(DALLAS-FT.

Pete Thomson said that the addition of Auto Locators of Texas to The Consumer Team is the result of an extensive search for a car retailer whose values were consistent with his program.   Thomson stated, “We believe there are significant issues with the majority of car dealers that often prevent consumers from getting a fair deal.  The addition of Auto Locators of Texas to The Consumer Team is a perfect match.   Richard Walsh and his team offer excellent used vehicles for thousands of dollars less than traditional car dealers.   Auto Locators of Texas does not subject the consumer to all the negatives that are associated with the car buying experience.  There are no sleazy sales people, no F&I (finance and insurance) tricks or other malarkey.  Just great cars at fair prices.”

In endorsing Auto Locators of Texas, Thomson says he’s endorsing the process of buying used vehicles.   Thomson stated, “Dollar for dollar, the best deal for consumers is a used vehicle.  We believe it is prudent for a consumer to avoid the depreciation hit that comes with a new car purchase.”  Thomson continued, “Auto Locators of Texas can serve any type of car buyer.  They offer late model high-end vehicles from manufacturers like Mercedes, Porsche, Mercedes-Benz and Lexus as well as less expensive vehicles.  Regardless of a customer’s needs, Auto Locators of Texas will deliver, and for thousands less than the big, franchise dealerships.”

Thomson attributed Auto Locator’s lower price structure to lower overhead.   He said, “Because Auto Locators of Texas doesn’t have a huge facility and large marketing budget like the big dealers, they can deliver the consumer a quality vehicle for thousands of dollars less.”   Thomson also cited Auto Locator’s customer service approach as superior to what consumers often experience when buying a car.   He said, “It’s amazing to see an operation like Auto Locators of Texas.  It’s the exact opposite of what people normally experience at a dealership.   Once consumers experience how good the car buying experience can be, they’ll never want to go back to the traditional, painful way that most people buy cars.”

Thomson said that Walsh will play a major role on The Consumer Team.  Thomson added, “Each year consumers lose billions because of bad car deals.  With the help of Richard Walsh and Auto Locators of Texas, The Consumer Team will first educate the consumer regarding the most important aspects of purchasing a car.  In addition, we want to connect our listeners to Auto Locators of Texas so they can get a great deal on their next car.”

The Consumer Team with Pete Thomson is broadcast Saturdays from 5-7PM Central on CBS Radio’s KRLD-AM 1080 in Dallas.   The Consumer Team is produced by McQ Media Inc.
