Warranty Labor Rates
Before retail rate laws, a dealer’s warranty labor rate was established at the “benevolence” of the manufacturer based on little more than a survey of nearby dealer’s warranty rates and a subjective ruling by a corporate bureaucrat. In an effort to placate dealers, manufacturers offered annual, automatic rate increases based on the consumer price index. While this seemed fair, the cost of doing business far outpaced these small increases and dealers again were frustrated.
Misconceptions, complex state statutes and manufacturer protocols, limited internal resources and intimidation by the factory are just a few of the challenges dealers face when considering seeking retail reimbursement.
