ON THE MARK
Don’t be “that guy.”
I want to write about a subject that has been in the news and on my mind:
odometer fraud. Odometer fraud affects our business and has wide-ranging
implications. I have spoken to many dealers who are not aware of the laws even
though they are discussed at both our prelicense and continuing education classes.
Here is the reality: Even though a vehicle 10
model years and older is considered “exempt” by law, if it is known that the mileage
isn’t correct it is still considered TMU! Any
dealer who is altering the mileage on older
cars and is selling them with the mileage as
actual is committing odometer fraud.
News outlets recently reported that Georgia
was the 4th worst in the country for odometer fraud. I can only hope that disgusted
you as much as it did me! Any incidence of
odometer fraud gives our business a black
eye in the media and in the minds of the
consumer even though the majority of our dealers follow the law. If you are not
proactive, you are part of the problem. Help us stop this from occurring in our
state! Odometer fraud lures customers away from legitimate dealers and then
when the customer has a problem or dispute all dealers are lumped into the
same negative category.
We all want to sell our product on an even playing field and that starts with
improving our relationship/reputation with consumers. We don’t need unscrupulous dealers in our state. If you want to make a difference, don’t be the one
who is complaining but is not involved. You have heard this challenge from
me before but I will challenge you again: The GIADA is your association. Get
involved! Any current member in good standing is welcome to join us! Contact
the GIADA office for information regarding our next Board meeting in May at
the beautiful Cuscawilla resort on Lake Oconee. I look forward to seeing a few
new faces there. In the meantime, sell sell sell!

GEORGIA INDEPENDENT
AUTOMOBILE
DEALERS ASSOCIATION
800-472-8101
www.giada.org
GIADA is a not-for-profit industry
trade association that has been the
voice of Georgia’s independent auto
dealers since 1955. GIADA is committed to representing, educating,
and informing Georgia’s most
successful independent motor vehicle dealers. Dealers turn to GIADA
to provide them solutions and answers to business related questions
and consumer related questions.
At present, there are approximately
2,375 GIADA members, 2,150
licensed auto dealers and 225
companies who offer products and
services to Georgia Auto Dealers.
Our primary purpose is to identify
and address the legal and legislative
issues that confront the used car
industry in Georgia. But we do
much more.
Through GIADA’s impressive
network of a wide variety of companies who support our industry,
our members enjoy pre-negotiated
discounts on products and services
they need to be successful in the
car business. We encourage you to
check out the GIADA Dealer Service
Provider Directory. These services
include, but are not limited to auto
auctions, insurance companies,
legal advice, and advertising. All
members receive two coupon books
containing about $38,000 in real
discounts. GIADA also maintains a
large inventory of legal forms dealers
need to conduct business. Members
receive a 30% discount on all forms.
Members also enjoy discounted rates
on all GIADA training programs, or
sometimes can attend for free.
THE PULSE OF GIADA
Staying Ahead this Year
As always, the GIADA has been busy providing required education, following important legislation in the capitol and
proactively looking out for the best interests of our industry. Take a moment and review this quick summary.
CE Classes
We are wrapping up our final CE classes, with only two more in March. We have one
scheduled in Macon on March 14, and one in Marietta at the Galleria on March 17.
The state licensing division requires completion of the CE class for all used car dealers
in order to renew the license for 2014-2016. Any dealer who fails to complete the CE
class will not be able to continue to operate legally after March 31, 2014.
I’m pleased to report that many dealers have sought me out to tell me how much they
enjoyed the CE class this session. I know we cannot make everyone happy and some
people don’t care about the class at all, but the attendees agree: the speakers were very
good and the training content this year was relevant and robust.
Legislative Session
Week 5 of the 2014 legislative session was cut short by the second wave of ice and
snow that shut down the metro Atlanta area and most of Georgia. Barring any
additional delays, Day 30 - aka Crossover Day - is currently scheduled for March 3, and Sine Die/Final Adjournment is
scheduled for March 20. Since this is a primary year, many of the law makes are anxious to get the session completed so
they can continue their campaigns.
HB 729 has language in it that corrects the trade-in over-inflating problem, and we expect this to be resolved. There are
also provisions in this bill that would allow a dealer to apply for a refund of TAVT fees when a deal backs out after the tax
has been paid. A uniform bill of sale is also proposed in this bill. We will keep our members updated as to any new legislative developments as they occur.
Additionally, GIADA and our team are looking into how to properly address those licensed dealers who are making
money by charging others to use their license for auction access. There are Craigslist ads running right now offering the
uninhibited use of someone’s license for a fee. This type of activity hurts everyone in the car business and it needs to stop.
We will keep you updated on this matter.
It is always a pleasure to serve our members and we look forward to seeing you when you register for your CE class if you
haven’t already taken it. Remember, do NOT jump online to renew your license until after you complete your CE class.
There are only two more CE classes, so you better mark your calendars now.

THE CAR LAWYER
Compliance Tip
By Thomas B. Hudson and Nicole Frush Munro
Happy New Year!
After all of the holiday celebrations,
we’re back with our collection of selected legislative and regulatory highlights. We also recap some of the many
auto sale and financing lawsuits we
follow each month. Remember - what
we report here does not capture every
recent development. We select those we
think might be particularly important or
interesting to dealers.
We also include items from other states.
Why? We want you to be able to see new
legal developments and trends. Also,
another state’s laws might be a lot like
your state’s laws. If Attorneys General
or plaintiffs’ lawyers are pursuing particular types of claims in other states, those
claims might soon appear in your state.
Note that this column does not offer
legal advice. Always check with your
own lawyer to learn how what we report
might apply to you, or if you have any
questions.

