Sometimes facility upgrades are needed, but that decision must be tied to the particular needs of a dealership and not driven by a one-size-fits-all mandate.

Today, CBT News is airing its coverage on David Westcott, the new chairman of the National Auto Dealers Association (NADA) in Orlando, Fla. While hopeful of the future of the retail automotive industry, Westcott highlighted on a handful of the biggest challenges that dealers are currently facing. A Buick GMC dealer in Burlington, NC, Westcott knows first-hand that a dealers’ relationship with manufactures is at the core of what is hindering the business.

He urged dealers to press manufacturers to ensure that all dealerships, large to small in size, are being treated fairly and impartially. Westcott commented, “Sometimes facility upgrades are needed, but that decision must be tied to the particular needs of a dealership and not driven by a one-size-fits-all mandate.”

Another initiative Westcott brought to the forefront at the NADA convention and expo was an effort to remove government mandates. He motivated dealers to provide feedback on useless policies that are affecting their stores so that NADA could begin the motion to get rid of them.

“The impact that vastly higher fuel economy requirements will have on the number of new vehicles our customers are willing and able to buy could be dramatic,” Westcott added. “And who knows what unintended adverse consequences will result from the major tax reform efforts in Washington.”
