Important reminder on FTC used-car rule

November 18, 2010

The Federal Trade Commission’s Used-Car Rule requires dealers to affix a properly completed Buyers Guide window form to its used vehicles and to cross-reference the window form in its consumer sales contracts.


The cross-reference must read: "The information you see on the window form for this vehicle is part of this contract. Information on the window form overrides any contrary provisions in the contract of sale."


When dealers conduct a used-vehicle sale in Spanish, the window form and the cross reference to it in the sales contract must be in Spanish.


For more information, including a Spanish translation of the cross-reference, see the page on the National Automobile Dealers Association’s Web site, (NADA member login required).
