Seven Reasons to Join Your State Independent Automobile Dealers Association
by USED CAR NEWS
6) CONSUMER ADVOCACY
7) COMMUNITY SERVICE
Unless you can answer “YES” to ALL of the questions below, you cannot afford NOT to Join the OIADA today !
Can you qualify for and afford a $500,000 Dealer Bond? There has been proposed legislation in the past to do so.
Can you afford to offer a warranty (NOT Service Contract) on EVERY unit you sell? There was proposed legislation to do away with ALL “As Is” sales.
Do you want to be obligated to provide EVERY buyer with 7 to 14 days to change their mind and return your vehicle, NO STRINGS ATTACHED? Again, there was proposed legislation to do so.
Do you want the Federal government to subsidize NEW Vehicle sales by providing a guaranteed trade in value on ALL units 2001 and older AND to require these vehicles to be crushed once they have been traded in? Ask about the “Cash for Clunkers” bill that was circulated.
Based upon ONLY the 4 items above, can you afford NOT to spend $295 yearly dues for being a OIADA member?
IF you were given incentives every year that exceeded your yearly dues, WHY WOULDN’T YOU JOIN TODAY?
Whether you realize it or not, your livelihood has been greatly affected by the actions of your state independent dealer associations. Today’s legislative climate is far scarier that ever before. The above legislation could put up to 80% of All used Motor Vehicle Dealers out of business. It’s your choice. Please submit your application above.
Our mission is your success. We need your support.

Oklahoma IADA Legislative and Dealer Support Activities
Member dues support a legislative liaison who monitors all pieces of state legislation potentially impacting the industry. In 2016 alone, over 4,000 pieces of legislation were submitted. In any given year, the OIADA liaison and staff actively monitor approximately 30 pieces of legislation. Member dues also support staff representation before the Used Motor Vehicle & Parts Commission. Specific actions by OIADA in recent years include:

•Against significant opposition from the wrecker industry, sponsored and succeeded in passing extensive Title 42 reform.
•Worked with sponsors of criminal staling legislation to exempt dealers' legitimate use of GPS devices from the proposed definition of "following" as it related to stalking. the bill was ultimately defeated.
•Stopped legislation requiring used dealer to provide extensive disclosure of previous vehicle frame and /or body damage and subjected them to severe penalties (including being deemed guilty of fraud and requiring refund of all monies) for failure to do so.
•Stopped efforts that would have caused dealers to pay approximately $10 for temporary tags.