FEDERAL LAW
Discrimination
On December 20, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and Department of Justice ordered Ally Financial
Inc. and Ally Bank to pay $80 million
in damages to minority borrowers and
$18 million in penalties. The CFPB and
DOJ alleged that more than 235,000
minority borrowers paid higher interest
rates for auto financing between April
2011 and December 2013. The agencies
claimed that the alleged discrimination was a result of Ally's discretionary
pricing system, which allows dealers to
mark up Ally's wholesale buy rate up to
250 basis points. Ally is also required
to implement a compliance program to
prevent future discrimination that may
result from dealer markups. Alterna-
THE CAR LAWYER
connection with her car purchase, the
buyer signed a buyer's order and a retail
installment contract. The buyer's order
contained an arbitration clause on the
reverse side. The RIC did not contain
an arbitration provision, but contained
an integration clause that stated: "This
Contract contains the entire agreement
between you and us relating to this
contract." When the buyer sued the
dealership and the assignee of her RIC,
the court sent the matter to binding arbitration.
tively, it may eliminate such markups
altogether and move to a non-discretionary dealer compensation structure.
This is the federal government's largest
auto finance discrimination settlement
ever. Think the CFPB isn’t deadly serious about discrimination? Think
again.
Risk-Based Pricing
On December 19, the Federal Trade
Commission reached a $1.9 million settlement with Time Warner Cable, Inc.,
resolving allegations that TWC failed
to give risk-based pricing notices under the FTC's Risk-Based Pricing Rule.
TWC obtained customers' credit reports to determine whether they qualified for service. If their credit reports
contained negative information, TWC
would require the customer to pay a
deposit or pre-pay the first month's
bill. This is the first case the FTC has
brought since finalizing its amended
RBP Rule in 2011. Is your dealership in
compliance with the RBP Rule?
Arbitration
Many dealers employ mandatory,
pre-dispute arbitration provisions as
a first line of defense against class actions. On December 12, the CFPB released preliminary research on arbitration clauses used with credit cards,
checking accounts, payday loans, and
prepaid cards. The research indicates that
such clauses are commonly used by large
banks in credit card and checking account
agreements and that roughly 9 out of 10
clauses allow banks to prevent consumers
from participating in class actions.
The CFPB also found that while millions of consumers are subject to arbitration clauses in the markets studied,
few consumers file arbitration cases. In
the second phase of its study, the Bureau will look at whether consumers
are aware of the terms of arbitration
clauses and whether such clauses influence consumers' buying decisions.
The CFPB held a hearing on arbitration
in Dallas, Texas on December 12. Director Richard Cordray spoke and consumer groups, industry representatives,
and members of the public testified.
The study and the hearing may be the
first steps in prohibiting the use of arbitration provisions. If you’d like to stay
up on the CFPB’s arbitration initiatives,
a recording of the event is available on
the CFPB's website.
Social Media
On December 11, the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council
released final guidance on the applicability of consumer protection and
compliance laws, regulations, and policies to social media activities by banks,
savings associations, credit unions,
and nonbank entities supervised by the
CFPB. The guidance, effective immediately, does not impose new requirements, but is intended to help the institutions understand potential consumer
compliance and legal risks, and reputation and operational risks, associated
with using social media, along with
expectations for managing those risks.
LITIGATION
Retail Installment Sales Contract's
Integration Clause Negated Arbitration Agreement in Buyer's Order: In
After the arbitrator entered an award
for the buyer, she moved to vacate the
award. The trial court denied the motion. The appellate court reversed.
Noting that the buyer's order contained
an arbitration agreement, but the RIC
did not, the appellate court concluded
there was no enforceable arbitration
agreement between the buyer and the
dealership. See Knight v. Springfield
Hyundai, 2013 Pa. Super. LEXIS 3185
(Pa. Super. December 2, 2013).
State Court Lacked Jurisdiction over
Out-of-State Dealership that Sold Car
Online to State Resident: A Missouri
resident bought a car on eBay from a
Texas dealership. The car failed shortly
afterward, and the buyer sued the dealership in Missouri. The trial court dismissed the claims for lack of personal
jurisdiction over the dealership. The
Court of Appeals of Missouri affirmed.
A dealership executive testified that
approximately 30 to 35% of the dealership's auto sales involved the use of
eBay, and .86% of total sales over the
past five years had been to Missouri
residents. The dealership did not maintain offices, have employees or advertise in Missouri.
The buyer filed an affidavit listing the
conduct occurring in Missouri related
to the car and its purchase. These inContinued on page 9

cluded the bid submission, review of
information about the car, execution of
the retail installment contract, acceptance of delivery of the car, and repairs
to the car. The appellate court noted,
however, that the buyer performed
these actions, not the dealership, and
that there was no evidence that the
dealership engaged in conduct intentionally designed to solicit business
from Missouri consumers. See Andra
v. Left Gate Property Holding, Inc.,
2013 Mo. App. LEXIS 1403 (Mo. App.
November 26, 2013).
Seller of Car at Auction Liable for
Damages from Accident that Occurred Before Title Had Transferred
to Buyer: A dealership delivered a car
to an auction. The winning bidder
thought there was a problem with the
car that required repairs. An auction
company employee had an accident
while driving the car to a mechanic.
The driver of the other car in the
accident sued the auction company. The auction company then sued
the dealership’s insurer, arguing that
the dealership was the title owner of
the car when the accident occurred,
and, that the dealership's insurer was
required to indemnify the auction
company.
The trial court granted summary
judgment for the auction company.
The court determined that the dealership was the vehicle’s owner at the
time of the accident because it neither signed an application for transfer of title nor actually transferred
title, following Michigan's strict title
transfer law. Therefore, the dealership's insurer was required to provide primary liability coverage up
to the limit of its garage policy and
indemnify the auction company for
its defense costs. See Flint Auto Auc-
tion, Inc. v. Universal Underwriters
Insurance Co., 2013 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 172555 (E.D. Mich. December 9,
2013).
Representations About Reliability
and Condition of Car May Support
Breach of Warranty Claim: Car buyers sued the dealership where they
bought a used car that suffered engine failure six days after the purchase. The dealership moved to dismiss certain claims. The court denied
the motion with respect to a breach of
warranty claim based on the dealership's representations that the car was
a "'good, reliable car'" and was "'in
good road-worthy condition.'" The
court found, however, that the buyers
alleged a plausible claim for breach of
express warranty. See Lester v. Wow
Car Company, Ltd., 2013 U.S. Dist.
LEXIS 162622 (S.D. Ohio November
14, 2013).
Warranty Claims Failed Where Manufacturer Not Given Chance to Cure
First Defect and Timely Repaired
Second Defect: After a buyer bought
a new Ford, the rear liftgate window shattered. She had the window
repaired at her expense after determining that the warranty would not
cover the repair. Later, the window
shattered again.
She asked the dealership to replace it
at no cost. The dealership refused because the original repair had not been
made by an authorized dealer, but Ford
Motor Company eventually agreed to
cover the cost. The buyer later learned
that Ford had issued Technical Service
Bulletins about the defect and authorized dealerships to replace the glass
at Ford's cost if there was no evidence
of impact or external damage.
The buyer sued Ford for violating the
Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act and
for breach of express and implied
warranties. The trial court granted
summary judgment for Ford.
The appellate court affirmed, finding that her claim regarding the
first incident failed because she
did not give Ford the opportunity
to cure the defect, as required by
the MMWA and Ohio law. As to
the second incident, the appellate
court found that Ford's 3-day delay in agreeing to repair the window and its repair within a week
of the breakage did not constitute a
failure to cure the defect within a
reasonable time under the MMWA
and Ohio law, especially where the
broken window was not a Ford part.
See Kuns v. Ford Motor Company,
2013 U.S. App. LEXIS 23366 (6th Cir.
(N.D. Ohio) November 19, 2013).

