According to Auto Remarketing, new franchise rules signed into law by North Carolina governor.
The North Carolina Automobile Dealers Association applauded Gov. Pat McCrory signing several new motor vehicle franchise law provisions into the books last week.
The signed measure — Senate Bill 717 — covers many areas of the North Carolina Motor Vehicle Dealers and Manufacturers Licensing Law, including:
- Ability of dealers to offer non-manufacturer ancillary products to consumers
- Dealership vendor choice
- Dealership staffing
- Warranty reimbursement
- Protection of dealership customer data
A segment of the signed law that goes into effect Oct. 1 states “nothing in this subdivision shall be deemed to preclude a manufacturer from establishing sales contests or promotions that provide or award dealers or consumers rebates or incentives, provided, however, that the manufacturer complies with all of the following conditions.”
