Federal Trade Commission Amends Used Car Rule

by Roy, Christopher


Effective January 27, 2017, the Federal Trade Commission has amended its Used Car Rule, 16 CFR Part 455. Here is the text of the Federal Register Notice, which states that "[t]he Used Car Rule requires dealers to display on used cars offered for sale a window sticker called a ‘Buyers Guide’ containing warranty and other information." For further research, some of our libraries own the National Consumer Law Center's (NCLC) book on Consumer Warranty Law. Also, the NCLC has an explanatory page on the amended Used Car Rule.

Connecticut's Used Automobile Warranty law is found in Chapter 743f of the Connecticut statutes. Further, the Connecticut DMV has a web page titled Used Car Warranty that links to Chapter 743f and a "Dealers and Repairers Complaint Form."
