Resource Hub


On December 12, the Federal Trade Commission announced a final rule for Combating Auto Retail Scams (CARS).  The CARS Rule will have a profound impact on dealership advertising, sales, and financing strategies prior to its effective date of July 30, 2024.  We’ve been following the CARS Rule very closely since it was first proposed, and have developed this resource hub with everything you need to know. 

According to the FTC, “The primary purpose of the FTC’s CARS Rule is to add truth and transparency to the car buying and leasing process by making it clear that certain deceptive or unfair practices are illegal – for example, bait-and-switch tactics, hidden charges, and other conduct that harms consumers and honest dealers.”

Get all the details on the new FTC CARS Rule impacting dealership advertising, sales, and financing strategies. Learn about penalties for violating the rule, disclosure requirements, and prohibited misrepresentations.
