With a retail workforce topping 1 million and the industry poised for growth, dealerships need to focus on hiring and retaining talented employees. The NADA Dealership Workforce Study (DWS) provides one-of-a-kind analysis of dealership pay plans and benefit packages, retention and turnover, employee benefits, work schedules and demographics. It is based on actual payroll data and questionnaire responses submitted by NADA and ATD members. The 2017 Study closes promptly on April 28, 2017.

On November 10, 2016 the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) announced their final changes to the Used Car Rule. Those changes affected the Federal the Federal Buyer’s Guide and dealer disclosure requirements for used vehicle transactions. It has come to the attention of WATDA that some Wisconsin dealers are being told by some vendors that they need to purchase the new forms. However, the CHANGES TO THE FEDERAL BUYER’S GUIDE DO NOT AFFECT THE WISCONSIN BUYER'S GUIDE.

The state of Wisconsin has a federal waiver regarding the use of the federal Buyer’s Guide. The FTC had determined that the Wisconsin Buyer’s Guide provides as much, if not more (defiantly more) consumer protections than the federal standards. That being said, if you are interested in the changes to the federal Used Car Rule, see the link below.

If you have any questions on these changes, please call WATDA at (608) 251-5577.

Despite pushback politicians may give the CFPB, dealers should continue to amp up compliance. Regulations may change, but customers don’t. Whether the CFPB is looking or not, dealers should prioritize a transparent and fair F&I process.
