Read your other thread....

Well, talking about test drives. There are always two sides to every situation.

Yes, a dealership can approach an individual in a better situation... (perhaps, but not being there I don't know how things went down.... and it's human nature to be biased in your description... no matter how hard you try not to.)

But to the same token... Not many "informed" individuals would EVER by a WRX that has been used as a demo, or test ride car... The reasons go without saying.

Unless you've leased it, and have the warranty, and don't care about things being broke, and don't plan on keeping it, everyone else will care about how the car was treated.

Now... that being said. Most of these dealerships purchase their vehicles outright and then resell them....

As stated earlier 25k is not chump change.... so why should a dealer take the hit to market a car to a MINORITY individual....

And I say minority, because for every person that walks out that door dejected, 10 people will walk in willing to pay top dollar for the car....

Next year.. . Year after... maybe it'll change.... but there is no reason why they need to now.
