Industry Notes

One of the most important items in business is communication. Our Industry Notes Page is designed to provide dealers with important "need-to-know" information about vendors and products. This page is updated anytime we feel dealers need to have this vital new information. Check here weekly and find out about the things that can have an impact on your business.

Want a better way to keep up with the Industry Notes? Our Price Guide Pro software includes a summary of the notes in the "What's New" file with each new update. Learn more about Price Guide Pro.

Are you a Motor State Dealer or Vendor and know of a topic that you would like considered for our Industry Notes? Contact us or call: 800-772-2678.
