see my wife getting a convertible off road SUV until MY23.

    Unless we switch back to her original choice: Wrangler.

    That number surprises me. Especially with all these younger generation techies out there now. Hell, my grandkids started knowing how to operate a cell phone at 3 years old LOL.

    I bought both my Cobras online. In 2007 I bought my coupe off Ebay and in 2016 I bought my Vert off this website. I consider myself in the older generation that would prefer to buy off a lot and interact with a sales person and see the car in person. So, considering I bought off line back in 2007 it seems odd that today 97% of people still want to buy in person rather than online.

    I'm not doubting your number by any means. I'm just saying based on my experience it seems odd that not more are buying online in 2020/21.

    Someone correct me if I am wrong but it is illegal for the manufacturers to sell directly to the consumer. That is why Tesla got sued in multiple states because other dealerships felt like they had an unfair advantage in their sales strategy as all the Tesla dealers are essentially set up by the company itself.

    I'm not saying that 97% want to physically come into a dealership, but they want a person to talk to them. They don't want to click and buy and then the car show up with no human interaction.

    It's against some states' franchise laws. The states that it's not against their laws, the laws were intentionally made to prevent that kind of action however spending a million dollars a year on lobbyists will get the words twisted and enough gray area to get them a sales point within the state.

    That makes sense. I didn't physically talk to someone until my coupe showed up at my door. However, all communication prior to that was with a person through email. My vert I talked to the guy here through PM. Then we talked on the phone to coordinate me picking it up. So, to a point I did communicate with a "person" prior to my purchases even online.
