RE-ENGINEERING RECALL

As recall volumes continue at over 50 million affected vehicles per year and news of global recalls dominate the headlines, the industry continues to wonder what the future will hold. In an environment of change and upheaval, how do we know what the right path is? SAA members and guests learned more about the latest data, trends and observations on automotive recalls during the 4th Annual Automotive Warranty & Recall Symposium on March 28. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE CHINESE ARE HERE!

“The Chinese are coming!” This is not a new headline in the automotive industry. But this time, the Chinese aren’t coming; they are here and making an impact. On Feb. 1, SAA members and guests had the rare opportunity to hear directly from two Chinese automakers and China auto expert Michael Dunne on how Chinese automakers and suppliers are not only disrupting the U.S auto market but how their strategies are unique, accelerated and in a totally different way from the Japanese and Korean low-price approach.

Michael Dunne's presentation is located in the members section.

 

 

AUTOMOTIVE OUTLOOK CONFERENCE

SAA’s 30th Annual Automotive Outlook Conference kicked off 2017 with a three-hour deep dive into key trends for the upcoming year.  The event featured three panels with industry experts, including the Chief Financial Officer of the new Karma Automotive and the Chief Technology Officer of Denso.
