Franchised new vehicle dealerships carry a brand and an image that creates expectations among buyers. New vehicles are a large, complex purchase for customers. Franchised new vehicle dealers work to provide competitive pricing and financing along with the best quality customer service while meeting the requirements of a complex, highly-regulated transaction. AFIP certification is the cornerstone to the dealer’s compliance program.

AFIP’s Franchised New Vehicle certification program has been designed to insure that F& I managers and other personnel working in Franchised New Vehicle sales are trained to meet the highest ethical and compliance standards when selling Franchised New Vehicles. It’s another building block of the successful dealership that creates trust and lifelong customers.
