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
Dear FTC, Just as a concerned citizen of the US and car buying public, I would like to thank the FTC for opening up this topic to debate. I wanted to express my opinion that I do believe the franchise and sales laws need updating. If an auto manufacturer wants to directly sell to consumers I think they should not be limited in their efforts to do so. With the advent of the internet and social media, I think the past concerns that the auto makers are too strong and could hide or crush consumer dissent/issues is a moot point today. Whatever your decision, I hope it is best for the consumer. Regards, James Casasanta