OUTREACH
From Atlanta to Roatan
with Love
A
by Michelle Groover, Members AutoChoice
re we lucky to be able to own
and operate used car dealerships for a living? That is
a question I often ask myself after a
stressful day or series of stressful days.
Then I begin to reflect on how well I
am able to meet the basic needs of my
family each day and how fortunate
we are. I cannot imagine my children
going to bed hungry or even attending school without access to the basic
necessities that so many of us take for
granted. It was this thought process
that gave me the idea to help children
in Honduras who are not as fortunate
to have their basic needs met. It seems
that in today’s world, many parents feel
the overwhelming need to compensate
for everything they did not have growing up. As a result, they may give their
kids too much and unknowingly create
in their kids a false sense of entitlement
and lack of empathy for the less fortunate all over the world.
I say that because I have actually seen
people and companies helping the less
fortunate outside of the United States
and have overheard people say “why
would those people donate money or
help those outside the U.S. when we
need help here with the current state of
our economy”. My answer to those critics: empathy. We should all have empathy, not just for the families in the U.S.,

and the GIADA, we were able to make
this a mission trip that won’t be forgotten anytime soon.
The mission was to fly over 1200 miles
to Roatan, Honduras, to deliver hundreds of backpacks filled with basic
school supplies. All were items that
most of these children had never
been afforded the privilege of owning. We were able to pack and travel
with almost one hundred backpacks
and supplies. Then, once we arrived
in Honduras, we scoured all the local stores and cleaned out each one
for additional supplies needed. After
hitting every store on the island, we
were finally ready to assemble all the
bags we would distribute.
The end result was exciting to see as
hundreds of school-aged kids beamed
with pride, ready and excited for the
next school year to begin. Although we

THE NEWS IN BRIEF
ADVERTISER INDEX
Delinquencies, Debt Levels
Ready to Rise
TRANSUNION’S ANNUAL AUTO
LOAN FORECAST calls for increases in both delinquency and debt levels
during 2014.
The national auto loan delinquency
rate (the ratio of borrowers 60 or more
days past due) is projected to rise to
1.19 percent by the end of 2014 from an
estimated 1.10 percent at the conclusion of 2013.
Auto loan debt per borrower is also
expected to jump more than $1,000 to
$17,966 in the fourth quarter of 2014
from a projected $16,942 in the fourth
quarter of 2013.
Since 2007, the auto loan delinquency
rate has been as low as 0.86 percent in
the second quarter of 2012 and as high
as 1.59 percent in the fourth quarter
of 2008. On average, the delinquency
rate during the fourth quarter between
2007 and 2012 was 1.32 percent.
Subprime Buyers Less
Loyal to Brands
A NEW BRAND LOYALTY REPORT FROM CARFINANCE.COM
shows that below-prime car buyers are
less loyal than the average car buyer, are
making practical choices as they re-enter the market, and are trading in slightly younger vehicles this year than last.
The report lists the top five brands for
loyalty and purchase, as well as the most
traded-in model years for below-prime
car buyers. Based on an analysis of
trade-in data from January to September, the report offers a unique snapshot
of the large population of car-buyers
who are below prime.
Below-prime car buyers, according to
the report, are most loyal to Kia over12 | GIADA Independent Auto Dealer Jan/Feb 2014
all, although Nissan came in a strong
second. When looking at the brands
consumers are buying most when trading in, Chevrolet came in at number
one, followed by Ford. So, while import brands score highest for loyalty, it
is the domestics that these buyers are
opting for more than any other brand.
While the average age of a vehicle on
the road today is 11.4 years, the average age of a vehicle traded in by these
below-prime car buyers is 8.8 years, a
6 percent decrease from the previous
year’s 9.4. The most traded-in model
year is 2006 and the top five years traded-in all pre-date the recession.

the first two subjects of an ongoing column highlighting many who
have built the GIADA into one of the
largest and most robust associations of
its kind in the United States.
Dennis Pope, manager of People’s Financial in Mableton, GA, has automobiles in his blood. For almost 30 years,
Dennis has worked with the GIADA,
winning virtually every award available from its membership. It makes
sense that Pope has been showered
with these accolades, because, as he
puts it, “I’ve served on most committees and boards over the last 28 years. I
was a part of the GIADA back when it
was small. There is not much I haven’t
done.”
It’s exactly that kind of “do what is
needed” attitude that Pope has harnessed to help the GIADA grow. But,

more importantly, Pope sees real value
in the organization and how it helps
its members. “I can’t believe a dealer
would not want to join the GIADA,”
Pope says. “You know, they don’t know
what they don’t know. When you are
starting a dealership or even if you are

my business. I’ve learned from dealers
and I’ve seen how what we do can make
a real difference in their business. This

is the way to be successful.”

