Sue Robinson’s Welcome NoteBack

SueRobinson2Dear Colleague

This week, the NFDA commented on research undertaken by the Citizens Advice Bureau where they found that the majority of consumers to do not check if a car has outstanding finance. We were concerned with the research and highlighted that the most secure way of buying a used is from an NFDA member. More commentary can be found below.

For those members who have dealership in Northern Ireland, this week’s news contains a detailed update from the DVLA regarding a number of changes in Northern Ireland, including how you can check if a vehicle is taxed, assignment of registration numbers and changes to the AFRL system. If you have any queries on any of these issues please contact stephenlatham@rmif.co.uk

The NFDA held its regional meeting in Belfast this week. Members discussed a number of key issues including consumer credit and the FCA, general market conditions, the Consumer Rights Bill and dealer/manufacturer relations. We were please to have Edwin Cairns from Northern Ireland Trading standards who contributed greatly to the meeting.

Finally, we will be launching the NFDA Used Car Standards this weekend ahead of the Trading Standards Conference being held next week. I would like to thank all members for taking the time to complete their declarations and for supporting this initiative. This will be a great opportunity to promote franchised dealers to consumers as the place to go to purchase a used car and for all their servicing and repair work needs.

Sue Robinson, Director
