Int 1539-2017 ARafael L. Espinal, Jr. Amended and Coupled on GOSale and financing of used automobiles by second-hand automobile dealers.IntroductionThis bill strengthens consumer protections against predatory lending practices that exist in the used car industry. It will mandate that used car dealers disclose certain information to consumers, including: i) the itemized prices of add-on products; ii) the total cost of the vehicle, broken down by monthly payments and with or without any add-ons; iii) the lowest interest rate (APR) offered to the consumer by a finance company; and iv) any other financing-related disclosures the Commissioner prescribes by rule. Any required documents or disclosures to be provided to a consumer must be in the language used to negotiate the contract for sale. In addition, this bill requires dealers to offer an “automobile contract cancellation option” that would allow a buyer to cancel a contract for sale, subject to some limitations, within two days of purchasing the used vehicle. During the cancellation period, the purchased used car remains on the dealer’s lot until the consumer makes a decision. A dealer is required to retain certain records related to the sale of used cars for six years, which may be subject to audit by the department of consumer affairs. The bill also gives the Commissioner of the Department of Consumer Affairs the discretion to report to the City Council and the Mayor on the effectiveness of the bill. Finally, this bill creates additional civil penalties for the violation of its provisions.Approved by CouncilPass Action details Not available
Int 1540-2017 ADaniel R. Garodnick Amended and Coupled on GORequiring second-hand automobile dealers to post and distribute a bill of rights to consumers.IntroductionThis bill would require secondhand automobile dealers to conspicuously post and provide consumers with a bill of rights.

For each executed contract, the secondhand automobile dealer must obtain from the consumer an initialed or signed copy of the consumer bill of rights and retain it for six years.

Doing so would enhance agency and vendor relations and promote payment efficiency by reducing the printing burdens on vendors that generate large numbers of procurement vouchers for services.
