Each of us needs to get involved with the current efforts to restore dealer rights... www.hometownautodealers.org
provides a web site with information (bottom right) on how to reach out to your legislators.
I sent the following: (Copy, Improve, Make Up Your Own... But Do Something) DTG
Senator... America is built on our constitution... the current auto dealership closings are not acceptable. Listen to the car dealers coming to Washington Tuesday and give their family's and employees an american chance to prevail. WHY WOULDN'T GM and Chrysler give each dealer all makes (available after downsizing products) and let the dealerships battle it out for the strongest and best consumer solution? I have 23 years experience in all aspects of automotive (including manufacturer distribution)... dealerships DO NOT COST MANUFACTURES MONEY. MANUFACTURERS PAY INCENTIVES BY THE CAR... DEALERS PAY FOR THE RIGHT TO OPERATE FRANCHISES. Your assistance is required immediately to correct this inadvertent misstep. Please get directly involved. Thank you,
