Dealers that are having their franchises revoked are getting special attention from Toyota, according to an inside source. Toyota personnel are traveling the country and recruiting former Chrylser and soon-to-be-former GM dealerships, offering them the opportunity to switch franchises. They will not be reimbursed for the cars and parts they have, which are to be sold to other dealerships or the public, but may get special deals and financing for carrying the Toyota brand. Other automakers are also likely to take advantage of the opportunity to spread their brands.
While many areas may have had more Chrysler than they could support, given the company’s current sales, they were not within close range of the world’s largest automaker, Toyota, which has far fewer dealerships in the U.S. than Chrysler did.
