Will GM / Chrysler dealership closures affect your business or fleet?

    This is not a question about the political aspect of the GM or Chrysler dealership closures.

    Just a question about whether or not the closure or loss of dealerships in some areas or towns will affect your fleet, maintenance, or how you do business. Guess this could be a business question - but oh well. Figured that the lawn folks had potentially bigger fleets, and possibly more feedback.

    Do the closures affect your fleet or lawn business?

    In my case, unless is has a teeny effect of the local economy and prices, I see little or no impact to us. The dealership I bought from is remaining - about 5 miles away.

    The only possible change, is whether I buy another Chevrolet truck in a few years.

    It might but not in ways I can foresee, like maybe indirectly.
