New Colorado franchise law: SB-219
Warranty Reimbursement at Retail seminar

How to add revenue to your Service & Parts departments

The most significant piece of legislation ever passed for Colorado’s auto dealers got the green light in early May. The Warranty Reimbursement at Retail bill levels the playing field between the manufacturer and the dealer for warranty and recall vehicle repairs.

In short, the bill lets you receive warranty parts and labor reimbursement rates that more closely match those charged for non-warranty work. This new law means a significant boost to your bottom line.

The law goes into effect October 1. And you’ll need to understand how to navigate a complex formula to obtain these higher warranty and recall reimbursement rates.

Please join CADA as Michael Dommermuth, dealer attorney from Fairfield & Woods, P.C., leads this important seminar about the new law, what it can do for your dealership and how to navigate the calculations so you’re reimbursed for warranty work at current market rates.

NADA: Auto Tariffs Will Raise Prices, Limit Choice and Depress Demand for New Cars and Trucks

In comments filed Friday to the U.S. Department of Commerce, NADA made it clear that America’s automobile dealerships are not seeking the imposition of new tariffs or quotas on the automobiles or parts they sell or on the parts they are made of. In fact, the legitimate fear is that any new tariffs or quotas will result in higher vehicle prices and reduced choice for the American automobile buying public.

NADA fully appreciates the Administration’s trade goals, including enhancing the domestic production, sale, and export of goods and services, including automobiles and automotive parts; curbing unfair foreign trade practices involving automobiles and automotive parts and an array of unrelated goods and services; and reducing America’s trade deficits and fostering additional domestic jobs for Americans. But the best tools for achieving the goal of enhanced exports do not include the imposition of tariffs or quotas on imports. Instead, broad-based tariffs will result in significant negative impacts on NADA’s 100% American automobile dealers and the American working families and American businesses who buy automobiles and automotive parts from them. These impacts include higher prices, and a reduction in the number, or even the elimination of, imported vehicle models, thereby reducing competition and customer choice, and ultimately depressing demand.

“The president is rightfully concerned about trade imbalances and manufacturing jobs in the United States,” said NADA President and CEO Peter Welch. “But automobile production today is so deeply integrated across international boundaries that virtually all cars and trucks, domestic and international, have foreign components even if they are assembled in the United States. And a tariff, depending on how it is implemented, could raise prices dramatically for customers and threaten auto industry jobs at home. We look forward to working with the Administration to find solutions that don’t dramatically increase prices or limit choices for our customers.”
