attorney general to review car dealer markup bill proposed for 2014

December 3, 2013

By Brittany-Marie Swanson

Rosemary Shahan, president of CARS, speaks at the CFPB’s first public forum on auto lending in November.
Rosemary Shahan, president of CARS, speaks at the CFPB's first public forum on auto lending in November.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Consumers for Auto Reliability and Safety (CARS), a consumer advocacy group, submitted a new ballot initiative to the California attorney general’s office on Oct. 30. Part of the initiative calls for the elimination of dealer markup, a practice currently being scrutinized by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB).

Rosemary Shahan, president of CARS, discussed the ballot measure during the CFPB’s first public forum on auto lending, held on Nov. 15 at its Washington, D.C., headquarters. The Car Buyers Protection Act is slated to appear on the November 2014 ballot.

“I would note that the provision [aimed at eliminating dealer markup] in the initiative that we just filed … polled at 82 percent support,” Shahan said during the CFPB forum, for which she served as a panelist. “And there isn’t a lot these days that polls so resoundingly well.”

Most industry and regulatory representatives present at the forum, including CFPB Director Richard Cordray, agreed that dealers deserve to be compensated for arranging financing for consumers. The CFPB is concerned that the discretion dealers are allowed when marking up rates creates a fair lending risk. Shahan, however, disagreed.

“I don’t think they should be compensated for that,” Shahan told F&I and Showroom. “It’s something you can do yourself better for free. Why would you pay someone to put you into a bad loan?”

California New Car Dealer Association (CNCDA) President Brian Maas told the magazine that Shahan’s approach is “pretty hard to respond to.”

“The short summary is, [the initiative] is a solution in search of a problem,” he said. “It would have a potentially devastating impact on the new-car business, just to fix things that frankly are going to be resolved one way or another anyway, or don’t need to be resolved at all, or are confusing. So we’re perplexed, frankly. Why this ballot measure at this time?

“Obviously, the CFPB is looking at the issue closely and trying to decide if disparate impact or discrimination exists [in auto lending], and what’s the appropriate compensation scheme and what have you,” Maas added. “But even the CFPB has conceded that dealers should be paid for performing the service.”

In addition to eliminating dealer markup, the proposed Car Buyers Protection Act would make it illegal for dealers to sell, rent, lease or loan recalled used cars, as well as improve protections against “bait and switch” financing and for victims of identity theft perpetrated at car dealerships. The proposed ballot measure would also require that dealers offer a minimum 30-day, 1,000-mile warranty on all used cars.

The initiative also seeks to eliminate the authority of the New Motor Vehicle Board to overrule disciplinary actions against dealers and manufacturers approved by the Department of Motor Vehicles.

“There are a number of problems that have been identified over the years where the public really wants to see change, but the dealers keep blocking it in the legislature either federally, or at the state level,” Shahan said. “And so [this initiative] is aimed at getting these policies enacted through popular vote.”

The advocacy group recently sponsored SB 686, a bill intended to prohibit the sale of unsafe used cars. It was blocked in California’s Assembly Business and Professions Committee in July and cannot be revived until January 2014.

At the CFPB forum, Shahan called California “ground zero” for the issue the CFPB is currently tackling: discrimination in auto lending. California is one of two states that caps dealer markups —2.5 percent for loans up to 60 months and 2 percent for longer loans.

Shahan’s organization’s next step is to meet with the California attorney general’s office, and she said she’s prepared for a long fight. “I expect it to be a battle,” she said. “I imagine the dealers are going to oppose it tooth and nail. But I think at the end of the day, we’ll win. Because … the practices really do not stand up to scrutiny.”

Maas, however, pointed out that the ballot measure may harm the people it intends to protect.

“If dealers don’t provide financing, how does a subprime customer get financed? You can’t walk into a subprime lending intuition; they don’t exist … If I’m a credit challenged customer, it’s the dealer that is working hard to get me financed,” he said. “He’s got an incentive, he wants to sell a car … and that’s why the dealer financing model works.

