how do i read a vehicle identification number ( VIN ) ???

What’s a VIN?
A Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) is the 17-character identifier for your car, truck, or motorcycle. It looks like this: 1VXBR12EXCP901213, and encodes the vehicle’s manufacturer, features, and serial number. No two vehicles have the same VIN, so it serves as your car’s fingerprint– this allows for all reports of accidents, title problems, insurance incidents, and more to be tracked through each vehicle’s VIN.

Through VinAudit.com, you can look up records associated with your VIN instantly:

Enter VIN:
What’s this? Example: 1VXBR12EXCP901213

Where can I find my VIN?
You can find your vehicle’s VIN in the title document, the vehicle registration, and on the insurance policy. The VIN could also be located at the following locations on the car itself:

 

  • On the driver’s side dashboard
    (viewable through the windshield)
  • On the driver’s side door
    (on a sticker in the door jamb)

Why would I order a VIN report?
A VIN report lets you learn about your vehicle’s history. It includes checks for whether the car has been stolen, experienced accidents, recorded as salvaged, as well as many othertitle problem checks. Ordering a VIN report before purchasing a vehicle allows you to catch potential problems and purchase with confidence.

Beepi Raises $60 Million in Series B Funding to Fuel National Expansion

Peer-To-Peer Marketplace Transforming the Way People Buy and Sell Cars

Beepi, the leading peer-to-peer marketplace to seamlessly buy and sell cars online, today announced it has closed $60 million in Series B funding. In this round, Foundation Capital and SherpaVentures join existing investors Redpoint Ventures, SherpaFoundry CEO Tina Sharkey, OLX founder Fabrice Grinda, IG Expansion co-founder Jose Marin, Homeawayco-founder Brian Sharples, former Loopnet CEO Rich Boyle and Silicon Valley Bank. The new infusion of capital will allow Beepi to accelerate the growth and expansion of its platform, bringing seamless, hassle-free car buying and selling to consumers across the United States.

“Beepi is transforming the antiquated car industry. This investment will help us to continue to make significant strides to change how Americans are buying and selling cars, the most expensive purchase many people are making,” said Ale Resnik, CEO and co-founder of Beepi. “The past six months have shown us that there is a real demand to buy and sell cars 100% online and we’re excited for the next stage of growth for the company.”

This Series B funding comes on the heels of Beepi’s recent expansion into the Los Angeles market and the introduction of Beepi Prime – its exclusive, customized delivery service – in 140 U.S. cities. As part of its seamless financing experience, the company also offers prospective buyers immediate pre-approval for loans at check-out. Buyers can pay for any car in the Beepi marketplace with a bank transfer, cashier’s check, up to six different credit cards at once or even bitcoin.

“As early investors in Lending Club, we saw the power of marketplace lending to enable both sides of a financial transaction to win — for transparency and simplicity to make everyone better off. We are thrilled to back Beepi, which is reinventing another hundred year old industry with the world’s first high-trust, peer-to-peer, used car marketplace that when combined with compelling auto financing options has the potential to blow open a massive market opportunity hidden in plain sight,” said Steve Vassallo, General Partner at Foundation Capital, who will be joining Beepi’s board.

“Uber has shown that huge segments of the population are being reshaped by the on-demand economy. Much like Uber revolutionized personal transportation, Beepi is revolutionizing the way we think about buying and selling cars,” said Shervin Pishevar, Managing Director & Co-Founder of SherpaVentures and Strategic Advisor and Board Observer at Uber. “Beepi takes a wildly unpleasant experience like buying a used car and transforms it into one filled with delight, trust and ease. This investment is an opportunity to bring that joyful Beepi experience to people across the country,” stated Pishevar, who will also become a Board Observer at Beepi.

Much like Tesla and Uber, Beepi has established itself as a disruptive force in the auto industry. Currently the company receives over 1,000 requests a week to sell cars from residents in the San Francisco Bay Area alone. As it continues to recreate how people approach buying and selling cars, Beepi will continue to expand its offerings and simplify the process for buyers and sellers alike.

About Beepi

Founded by Ale Resnik, CEO, and Owen Savir, COO, Beepi is a new way to buy or sell a great car completely online. For too long, buying and selling a car has been a complex and even terrifying process — whether it be because of poor experiences at dealerships, spending too much time haggling over prices, or ending up with a vehicle that falls way below expectations. Beepi is changing that experience by giving consumers an end-to-end experience when buying or selling a car; one that’s also fast, simple, safe and fun.

Buying and Selling Vehicles.

Beepi is licensed by the California Department of Motor Vehicles as a used car dealer. As explained more fully below, once a buyer has agreed to purchase a particular vehicle offered for sale on this website, Beepi purchases that vehicle from the seller (if Beepi does not otherwise own the vehicle). Thereafter, Beepi delivers the vehicle, title and, within California, registration, to the buyer. At the time of delivery, (i) Beepi gives all required disclosures and notifications to the buyer, (ii) Beepi and the buyer mutually execute all required purchase and sale documents, and (iii) buyer pays Beepi for the vehicle.We may use a third-party payment processor (the “Payment Processor”) to bill you or compensate you through a payment account linked to your Beepi account. The processing of payments will be subject to the terms, conditions, and privacy policies of the Payment Processor in addition to this Agreement. We are not responsible for error by the Payment Processor. By choosing to consummate a transaction with Beepi, you agree to pay us, through the Payment Processor, all charges in accordance with the applicable payment terms and you authorize us, through the Payment Processor, to charge or credit your chosen payment provider.

