Used car labelling will ensure dealers open up to customers which can be “no bad thing” said Russell Wythe, dealer principal of Wrights Mazda in Norwich.
The Mazda dealership has decided to opt for used car labelling for two-years-old used cars but not older ones.
Wythe said the idea was fine as long as there is a system and process in place and a man to do it at a dealership.
He is concerned about random checks where fines are imposed for not displaying the correct labelling.
“There will always be that one case where someone hasn’t put the sticker in the window,” he added.
The general view in the industry is that the scheme is a “good idea” for cars up to two years old, but the bosses of AM 100 groups say they have more pressing matters on their minds.
