Dude, where did all the dealerships go?

    the bottom of the recession, when quite a number of dealerships in my area had closed (some in the middle of the night, leaving a big surprise for their employees the next morning), we have seen a lot reopen, and even some new brands such as Mini and Kia come into the area. But Chrysler and GM did not come back. Ford went from two dealers to one, but that one now does very brisk business and is looking to expand.

    For GM or for Chrysler, I have to drive out of county at least a half hour, which is not something I am likely to do. I wonder how the GM and Chrysler dealer networks are recuperating on the whole. I have not read that they made any concerted effort to redistribute dealerships evenly, but rather just let the failing ones close because they had too many by far.
