      Well, surprise surprise. I got a survey from Volvo in my email last night.

      I don't think the dealer is going to like the results.

      On the other hand, I didn't receive any coaching at all this...

      Four year old twin boys with a 20 month old sister will find myriad ways to ruin your stuff. They are well behaved but it's not like you can keep kids of that age in control at every moment. Someone...

      Thanks!

      I was hoping you'd chime in again. I had to make a lot of assumptions because we only get bits and pieces of the story here. :)

      I feel as if I may have just had an epiphany regarding these surveys. Those of you in the industry can tell me if this is right or not.

      The disconnect here is that those of you employed by dealers are misplacing your blame. Yes, the surveys come from the manufacturers. Yes there is money tied to them. However, there is no requirement...

      Because none of those names are going to be misunderstood in conversation. Nobody is going to confuse 'A4' with 'A5'. In spoken conversation, Volt and Bolt will constantly be confused. 'Was that Volt...

      I didn't say that it didn't. Brendan clarified that point earlier.



      Yes, compensation comes from the manufacturer. It's the dealer that decides to tie it employee compensation.

      I don't disagree with the empathy part of your post, but it sounds like it has already been clarified by Brendan in this very thread that what really has happened is that dealerships have off-loaded...

      I hate these surveys as well, but knowing how they work, I'm willing to play ball with the service writers and the dealer to some extent when it comes to them.

      ^^ Yeah, I mean never mind about those people who are actually buying the current wagon. I mean, why cater to the preferences of the people who are actually buying our cars? :facepalm:

      Been saying this for years.

      An affordable small SUV with better utility than the Tiguan.

      I'm sure there is a bit of that. They build 20 engines. Dyno them all. Who do you think is going to get the best of the bunch. Still, they are all the 'same' engine.