A. Selling a Vehicle on this Website.

With certain exceptions addressed at Section 4(B) below, the vehicles listed for sale on this website are advertised and offered for sale by private sellers, and not by Beepi. To list a vehicle for sale on the Beepi website, the seller must have possession of the vehicle to be sold, and (i) the ability to transfer title, or (ii) if there is a lien on the vehicle, must have advised Beepi of the lien and must have provided Beepi with the information Beepi would need to satisfy the lien. Seller acknowledges that if he or she provides Beepi with any false, incomplete, or inaccurate information, including but not limited to vehicle or personal information, any agreement entered into between seller and Beepi for the purchase of a vehicle by Beepi is null and void and of no force of effect and seller will be responsible to compensate Beepi for any costs, losses or damages resulting from any false, incomplete, or inaccurate information.

In order to list a vehicle for sales on this website, the website will ask you, as a prospective seller, to provide basic information regarding the vehicle, including make, model, year, style and mileage. You will then be asked to schedule an inspection with a Beepi inspector, and to fill in certain identifying information, including your name and the home or office address at which the vehicle will be inspected. During the registration process, Beepi will provide you, as a prospective seller, with the the price Beepi will pay you for the vehicle if a buyer agrees to buy it (the “Guaranteed Price”).

Once you have filled in the required information and scheduled an inspection, Beepi will send one of its inspectors to your home or office to photograph the vehicle inside and out, and to conduct a pre-purchase inspection, including a test drive of the vehicle. The inspector will also verify the vehicle’s make, model, year, style and mileage, and title and registration, and confirm that the seller is the owner of the vehicle. The inspection will be conducted by the Beepi inspector in accordance with Beepi’s multipart pre-purchase vehicle inspection process.

Upon completing the inspection, if Beepi chooses to allow you to advertise and offer your vehicle for sale on Beepi.com, Beepi will, within two (2) business days, email you the Guaranteed Price. Prices are fixed and not subject to negotiation, and are based on a variety of factors, including the market value of the vehicle at the time of inspection as assessed by a third-party appraisal. Beepi will provide a prospective seller with a trade in value for the vehicle that takes into account the results of Beepi’s inspection. Beepi is paid a commission in the event a vehicle is sold. The sale price advertised on Beepi.com is the Guaranteed Price plus Beepi’s comission in the event the car is sold. Beepi’s commission is determined on a car-by-car basis, and takes into consideration the value of the car at the time of inspection. Beepi’s commission is not negotiable.

Once the vehicle passes inspection, if the private seller decides to advertise and offer his or her vehicle for sale on the website, the vehicle will be advertised and offered for sale on the website by the private seller at the Guaranteed Price plus Beepi’s commission. In offering a vehicle for sale on this website, the seller (i) represents that he or she has physical possession of the vehicle to be sold and either (a) that he or she has the ability to transfer title, or (b) that he or she has fully disclosed any lien on the vehicle to Beepi, and has provided Beepi with sufficient information to enable Beepi to satisfy the lien, and (ii) agrees that, unless or until seller advises Beepi that the vehicle has been sold, or to cancel his or her listing on the website, the vehicle is available for sale and, as long as the seller is paid the Guaranteed Price, seller will consummate the sale transaction. The seller is free to continue to use the vehicle unless or until a buyer agrees to purchase the vehicle and a sale to that buyer is consummated. The seller may also continue to list the vehicle for sale through other outlets, but it is the seller’s responsibility to inform Beepi immediately if the vehicle is sold. It is also the seller’s responsibility, to inform Beepi of any times during which the vehicle will be unavailable for pickup. For example, the seller must notify Beepi if he or she is going on vacation and will be unavailable to transfer title and possession while away.

Beepi may revise the Guaranteed Price in the event of any post-inspection damage. In such a situation, Beepi may – but is not required to – make the seller a new offer on different terms. It is the seller’s responsibility to inform Beepi immediately if any damage occurs to the vehicle after the inspection by contacting help@beepi.com. Should the seller fail to timely inform Beepi of such post-listing damage, Beepi may, at its sole discretion, remove the listing for the vehicle from this website. The seller also agrees to reimburse Beepi for any costs, losses, or damages suffered as a result, including but not limited to the cost of repair and the cost of any necessary inspection or re-inspection. The nature and extent of any post-incident damage will be determined solely by Beepi, or a third-party working on Beepi’s behalf.

If a buyer agrees to purchase a vehicle advertised and offered for sale on the website, Beepi will, as soon as reasonably practicable, (1) secure the vehicle title from the seller, (2) secure all necessary signatures from the seller to accomplish transfer of title, (3) pay the seller for the vehicle by way of a check issued by Beepi, and (4) pick up the vehicle from the seller. Beepi may remove the seller’s listing from this website if Beepi cannot secure from the seller the title, the vehicle, or the necessary signatures. Assuming the car has not suffered any post-inspection damage, the price paid by Beepi to the seller will be the Guaranteed Price. Should the buyer return the vehicle to Beepi for any reason, Beepi will retain title and possession of the vehicle and the seller shall retain the price paid to seller. To the extent such a returned vehicle is offered for sale on this website, it will be offered by sale by Beepi. Beepi may also offer for sale on this website vehicles on its premises.

Beepi cannot guarantee that any vehicle listed on the website will be sold. Nor can Beepi guarantee the length of time it will take for any car to sell. Beepi may, in its sole discretion, remove a listing from this website if the car is not sold within thirty (30) days . Alternatively, Beepi may make a new offer to the seller at a revised price point. Beepi agrees to purchase any vehicle that is not sold within thirty (30) days of it is initial posting on the website, at a price determined in Beepi’s sole discretion.

