Dealers Fight Back

The National Automobile Dealers Association is fighting back against GM’s plans to close some 2,600 dealerships around the country. NADA has begun a publicity campaign aimed at portraying dealerships as key contributors to local economies. The group is also taking out ads in publications like The Washington Post, as well as contacting Congress to ramp up support for their efforts. 

We also received an open letter from Russ Darrow, chairman of the American International Automobile Dealers Association, in which he claims that GM’s plan to close so many dealerships will ultimately prove harmful to the automobile industry and the American economy at large. 
Chrysler hasn’t announced how it plans to pare its 3,000-plus dealerships, but expect a legal battle on that front, as well, as things heat up in the OEM/dealership world.
