Subaru dealers get financial aid to boost fixed-operations capacity, from Automotive News.
Subaru dealers were given preliminary details of the brand’s new program to increase fixed-operations capacity at its U.S. dealerships.
Called Fixed Operations Expansion, or FOX, Subaru wants to increase its service capacity by 70 percent in four years. Each dealer will receive a report with recommendations based on projected future growth by Subaru.
Dealers will get financial support from Subaru based on how much they spend for the service upgrades, said Phil Porter, chairman of the Subaru National Dealer Advisory Board and owner of Subaru stores in Connecticut and Florida.
“It is a fabulous deal and it is very fair. If someone came and offered you this kind of assistance and you didn’t take it, you would be crazy,” Porter said at the NADA convention here on Sunday.
He declined to provide details.
