Title: Motor Vehicle Dealers Trade Regulation Rule 

On July 13, 2022, the Commission issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) soliciting public comment on a proposed Rule regarding unfair or deceptive acts or practices under its authority with respect to motor vehicle dealers described in section 1029(d) of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, Public Law No. 111-203. 87 FR 42012 (July 13, 2022). The proposed rule would prohibit motor vehicle dealers from making certain misrepresentations in the course of selling, leasing, or arranging financing for motor vehicles, require accurate pricing disclosures in dealers’ advertising and sales discussions, require dealers to obtain consumers’ express, informed consent for charges, prohibit the sale of any add-on product or service that confers no benefit to the consumer, and require dealers to keep records of advertisements and customer transactions. The public comment period closed on September 12, 2022. The staff is reviewing the public comments.
