New Hampshire's Broad New Protections for Auto Dealers Is Law
Concord New Hampshire June 26, 2013; The AIADA newsletter reported that auto dealers gained sweeping new legal protections yesterday when Gov. Maggie Hassan signed legislation expanding the state's existing "Dealer Bill of Rights".
The bill expands the existing protections offered under state law for locally owned franchises that sell automobiles and farm or construction equipment. Among other things, it bans manufacturers from requiring their dealerships to upgrade their facilities except every 15 years, requires automakers to pay higher reimbursement rates for repair work made under warranty, and allows dealers greater access to the files manufacturers keep on them.
Pete McNamara, president of the New Hampshire Automobile Dealers Association said, "It (the Bill) provides balance in the one-sided relationship between car dealers and car manufacturers."
