Nissan announcement

Further Information on the Non-Renewal of the Col Crawford Nissan Dealer Agreement

As of 31st August Col Crawford ceased to be a Nissan Dealer. After 47 years of representing Nissan (originally known as Datsun), Nissan Motor Company Australia has chosen not to renew our Dealer Agreement. This decision by Nissan has not been performance based. Such as a Manufacturer (Franchisor) can design and have in place in a Dealer Agreement with the current Australian legislation and franchising codes, non-renewal, and in our case the franchisor has simply made the decision not to renew the franchisee’s (Col Crawford’s) term as a Dealer.
