    Texas Mazda store learns what’s necessary with relationship-building,

    sponsorships, advertising. BY MARY WELCH

    With roughly 40,000 soldiers stationed at Fort Hood in Killeen, Texas, about an hour’s drive north of Austin, it must be

    like shooting fish in the proverbial barrel for a car dealership – right? Not so fast. As other dealerships near bases can

    attest, it’s often far from easy to penetrate the local military market. Sometimes it’s hostile territory, in fact.

    “A lot of military have been taken advantage of by the auto industry,” said John Burge, general manager of the Mazda

    Killeen dealership. “They’ve done a lot of [negative]things such as overselling or giving a higher interest rate. Many

    dealers see these young men and women with steady paychecks who haven’t made a major purchase before, and they

    take advantage of them. That’s why a lot of officers tell their people not to buy a car from a local dealer.”
