News about the FTC's new dealership rules has traveled fast and far. We will touch on the details to be sure we are all up to date and invite you to be heard.
The FTC has proposed new rules that target abusive practices like junk fees and bait-and-switch advertising.
A request to extend the period for public comments past Sept 12, 2022, has been rejected.
As it stands, the new rules will result in a lower quality customer experience and higher prices for new and used vehicles.
Efforts to represent the majority of dealers (who are honest and, let’s remember, ALSO hate abusive techniques) in the conversation have been met with some pretty ugly ridicule.
Comments are still open until the 12th, and ASOTU is working to be sure the retail automotive community's voice is heard. Leave your comment now.
