Hey Oppo...it's been awhile. Anyway, here is quick tale from the adventures of Automatch Tom. So I'm shopping around for a new Odyssey for a client down South. Normally I really like dealing with southern car dealers. They tend to be much more welcoming and willing to make a deal, unlike some of the "stealerships" in the northern NJ/ NY area.
So I call this dealership up and introduce myself. - "Hi my name is Tom. I'm with Automatch Consulting. Folks pay me to locate vehicles and negotiate on their behalf.

Dealership hung up on me...called back it was not an accident. Usually a place will entertain my conversation and then just flat out ignore my request for pricing.

Oh well, so much for southern hospitality, I guess they weren't interested in making a deal. Meanwhile their competition gave me an aggressive quote within 15 minutes of our phone call, then managed to beat another dealer by an additional $300.