Sometimes, the way into an

About 15 years ago Glen Reeves, of

the GIADA. “Folks like Rainwater and
Lewallen were in the organization and
said that the GIADA would be a great
value. They were right.”
He found the first meeting interesting
and a gateway to learning more about
the industry. “Once I started attended, I saw that the people around the
GIADA, including the members, office
staff, leadership, were all committed to
growth and innovation.”
Reeves, whose company was founded
in 1988 and offers custom solutions to
meet dealers’ needs, saw that his customers were in the association, too.
“You meet a lot of good people and my
customers were involved, so it was a
natural choice.”
Once a member, Reeves became involved in membership and a variety
of other committees. “The GIADA
has made a lot of changes – has really grown. It’s doing a lot of good thing
and these are things that dealers take
for granted. That’s why membership is
so important.”
Both Pope and Reeves draw attention to the representation GIADA has
in Atlanta and DC. “The GIADA has
two lobbyists who are working for our
good,” Pope says. Reeves adds, “People
are making decisions about your livelihood in Atlanta and in DC. If you are
not a member, you aren’t part of that
discussion – aren’t represented. The
GIADA is there protecting your rights
and ensuring the laws are fair for the
industry.”

Digital Ads Exert Extra Influence
Digital advertising continues to grow its influence
among car shoppers.
A new report, “Digital Influence on
Auto Intenders,” from Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB) and Prosper Insights finds that consumers are almost
twice as likely to be swayed by auto-focused digital marketing than the general population (21 percent vs. 12 percent).
Moreover, automotive shoppers are 71
percent more likely to be influenced by
digital advertising across multiple retail
categories than the average consumer.
Other key findings highlight digital
lifestyle differences between auto buyers and the typical adult. Automotive
intenders are:
• More prone to own smart phones

2.8 Million Reasons to Take
Your Dealership Mobile
by Mike McFall, President, Black Book Online Division
It is estimated that about 2.8 million
new car sales this year will come from
customers utilizing mobile technology during the car-shopping process.
What’s even more astounding—consider that just a few short years ago this
number was less than half that total.
According to Forrester Research in The
Wall Street Journal, between 2008 and
2011, the percentage of U.S. adults who
accessed the Internet on a daily basis
from PCs grew from 54 to 62 percent.
During that same time, mobile Internet users shot up from four percent to
26 percent.
Looking ahead, the number of mobile connected devices will exceed the
number of people on Earth. According
to Cisco’s Global Mobile Data Traffic
Forecast Update, it is expected that
there will be over 10 billion mobile
18 | GIADA Independent Auto Dealer Jan/Feb 2014

population of 7.3 billion.
nities to engage customers on mobile
devices.”
Mobile technology is changing the way
customers shop, just as the Internet
enabled more engagement and greater
transparency years ago. There’s a good
chance that as many as 50 percent of
you are reading this article on a mobile device. Simply put, if you can’t live
without your smart phone, why would
you force your customers to live without one?
But, the movement to mobile must be
done the right way; otherwise dealers
will simply be left with a smart phone
version of their existing website. The
problem that dealers face when they try
to integrate an effective mobile strategy is that they view mobile as an extension of their website. Customers expect
a different experience on their mobile
device compared to a traditional website. Most notably, they want simplicity and ease of use with mobile. Customers also want more transparency
during the shopping process, and the
right mobile strategy helps accomplish
increased transparency.
“Compared to our website traffic, mobile was just about 10 percent two years
ago. Today I would put that number
at about 30 percent and growing fast.”
Said Rick Trinkl, Vice President of
Training at the Larry H. Miller Company. “Because of this growth, it’s been

gy is all about engagement, then it’s important to implement applications that
are focused toward inventory, price
quote/trade appraisals, “click to call,”
and service.
Dealers should conduct an audit of
what their current mobile experience
looks like. Start by asking if the mobile
experience simply mirrors the online
website. Does it feel like a one-size-fitsall approach?
How does it tie into your branding and
marketing efforts? How does it set you
apart? And, are you using the special phone technologies effectively?
Functions like use of location services, live “clickable” phone numbers, interactive mapping and home
screen bookmarking of your site are
ways to leverage common phone
functions. Live links to your Facebook and Twitter can build engagement and repeat use.
“We started by asking our web provider for their recommendations on best
practices. Then we began adding the
features we thought customers would
appreciate,” added Trinkl.
To follow are several applications that
every dealer should have when launching a mobile offering for customers:

Enables customers to quickly find vehicles immediately available at the dealership.

