automotive retailing

In connecticut

Connecticut has a rich automotive history. In fact, the state was once considered the auto capital of the world, when Pope Manufacturing of Hartford produced more than half of all motorized vehicles in the United States. Though auto manufacturing didn’t survive here, automotive retailing has thrived. Founded in 1921, The Connecticut Automotive Retailers (CAR) Association represents Connecticut’s new vehicle dealerships. Its two hundred and seventy members sell every major automobile brand and account for nearly 18% of total retail sales in our state.

In addition to their economic significance, automotive retailers play a critical role in the communities where they do business. They provide tremendous financial support to local charities. They vote and pay taxes. They provide good jobs. Their employees are your neighbors. Dealerships will continue to play a pivotal role for both our state and local economies.

Founded in 1921, The Connecticut Automotive Retailers Association represents Connecticut’s new-vehicle dealerships. Its approximately three hundred members sell every major automobile brand, and account for almost 18% of total retail sales in our state.

Franchise System

The Connecticut Franchise Laws relating to the sale and service of motor vehicles in Connecticut perform a triple purpose:

Protect Connecticut consumers by helping with warranty issues and recall work from manufacturers whereby dealerships are advocates for the consumer.

Protect and regulate local, independently owned auto dealerships

Provide State Legislators the means to keep ‘guard rails’ on a large industry within the state, promoting free trade, a level playing field, and a fair business climate.

The franchise system employs people in a variety of jobs: billing, human resources, technicians, mechanics, sales personnel, IT, marketing, and administrative help. Many of the dealers in Connecticut are family owned and have been for generations.
