Facility Upgrades, Where Does it End?; Changes in Areas of Responsibility; and Sad Things Can Happen to a Dealership's Work "Family" Member, Too.

Excerpt from Facility Upgrades, Where Does It End? -

Manufacturer demands for facility upgrades continue to cause dealers headaches and expense. Dealers are being required to “voluntarily” commit to facility upgrades, relocations, and/or construction of new or stand alone facilities. If a dealer believes the demands are unreasonable, there are protections under the Pennsylvania Board of Vehicles Act (“Act”), which limit the facility demands a manufacturer can place on a dealer. There are several provisions in the Act that a dealer can utilize in an effort to slow down or reduce a manufacturer’s demands for a renovated, new or relocated facility. This can be accomplished by using the Act’s protections and presenting a business case to the manufacturer, or by filing a protest under the Act with the Dealer Board.
