Thanks for placing video on this page. Great and valid information. It opens our eyes and ears to what we need to ask and inquire before purchasing a car. Thanks FTC.

THANKS FOR INFO.

If dealer use non-approved part / material on CPO which could void manufacture warranty (states in original car manual) without informing / disclosing to customer, is it approved by DMV or FTC contract rules?

If the car won’t work, you might have a lemon-law claim under state law. Some states provide hearings where people can  present their claims. You could contact state Attorney General’s office to make a complaint and ask about lemon laws in your state.

If you want to talk to a lawyer about this, you could use this state-by-state list from the American Bar Association or visit this site from the State Bar Associations to find someone in your area.

Very Good info....very much needed in this "crooked" society...thanks.

Auto service contracts are just like insurance for a specified amount of time and its usually paid up front or financed, so you would think if the consumer cancels it prior to the coverage expiring, that he/she would be entitled to a refund. Im wondering if the FTC has deemed all service contracts cancelable and refundable?? If not, what states have adopted this policy?
