This is one reason car dealers get a bad rap.
So a salesperson contacts us to let us know he has an upscale model in white with tan interior. Uh no we want what we want. "Yeah but this is just a little more." Listen, it's more money and it's the wrong color.
The auto company goes to all the trouble of building a web site that allows a customer to build the car they want and then a dealer goes and tries to sell you something else? What's the point?
