Last night we purchased our second Prius. The first one was purchased from a Toyota Dealer based on availability (in '06 you had to wait for a Prius). When I have had my car serviced at this dealer, they have FOX News on their TV in the customer waiting room. I have complained to a desk clerk and the set was changed to CNN. First time it happened, shortly after the change a manager came by and asked "why was the station changed?" She were told it was because a customer complained. I smiled at the angered manager. The next and final time I went to have my car serviced their I found FOX on again.
This time we shopped around based on models with options. Two dealers about the same distance from us had the model available. The dealer we purchased our 1st Prius from came in close to $100 cheaper than another dealer, when they heard we were negotiating with a competitor. We went with the slightly more expensive car because of the airing of FOX News. I just received great pleasure in informing the salesman who just called from the FOX airing dealership that we purchased our car from his competitor and that although it was slightly more expensive, it was their airing of FOX News that lost them the deal. I asked him to please pass this information on to his management. I told him we were insulted that they would air a station which such disregard for the truth. I told him I was passing this on to my Prius loving friends (many of our friends drive Priuses).