MARKETING YOUR DEALERSHIP
Creating a Social Media
Plan for a Car Dealership
by Courtney Gordner
F
or car dealerships, competition
is imminent. At the end of 2011,
there were nearly 18,000 car dealerships in the United States. Although
car dealerships vary in the types of vehicles they sell, they all target a similar
audience: people who want to buy a car
. Due to this rampant competition and
continuous demand, an effective marketing and social media plan is even
more essential for car dealerships than
many other types of businesses. As a
result, car dealerships should employ
the strategies below to get started on a
stellar and properly targeted social media campaign.
Tailor Content Stylistically
Based on the Social Media
Platform
Having an established presence on
Facebook and Twitter is common sense
when the term “social media campaign” comes to mind, but perhaps it’s
just as important for car dealerships to
develop a presence on lesser-known,
but still thriving, social media alternatives like Google +, Pinterest, Vine, and
Instagram.
Registering and setting up an account
on all of these networks is easy and
free, but it’s important to discern their
differences and build content based on
these. For example, the only content
permissible on Vine are videos up to
six seconds long, so a different strategy must be employed on this network
20 | GIADA Independent Auto Dealer Jan/Feb 2014
MARKETING YOUR DEALERSHIP
as opposed to a different social media
platform like Instagram, which either
emphasizes photos or lengthier videos.
Mobile video content is one of the most
emerging social media trends of the
past year, so a car dealership that already has a following on platforms like
Vine and Instagram are already one
step ahead of their competitors.
flexible posting of content, from
videos to photos, so any variation
on the content above would work.
Re-posting Instagram and Vine
content to Twitter, Facebook and
Google + is recommended as well.
chosen, a contest can be a great
way to obtain social media followers by requiring entrants to follow
the dealership on a social network
or two to enter. Either requiring a
follow or response on social media
Host Contests and Other
Calls-to-Action on Social Media
One of the most effective ways of obtaining social media followers, and
consequentially leads, is to utilize
calls-to-action on social media. This
is possible no matter the social media
platform. Contests, and specifically the
prospect of earning free prizes by simply commenting or clicking ‘Like’, are
desirable to the masses. For car dealerships, it’s up to the individual dealership to choose between two types of
contests to host:
1. A contest with a very substantial
prize (a car, vacation, etc.), but only
one winner.
2. A contest with smaller prizes (a
car discount, restaurant gift certificate, local business coupon such
as 50% off Web Design Company,
etc.) and several winners. Deciding
between these two types of contests
is relative to the individual dealership. Regardless of the option
ensures visitors will remain connected to the dealership, even after
the contest is complete. You can
promote this on social media and
web sites by mentioning “Win a
free ___ now! All you have to do to
enter is follow us on Facebook and
Twitter!”
Be Yourself, Not a Robot,
When Posting or Tweeting
One of the biggest no-no’s for a car dealership on social media is to incessantly
list inventory. Blindly providing a listing like this is likely to overwhelm potential leads, as well as suggest to them
you would prefer customers to take the
lead rather than take charge yourself.
This may imply insecurities regarding
inventory, which is something dealerships do not want to convey.
Alternatively, personalize social media content as much as possible. For
example, if a car dealership wants to
promote a sleek new convertible on social media, there are several different
approaches to take. Some ideas include:
• Facebook—A photo or video of the
convertible in action, with call-toaction text asking followers if they
have any nostalgic memories of
being in a convertible.
• Twitter—A short tweet along the
lines of, “Check out how this convertible is different from anything
you’ve ever driven before,” with a
link to the dealership’s site.
• Vine—A humorous six-second
video that shows some dealership
staff members riding suavely with
sunglasses on in the convertible.
This video should be intended to
go viral.
• Instagram—A series of photos
from the Vine video shoot, or an
extended version of the Vine video.
• Google+—Google+ allows for
If a car dealership has a widespread
presence across various social media
platforms, comes across as personable
and interesting on these platforms,
and encourages user engagement via
calls to action, their social media plan
is already leaps ahead of most car
dealerships. By staying true and consistent to these methods, a car dealership’s number of leads should increase
exponentially. n

8 Advertising Potholes

Law Judge.
The companies named in the 10 lawsuits include four California dealers: Casino Auto Sales in La Puente,
Rainbow Auto Sales in South Gate,
Honda of Hollywood in Los Angeles,
and Norm Reeves Honda in Cerritos.
Also the subject of law enforcement
action are Fowlerville Ford in Fowlerville, Michigan; Nissan of South
Atlanta in Morrow, Georgia; Infiniti of Clarendon Hills in Clarendon
Hills, Illinois; and Paramount Kia
in Hickory, North Carolina. In addition, the FTC took action against
Texas-based Southwest Kia companies, including New World Auto Imports in Dallas, New World Auto Imports in Rockwall, and Hampton Two
Auto Corporations in Mesquite. A
lawsuit against Courtesy Auto Group
in Attleboro, Massachusetts is head-
Deceptive pricing
Some dealers lured prospective buyers onto the lot by advertising vehicles at a specific
low price. But the real price was $5,000
more. (The complaint mentions that
some of these ads involved a mix of English and Spanish.)
22 | GIADA Independent Auto Dealer Jan/Feb 2014
You’ll want to review the complaints
to see the allegations in each particular case, but busy dealers can supplement their TO DO lists with these TO
DON’TS, ad-related practices the FTC
challenged as illegal in one of more of
the cases:
Deceptive teaser
payments
In some cases, dealers advertised attention-grabbing low
monthly payments. What they didn’t
explain up front was that those were
temporary teaser payments that would
get jacked up after a short period.
The FTC says dealers didn’t state the
number of payments and how much
they would be after those first few low
monthly payments.
Undisclosed balloon
payments
Another dealer advertised
low monthly payments without clearly disclosing that buyers would
owe a final balloon payment. What’s
more, the FTC says the dealer didn’t
disclose the amount of that balloon –
in this case, over $10,000.
False $0 up-front
leasing claims
Some companies advertised
that consumers wouldn’t have
to pay anything up front to lease a car.
Not true, says the FTC. In fact, lurking
behind those goose eggs were hefty fees
and other amounts due up front.
Undisclosed lease terms
The FTC says some companies touted low up-front
amounts and low monthly
payments in their ads without clearly
explaining that the transaction was actually a lease and involved substantial
hidden fees.
Hidden rates
In one case, the FTC charged
that the dealer claimed to
offer 0% for 60 months. But
FEATURE | ADVERTISING TIPS
as it turned out, the rate applied only
if people bought a new car for up to
a certain dollar amount – in one instance $12,000. If the car of a consumer’s dreams was, say, $18,000, the buyer
would have to pay a higher rate, and
that rate wasn’t clearly stated.
Bogus prize promotions
One dealership used a mailer
to get folks in the door, falsely claiming the consumer had

key credit- or lease-related terms in ads.
To settle the FTC lawsuits, the companies have signed proposed orders that
will change how they do business in
the future. Notable terms in these legally binding settlements: a ban on ads
that misrepresent the cost to buy, lease,
or finance a vehicle and a prohibition
on other deceptive claims about pricing, sale, leasing, or financing. When
charged in the complaint, the orders
mandate that dealers abide by TILA
and the Consumer Leasing Act. Also
forbidden: bogus claims about sweepstakes, prizes, or other incentives. n
Credit and leasing
violations
In many of the cases, the FTC
charged that companies violated the Truth in Lending Act (TILA),