B. Buying a Vehicle on this Website.

Following registration for access and use of the Services, a prospective buyer is free to browse the website. For each vehicle offered for sale, the website displays professional photographs and certain characteristics of the vehicle. The photographs displayed are not exemplars, but photos of the actual vehicle offered for sale.

Each of the vehicles offered for sale on this website is certified by Beepi pursuant to its multistep pre-purchase certification process. For each vehicle offered for sale, the website displays a completed inspection report reciting the steps conducted in the certification process, including each of the components inspected, and the status of the vehicle with respect to each step and component.

With respect to any vehicle Beepi sells, Beepi will have complied with all requirements of the California Vehicle Code with respect to (1) checking and making operational certain vehicle parts, (2) odometer disclosure, and (3) smog inspection. Beepi will also make all disclosures required under California and federal law, including under the Federal Buyer’s Guide and California Vehicle Code section 9990. Beepi will publish on this website any third party report it has secured with respect to an individual vehicle. Beepi disclaims any responsibility for the accuracy of any such report.

The sale price at which the seller offers a vehicle for sale on this website is fixed and not subject to negotiation. The prices on the website include title and registration for California residents, the cost of delivery within a 100 mile radius of Palo Alto, California, California smog and document fees and Beepi’s commission. Prices on the website do not include sales or usage tax, delivery outside of a 100 mile radius of Palo Alto, California, non-California title and registration fees, financing charges or extra purchases, including but not limited to an extended warranty.

At the time a vehicle (along with title and, within California, registration) is delivered to the buyer for consummation of a sale, the buyer and Beepi will mutually execute a Retail Installment Contract memorializing the terms of the sale. A buyer can pay for the vehicle by check, credit card, or bank transfer. Payment is due at the time of executing the Retail Installment Contract, and the buyer’s account will be charged immediately. All vehicles delivered to a buyer will be free and clear of any liens previously attached to the vehicle. At the time of delivery, Beepi will give all required notifications and disclosures.

While Beepi expects to be able to offer delivery within several days of most purchases, there are certain circumstances outside of Beepi’s control that may delay delivery. For example, if the seller is out of town, Beepi may be unable to obtain the vehicle until the seller returns. Accordingly, Beepi cannot offer a guaranteed delivery timeframe at the time of purchase.

Each vehicle sold by Beepi comes with a 10-day money back guaranty. This means that, as long as (i) the vehicle has not been driven more than a total of 1,000 miles or 100 miles for each day the vehicle was in buyer’s possession, whichever is less (the “Mileage Limit”), and (ii) the vehicle is in the same condition it was in at the time of delivery (collectively the “Money Back Guaranty Conditions”), a buyer can, within 10 days of delivery, return the vehicle to Beepi and receive a full refund. As long as the Money Back Guaranty Conditions are satisfied, the buyer may return the vehicle for any reason. Beepi does not offer partial refunds and will not renegotiate the purchase price if the buyer is not satisfied with the vehicle. In the event the buyer is not satisfied with the vehicle for any reason, the buyer may, as long as the Money Back Guaranty Conditions are satisfied, return the vehicle within ten days of purchase and, subject to excess mileage charges described below, receive a full refund.

To the extent the vehicle has been driven beyond the Mileage Limit, the refund given to the buyer will be reduced by $3.00 (three dollars) per mile. To the extent the vehicle has been damaged or is otherwise in worse condition than it was at the time of delivery, Beepi, in its sole discretion, may refuse to refund any portion of the purchase price, or may choose to reduce the refunded amount by the amount required to return the vehicle to its condition at the time of delivery to buyer. The amount of the deduction will be determined by Beepi in its sole discretion, and Beepi will provide an accounting to the buyer reflecting the amount of any deductions and the reason for each deduction. In the event Beepi refunds the purchase price to a buyer, Beepi, as the owner of that vehicle, may itself offer the vehicle for sale on this website.

All Beepi vehicles come with the 10-day money back guaranty described above.

Dispute Resolution/Jurisdiction/Agreement to Arbitrate.

A. In General.Certain portions of this section are deemed to be a “written agreement to arbitrate” pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act. You and Beepi agree that we intend that this section satisfies the “writing” requirement of the Federal Arbitration Act.

B. First — Try to Resolve Disputes and Excluded Disputes.

If any controversy, allegation, or claim arises out of or relates to the Services, the content available through the Services, your User Submissions, or this Agreement (collectively, “Dispute”), then you and we agree to send a written notice to the other providing a reasonable description of the Dispute, along with a proposed resolution of it. Our notice to you will be sent to you based on the most recent contact information that you provide us. But if you have failed to provide us with this information or if such information is not current or accurate, then we have no obligation under this section. Your notice to us must be sent to: hello@beepi.com. For a period of 60 days from the date of receipt of notice from the other party, Beepi and you will engage in a good faith dialogue in order to attempt to resolve the Dispute, though nothing will require either you or Beepi to resolve the Dispute on terms with respect to which you and Beepi, in each party’s sole discretion, are not comfortable.

C. Forums for Alternative Dispute Resolution.

If we cannot resolve a Dispute as set forth in above within 60 days of receipt of the notice (or, where no notice address exists for you, after such Dispute arises), then either you or we may submit the Dispute to formal arbitration in accordance with this section.

