    WIshing for a list of dealers you guys recommend. I would also wish you guys would offer a paid service where you would negotiate for me and I could avoid personal contact with a sales person.
    Great informative videos! I can not believe how naive the public is, including myself, when dealing with auto dealers! We look for best prices shopping at stores, for homes, for mortgage rates, etc., but are clueless about a huge purchase for most of us.
    Keep-up th good work!


    TEXAS. RepairSmith, come to Texas!!!!
