Or would you test drive the car, then shop around for the lowest possible price? I'd bet the vast majority would do the later and show zero appreciation to the dealer that provided a test drive.
Why are these dealers supposed to supposed to get a cookie for doing their job? Part of why they are there is for us to test drive these things before we buy. Then we don't buy from them? Well, then THAT dealer should have been more competitive. It's a business, not a popularity contest.