Upon expiration of the applicable 60-day period and to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, a Dispute will be resolved solely by binding arbitration in accordance with the then current Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). If the Dispute has a claimed value of not more than $250,000, then the arbitration will be heard and determined by a single neutral arbitrator who is a retired judge or a lawyer with not less than 10 years’ experience as a practicing member of the bar in the substantive practice area related to the Dispute, who will administer the proceedings in accordance with the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes. If the Dispute has a claimed value of more than $250,000, or if Beepi elects in its sole discretion to bear the costs of arbitration in excess of those that would occur for a proceeding before a single neutral arbitrator, then the arbitration will be heard and determined by a three member panel, with one member to be selected by each party and the third (who will be chair of the panel) selected by the two party appointed members or by the AAA in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules. The arbitrator or arbitration panel, as the case may be, will apply applicable law and the provisions of this Agreement, will determine any Dispute according to the applicable law and facts based upon the record and no other basis, and will issue a reasoned award.

If a party properly submits the Dispute to the AAA for formal arbitration and the AAA is unwilling or unable to set a hearing date within 60 days of the filing of a “demand for arbitration,” then either party can elect to have the arbitration administered by the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services Inc. (“JAMS”) using JAMS’ streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures, or by any other arbitration administration service that you and an officer of Beepi consents to in writing. The substantive practice area requirements for the arbitrator and the $250,000 threshold for the number of arbitrators assigned to the Dispute set forth in the paragraph above for the AAA arbitration will also apply to any such arbitration under JAMS or another arbitration service.

You can obtain AAA and JAMS procedures, rules, and fee information as follows:

AAA: 800.778.7879 JAMS: 949.224.1810

D. Nature, Limitations, and Location of Alternative Dispute Resolution.

In arbitration, as with a court, the arbitrator must honor the terms of this Agreement and can award the prevailing party damages and other relief (including attorneys’ fees). However, WITH ARBITRATION (i) THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY, (ii) THE ARBITRATION PROCEEDINGS AND ARBITRATION OUTCOME ARE SUBJECT TO CERTAIN CONFIDENTIALITY RULES, AND (iii) JUDICIAL REVIEW OF THE ARBITRATION OUTCOME IS LIMITED. All parties to the arbitration will have the right, at their own expense, to be represented by an attorney or other advocate of their choosing. If an in-person arbitration hearing is required, then it will be conducted in San Mateo, California; but if the applicable arbitration rules or laws require the arbitration to be conducted in the “metropolitan statistical area” (as defined by the U.S. Census Bureau) where you are a resident at the time the Dispute is submitted to arbitration, Beepi shall have the right to elect to proceed to arbitration in such location. You and we will pay the administrative and arbitrator’s fees and other costs in accordance with the applicable arbitration rules; but if applicable arbitration rules or laws require Beepi to pay a greater portion or all of such fees and costs in order for this section to be enforceable, then Beepi will have the right to elect to pay the fees and costs and proceed to arbitration. Discovery will be permitted pursuant to the applicable arbitration rules. The arbitrator’s decision must consist of a written statement stating the disposition of each claim of the Dispute, and must provide a statement of the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and any award (if any) is based. Judgment on the arbitration decision and award (if any) may be entered in or by any court that has jurisdiction over the parties pursuant to Section 9 of the Federal Arbitration Act.

E. Limited Time to File Claims.

TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IF YOU OR WE WANT TO ASSERT A DISPUTE AGAINST THE OTHER, THEN YOU OR WE MUST COMMENCE IT (BY DELIVERY OF WRITTEN NOTICE AS SET FORTH ABOVE, WHERE FEASIBLE) WITHIN 1 YEAR AFTER THE DISPUTE ARISES — OR IT WILL BE FOREVER BARRED.

F. Injunctive Relief.

The foregoing provisions of this section will not apply to any legal action taken by Beepi to seek an injunction or other equitable relief in connection with any loss, cost, or damage (or any potential loss, cost, or damage) relating to the Services, the content available through the Services, your User Submissions and/or Beepi’s intellectual property rights, Beepi’s operations, and/or Beepi’s products or services.

G. Small Claims Matters Are Excluded from Arbitration Requirement.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, either of us may bring a qualifying claim of Disputes in small claims court.

H. No Class Action Matters.

You and we expressly agree that any Dispute is personal to us, and any such Dispute shall only be resolved by an individual arbitration. Neither party agrees to class arbitration, or an arbitrationwhere a person brings a Dispute as a representative of any other person or persons. Neither you nor we agree that a Dispute can be brought as a class or representative action outside of arbitration, or on behalf of any other person or persons. The parties agree that a Dispute may only be resolved through an individual arbitration and shall not be brought as a class arbitration, a class action, or any other representative proceeding.

I. Federal and State Courts.

Except to the extent that arbitration is required above, any action or proceeding relating to any Dispute may only be instituted in state court in San Mateo County, California or federal court in San Francisco, California. Accordingly, you and Beepi consent to the exclusive personal jurisdiction and venue of such courts for such matters.

J. Applicable Law.

This Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with, and any Dispute and Excluded Dispute will be resolved in accordance with, the laws of the State of California, without regard to its conflict of law provisions.

JUST WHAT IS A BRANDED TITLE ???

 

The State of California “brands” its titles. These brands indicate the vehicle’s past history.

Here are the DMV definitions of those brands as reported on the California Department of Motor Vehicle website.

Salvaged: Vehicles marked with a “salvaged” brand were involved in an accident or incurred considerable damage from another source, such as a flood or vandalism. This brand includes previously dismantled (junked) vehicles.

