We’re excited to report that our research suggests participation in this recession is optional, and is significantly dependent upon dealer decisions.

EasyCare, the leading brand of automotive benefits specifically created to enhance a consumer’s vehicle buying and ownership experience in ways that create positive, long-term relationships between drivers and their dealers, today released the findings of their Industry Leaders survey.

This research was specifically designed to get a deeper understanding of the challenges facing the automotive industry today, and to better understand the factors that have driven growth and success among some dealers while others have been challenged by falling revenues. This research was intended to provide an initial read among particularly successful dealerships, in advance of a full industry survey to be deployed in January, 2010.

“We’re excited to report that our research suggests participation in this recession is optional, and is significantly dependent upon dealer decisions,” states Larry Dorfman, Chairman/CEO of APCO. “This is empowering information for dealers who have endured, and even thrived, over a year of doom and gloom predictions about our industry.”

EasyCare uncovered information about how dealers with increasing revenues have addressed marketplace challenges differently than dealers whose revenues have fallen. They gathered advice from these successful dealers to share with other dealerships and businesses of all types everywhere.

These results were posted today at http://www.easycare.com/files/easycareresearch.pdf. Electronic copies are available upon request from jsilverberg(at)easycare(dot)com.
