Dealer Strategies For Managing Used Car Inventory & Remarketing – Autoline Spotlight Episode 3

December 4th, 2017 at 3:00pm

Automakers have been very successful leasing cars to customers. Maybe too successful. Today, so many millions of cars are coming off lease every year that dealers face a big challenge in how to remarket them. CPO programs have been very valuable. So is the growing acceptance of online auctions. But has the time come for the automakers and dealers to start leasing used cars? The panel discusses various strategies that dealers could use to turn their used car inventory faster.

PANEL: John McElroy, Autoline.tv; Steve Kapusta, Ally; George Glassman, Glassman Automotive Group; Steve Finlay, WardsAuto