“We’re a bit frustrated,” Maas added. “It’s not clear at this point how much support [Shahan] has for the measure, other than the fact that she spent $200 to file it with the attorney general.”

has tesla motors bothered to read the dmv car dealer handbook ???

By Alan Ohnsman 

Tesla Motors Inc. (TSLA)’s promotion of a lease-style finance program for Model S electric sedans spurred the California New Car Dealers Association to seek a state investigation of what it says are deceptive advertising claims.

Tesla told customers they “can take advantage of multiple incentives, gas savings, and tax savings resulting in low monthly vehicle payments, when it is unlikely that customers will actually realize such savings,” the dealer group said in an e-mail. The association made its request for an investigation of “unsubstantiated and illegal savings claims” with the California Department of Motor Vehicles.

Sept. 16 (Bloomberg) — Elon Musk, chief executive officer of Tesla Motors Inc. and Space Exploration Technologies Corp., speaks about his career and businesses. He speaks at the Montana Economic Development Summit in Butte, Montana. (Source: Bloomberg)

The electric-car maker led by billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk debuted the finance program in April and revised it in May after the company was criticized for its explanation of monthly payments. When first introduced, Tesla said customers could finance one of its cars for the equivalent of $500 per month, based on factors including fuel and time savings.

While the company’s website shows a monthly cash payment of $916 for a $71,070 version of Model S, financed for 72 months, it also displays an “effective” monthly payment of just$579 that includes fuel and time savings and the impact of a guaranteed resale price after three years.

Shanna Hendriks, a Tesla spokeswoman, declined to comment on the matter.

Tesla, based in Palo Alto, California, sells its electric cars directly through its own stores while vehicles produced by major automakers are sold through franchised dealers. That’s spurred opposition from dealers across the country.

Dealers have filed lawsuits in New York and Massachusetts to block direct sales, and the company also has been barred from selling directly to customers within Texas and North Carolina.

Tesla gained 0.6 percent to $166.58 at the close in New York. The shares have surged almost fivefold this year, compared with a 20 percent increase for the Russell 1000 Index.

GLOSSARY OF CAR DEALER TERMS

Cap Cost: this is the sale price you negotiate for that new car you want to lease; unless there’s a waiting list a mile long, this is not the same as the MSRP.

Certified: means the car has been cleaned and checked out by the dealer. Remember: only factory certified cars have the backing of the manufacturer.

Credit Report: a detailed explanation of your borrowing and bill-paying history, not to be confused with your… (See Credit Score.)

Credit Score: a three-digit number that expresses your creditworthiness. This number gives lenders a good idea of how likely you are to pay your bills.

“Cup Holder Factor”: Is your chosen car a good physical fit for you? Does the seatbelt hit your shoulder, or are you chewing on it? Do the seats and steering wheel adjust for your height and weight? Is there enough headroom? Legroom? Are there any blind spots? Are the controls and accessories logically placed and easy to locate? And, the inevitable, will the cup holder accommodate your double decaf grande latte? All this factors in to a good deal.

Curb Appeal: means cleaning up your car to make it look ten times better than it ever did while you were driving it—to entice potential buyers.

Dealer: Someone who is licensed to sell you a car, and abides by all the appropriate auto industry rules and regulations, or so you hope.

Dealer Cost: is the dealer invoice minus a whole bunch of stuff like incentives, environmental packages, advertising fees, and more. This is what the dealer actually paid for the car.

Dealer Invoice (Invoice): The price the dealer wants you to believe he paid for the car, when chances are, he really paid much less. (See Dealer Cost.)

Depreciation: The reduced value of the car after you buy it, or that portion of the car you “use” over the course of a lease.

The “Desk”: the sales manager

Extended warranty: This is also referred to as a service contract. It is an option you may purchase on a new, and some used cars. The extended warranty should cover car repairs over a longer period than the manufacturer’s warranty, which comes with the car. But beware: it’s a high-profit item for a dealer—cheaper ones are available online.

Four-Square Easy Sheets: easy sheets designed to combine all elements of the deal- the purchase price, trade-in, monthly payments and down payment. Don’t do it! Keep all items separate!

Holdback: An amount the manufacturer pays the dealer for each car sold of a particular make. Also referred to as a “kickback.”

