Car Dealer Power 2012 – last chance

Time 3:29 am, May 29, 2012

TIME is running out to have your say on which car manufacturers and suppliers are the best to do business with.

Our Car Dealer Power survey – sponsored by G3 Glasscoat – closes on June 1. These awards are the only gongs voted for by those that really matter – you, the dealers – which means suppliers and manufacturers are desperate to win.

And as a thank you for taking the time to fill in our survey – which can be done in a few minutes online at – you’ll be in with your chance to win some cracking prizes (see right).

Car Dealer Power is 100 per cent confidential too. We don’t even ask for your name, only your mobile phone number and this is only used to inform winners of our prize draw that they’ve won. If you don’t want to include your number, that’s fine – it just excludes you from the prize draw.

‘We want you to rate the firms you use in all manner of areas of your business so we can celebrate the very best’

For 2012, we’re giving even more prominence to the suppliers that support dealers on a daily basis too. We’ve split a number of the categories up to give the smaller firms more of a chance of recognition in these important awards.

We want you to rate the firms you use in all manner of areas of your business so we can celebrate the very best – and invite them to our special Car Dealer Power Awards night to be held on July 17 at the top of the Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth.

Car makers take our survey very seriously and a number have implemented changes to their processes directly off the back of comments made in previous year’s surveys.

Filling in Car Dealer Power shouldn’t take longer than a few minutes. You can do it now by visiting
