The article focuses on the dispute over the addition of a Volkswagen (VW) dealership in Montclair, California. The California New Motor Vehicle Board administrative law judge Marybelle D. Archibald upholds the establishment of the store. VW owners in Ontario claims that the proposed site for the store violates a state franchise law. The auto maker emphasizes that by not opening the new dealership, it misses the chance to sell more vehicles.