Idiot- What you are if you don’t use AutoIdiot’s “Don’t Be an Idiot!” car-buying system before you buy, sell, or lease a car!

“In the Box”: In the salesperson’s cubicle.

Incentives: Money or other special deals that entice you to buy a vehicle.

Invoice (Dealer’s Invoice): The price the dealer wants you to believe he paid for the car, when chances are, he really paid much less. (See Dealer Cost.)

Lay-down: a customer who takes any deal the salesperson offers.

Leasing: is when you pay a low monthly fee to drive a fully warrantied, brand new car every two years or so, but you don’t actually own the car.

Mileage Allowance- the amount of miles per year you’re allowed to drive on a lease. Better not go over: the fees can be quite painful.

Money Factor: used for leases, this is kind of the same thing as an interest rate on a loan, only much more complicated.

MSRP: Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price

Options: These are extras you can have added to a standard vehicle, and usually come in packages.

Rebate: money you get back after you buy the car.

Recall: If a car model has a defect, a manufacturer may issue a “recall” notice, meaning that the defect will be fixed at the manufacturer’s expense.

Repossession: If you don’t make your car loan payments, you may get a visit from the Repo-man: the finance company that gave you the loan has every right to come and take your T-Bird away.

Residual Value: The amount a leased car is predicted to be worth after your lease is up

Rollover: this is when the dealer takes the loan from your old car and magically rolls it over into the loan for your new car. Don’t do it! You’ll be paying off two cars on the same bill!

Rustproofing: Meant to hold off body erosion, rustproofing is an unnecessary extra that a lot of car dealers push.

Salvaged or Rebuilt Title: when a car has been previously totaled, the title is marked “salvaged”. Often, these cars are dolled up and their titles are “rebuilt”, or laundered back to normal. You do not want one of these cars!

Service contract: Also called an “extended warranty,” it supplements the manufacturer’s warranty, which comes with a vehicle you purchase. A service contract is a high-profit item for the dealer. Make sure it offers substantially more than the standard warranty.

Subvent: This is when the manufacturers need to unload a certain kind of car so they inflate or “subvent” the residual value to entice you to sign up for a lease.

Target Price: the fair and reasonable price for a vehicle.

Test Drive: That’s when you take the car out for a spin- and check everything from the engine to the tires to the “Cup Holder Factor” to make sure it’s the car for you.

Title Search or Title History: gives you the lowdown on a car’s potentially sordid past. Shows a vehicle’s ownership history by using its VIN. Always do a title search if you’re buying a used car.

Upside Down: means you owe more on your car than it’s actually worth.

VIN: Vehicle Identification Number, every car’s got one.

The 5 W’s: system for advertising your car: Window (of the car), Word-of-mouth, Work (or anywhere potential buyers congregate), Wall Street Journal (really just refers to any newspaper advertisement), World Wide Web.

The Walkaround: this is when you—that’s right– walk around the car and check it out.

Warranty: is a guarantee that certain mechanical problems and body parts will be fixed if they aren’t in proper working condition. The warranty is usually limited, so make sure you know what’s included- and especially what’s not. Check online for cheaper warranties—this is a big money-maker for a dealership.

TESLA MODEL S ACHIEVES BEST SAFETY RATING OF ANY CAR EVER TESTED

SETS NEW NHTSA VEHICLE SAFETY SCORE RECORD

MONDAY, AUGUST 19, 2013

Palo Alto, CA — Independent testing by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has awarded the Tesla Model S a 5-star safety rating, not just overall, but in every subcategory without exception. Approximately one percent of all cars tested by the federal government achieve 5 stars across the board. NHTSA does not publish a star rating above 5, however safety levels better than 5 stars are captured in the overall Vehicle Safety Score (VSS) provided to manufacturers, where the Model S achieved a new combined record of 5.4 stars.

Of all vehicles tested, including every major make and model approved for sale in the United States, the Model S set a new record for the lowest likelihood of injury to occupants. While the Model S is a sedan, it also exceeded the safety score of all SUVs and minivans. This score takes into account the probability of injury from front, side, rear and rollover accidents.

