I’m thinking about purchasing a used vehicle, what consumer protections are offered to me?
Federal law mainly deals with used vehicles. A dealership is required to post what is called a buyers guide, included in that buyers guide will be information pertaining to the financing of the contract, whether a vehicle is purchased as-is. As-is basically means you are buying what you get, whether it has the warranty with it, information such along those lines. It’s important, also they should post that the customer should have the ability to have the car inspected prior to purchasing your vehicle as well, having gone through all of that, that should be posted on the vehicle itself.
