    History of the Illinois Automobile Dealers Association
     The Illinois Automobile Dealers Association is the only trade organization representing all franchised car and truck dealers in Illinois.  In 1920 a group of car dealers from around the state of Illinois joined together to accomplish what a number of widespread local associations had been unable to accomplish.

Flood Titles - Important Notice from Secretary of State
Heavy rainstorms and flooding throughout the country within the past several months have resulted in the Secretary of State’s Office implementing its flood title process.  This means that vehicles that appear on the National Insurance Crime Bureau's (NCIB) database as known flood damaged vehicles must bear a "Flood” designation on the title.  It also means that vehicles that do not appear on the NCIB database, but were registered in a location that was declared a federal or state disaster area as a result of flooding will receive a flood title designation unless accompanied by a signed and notarized natural disaster disclosure statement signed by the previous owner declaring that the vehicle was not in a natural disaster area or was not damaged.

NADA MarketBeat 
August's SAAR Tops 17.7 Million New Light Vehicles 
In August, the SAAR topped 17.7 million new cars and light trucks, which beat expectations. Light-truck sales trounced cars (57.3% to 42.7%). Year-to-date, sales of light trucks are close to NADA's predicted 56% share, with 55.3% of the market choosing light trucks over cars. This move helped push vehicle transaction prices up nearly 3% compared to last year. But the weakness in car sales has led to increased incentives, which rose more than 3% YTD, according to Autodata. Asian automakers, with weaker light-truck product lines, saw incentives rise more than North American automakers. Though there is concern about the global slowdown and roiling equities markets, NADA's forecast for 2015 remains unchanged at 17.2 million. Click here for the August edition of Market Beat.
