NIADA Partners With Fort Worth Dealerships To Offer CPO Vehicles

By: Jeff Hatch

November 14, 2018

RB Sales & Leasing and 6th Gear Auto, both of Fort Worth, Texas, are now proud members of the NIADA Certified Family. To celebrate, NIADA held kickoff launches at both dealerships.

“It’s important to us to be here,” said Mike Sims, business development manager for program administrator Warrantech. “Not only to us as a whole, but to these dealerships as a client, as a partner of ours with TIADA and NIADA, and everything we do.”

Scott Lilja, NIADA’s senior vice president of member services, was also on hand to offer support and explain the benefits of partnering with NIADA. “We’ve been around for 73 years protecting dealers’ interests, putting together programs to help them get to that next level in terms of differentiation and quality, and trust and transparency with consumers. And that’s what the NIADA CPO program is really about.” 

The NIADA Certified Pre-Owned Program offers high‐quality used vehicles backed by a powerful warranty with nationwide reach and by NIADA – a national association whose more than 15,000 members are dedicated to integrity and subscribe to a strict Code of Ethics.

For a vehicle to be considered “NIADA Certified,” it must undergo a 125-point inspection conducted by a licensed repair facility and be backed by a rigorous vehicle history report. Once all requirements have been met, dealers are then able to offer these vehicles to their customers along with a number of features and benefits:

  • A CARFAX vehicle history report
  • Special financing for qualified customers
  • Flexible, fully customizable warranty options
  • Roadside assistance, towing, vehicle rental and lost key/lockout service

Offering these benefits is already paying big dividends for both dealerships. “My turnover is in the 40s now and that’s what I’m really proud of,” said Chris Johnson, owner of 6th Gear Auto Sales. “We’re selling cars faster, but more importantly, our systems, our procedures and our policies through Warrantech have helped us sell more cars through our training processes.” 

“It adds value to what we’re doing here,” said Shane Collins, general manager for RLB Sales & Leasing. “It adds value to every vehicle we sell. We’ve already seen the uptick – we’re pacing 60 cars this month, last month we did 30 – so we’re excited. It’s going to be a long, happy journey.”

Tips To Avoid Issues With Your Vehicle Service Contract

By: Jeff Hatch

September 25, 2018

A vehicle service contract (VSC) is a smart choice for customers interested in protecting themselves from the high costs of vehicle repair. You just need to make sure you know what you’re getting and what to expect in the event that the unexpected happens. Prior to purchasing or filing a claim, here are a few things to consider to ensure that there are no surprises down the road.

  • Make Sure You Aren’t Currently Under Warranty – Check to see whether the coverage of your service contract overlaps with a manufacturer’s warranty. A vehicle service contract might not be right for you if you are already covered. However, if your warranty is about to expire or you are looking for supplemental coverage then purchasing a VSC makes a lot of sense.  

  • Know What Your Vehicle Service Contract Covers – Not all vehicle service contracts cover all repairs. Take time to read the inclusions and exclusions to be sure that you’re getting the coverage you want and know when coverage might be denied. For instance, if a contract states that only mechanical breakdowns will be covered, problems caused by normal wear and tear might be excluded.

  • Be Aware Of The Length Of Your Coverage – It happens to the best of us. You think you’re covered, only to find out that your plan has already expired. Make sure your coverage is up to date. And if the service contract lasts longer than you expect to own the car, find out if it can be transferred when you sell the vehicle.

  • Perform Regularly Scheduled Maintenance – Under the contract, you may have to follow all recommendations for routine maintenance, such as oil and spark plug changes. Failure to do so could void the contract. Find out if the contract prohibits you from performing routine maintenance yourself or from taking the car to an independent dealer for work. Also, be aware that unapproved modifications or installing wrong parts could void your service contract as well.

  • Keep All Service Records And Receipts – Create a file to keep track of all the repairs that were performed on your vehicle and be sure to include all receipts. This will come in handy if you ever have to put your vehicle service contract to use. Your claim could be denied if you are unable to show that the vehicle was properly maintained.
