That still leaves a lot of dealers in lots of towns. I notice none are closing in the major cities.....Tulsa, Moore, OKC, etc. What surprised me was two in Stillwater.

I see those awful big Chrysler Cs about every day in Stillwater. Guess they couldn't sell enough of them in Stillwater. I like them, but not good enough to buy one.

Maybe the Chrsyler dealer, if he wants to stay in the car business, would like to switch over to some make not sold in Stillwater, such as Mazda.

I haven't actually read the linked article, but I did hear today that something like 600 Chrysler dealerships are closing nationally. Gonna be some auto plant workers hurting soon.

If you have a Chrysler or Dodge like I have, there's no need to worry. The Law states that any manufacter going out of business or closing out a product, must provide 10 years worth of parts and supplies for that product.
And that goes for anything.

Why do you thing there are so many "aftermarket" parts dealers?

This is part of the stupidity of "big business"..........

The big dealers in Tulsa, OKC etc are impersonal, high volume companies.........you go in, they hustle you from one guy to another.........drive it home now we will get your paperwork together and deal with it later. If you have a problem set an appointment and bring it in next Thursday. Last time I had a problem with a vehicle (that I couldn't fix myself) was on a recall on a pick up. There was a water pump recall. I took it in, a day and a half later I got it back but the truck began overheating. I took it back and was told the radiator was bad, needed replacing (for $400) and it wasn't covered under the warranty. I took it to a radiator shop, who cleaned it for $65 and who found it full of water pump gasket material.

Small dealers develop relationships.....the salesman was there for years, goes to church down the street, eats at the local diner......when you have a problem you go to the dealer, talk to the mechanic (another guy you've known for years), and you get it fixed. Dad owned a company that ran several trucks in a small town (less than 35,000), although he covered a "territory" the size of Kansas. He could call his salesman to see what they had available, arrange financing and delivery, and the dealership would deliver the new vehicle the next day. He was having coffee with the dealership owner one morning at the local coffee shop when dad mentioned one of his trucks was acting a funny.....not getting good mileage, losing power in the mountains, etc. Dealer sent the mechanic over that evening to look at it, ordered a part the next day, and in a week the problem was fixed with almost no down time.

And if you have fifty small town dealers, each with a modest inventory, you have just as many sales and just as much available inventory as you have when you have five dealers, hundred s of miles apart, each with $100,000,000 in inventory. And the small dealer advertises in local newspapers, they support local sports, they contribute to local parks.

Just my opinion, but they should shut down the mega dealers and it will stimulate sales across the country in small towns everywhere.

Excellent post. But that's the way things have been going for a long time. Open up a Lowes or Home Depot and the mom and pop hardware store closes down. Open a Chili's and the local diner closes down. And of course we all know what Walmart did to local stores.

BTW, if any of you are Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives fans, you'll be interested to know that Guy (whatever) will be filming in the Oklahoma City area next week. He's hitting 6 restaurants. I can't remember all of them, but I know Cattleman's is one of them. The film clips will be part of various shows in the next six months. I love that show.