Reg M – long-standing laws that any
dealer should be familiar with. One

SALES MANAGEMENT
10 Tips for Closing a Sale
by Thomas Phelps, PWS, Inc.
I
f
you
asked a
hundred
sales professionals for their
best tips on closing
a sale, you would get a hundred different responses. You would
hear the old school crowd preaching
the benefits of the assumptive and Colombo closes. The newer breed would
claim that a sale is simply the result of
the relationship and rapport that you
have built with the customer. While
closing techniques are as varied as the
sales professionals employing them,
there are some tried and true tips to effectively close a sale.
Earn the Right
Before you can expect to close a sale,
you must first earn the right to ask for
the sale. You earn the right by delivering on your promises and by following
up on customer questions. You earn
the right by showing up for appointments on time, prepared and eager to
serve the customer. Focus each call on
how you can help the customer instead
of what you can get from the customer,
and you will eventually earn the right
to ask for the sale.
Ask for Next Steps
After any customer call or completed
action item, ask the customer what he
28 | GIADA Independent Auto Dealer Jan/Feb 2014
or she thinks should be the next steps.
If they are unsure, make suggestions of
next steps that move you closer to a close.
Remember that the next step could be to
close the sale. Often times, inexperienced
sales professionals add too many steps
before trying to close a sale.
Each step you take in a sales cycle
should be leading you towards partnering with your customer. With each
customer interaction, remind yourself
of where you want to go and focus your
efforts on moving in that direction.
Without knowing where you are going,
you may find yourself taking steps that
lead you away from closing the sale.
Keep focused on your purpose during
each step in the sales process.
Give and Receive
In most sales cycles, your customers
will ask for something. Whether they
ask for information, a lower price,
product demonstrations or customer
referrals, expect that you will be giving a lot during the sales cycle. A good
rule to remember is that you should
always ask for something after you
give something. For example, if the
customer asks for a demonstration,
ask for their commitment to move forward to the next steps if the demonstration proves that your product or
service will fulfill their need. While it
may be better to give than to receive,
in the sales world, giving and receiving are both equal players with equal
amounts of importance.
Sell More Value
In a price-sensitive market, the winner
is the one who is able to show more value than the asked for price. Value is determined not by the market but by your
customer. Show them that your product
or service has more intrinsic value than
the price, and the sale is yours.
Under Promise
A mistake that many rookie sales professionals make is to promise something
that they cannot deliver. For example, if
you are selling a product that requires
the item be shipped, tell the customer
when to expect the item and never suggest that you can get it to them sooner
than what is realistic. It is better to tell
them that delivery will take longer than
what it probably will.
Over Deliver
If you followed tip No. 6, you will have
ample opportunity to over deliver. De-
SALES MANAGEMENT
The golden rule in sales
is simple: "After a
closing question is
asked, the first person
who talks, loses."
livering an item earlier than expected
will be seen by most customers as you
going above and beyond for them.
However, if you've over promised,
you've probably set yourself up to under deliver. This creates a diminished
sense of value in the customer's mind,
making it more challenging to close
the sale.
You will have competition in every
sale. Competition can come in the
form of another company or from the
potential of your customer making no
decision. If you put down your com-
Georgia
Insurance
Associates
petition, you immediately put the customer on the defensive. Doing so may
cost you the sale. Instead, praise the
competition where they are strong and
point out where your company outshines everyone else.
Prepare and Plan
If you’ve done your work and have
built more perceived value than the
price you are asking, it’s time for you to
prepare and to plan for the close. Preparing includes gathering all the information, paperwork, forms, etc that the
customer will need to move forward.
Planning means to anticipate any last
minute objections and how you will respond to them.
Close Your Mouth
The golden rule in sales is simple:
"After a closing question is asked, the
first person who talks, loses." In other
words, if you've earned the right to ask
for a sale, ask for the sale then say noth-
ing. Rookie sales professionals often
talk themselves into and out of a sale.
Their excitement and nervousness put
their mouths on auto-drive and they
often end up either missing a buying
signal or, worse yet, keep talking and
end up bringing up something that
the customer hadn't thought about yet.
New thoughts in a closing situation
usually result in sales delays.
The temptation to talk is great but once
you learn how to resist the temptation
and how to close your mouth, your
sales closing percentages will increase. n