Original Taxi or Prior Taxi: Vehicles formerly used “For Hire” which usually have high mileage.

Original Police or Prior Police: Vehicles formerly used by law enforcement and which usually have high mileage.

Non-USA: Vehicles manufactured for use and sale outside the United States which have been converted to meet Federal and California safety and emissions standards.

Warranty Return or Lemon Law Buyback:Vehicles which have been returned to the manufacturer under California’s Lemon Law.

Remanufactured; Vehicles constructed by a licensed remanufacturer and consisting of used or reconditioned parts. These vehicles may be sold under a distinctive trade name.

The California website does an excellent job explaining the definition of salvage titles and what to expect. Here are some excerpts from the website:

A salvage vehicle is a vehicle that has been wrecked or damaged to such an extent that it is considered too expensive to repair. The title, license plates, and a required fee are submitted to the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and a Salvage Certificate is issued for the vehicle.

Although many salvage vehicles are expertly repaired, some vehicles: are not properly repaired and/or tested and may be dangerous to operate and have been repaired with stolen parts. If the California Highway Patrol or DMV determines the vehicle or its parts have been stolen, the vehicle cannot be registered and the vehicle or parts will be seized.

Sellers, including dealerships, are legally required to disclose the vehicle’s salvage title and history, but the law is difficult to enforce, especially when cars come in from another state. I’m not trying to sound like a commercial for CarFax, but the service can be invaluable when dealing with used cars that may be from other states.

The website also reports some of the following “clues” may indicate the vehicle has an undisclosed salvage history.

  • Signs of major repairs on the inner fender structures.
  • Mud, mold, or rust under the carpet in the trunk.
  • Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) plate attached with materials other than rivets.
  • Safety restraint light is always on.
  • Airbag covers are resealed or improperly installed.
  • National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) labels which usually appear on doors, inside hood, tailgate, or hatchback are missing.

About Us

Selling a used car is painful – you meet strangers during your free time, and then are frustrated when they make lowball offers. But if you trade your car in, the dealer will offer you up to 40% less than the car is worth. Carlypso is not a dealer. We are a service which finds a seller the most profitable channel for selling their car and removes as much pain from the process as possible: advertising a car, coordinating test drives and negotiating with buyers.

This awesome Cadillac Escalade is for sale on Beepi.us, a whole new way to buy and sell cars online, safely and hassle-free.

http://www.beepi.us/c/11035

It is official; Beepi is now accepting Cadillacs, and we welcome our very first one with this awesome 2012 Escalade! With 403 horse-power to support the large frame of this baby, it will get you to top speeds a lot quicker than you’d expect.

Beepi Seller Sharon loved his Cadillac, but decided to move on to a newer car. Our Beepi Inspector Clay was able to look at this more closely and he had no doubts about calling this Beepi-worthy. He noted that the car is very luxurious and that the car drove great on the road test!

Once again, we are very proud to welcome this new addition to the Beepi family!

This beepin’ awesome Cadillac is offered for sale directly by Sharon, its proud owner.

Why should you own a 2012 Cadillac Escalade?

Edmunds said…
There are big SUVs, and then there’s the 2012 Cadillac Escalade. There are luxury SUVs, and then there’s the Escalade. You could buy any number of more sensible and all-around better vehicles instead, but there’s just no substitute for the Escalade’s visual presence and grand celebration of wealth and power.

The Escalade is the king of General Motors’ full-size truck and SUV platform. It shares its basic body structure and dimensions with the Chevy Tahoe, but from there thorough upgrades make it so much more than just a rebadging exercise (unlike early Escalades). The 403-horsepower V8 gets the Escalade up to speed quicker than you’d expect from something so big. The suspension is adaptive, allowing for a more compliant and controlled ride. The styling obviously sports Cadillac’s unique brand of pomp, but it’s the interior that demonstrates a more luxurious aesthetic.

So, what’s the advantage of owning a Beepi Cadillac Escalade?

First, this Cadillac is a Certified Pre-Owned. This Beepin’ great Escalade has passed a 185-point inspection, including a test drive, with one of our certified technicians.You can see a full description of the technical, mechanical and cosmetic inspection process this Cadillac Escalade went through here:
http://www.beepi.us/beepicertified

Because of this, all Beepi cars come with a 3-month, 3,000-mile warranty; we’re so confident in the quality of this Cadillac Escalade, we’ll take care of anything that happens in the first three months.

In addition to the Beepi warranty, this Beepi Escalade is also covered by Cadillac’s full manufacturer warranty for an additional 11 months / 22,500 miles, and by Cadillac’s comprehensive drivetrain warranty for an additional 23 months / 72,500 miles.

And you can buy from Beepi with confidence. All Beepi cars, including this Cadillac Escalade come with our unparalleled 10-day money-back guarantee; if you buy this Cadillac Escalade and don’t fall in love in the first 10 days, we will come pick it up and refund your entire purchase.

