“The issues posed by stair-step incen­tive pro­grams and by manda­to­ry facil­i­ty upgrades are just two of the most recent exam­ples of man­u­fac­tur­ers intrud­ing into deal­ers’ busi­ness­es,” said West­cott, in remarks today at the NADA Con­ven­tion and Expo.

With diverse mar­kets, some larg­er or more afflu­ent than oth­ers and often locat­ed in the same geo­graph­ic area, West­cott urged deal­ers to press man­u­fac­tur­ers for ways to make sure that all deal­ers, from the largest to the small­est, are treat­ed fair­ly and equi­tably.

West­cott urged deal­ers to become part of an effort to remove gov­ern­ment man­dates by pro­vid­ing feed­back on how “use­less and obso­lete poli­cies” are affect­ing their stores, so that NADA could look into get­ting rid of them.
