NADA Reports Drop in Dealership Body Shops

NADA Industry Analysis estimates that 33 percent, or roughly 6,100, of new-vehicle dealerships had body shops in 2010, down from 2009.

In its annual state of the industry report, the National Automotive Dealers Association (NADA) noted that the number of new car dealerships with on-site body shops is declining. NADA Industry Analysis estimates that 33 percent, or roughly 6,100, of new-vehicle dealerships had body shops in 2010, down from 2009.

Auto body work performed by all new-vehicle dealerships remained at just over $6.4 billion in 2010, down from about $6.6 billion in 2009, NADA also noted.

As the number of dealership body shops has decreased in recent years, so have the number of new car dealerships. In 2007, the dealer population was 21,200; between 2009 and 2010, the population dipped from 20,010 dealerships to 18,460. During that same time, the number of dealership body shops declined from 7,200 (36 percent of total dealer population in 2009) to 6,100 (33 percent of dealership population in 2010).
