Why Buying A Car Is So Awful

Note: Today's show is a re-run. It originally ran in February, 2013.   In survey after survey, people rank buying a car as one of their least favorite experiences.   Why hasn't anyone figured out a better way to sell cars? Why can't you just go to a car store and shop for cars from a bunch of different manufacturers? Why don't cars have real price tags — with real prices, that people actually pay?   Today on the show: Why car buying is so unpleasant, and what your local legislators may be doing to keep it that way.
