Recommended N. Texas dealers? What's the deal?

This has proven to be the darnedest experience. I can't get a dealer (or a local leasing company for that matter) to give me a sale price. I know, it sounds crazy and I must be saying something to irritate them but that isn't the case. I've contacted my local dealer, told via email what I wanted and asked what would be your sale price? No follow up. I then start getting automated emails from dealer checking in to see if I'm interested in a vehicle? I email back to online sales rep, including paste of last response from him, asking for a sale price. Nothing back.

Contacted Costco Auto Purchase Program. Closest dealer participating is in neighboring county (can't get there though because it's on the other side of a reservoir). Provide copy of vehicle requested, mention that it will most likely require ordering which is fine with me, and he says that he'll sell it at invoice. OK, now we're getting somewhere. Next thing I know he's responding back trying to get me into a Sahara that they have in stock. I politely mention that I'm not interested in some of the Sahara features and that I'd just like to order the Sport configured the way I want it. No follow up. I then get a follow up phone call from someone else at the dealership saying that they dropped the ball and to please call him back (he left his cell). I called back, gave the specific details of the vehicle requested, and guess what? No response (72 hours later).

Local leasing company I've contacted twice, most recently mid-week, and asked for an itemized "get into vehicle" cost and the response was I'll get the figures. Same story as above (72 hours later).

What does it take to get someone to order a vehicle? I haven't even gotten far enough into the process to aggravate anyone yet.

I even sent an email to the Costco Program letting them know of my experience (they solicited the request) and the CSR called back but left only a message. I returned the call and gave my cell and the best contact time to reach me (medical provider so I have patients) during her business day and guess what? No response either.

Is bad breath via email or phone possible? Is it internet body odor? I can't figure this out. I thought these guys were needing to sell vehicles. Oh well, at least my Civic Si is paid for and I guess I'll just keep driving it but darn it sure makes me wonder if this is divine intervention with my just not needing a financial commitment at present (stable job, house paid off, no debt except daughter's Civic which I'll have paid off this summer).

If anyone in N. Texas sees a red Civic Si, steer clear. I think I have bad karma or some such.

I had great luck with Meador Jeep in Ft Worth off 20 and Campus. Then again, my sales guy was new, so maybe he still cared.

I purchased my 09' from Moritz in Fort Worth. This lady is great and she has also sold two of my friends Jeeps. Her name is Lynn Sheppard. Ask to speak to her and tell her Mike Davis sent you. The dealership is located at on Camp Bowie and the number is 817-591-3878. She will definitely take care of you. I was over there yesterday for an oil change and they have a bunch of new 2010 models on the lot!

I appreciate the referrals. The limited trend here is that the recommended dealers are in Tarrant county as opposed to my being over on the east side (Collin Co.). I guess it all depends as well on who wishes to sell their vehicles, regardless of location.
