California dealerships dominate the latest Ward's Dealer Business annual ranking of America's top vehicle dealerships. Total revenue figures in the survey reached $US62.4 billion in 2001, up from $60.5 billion in 2000. The findings from the 2001 rankings indicate that, after four years of impressive growth by the nation's leading dealers in which total revenue grew at an average of $10 million a year per dealership, the major players in the industry are currently experiencing the impact of last year's poor economic conditions.
