Restoring Franchised Dealers’ Reputation In New Jersey

Franchised dealers have been a punching bag in the press for much of the last two months thanks to Tesla. While NJ CAR has been defending dealers and the franchise system they represent, on television, on radio and in print, dealers can play a critical role in restoring their reputation and combating some of the misinformation that is inevitable when a debate becomes contentious.If ALL 515 New Jersey dealerships get behind the New Jersey Auto Retailers Unite campaign, it will shine a light on the many great charitable efforts of dealerships across the State. It will also show consumers and elected officials the important role new car dealers play in the economic and charitable life of New Jersey, and it will have a monumental public image impact that benefits the entire industry.The Coalition asks every NJ CAR dealer member to support this ambitious NewJersey Auto Retailers Unite campaign. We can raise an incredible amount of money for The Valerie Fund and show how the auto retail industry is a tremendous force for good in every NewJersey community by working together.Signing Up To Participate Is Easy.
