Facts and figures:
2015 total Corvette Sales 33329
Top 100 Corvette dealer sales combined with #100 doing 47 is 12,209.
That's just 33.6% of the total sales.
That means that 2/3 of the sales go to smaller dealers.
I'll bet you'd find a high percentage of the total done by many dealers selling just 10
cars per year.

Then you have some of the mega Corvette dealers like MacMulkin, Kerbec, and Criswell selling all over the US. So much of the service comes down to local dealers.

Just wanted to throw out a few facts for everyone to see the value in sales of the smaller dealer and that GM would not just rely on the top 100. IMHO

If small dealers that sell 2-3 Corvette sales a year stopped selling Corvettes, then those Corvettes would simply be sold someplace else. This is not a case of "Thank God we have dealers that sell 2-3 Corvettes a year!" It's a statistic that has no bearing on the point. If anything it shows how many dealers with a lack of the proper education are allowed to sell Corvettes.

If much of the service comes down to local dealers, then they should be good at it regardless of if they are selling them or not. Honestly, it doesn't matter at all. The entire point of discussion on what dealers are selling how many cars is completely irrelevant to the discussion of service quality and if anything, is reinforcing the issue at hand.

A dealer can sell you a Corvette and do an oil change for you since this is not considered warranty work. For those of you that buy from the small town dealer that has no certifications you will wish you did not purchase the car if you have serious problems. This should be a consideration for those of you wishing to purchase a new car from a small town dealer that cannot service it.

I know, I shouldn't hold my breath that it will happen.

This legitimate question has been posed a few times in this thread.

Doctors as a whole are generally A or B above average in intelligence,and excel at book learning and memorization, but that does not mean they are all above average in people skills, personality, bedside manner, or the desire to serve mankind. Some are just arrogant jerks in it for the large paycheck.
