GM/Ebay Will Stress Dealer Network

While I support the creative think of GM and the desire to think out of the box there are many problems with this idea of selling automobiles through Ebay. Selling vehicles on ebay will only validate the need for more sales training by auto dealers not less.

1) GM has used Ebay for a year with Certifified so why pilot this new program in California as GM and dealers would already know the results of this program and all the problems related to… Continue

Lies, Damn Lies, and Statistics!

As I watched the Senate hearings today on CSPAN my blood boiled. When asked about the money they would save by cutting their dealer count these guys, Henderson and Press, engaged in some serious obfuscation. They asserted that by swapping an "under performing" dealer for a "performing dealer" they would pick up the gross profit of the additional sales of the new "performing" dealer.

This country’s economy is ultimately more dependent upon the survival of your local auto dealer than even the much publicized auto manufacturers.

On the Demise of Saturn

I recently read an industry analysis written by Mark Scheiner on the demise of Saturn, now a brand in a huge state of flux within GM. In short he stated that it was a GM opportunity gone wrong. He stated, “The lesson here is that brands whether, they’re products or branding, need time to seed themselves. These are long-term investments in both capital and marketing with branding efforts surrounding them. Most importantly, the messaging needs to remain consistent across all channels, and… Continue

A December To Remember? For A Lot Of Reasons

No matter how tightly or loosely your association with the automotive industry, this is a month of reckoning for so many reasons. But most are still in 'wait and see mode'. That just flat out can't be comfortable and it's not right, so why is it done? If you'd had the proverbial crystal ball, what would you have done months ago (if not years)?
