Webinar Summary

Open the year with a look at what's ahead: What should F&I managers prepare for — and what should they prepare against?

In 2013, the F&I world saw a number of changes.

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau's indirect influence on automotive retailers became far more pronounced. Leasing grew dramatically, particularly for mass-market brands that heretofore had not seen much leasing penetration. Loans became longer. And with new-car margins shrinking, dealers began to rely increasingly on their F&I departments for profits — and therefore set higher targets for their F&I managers.

Our panel of experts will peer into their crystal balls to determine the outlook for:

The CFPB; Interest rates; Lenders' appetite for subprime auto loans; Leasing; Factory incentives; Used-car values, and by extension, the trade-in prices that help buyers make their down payment; and Vehicle affordability in light of all of the above.
