§17A-6A-1. Legislative finding.
The Legislature finds and declares that the distribution and
sale of motor vehicles in this state vitally affects the general
economy and the public welfare and that in order to promote the
public welfare and in exercise of its police power, it is necessary
to regulate motor vehicle dealers, manufacturers, distributors, and
representatives of vehicle manufacturers and distributors doing
business in this state in order to avoid undue control of the
independent new motor vehicle dealer by the vehicle manufacturer or
distributor and to insure that dealers fulfill their obligations
under their franchises and provide adequate and sufficient service
to consumers generally.
