Measures to shorten purchase process

1550 Views 6 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  MPrice2984
Why hasn't mercedes taken measures to shorten the smart car purchase/access process?There are many towns IN the USA where car manufacturers have pulled out and left facilities vacant. Why can't Mercedes re-vector these facilities and produce these cars in the USA?
I have a problem with the 10-12 month wait I was quoted at the ONLY dealership in my area.
Any thoughts?

Another possible facility to build the Smart, how about Marysville, Ohio? Honda builds the Accord and the Ridgeline in Marysville, Ohio which is 30 minutes from me. They are coming up to 25 years in Marysville. The only reason they opened a factory in Marysville, Ohio, was that our then-governor, Rhodes, owned land there and sold it to Honda and gave them a 25-year tax abatement.

My step-dad was telling me this morning that probably next year they are coming up on their 25th year in Marysville, and after that, Honda will have to start paying taxes. They will probably vacate that facility and go elsewhere. If they leave this huge factory vacant, maybe Smart can take it over and build cars there.
