You're right...never sold cars. My dealer tried to tell me this exact same thing...however, there is NO WAY the dealer can pay for a multi million dollar building and the staff on a 2% profit...there would have to be a steady stream of cars leaving that lot. Its amazing how creative they can get to make the deal go through, perhaps there is money on the back end of these deals too. I got mine $2000 under sticker so I don't know about your theory.
