Consumer Advocates Expand Case Against FTC

Consumer Advocates Expand Case Against FTC Featured

U.S. PIRG, along with Consumers for Auto Reliability and Safety (CARS) and the Center for Auto Safety, is challenging in court recent actions by the Federal Trade Commission. The issue is the FTC’s decision to allow dealers to advertise used cars as “safe,” “repaired for safety issues,” or “subject to a rigorous inspection,” even if those used cars are subject to safety recalls. The groups claim that doing so is unfair or a deceptive act or practice. Recently, the groups filed a second petition for review in the federal appeals court and an amended complaint in the federal trial court. They did this to include within its pending challenge the FTC’s decision to allow CarMax Inc., Asbury Automotive Group, Inc., and West-Herr Automotive Group, Inc. to engage in similar conduct.
