Loyalty Trends

The best customer to sell is one you've sold before. Many dealerships pride themselves on retention. Keeping customers coming back is an easy way to measure the quality of the dealership experience.  But what are the actual numbers behind? Are customers staying loyal in this new shopping environment where even more of the process has gone online? Are major disruptors in the market really having an impact? When people can't find the car they want on your lot, or get schedule for service, are they waiting for you or going elsewhere?

Use this data to understand national trends in loyalty metrics and determine if changes need to be made to help your client retention.

Service retention has been trending up for years. But in 2021, with service departments struggling to keep up with demand generated by cars being on the road longer, some dealerships are losing loyal customers to competitors including big box stores.


New Car Sales Loyalty

New car sales have traditionally driven customer loyalty with nearly a quarter of new vehicle sales coming from repeat customers.  However, since 2020, this metric has been in steep decline.  What is your dealership doing to combat loyalty loss?




Used Car Sales Loyalty

There's no loyalty in used cars? Now there's even less.  Used car buyers are being picked off from every direction, by local and national competition. What are you doing to engage your past used car buyers?
