For more than a century, the CATA has stood for high principles of business.

Its basic tenets remain as steadfast today as they were a hundred years ago:

  • Promoting honesty and dependability in business operations; 
  • Employing truth and accuracy in dealer advertising; 
  • Standing by guarantees; 
  • Improving business methods and ethics and keeping competition fair so that dealers and the public are well-served; and
  • Refraining from practices detrimental to the industry or contrary to the public interest. 

Currently, CATA dealerships employ more than 20,000 people in Chicagoland. Over the past century, these locally based small businesses have provided good paying jobs for their employees, who, in turn, contribute to their communities.

The CATA’s commitment to excellence in automotive retailing remains its core value and will remain so through the next century.
