FTC to Host Public Workshop Examining the U.S. Auto Distribution System Workshop Will Explore Competition, State Regulations, and Emerging Trends in the Industry, Project No. P131202
The, now, archaic system of dealership provided automobiles restricts the consumers opportunity to purchase all available automobiles in a convenient manner throughout the United States. A car readily available for California residents with convenient purchasing, delivery and support/maintenance is not comparatively available in all states. A number of state governments restrict the consumers' rights that are permitted in other states. The unequal treatment of Americans in the purchase, delivery and support of an automobile should not be permitted in the hands of a state legislative body. Additionally, why should such restrictive states require the owner of a new vehicle purchased on the Internet pay state sales tax simply because the owner live in the state; and, then restrict the support of the internet purchased automobile. I hope the FTC will apply pressure in changing this archaic automobile system and expand consumer rights across our country. Thank you for your efforts on the behalf of all Americans.
