“The events of the past few years just scratch the surface of how important the Center for Automotive Research is to this industry. The hard evidence of its tangible, objective, third-party data was crucial to communicating the importance of the U.S. automotive industry to the economic health of the United States, and in turn, to the global economy as a whole.”

– Mark Reuss, General Motors North America

“At FCA, we sincerely appreciate the invaluable role the Center for Automotive Research plays in fortifying strong relationships among automakers, suppliers, universities and the other significant participants in the automotive community.”

– Scott Garberding, Fiat Chrysler
