How Much Profit Do Car Dealerships Make

The profit margin of car dealerships varies depending on factors such as the type of cars sold, location, and overall performance. On average, a dealership can make around 2-3% profit on a new car sale and 25-30% on used cars. Service and parts sales contribute significantly to a dealership’s overall profit. However, other expenses such as salaries, rent, and marketing costs can reduce dealership profitability.