Lastly, if you decide to buy this fantastic Cadillac Escalade, it will be delivered right to your driveway with all DMV paperwork complete! Not only that, but built into the no haggle price above are a slew of other great perks: Beepi cars arrive washed, waxed, detailed and filled with gas, ready to drive.
Give us a call at 888-542-3374 if you have any questions about this Cadillac Escalade or about Beepi!

beepi.com is looking for the best dmv licensing consultant money can buy

beepi is a new used car dealer model

and using their wealthy uber backers combined with disruptive technology

they are attempting to change the current used car automotive sales industry

their rogue actions and blatant violation of the basic car dealer rules

have made dmv officials at the highest levels take notice

+++

the biggest problem with disruptive technology

and the used car automotive sales industry

is a nearly 100 year tradition of the government

building strong consumer protections into the law

which beepi and crew, with arrogance has chosen to bypass

+++

here are a few of the basic flaws with the beepi.com model

+++

their los altos location is unlicensed

their santa cruz location is virtually empty and not a working retail location as licensed by the dmv

their consignment agreement does not comply with current california dmv regulations

+++

the glaring omission of a federal buyers guide posted on each vehicle offered for sale

could merit a $16k fine per vehicle sold if so ordered by the DMV or the FTC

this violation alone could derail beepi.com and its disruptive technology model

+++

none of the vehicles advertised on the beepi.com website have buyers guides posted

a buyers guide must be posted on every vehicle offered for sale by licensed dealers

the offering of any used vehicle requires a current smog, safety check and vehicle history report

BEFORE the car is offered for sale

the division 12 safety check must be conducted at arms length from the dealership

by a licensed mechanic, and at last check beepi.com and carsavvy inc do not have a current BAR license

+++

current advertising rules require the posting of a license plate or the last 6 of the VIN on each ad

current advertising rules require the posting of each ad at the dealers licensed location

current advertising rules prohibit the black friday and cyber monday offers made by beepi.com

+++

current dmv rules only allow deliveries by licensed autobrokers of brokered vehicles

beepi.com is the apparent licensed dealer of record

and does not have a current autobroker endorsement on their license

the beepi.com disruptive technology model bypasses the licensed location entirely

and makes delivery to the customer bypassing significant notice postings required in each dealership

+++

beepi.com advertises certified used cars using an

improper certified vehicle designation

as per the car buyer bill of rights enacted in july 2006

+++

as the premier provider of car dealer education in california

we believe it is paramount for a $65M used car dealer startup

to adhere to the same rules and regulations imposed on every other car dealer

+++

giving allowances to the wealth or arrogance of beepi.com

and their disruptive technology model

is a slap in the face

to every law abiding car dealer we have ever taught

and really sets the stage for total chaos for the dmv licensing folks

+++

im sure there will be more to follow on the beepi.com story

DEFERRED DOWN PAYMENTS MUST BE LISTED AS A LINE ITEM

CheckCalifornia’s Automobile Sales Finance Act requires in relevant part that dealers disclose deferred down-payments on the line identified in the standard-form retail installment sales contract.  A customer will often ask, “Can I bring the other $500 in next Monday,” and dealers typically think nothing of it.  However, a recent Appellate decision demonstrates that dealers who fail to disclose deferred down-payments on their retail installment sales contracts are easy targets for lawsuits.

In Rojas v. Platinum Auto Group, Inc., 212 Cal. App. 4th 997, 151 Cal. Rptr. 3d 562 (2d Dist. 2013), the Court held that California law requires strict compliance with this aspect of the state’s Automobile Sales Finance Act (“ASFA”), rejecting the dealer’s argument that “substantial compliance” was sufficient to avoid liability. In Rojas, the dealer listed four payments totaling $2,000 as a “down payment”, instead of as a “deferred down-payment”,notwithstanding that the payments were spread over three months.  The dealer argued that he had made the important or “material” disclosures required by the ASFA and that listing the payments on the “down payment” line instead of the “deferred down payment” line was a technical violation that did not harm the consumer.  In short, the dealer argued that his “substantial compliance” with the critical disclosures required by the statute, such as the actual purchase price, interest rate, payments, and other key terms, was adequate.

In rejecting the dealer’s argument, the Court observed that the ASFA is a consumer protection statute which is strictly enforced to achieve the consumer benefit which the Legislature intended.  It noted that the failure to properly disclose the deferred down payment harms consumers because lenders are misled into believing that the consumer has sufficient financial strength to make the down payment, as opposed to the reality of having to“defer” the down payment over a period of time. Thus, consumers are induced to enter into contracts for the purchase of a vehicle which they cannot afford.

The Rojas decision will disappoint dealers who were hoping for a “no harm, no foul” decision from the Court.  Dealers have long chafed at the deferred down payment disclosure requirement precisely because some lenders do push back on buying such contracts.  However, dealers should review this issue with their lenders and not assume that lenders will reject deals with deferred down payments. Most lenders today will accept contracts that disclose deferred down payments so long as the deferred down payments are properly disclosed and collected prior to assignment of the contract.

The penalty for violating the ASFA is typically rescission of the contract, even if the contract has run its course several years later and you are suing to collect a deficiency judgment.  Dealers who have failed to disclose deferred down payments but have “Hold Check Agreements” and copies of several “down payment” checks in their deal jackets are providing the necessary evidence of culpability.

Worse, dealers are an easy target for a class action lawsuit if they fail to disclose deferred down payments.  In a class action lawsuit Plaintiffs seek to review three or four years of your deals for evidence of a systematic violation of the ASFA and the liability escalates exponentially, including the prospect of paying enormous attorney fees to plaintiff’s class counsel, not to mention your own defense costs.

Just remember:  there is nothing wrong with a deferred down payment that proper disclosure won’t cure.

tesla wants to write a new car dealer handbook ( in all 50 states )

Automaker Tesla looks to bypass car dealers

The Tesla showroom at the Natick Mall has an electric car on display.

WENDY MAEDA/GLOBE STAFF

The Tesla showroom at the Natick Mall has an electric car on display.

