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
These comments are in response to the FTC's Public Workshop Examining the Auto Distribution System which was held on January 19, 2016. Buying a vehicle from a dealership is an extremely stressful and unpleasant experience for consumers these days. Everyday car buyers get burned in the sales process and end up with surprise fees and prices. Recent studies show that 75% of car shoppers would prefer to complete their entire vehicle purchase online, just to avoid interacting with salespeople at a dealership.