LEGALLY SPEAKING
Reviewing Your Retail
Installment Sales Contract
10 Things You Need to Know
by Debra Dawn, Leedom Group’s General Counsel & Compliance Director
A
s we start a new year, now is
the time to re-read and bring
up to date old operating documents that you likely have not reviewed
in several years. DMS providers do not
do this for you. Accordingly, it is highly likely that versions you currently use
may not have been modified in several
years. One of the most important documents to review is the Retail Installment Sales Contract which is utilized
in virtually all your sales and forms the
basis for the agreement between the
dealership and the customer.
Here are 10 things you should review in
regards to your Retail Installment Sales
Contract.
1
Have you drafted the appropriate
corporate documents to substantiate the transaction? If your dealership does not have a Related Finance
Company, this is not an issue for you
and you can proceed to the next point.
However, if you do have an RFC there
must be a Purchase Agreement in place
between the dealership and the RFC.
That document must be approved by
the Board of Directors of both companies. It must state how each contract is
being purchased. You must also have a
Repurchase Agreement or a provision
in the Purchase Agreement delineating in detail the circumstances under
which the dealership is required to re-
30 | GIADA Independent Auto Dealer Jan/Feb 2014
purchase the Retail Installment Sales
Contract, when the repurchase is to
take place and for how much. If you
do not have such a Repurchase Agreement, you cannot apply for a sales tax
credit upon repossession.
2
Have you decided whether to
mandate arbitration? The decision as to whether or not to require a
customer to arbitrate grievances depends upon the level of concern regarding class actions. If you do embrace arbitration, the dealership should
be willing to front the cost of case management and filing fees for your customer in order to ensure enforceability
of the provision. In many cases, arbitration may be more costly than small
claims actions. Furthermore, the rules
in arbitration are far more lax than the
rules of evidence in court. Arbitrators
also have a tendency to “split the baby”
no matter what the set of facts. If you
do elect to arbitrate, the method of arbitration must be carefully spelled out
in the contract.
3
Does your state have a “cooling
off” period? If it does, the timeframe within which a customer can
cancel the contract must be identified.
If your state is one of those that does
not provide for cancellation due to a
customer’s change of mind, I would
recommend a provision called “No
Cooling Off Period” which tells the
customer that state law does not provide a cancellation period for the contract and informing them that their
signature is final and binding.
4
Do you have risk of loss language?
It is important to tell the customer
that they will be bound by the contract
even if the vehicle is lost, stolen, damaged or destroyed.
5
Are the events of default complete? A good provision provides
for default under a variety of circumstances. All contracts have language
which protects the seller in the events of
payment stoppage, bankruptcy, property lien or violation of contract terms
and conditions. However, a higher level of protection is achieved when language is incorporated which includes
more general provisions such as, “We
reasonably believe that you are unable
to perform your obligations under the
contract” and “We discover that you
have made a false or misleading statement in an attempt to obtain credit.”
6
Are your rights in the event of
default clearly spelled out? Although it is common to state that, in
the event of default, all payments are
due and owing and the vehicle may
be repossessed without notice, a less
common provision requires the buyer
LEGALLY SPEAKING
to deliver the property to you. I also
recommend language stating that the
dealership may attach or garnish a
buyer’s disposable earnings, whether or
not you are or become a head of family
consistent with state and federal law.
7
Do you have the right to run continuing credit reports? Although
you have likely obtained the initial
right to obtain a credit report by means
of the credit application, in the event of
nonpayment the dealership or finance
company may wish to run additional reports to locate buyers and/or co-buyers.
This provision should be in the contract.
8
If you offer optional service contracts, have you stated that they
are not required in order to obtain
financing? This language is likely in
the optional service contract, but only
infrequently have I seen it in the Retail
Installment Sales Contract.
9
If you require full coverage insurance, is the buyer required to
name the dealer as an additional insured? Although it is acceptable to use
a separate Power of Attorney form to
obtain authorization from the customer to negotiate with an insurance
company in the event of loss, all the
insurance provisions you are requiring of the buyer (including maximum
deductibles) should be spelled out in
the contract.
10
If you use a GPS to locate AND
for starter interrupt, are those
possibilities both spelled out in the
contract? In virtually all my compliance audits, there is a separate document signed at the time of the sale
indicating that the customer agrees
that a GPS device may be installed.
However, the Retail Installment Sales
contract does not indicate that the
dealership is entitled to use starter
interrupt capabilities.
The Retail Installment Sales Contract is an integrated document. This
means that no additional provisions
may be introduced that have not been
covered in the contract (although ancillary documents may be used for
further explanation). All rights and
responsibilities must appear in the
actual Retail Installment Sales Contract, or in an addendum to that document clearly marked as such, attached
to the contract, and signed by the parties. Best practices are to incorporate
any and all material provisions into
your base agreement to avoid enforceability issues in the future. n

Equifax Reports Strongest
Auto Origination Volume in
Eight Years
The latest Equifax National Consumer
Credit Trends Report indicates that the
automobile lending sector continues
to thrive. From January-October 2013,
the total number of new auto loans
originated was 20.2 million, totaling
$405.2 billion and representing the
highest origination total for that time
in eight years.
“Auto delinquencies have declined to
levels last seen in mid-2006, and the
strength in the performance of loans
booked in the last few years is helping
to make credit more widely available
to those with higher-risk credit profiles, namely subprime borrowers,”
said Equifax Chief Economist Amy
Crews Cutts. “The choices consumers
are making with the types of cars they
are buying have changed in the aftermath of the Great Recession, with a
heavy emphasis on value for the dollar.
Demand for new cars is rising, but the
mix is now shifted towards economically and environmentally friendly features.”
Additional metrics for new credit include:
• Year-over-year, the total balance of
new loans January-October 2013
increased 14.7%, while the total
number of new loans increased
11.6%;
• Subprime auto lending now
accounts for 31 percent of all auto
34 | GIADA Independent Auto Dealer Jan/Feb 2014
loans originated today;
• October 2013 auto loan amount
totals also hit an eight year high
for the month at $39 billion; and
• The total balance of new credit
for auto loans January-October
2013 represents 49% of all new
non-mortgage consumer credit.
“It’s clear as we analyze the auto finance
segment that auto lenders are doing a
great job in accessing risk, managing
their portfolios, and making credit
available to customers who need transportation to get to work or simply want
to enjoy some of the great new models
that manufacturers are producing,”
said Lou Loquasto, Equifax Auto Finance Vertical Leader. “The industry’s
ever-growing sophistication in using
credit and non-credit data to aid decision-making is one of the key reasons
for the health of this segment. The biggest challenge that Equifax is hearing
in the market today is shrinking yields,
as more lenders look to auto finance as
a source of quality receivables.” n

OTHER HIGHLIGHTS
from the most recent
Equifax data include:
Balances on outstanding auto
loans ($859.6 billion) and the
total number of existing loans
(62.3 million) in December 2013
are the highest in more than five
years;
By source, loans funded by
banks, savings and loans
and credit unions are at $417.2
billion, while the total number of
loans is 30.9 million – a five year
high for both;
Similarly, the total outstanding balance for loans funded
by auto finance companies is
$442.5 billion, a five-year high,
while the total number of existing
loans is more than 32 million, a
59-month high;
Serious delinquencies on
auto loans funded by finance
companies in December 2013
represent 1.88% of outstanding
balances, a year-over-year
decrease of 13.5%;
In that same time, serious
delinquencies on auto loans
funded by banks or other
depositories are 0.41% of outstanding balances, identical to
December 2012.

