Highlights of NYSADA’s Summer Board Meeting

NYSADA held it’s annual Summer Meeting on June 28th and 29th at The Garden City

Hotel in Garden City NY. The summer meeting is one of three occasions during the year when the Association’s entire Board gathers to discuss current conditions and form future objectives. NYSADA Chairman Bruce Bendell gave his report. He explained that NYSADA had sent two letters to Hyundai voicing our concerns regarding the Dealer Performance Bonus program and the Hyundai Shopper Assurance program, which requires that a dealer guarantee to buy-back a new vehicle from a customer up to three days after it has been delivered. President Vancavage said that Hyundai has not responded to NYSADA about these two important issues and that other state associations such as New Jersey had not received a response on these matters either. Ed Richardson mentioned that the Association had asked the DMV to look at Hyundai’s three day guaranteed buy-back program of new vehicles. The DMV will not issue a legal opinion on this program, so NYSADA is going to request a procedural letter explaining the DMV’s position that once a new vehicle is driven over the curb that sale cannot be cancelled and that vehicle would now be considered used. It was noted the buy-back program may have  been changed to an exchange for another new vehicle, which would still leave the exchanged  vehicle as used. The program also requires remote test drives, which could threaten the safety of sales people.
