As you said, there are some good dealers and some bad dealers, just
like good and bad indies, doctors, lawyers, humans in general.

That being said, I drive Mitsubishi exclusively right now because of
the care and attention I have received from the local service
department. I own two 10 year old Mitsus, 94 Galant and 94 Diamante,
as well as an 03 Galant. The 94 G is probably on it's last leg if I
don't do something like rebuild the tranny soon, but I'm positive the
car has been in at least a minor accident, has been through a couple
of owners before me, has been beaten to hell and back, and is
currently sitting at 197,000 miles. I almost feel like I'm driving a
poor mans Benz. The 94 D is sitting at 214,000 miles, and still runs
out strong. She I'm saving up for, she is sitting right now as I've
only owned her for a month or so, but I plan to put some good lovin'
into her.

Believe me when I say my dealer smiles everytime he sees me coming *laughs*