The Model S has the advantage in the front of not having a large gasoline engine block, thus creating a much longer crumple zone to absorb a high speed impact. This is fundamentally a force over distance problem – the longer the crumple zone, the more time there is to slow down occupants at g loads that do not cause injuries. Just like jumping into a pool of water from a tall height, it is better to have the pool be deep and not contain rocks. The Model S motor is only about a foot in diameter and is mounted close to the rear axle, and the front section that would normally contain a gasoline engine is used for a second trunk.

For the side pole intrusion test, considered one of the most difficult to pass, the Model S was the only car in the “good” category among the other top one percent of vehicles tested. Compared to the Volvo S60, which is also 5-star rated in all categories, the Model S preserved 63.5 percent of driver residual space vs. 7.8 percent for the Volvo. Tesla achieved this outcome by nesting multiple deep aluminum extrusions in the side rail of the car that absorb the impact energy (a similar approach was used by the Apollo Lunar Lander) and transfer load to the rest of the vehicle. This causes the pole to be either sheared off or to stop the car before the pole hits an occupant.

The rear crash testing was particularly important, given the optional third row children’s seat. For this, Tesla factory installs a double bumper if the third row seat is ordered. This was needed in order to protect against a highway speed impact in the rear with no permanently disabling injury to the third row occupants. The third row is already the safest location in the car for frontal or side injuries.

The Model S was also substantially better in rollover risk, with the other top vehicles being approximately 50 percent worse. During testing at an independent facility, the Model S refused to turn over via the normal methods and special means were needed to induce the car to roll. The reason for such a good outcome is that the battery pack is mounted below the floor pan, providing a very low center of gravity, which simultaneously ensures exceptional handling and safety.

Of note, during validation of Model S roof crush protection at an independent commercial facility, the testing machine failed at just above 4 g’s. While the exact number is uncertain due to Model S breaking the testing machine, what this means is that at least four additional fully loaded Model S vehicles could be placed on top of an owner’s car without the roof caving in. This is achieved primarily through a center (B) pillar reinforcement attached via aerospace grade bolts.

The above results do not tell the full story. It is possible to game the regulatory testing score to some degree by strengthening a car at the exact locations used by the regulatory testing machines. After verifying through internal testing that the Model S would achieve a NHTSA 5-star rating, Tesla then analyzed the Model S to determine the weakest points in the car and retested at those locations until the car achieved 5 stars no matter how the test equipment was configured.

The Model S lithium-ion battery did not catch fire at any time before, during or after the NHTSA testing. It is worth mentioning that no production Tesla lithium-ion battery has ever caught fire in the Model S or Roadster, despite several high speed impacts. While this is statistically unlikely to remain the case long term, Tesla is unaware of any Model S or Roadster occupant fatalities in any car ever.

The graphic below shows the statistical Relative Risk Score (RRS) of Model S compared with all other vehicles tested against the exceptionally difficult NHTSA 2011 standards. In 2011, the standards were revised upward to make it more difficult to achieve a high safety rating.

An autobroker’s endorsement requires payment of fees as required by subdivision (d) of Section 9262 of the California Vehicle Code.

A dealer may not engage in brokering a retail sales transaction without having an autobroker’s endorsement to their dealer’s license.

Upon issuance of an autobroker’s endorsement to a dealer’s license, the department shall furnish the dealer with an autobroker’s log.  The autobroker’s log remains the property of the department and may be taken at any time for inspection.

The autobroker’s log must contain the following information with respect to each retail sale brokered by that dealer:

  • Vehicle identification number of brokered vehicle
  • Date of brokering agreement
  • Selling dealer’s name, address, and dealer number
  • Name of consumer
  • Brokering dealer’s name, address, and dealer number (CVC Section 11735)

A dealer who brokers a motor vehicle sale shall deposit directly into a trust account any purchase money, including purchase deposits, it receives from a consumer or a consumer’s lender.

  • All trust accounts required by CVC Section 11737 shall be maintained at a branch of a bank, savings and loan association, or credit union regulated by the state or the government of the United States.
