Video: NADA Creates Task Force to Address Concerns on Facility Upgrades, Stair-Step Pricing Programs

McLEAN, Va. (June 28, 2012) -- The National Automobile Dealers Association has created an Industry Relations Task Force to address “fairness” issues in response to continuing complaints from dealers about factory-mandated facility upgrades and stair-step incentive pricing programs.

“As the manufacturers put more pressure on the dealers, they are screaming that these programs are unfair,” said NADA Chairman Bill Underriner, in a recent interview on AutoFocus with David Hyatt. “It has to be fair for everybody. We want a level playing field on these issues.”

Forrest McConnell, chairman of NADA’s Industry Relations Committee, will lead the task force.

The NADA Story

The NADA story began in 1917 when 30 auto dealers traveled to the nation’s capital to convince Congress not to impose a luxury tax on the automobile. They successfully argued that the automobile is a necessity of American life, not a luxury. From that experience was born the National Automobile Dealers Association. Today, NADA represents nearly 16,000 new-car and -truck dealers, with 32,500 franchises, both domestic and international. For more information, visit
