    We've really enjoyed his videos. Very informative and helps us along with decisions and so on.

    He needs to stop the Coffee talk though...lol

      I agree. I too have enjoyed his videos. Could not believe the lack of maturity and class of some of those who backed out. Frankly, Rick is crazy not to take some kind of deposit, even if only $500.

        The Video is a little long, but he clearly explans the process and understands why there's a lot of anxiety and frustration in this experience. Customers are given time frames an appoximate dates based on pervious allications. Hopefully you're dealer is not taking more deposts than than their pervious allocations.

        Keep in mind, this is a Commitment for both the Dealer and Customer.

          I enjoy Rick's videos but I did not gather any "new" information from this video that I had not already read right here on MECF. I used to watch his videos about once a month and then I lost interest in his shtick. He does a good presentation but they go a little long for my tastes. He is a high energy enthusiastic guy though!

                I used to watch Rick's videos pretty regularly. Got some useful information. I tried to buy that Museum delivery Yellow/Red C8 coupe that he mentioned the customer backed out of. I sent Rick emails and text messages within 60 minutes of him posting the video on 12/14 the car might be for sale but never got a call, email or message back. Needless to say I was a little disappointed to not get to buy the car or even a reply back saying it was sold.

                  My Wife has been in sales for more than 30 years, and she always said, a simple feedback goes a long way, and people always remember who took the time and those who didn't. In this day in age and the times we're in, electronic feedback is the simplest form of saying thanks for your inquery or here's the latest. We're doing it now, without ever giving it a thought.

                      Almost all the dealers that take deposits make them refundable, so it wouldn't change the drop out rate. And if he made it non-refundable, he'd drive business to other dealers. Drop outs is part of the game when it comes to reserving cars. Every sales person has to deal with it.

                        I like Rick's videos, and I live near his dealership. But I ended up getting my 2020 from a dealer in Michigan simply because I couldn't get thru to place an order. This was via trying multiple times online, phone calls and a physical trip to the dealer thru 2019. I got the sense that he has more skin in the video game than the dealership.
                        Informative videos yes, if yes a bit long in the tooth, but I wish I had been able to be a customer more than a viewer.

                          I had the same experience with Rick too. I left him multiple emails and he never got back to me...

                              Rick Conti was the first dealer I contacted when I decided I wanted to get a C8. He never got back to me, until I texted him that I was placing my deposit elsewhere. Then he sent me a bit of a nasty text, that it was my fault for not being patient. Oh well, I still watch his videos
