Chris K Leslie and Ryan Gerardi are back for Episode #12, our final co-hosted show for 2017. In this edition we open up with a friendly debate about whether there is or is not opportunity for dealers to do more with their fixed-ops business, and if so then what exactly is the opportunity, how dealers can capitalize on that, and why. We also continue our exploration of Vehicle Subscription Models, leading off with Volvo’s “Care” program, and how the idea of this emerging trend can and will shape the future of vehicle ownership and the franchise dealer business model. On a side note we talk about why the DealerRefresh blog no longer supports comments and forces people to discuss articles in the forums.
