Protecting the FTC’s CARS Rule

March 11, 2024

March 11, 2024 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm ET

Buying a car is time-consuming, confusing, and opaque, and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has published a rule that would bring long overdue changes to the marketplace: the Combating Auto Retail Scams (CARS) Rule. Among other important things, the CARS Rule requires dealers to be honest and up-front about the price of the car and bans junk fees in auto sales.

The CARS Rule is under attack from powerful special interest groups and advocates have a powerful voice and will be a critical part of protecting this Rule in the coming months. 

Join us for this important and informative webinar about the CARS Rule, where experts from national consumer organizations will break down what the CARS Rule does (and does not do), what challenges the FTC will face, and how attendees can support the CARS Rule. 

Please note that the Zoom webinar link will be shared via email prior to the event, and the webinar will be recorded.