Across from the Victoria’s Secret at the upscale Natick Mall is the kind of stylish storefront where you would expect to buy designer jeans, boutique jewelry, and chic accessories.

But the expensive bauble on sale in this storefront is a car — the super-sleek, super-fast Tesla electric vehicle. And the Natick outpost may just be the car showroom of the future, as Tesla plans to soon introduce a midpriced model intended to broaden its appeal among car buyers.

That is, if Tesla wins its pitched battle with Massachusetts auto dealers over the right to sell its vehicles directly to the public from a comfy store, or over the Internet, rather than through a traditional car dealership, as usually required.

On Tuesday, the fight landed the two sides before the state Legislature, where Tesla and local auto dealers, through their state association, asked lawmakers to legislate the terms of car buying in Massachusetts in their respective favors.

The hearing Tuesday on Beacon Hill featured polar policies: one bill that would expressly outlaw Tesla’s direct-to-consumer sales model, and another that would legalize it.

“It really comes down to consumer choice,” said Natick state Representative David Linsky, who is sponsoring the pro-Tesla bill. “What delivers the best deal, the best service for the consumer? Let’s let the market determine it.”

Elon Musk is chief executive of Tesla, which is fighting battles in other states that have franchise laws like the one in Massachusetts.

PAUL SAKUMA/ASSOCIATED PRESS

Elon Musk is chief executive of Tesla, which is fighting battles in other states that have franchise laws like the one in Massachusetts.

The outcome of the case could help shape how consumers go about buying cars, holding out the prospect that it someday may be as easy as, say, going to the Apple store to order a new laptop.

The dealer franchise law was adopted to protect local car sellers from undue pressure from the major automakers by, for example, preventing manufacturers from opening their own nearby car lots and underselling their own dealers.

Robert F. O’Koniewski, executive vice president of the Massachusetts State Auto Dealers Association, said the law protects consumers because it encourages car sellers to compete with each other; allowing a carmaker to act as its own dealer would eliminate the dynamic of competition within the brand.

And all Tesla has to do, O’Koniewski said, is join the crowd and sell its cars through the independent dealer system.

“This has nothing to do with trying to prevent them from doing business in the Commonwealth,” O’Koniewski said. “It has everything to do with following the law, like the other 412 dealers have to do and the other 25 manufacturers have to do.”

But Tesla counters that independently owned dealers are in effect exerting a monopoly on car sales in Massachusetts. James C. Chen, the company’s vice president of regulatory affairs, told lawmakers Tuesday that Tesla might shift to a franchised dealership model in the future, but for now the 10-year-old company only makes 21,000 cars per year — not nearly enough to support a network of dealerships selling Teslas exclusively.

That means a dealer would have to sell Teslas alongside gas-powered vehicles, which sets up a conflict of interest, Chen argued.

“There is a financial disincentive for them to sell electric vehicles, versus their internal combustion engine vehicles,” he said. “To tout the benefits of an electric car would naturally denigrate the incumbent technology.”

This is the second major debate in the past year in Massachusetts about competition in the auto industry. The “right to repair” battle pitted auto manufacturers against independent mechanics over access to diagnostic and repair information, which now must be made available through a universal system by 2018. Proponents argued it was unfair for carmakers to monopolize that information and force consumers to bring their vehicles to auto dealers, where manufacturers would receive a slice of the repair bill.

Tesla, meanwhile, is fighting similar battles in many other states that have franchise laws like the one in Massachusetts. The company is also dealing with a troublesome setback, as federal safety inspectors on Tuesday launched an investigation into whether Tesla’s Model S electric car is vulnerable to fires because roadway debris can pierce the car’s underbody and battery — igniting fires in two Model S cars recently.

The lower-powered Tesla begins at around $70,000 and can top $120,000 with a larger battery and the kind of luxury amenities found in cars made by Jaguar and BMW.

Despite its price tag, the Tesla Model S has wowed car aficionados and industry reviewers with its super-fast performance, super-sleek design, and high-tech interior. No less a gimlet eye than Consumer Reports earlier this year gave the Model S a near-perfect rating — 99 out of 100 — and described the car’s performance as “a silent yet potent surge of power that will make many sports cars weep with envy.”

The higher-powered version can travel about 265 miles on a single charge and recovers about 30 miles for every hour of charging with a traditional plug.

Supercharging stations, which Tesla is building at highway rest stops across the country — with two in Connecticut — can provide a simple repower in less than an hour.

The company plans within the next few years to unveil a more affordable car that it expects will start at about $35,000, though a firm release date has not been set. More immediately, Tesla will again try to push the futuristic envelope with its Model X SUV, scheduled for next year at a similar price as the Model S. The Model X will feature “falcon wing” doors that open vertically.

The Tesla’s performance is one of the reasons Hingham resident Laura Burns bought the Model S. But she said the best part was the direct-buying experience.

“There may be people who like to haggle with dealers, but I don’t know any,” she said. “Most people hate it. The experience was night and day.”

