    I was thinking the same thing.

    With a problem-prone car like the Tesla, there should be a dealership with a service department on every corner.

    I would think it is more the result of pressure from Auto Dealership Lobbyists. They would be denied their 'piece of the action'.

    I don't see why a dealership would cut its own throat like that.
    Well, I don't either. Speculation? Bergen County still has retail blue laws in effect which act to close malls. Perhaps car dealers there lobbied to be open on Sunday or for entire state to be closed Sunday?

    Most left, and there used to be auto factories here, but they all left, GM Linden, Ford Mahwah and there was another one Ford Edgewater which closed much earlier.

    I thought that is exactly what this is about, they won't allow mfg direct, no?

    You are correct, I was mistaken. I should have done better research. As it turns out is is just dirty politics and protectionism and it is disgusting.

    I can't fathom how this is even constitutional, ie. privileges and immunities clause. I can understand, albeit not defend, the practice of protecting existing franchisees, but without existing dealers, why Tesla can't just be its own dealer is just up fathomable to me.

    If only government would concentrate on running itself rather than everybody else.

    Certainly possible -- it's about money somewhere of that I think most people agree.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
