During the recent recession, thousands of dealerships struggled to make a profit and were in danger of closing their doors. Spike TV’s new unscripted original series, “Car Lot Rescue,” follows auto dealership ‘doctor’ Tom Stuker as he takes charge in bringing these once failing establishments to new heights of success.
Car dealerships are small businesses that employ more than a million Americans but, with the economic downturn, auto sales are at a 30 year low and many dealerships are on the verge of collapse. Car Lot Rescue showcases renowned dealership “doctor” Tom Stuker, who is out to save them. Stuker has logged more than 10 million air miles, visiting hundreds of car lots in desperate need of his guidance and his innovative methods for selling cars and overhauling dealerships has made him a venerable legend in the industry. In each episode, Stuker and his car savvy team attempt to turn around a new dealership in dire financial straights. His larger-than-life persona and blunt talk may rub some employees the wrong way but his tough-love approach and keen sense of business ultimately delivers unmatchable success.
