What is the FTC CARS Rule?
The Combating Auto Retail Scams (CARS) Rule impacts dealerships in two critical ways:
Requires dealerships to follow strict new advertising and sales practices.
Gives the Federal Trade Commission first-strike capability to fine delinquent dealers. Non-compliance is considered a deceptive trade practice.

CARS compliance requirements
The CARS Rule makes it illegal to misrepresent material information such as price, financing or add-ons.
Under the CARS Rule, if the consumer won’t benefit from an add-on product or service, the dealer can’t charge for it
Requires dealers to clearly disclose the offering price – the actual price anyone can pay to get the car, excluding only required government charges.
No surprise fees or hidden charges. Dealers must get a buyer’s clear and informed “yes” to what they’re buying and how much they’re being charged
