I agree on both counts. It seems all of the OEMs are currently enthralled with mega-dealers and public dealer groups.

In my opinion, damn few people go shopping for a Mitsubishi. If Mitsubishi's going to have a chance of surviving in the U.S. they need a Dealer Network that can compensate for their OEM's shortcoming in terms of marketing and vehicle selection.

I do think Mitsubishi can be saved it they intend to stay in the U.S. but they're going to need to find some dealers who actually care about their franchise and have their prosperity tied to MMC's success.
