Governor Urged to Sign Car Buyers' Bill
Governor Schwarzenegger is being urged to sign a bill dubbed "The Car Buyers' Bill of Rights."
Tuesday, September 21, 2004
The original bill, introduced earlier this year, would have allowed used car buyers three days to return their vehicle for a refund, but that provision was amended out. Consumer advocate Rosemary Shahan says the bill sent to the governor would set minimum standards for what constitutes a “certified” used car. CUT: Shahan07 :07 But Brian Moss with the California Auto Dealers Association says the bill is poorly written, giving the buyer too much say. CUT: BrianMoss08 :08 The bill also limits dealer markup charges and requires the seller to disclose credit information obtained about the buyer. The governor has until September thirtieth to sign or veto the bill. SOC