Ex-Fresno police officer arrested in auto theft case

The Fresno Bee

An ex-Fresno police officer has been arrested in connection with an auto-theft case, according to Fresno County Jail records. Jail records show Alfred “Al” Campos, 39, was arrested by Fresno police and released on bond late Tuesday night. The jail log lists the charge as possession of a stolen vehicle. The Fresno Police Department’s Career Criminal Auto Theft Team began investigating Campos last year after he took a 2011 Chevrolet pickup to Michael’s Cadillac on North Blackstone Avenue for service, according to Fresno County Superior Court records. After a mechanic discovered that the pickup’s vehicle identification number didn’t match automotive records, he contacted police. Detectives determined the VIN had been tampered or altered. A detective also found another VIN on the pickup that was for a 2008 Chevrolet pickup reported stolen from a dealership in Fairfax, Va., on Oct. 23, 2013, the court documents stated. The stolen truck “then somehow was registered in California under Suspect Campos’ name as a 2011 Chevy pickup truck, “ Fresno police detective Cary Phelps wrote in an affidavit in support of a search warrant. Detectives used the warrant last year to search Campos’ home on Clinton Avenue and his business, A&A Auto Service, on North Blackstone near Ashlan Avenue.

Lt. Joe Gomez said Campos was terminated from the Fresno Police Department on Jan. 12, 2014

how long will dmv allow george arison of @shift_cars to sell cars with no dealer license

Shift Technologies Raises $23.8 Million to Build Used Car Marketplace

Shift Technologies Chief Executive George Arison

Watson Lu

Investors have put more than $23 million into Shift Technologies Inc., a used car marketplace that is racing Beepi Inc. and others to disrupt the multibillion-dollar sector.

Founded less than a year ago, Shift co-founders see the same market opportunity that prompted Sherpa Ventures and other Beepi investors to plow $60 million into that startup last month.

The premise is that used car shopping–be it via dealerships or direct to sellers–is unpleasant, inefficient and woefully in need of a technological overhaul.

“It’s a huge market that we see the ability to rethink and rebuild,” said Draper Fisher Jurvetson Partner Emily Melton, who co-led the company’s Series A round.

Ms. Melton said she was most excited about the large opportunity Shift is attacking, which she compared to previous DFJ investments like Redfin for home buying and SpaceX for space travel.

Like Beepi, Shift allows people to buy or sell used cars from their phones. Unlike Beepi, which emphasizes the integrity of its car reviews to eliminate the need for test drives, Shift includes test drives.

Shift employs “car enthusiasts” who function as car concierges. They schedule “instant test drives” with potential buyers and bring cars to them personally. They also meet with sellers to establish a price guarantee and then take the vehicle to a Shift warehouse to be evaluated by mechanics, detailed, photographed and posted for sale across sites including AutoTrader.com, Car.com and CarGurus.com and as well as Shift’s own site, Driveshift.com.

Shift splits the difference between the guarantee price and the final sale price with the car owner.

“Our interests are aligned. If we can get a better price then we will,” Shift co-founder and Chief Executive George Arison said.

Mr. Arison said the startup also generates revenue through add-on services like financing and warrantees and plans to expand those products in coming months.

He said he will also use the funding to hire more employees, particularly engineers, and expand the team from 20 to 60 or so within the next six months.

Expanding the San Francisco and Los Angeles markets and ultimately opening new regions is also planned.

“We think we can 10x the business over the next six to nine months,” Mr. Arrison said.

DFJ and Highland Capital Partners co-led the $20 million Series A round with participation from SV Angel, Great Oaks VC and individuals including GoogleMaps co-creator Lars Rasmussen, Meraki Networks Inc. founder Hans Robertson, Square Inc. co-founder Jim McKelvey and Shazam Ltd. founder Chris Barton.

DFJ’s Ms. Melton and Highland Capital Partner Manish Patel join the Shift board.

Valuation was north of $60 million.

Shift raised a $3.75 million seed round that was previously undisclosed.

car dealers remember and support law enforcement

And the “R” they are worthy of in return

By Alan Barcelona, President, California Statewide Law Enforcement Association

A Message To Our Members, Sworn & Non-Sworn:

Every law enforcement officer who wears a badge has taken an oath to protect and to serve,  even at his or her own peril.  On a daily basis, these fine, brave men and women RESPOND to calls for help and to very dangerous situations. They RESCUE citizens from harmful individuals and  accidents and in doing so, RISK their own safety and their lives.  They are in the face of danger and often have to make split-second decisions to save others and to save themselves.  Not every human is cut out for this stressful but proud profession and not every human is willing to make that kind of sacrifice for the safety of another, most often, a complete stranger.

In the wake of the “use of force” cases that are currently in the national spotlight, the anti-police rhetoric that has  followed, and the December 20th assassinations of New York City Police Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos – I want to remind the citizens of California and this nation, that no one puts more on the line each and every day than our law enforcement officers, our firefighters and those who serve in our military.

These law enforcement officers have families – they are mothers and fathers, sons and daughters, sisters and brothers, uncles and aunts, nieces and nephews and cousins.  They, like anyone else who goes to work, have a right to return home to their families at the end of their shifts.

Our law enforcement officers feel the anger and hatred from some of those they have taken an oath to protect, and that hurts.  Our law enforcement officers are in the thick of protestors who hurl rocks and bottles at them as the officers work to keep people and property safe, and that is sinful.  For misguided individuals to stand up in front of microphones and cameras denouncing the peace officers in this country is a shame.

Our law enforcement officers would never demand our RESPECT, they don’t have to – they are worthy of it.  My message to the law-abiding citizens in  this state and in the country is this: Don’t let our law enforcement officers stand alone to shoulder the brunt of anti-police rhetoric that is making headlines.  Let your officers know you are there for them just as they are there for you.  A kind word, a letter, a blue light on your porch.  Be the eyes and ears of our law enforcement officers and please watch their backs.

To our law enforcement officers:  Be safe, be true to your oath, take the necessary precautions to ensure you return home to your loved ones and stand tall!  The silent majority will rise to the occasion and thank you for your service and your sacrifice.
