Used Car Managers are among the unsung heroes of the automotive retail industry. A good used car manager can turn a nonprofitable dealership into a money maker, while a bad used car manager can easily take a profitable situation and destroy it.
The Used Car Industry has always been an extremely challenging and competitive industry. However, since the economic and credit crisis of 2008, the industry has become even more complex and difficult, making the job of the used car manager more demanding than ever before.
Today’s successful used car manager must be fluent in: purchasing used cars, reconditioning those vehicles, selling used cars, financing used cars, and training other individuals to also successfully complete these tasks. Given the breadth of the abilities needed to be a successful used car manager, is there any wonder why so many used car managers underperform and so many used car departments lose money?
