Legislators have expressed overwhelming support for the NJ CAR-backed bill that will strengthen and clarify dealer rights under the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Franchise Practices Act. But automakers have launched an all-out assault on the bill, waging a vigorous lobbying and paid advertising campaign against the bill. Please contact your Senator and tell them why these amendments are important for consumers and the franchised auto retailing industry in New Jersey.
