How Do Car Dealerships Make Money When a Person Buys or Goes on a Lease Contract at the Car Dealership for a New Car?”

Car dealerships are in the business of buying, selling and repairing cars. The car dealership owners and managers want to keep the business running as smoothly as possible, with an eye to increasing the profits of the dealership at every turn. Once a car is sold or put onto a lease agreement to the customers, the car dealership may only want to see that person again where the customer is getting work paid for in the shop.

For example, if a car is sold to a customer, then the car dealership wants to keep that customer for life, to have a place for the customer to get his or her car repaired when it needs routine or special servicing. At times, the car dealership may not be ready, willing or able to “deal” with a lemon car that comes back to the car dealership. That is because the car dealership will lose money making the repairs to a lemon car for free. But all repairs to a recalled or lemon car need to be for free, because that is the agreement that the shop has with the auto manufacturer, for the advantage of the customers who buy the cars.

Help, the Car Dealership Can’t Get My Lemon Car in Any Time Soon for Needed Repairs, What Do I Do Now?”

Car dealerships usually have attached repair shop facilities, that allow the car dealership to manage, handle and repair any cars that are sold at the dealership or elsewhere, when the vehicles need servicing. A car dealership shop is open to the community, and will usually take repair orders for cars of many different make and models, even cars different from the ones that they sell. Oftentimes, the car dealership mechanics are highly trained and are certified to work on a number of different types of vehicles.

When a car is a defective lemon vehicle, and it is sold by the dealership, the car dealership has a duty and responsibility to repair that vehicle for the customers. The car dealership is actually going to have to make a slot of time for the owner of a lemon car, to get the car in for the needed repairs. Unfortunately, because the customer has a lemon and defective car, the auto manufacturer usually allows the customers to get their lemon cars repaired for free at the car dealership. That means that the auto repair mechanics are “losing” money by repairing that vehicle. In some ways, they are increasing the goodwill of the shop by making the necessary repairs for free, per the order of the auto manufacturer. But the car mechanic is not actually “making” any money on that repair, because that is a car that should have been perfect when sold to the customer.

What Is the Responsibility of the Car Dealership to Repair My Lemon Car?

The car dealership signed a contract with you for your vehicle, and that means that they still have a responsibility to you to help you figure out the situation with your lemon car. This means that the car dealership needs to try to fix the car if possible, and if it can’t then it needs to help you to work with the auto manufacturer to get a buyback or a refund for your lemon car.

In general, customers who buy cars from a car dealership want to feel important, and want to know that they matter to the car dealership. No customer wants to feel that the car dealership used the person to sell a car, and then never wants to hear from that customer again.
