Buying, Selling, or Leasing a Vehicle

Buying a New Car

What information should an automobile ad include?

This is an area largely regulated by statute, and it varies from state to state. In some places, the ad must state the number available of that type of vehicle. Other items that may be required include price, dealer and factory-installed options and warranty terms. In addition, if the vehicle is "on sale," the ad should state the date the sale ends.