Meet NextGear Capital – Your Next
Inventory Financing Partner
In February 2013, NextGear Capital
was unveiled as the new name for an
inventory finance company created
through the merger of industry leaders
Manheim Automotive Financial Services (MAFS) and Dealer Services Corporation (DSC).
More than a year later, a lot has changed
for the Carmel, Ind.-headquartered
company, but the core values still remain the same.
“We continuously strive to provide
our customers with the latest technology and best customer service,”
said NextGear Capital President Brian Geitner, who was the former president of DSC. “When we merged with
MAFS it provided us the opportunity
to bring two customer-focused companies together under a new technology platform with a consistent business model.”
NextGear Capital offers its dealers
flexible lines of credit for their inventory purchases, including Retail,
Wholesale, Salvage or Diversified
Products (Recreational Vehicles,
Trailers, Marine, Powersports (Used),
Heavy Trucks (Used), Auto – Salvage
and Auto – Daily Rental). The company also partners with auctions to
provide fast and reliable funding for
auction purchases.
36 | GIADA Independent Auto Dealer Jan/Feb 2014
However, what separates NextGear
Capital from the competition is its
technology solutions, which it provides to more than 17,000 dealers
and more than 1,000 auctions across
North America.
NextGear Capital’s secure
shipping hub handles
more than 1.6 million
transactions annually and
its records vault has the
capacity to hold more than
1 million documents while
protecting them from fire,
theft and misfiling.
“I always say that we are a tech company that loans money,” said Geitner.
“We made the decision from the very
beginning to be tech-oriented because we could foresee that was the
direction the industry was heading.
Over the years, we have continually gone to our customers and asked
‘What is important to you?’ What we
have found is that there has been an
increased demand for faster, better
technology.”
One way NextGear Capital has
stepped up in this area is through
the launch of its new mobile app and
online account management solution
in 2013. These applications provide
a simplified experience to improve
dealer interaction, storing all important information for them in one
convenient location. According to
Geitner, this is just another step towards the company’s goal of merging
tomorrow’s technology today.
Ten years ago, the thought of conducting business on one’s phone seemed
far-fetched. Not so much anymore.
According to NextGear Capital, approximately 30 percent of their customers routinely use the NextGear
Capital mobile app to manage their
accounts.
“In today’s high-tech world, it is our
belief that inventory financing has to
not only help a dealer acquire more
inventory but also has to be able to
provide them with data,” said Geitner. “If you are going to finance the
inventory, you should be in a place
where you can help the dealer make
the best decision possible on that
soon to-be collateral.”
Another unique characteristic of the
company is its on-site records and title management. NextGear Capital’s
secure shipping hub handles more

than 1.6 million transactions annually and
its records vault has the capacity to hold
more than 1 million documents while protecting them from fire, theft and misfiling.
According to Geitner, NextGear Capital’s success can be attributed to the
company’s entrepreneurial leadership.
“Our executive team has always maintained a start-up like mindset when it
comes to exploring new ideas,” said
Geitner. “That spirit of entrepreneurialism has allowed us to stay on top in
38 | GIADA Independent Auto Dealer Jan/Feb 2014
technology because it is recognition
that in order to compete for tomorrow,
we have to prepare for it today.”
NextGear Capital has celebrated some
big milestones in the last year. Along
with the launch of its new mobile app,
the company announced plans to expand its reach into Canada and UK.
Additionally, NextGear Capital expanded its corporate campus in Carmel, adding a second building to bring its
total square footage of office space to
more than 80,000 feet.
For NextGear Capital, the biggest challenge is staying ahead of ever changing
trends so as to not get caught. Dealers
are looking for a consistent partner in
terms of their financing needs, and the
company spends a great deal of time going through the setup process explaining what they can expect from NextGear
Capital, the services the company has to
offer them and how NextGear Capital
tailors their relationships to meet their
dealers’ needs.
Centurion
Automotive
Products named
Marketing Group
for the NIADACPO for Georgia
Based out of Syracuse, NY, with offices
in Atlanta, GA, Centurion Automotive Products, Inc. has been named the
official marketing group for the NIADA-Certified Program for Georgia.
Mark Fiorini, President of Centurion
Automotive Products, has been serving
the needs of auto dealers since 1980.
The Centurion team has over 200 years
of combined auto business experience
and value over 400 auto dealer relationships. This is a main reason Warrantech has appointed Centurion to be
the marketing arm of Georgia and the
NIADA-Certified Program.
Looking ahead to 2014, NextGear Capital sees a market very much in favor of
the dealer and consumer today. Market
corrections will likely begin in 2014 and
into 2015 if not sooner. Lease inventory
is entering the space, which in turn is
putting downward pressure on the vehicle values. Some analysts see an 18 percent growth in lease volume next year,
which creates a cycle in which the dealer
has an abundance of inventory, giving
the consumer more choices.
Centurion Automotive is also a full
line consulting firm with a very diverse
portfolio of products and services to offer
your dealership. Services include extended service contracts, complete startup
reinsurance companies, Ancillary Products, such as GAP, tire and wheel, theft,
chemical products, and full array line of
training programs to include F&I, sales,
BDC, and complete dealer development
programs to help your dealership maximize sales and profits.
“We’re very excited about a variety of
offerings in 2014,” said Geitner. “We
have several key initiatives surrounding our partnerships with a variety of
retail finance companies, which will
allow our customer to leverage their
floor plan relationship and the use of
data, products and services – all to
make doing business faster, easier and
more profitable.” n
President Mark Fiorini named Danny Delich the Area Representative for
Georgia. With over 25 years in dealer
services, Danny has the know-how to
provide solutions to all your dealership needs whether they are finance
products, training solutions, or general
dealer development information. Contact Danny at (913)403-6042 or
