Dealership Day

2019 Dealership Day will be on Thursday, March 14th.

Thank you 2018 Dealership Day attendees!

Thank you to all the dealers and dealership employees who attended 2018 Dealership Day in Olympia. Over the course of 140 appointments, Washington new car dealers and dealership employees met with their local legislators and discussed WSADA’s Franchise bills (EHB 2439/ESSB 6137):

  1. Fair compensation for recalled used vehicles. Require that manufacturers compensate dealers 1.75% of fair market trade-in value for used vehicles subject to a recall of 15 days or longer.
  2. Treble damages. Require that manufacturers pay treble damages if they willfully violate the state franchise law.
  3. Standing.  Provide WSADA with clear legal standing to challenge manufacturers who fail to comply with the franchise law.
  4. 90-day notice and a way to dispute agreement changes. Require 90-day advance notice and an opportunity to dispute proposed modifications to an existing franchise agreement.
  5. No unreasonable cross-border sales territory. Prevent manufacturers from assigning territory outside Washington without the dealer’s permission.

Thank you to Diamond level sponsor attendees Darren Murray with American Financial & Automotive Services, Zach Smith with Cox Automotive, Thai Trinh and Ray O’Bannon with Ethos Group, and Scott Rogers with Zurich.
