The National Automobile Dealers Association wants General Motors to keep language in the franchise agreement GM is developing that would protect dealers if the company eliminates a brand.
GM revises its franchise agreement with all dealers every five years. It deleted from a draft of the 2005 agreement a clause that says GM seeks to allow "each dealer the opportunity to achieve a reasonable return on investment."
Sources say NADA wrote to GM late last month to ask for restoration of that language.
GM spokesman Dee Allen would not say whether GM would consider NADA's request.
