Driving the Auto Industry Towards a Brighter Future
Originally chartered in 1929, we at Central Florida Auto Dealers Association (CFADA) are one of the largest not-for-profit automotive trade associations located in Central Florida. Comprised of new car dealer franchisers and other automotive industry partners, we foster long-term economic wellbeing through our cooperative efforts within the automotive industry.
Dedicated to our members and our community, we’re consistently monitoring industry trends, pursuing equitable partnerships, and seeking innovative avenues for growth. Our economic impact over the past 89 years is proof of our dedication. Together with dealers across the nation, our industry of over 9,600 international nameplate dealership franchises created almost 600,000 American jobs with payrolls of $32 billion annually in 2016 alone. Together, our dealers put or replaced a total of 8.4 million vehicles on the road— that’s a 59% share of the U.S. market!

“As Governor, I want to thank the Central Florida Auto Dealers Association for all you are doing to create opportunities for Florida families. We recently announced that Florida’s unemployment rate has reached a more than 10-year low of 3.6 percent and that more than 127,000 private-sector jobs were created in October. The creation of more than 1.44 million private-sector jobs since December 2010, shows the strength of our economy… (Your ideas) help us continue creating an environment that encourages business growth…(and) achieve our goal of making Florida first in the nation for job creation.”
