Good news from the consumer protection front! California’s Car Buyer’s Bill of Rights, signed into law effective the first of this year (2007) seems to be working! It contains many rights for consumers, but some of the key ones include that dealers can no longer “certify” used cars with frame damage and must, to a greater extent, behave when trying to tack on all those expensive “extras” (gap insurance, window etchings, etc.) when selling you a car.
If you know of any departures from good dealer conduct, please let your legislators know. They’re keeping tabs on this new law and we hopefully want to let them know that it’s working well. If it’s not, then, of course, it’s time to hire our firm!
Thanks for reading.
