5 ways to stay clear of a factory audit
Abstract: Dealerships across the country are striving to make 2010 a far more profitable year than 2009. One area that’s easy to overlook is the possibility of a factory audit, which costs a dealership time and, hence, money. With manufacturers also looking hard to boost profits, dealers would be wise to do what they can to avoid an audit. This involves fulfilling factory expectations; getting key people involved; reviewing the appropriate records; avoiding unusual operational activity; and inspecting the service department.
