Thats dumb. What customer would buy a car at a mall kiosk from a brochure?

If Ford sets up a kiosk, GM competes by setting up a full service facility. Consumers vote with their dollars. We don't need a bunch of lawyers and professional politicians making careers out of bickering over how many sq ft a dealership has to be.
