Driving a better deal for auto dealers - Media Release

DRIVING A BETTER DEAL FOR AUTO DEALERS

A Shorten Labor Government will drive a better deal for auto dealers by levelling the playing field between the overseas multinationals that manufacture cars and the small businesses that operate car dealerships.
 
Labor will implement an industry-specific code through regulations under the Competition and Consumer Act to deliver clear rules for manufacturers and dealerships.

The current power imbalance means manufacturers can impose contract terms and set dealership expectations which are to their own advantage, making it difficult for local dealers to properly look after their customers.
 
The pressure this creates on dealers impacts on small business and can affect how cars are serviced and repaired, and how warranty claims are handled.
 
The independent code will create a set of rules that both the manufacturers and dealers must observe when establishing expectations around dealer conduct.
 
Labor has a clear plan to clear the road for auto dealers and drive a better deal for every Australian.
