I get the audi serviced at the local dealer that I picked it up from. No hassles, no problems. This has seriously be a joyous auto purchase.

One thing to also consider ... Most of the guys here are pretty good at surfing the internet.... Most consumers are not. Also, for whatever reason, over 90% of ALL car shoppers love the haggling process. Think about it, Most everyone here owns Axioms. You click, checkout, and you are done... What does the normal audio-video purchaser do... He goes to Best Buy/Circuit City ... or even a "high end" store ... and haggles.... true ?

I also just priced out the Carsdirect pricing ... and they are pretty darn fair. The dealer makes a profit, and the customer gets a solid value. Put it this way, If ANYONE wants a Carsdirect type price on anything Ford, Lincoln, Mercury, Jaguar, Volvo, Dodge, Chrysler, or Jeep.., and are having a hard time ... PM me...

OK craig, seems like you're an American car dealer. You can quote me a better price on a Ford GT. For some reason it doesn't come up on carsdirect.com. I can fit an infant car seat in there, right?

The Ford GT ... THAT is a car that has angered MORE dealers. First, they spent so much in resources to develop it, so they could sell 5000 over 4 years. THEN, they sold over half the production to Factory Cronies ...

In the meantime, a GREAT car, the new 500, is ignored by Ford. I bought one in November, and bascially it is a Volvo S-80 with All Wheel Drive and every option possible, and is still under $30,000 ... grrrrrrr

I gotta tell ya, Craig, that I keep seeing The 500 around town, and find myself thinking "Man, that is a nicely proportioned automobile." It's the first car by an American badged company that has caught my attention in a VERY long time.

I know nothing about it, mechanically, I just think it's a really nice looking car.

Those 300s look as American as all get out to me. Now if only GM could do an interesting car (other than the Corvette). Ha ha ha ha!

The 300 is a BEAUTIFUL car ... well engineered, fun to drive ... In fact, if they make AWD an option in the new SRT version, they would have a killer .... 0-60 in 5 seconds flat, four wheel drive, and LOADED ... for $45,000.

And Jack ... The 500 IS all that, balanced, quiet and solid like a Mercedes ... As a guy who is not too fond of driving SUV's, It is refreshing to see some nice domestic cars !

I agree the 500 is a pretty nice looking vehicle. I think the 300 is also an awesome looking one. I believe the SRT Magnum comes out in summer, right? That's a beast. I think after market companies like Dub have done Chrylser well, making the 300 the "bling" ride. Chrysler seems to have played their cards well too, by having a lot of them at rental car places. I rented one in Hawaii.

Ford needs to do more of that in order to keep any kind of momentum on the 500, like they did w/ the Taurus and Sable.

Other dream cars I've seen lately on the road, CLS55 (gorgeous) and the McClaren Mercedes. Then again, I live in Silicon valley. And today in our parking lot, some people have sold some of their options, since they drove the Mercedes G500 and screaming yellow Porsche GT3. That doesn't include our CEO's Ferrari Spyder and Baby Lambo. And here I am looking for a Honda Pilot...

Funny you should mention that. I was kinda caught by it at first, too. But after seeing one or two up close, I wonder about the visibility; large rear posts, and real short windows.

I was surprised to read, in an article in today's local paper (Cleveland Plain Dealer), that the 300 was among the ugliest cars in a survey conducted by Click and Clack, from the "Car Talk" show on National Public Radio. "The Chrysler 300, a sedan that embodies "Pimp My Ride" for many nonenthusiasts." Not sure I agree, but it WAS funny.
