To see more photos and details of this Honda CR-V, check out this car’s Beepi listing by copying and pasting this link into your browser
The 2011 Honda CR-V is one of the best small crossovers, with its roomy cargo area and its comfortable seating. It is an understatement to say that few vehicles do as many things as well as the 2011 Honda CR-V.
Beepi Seller Catalina loved this CR-V, especially since she was able to safely transport her children from place to place. However, she and her family are moving abroad, so she couldn’t take this awesome CR-V with her.
Beepi Inspector Clint took a closer look at this vehicle, and he particularly loved how great it drove on the road test. We are excited to bring you this very reliable car to your door!
Why should you own a 2011 Honda CR-V?
Although small crossover SUVs are extremely popular these days, it’s interesting to remember that the Honda CR-V was one of the first to pioneer the segment. Through multiple generations it’s become a best-seller, with people finding much to like in its refined driving demeanor and practicality. The 2011 Honda CR-V continues the trend and is certainly an example of Honda at its best. There are some downsides to the CR-V, but overall they’re overcome by many strengths.
We’re certainly smitten with the CR-V’s ability to comfortably take on both people and cargo. It’s one of the best small crossovers for carrying stuff, as it has a roomy cargo area that’s good for both bulky and smaller items. Other comfort and convenience features abound, such as a reclining/sliding second-row seat and available luxuries that include heated seats, a navigation system and iPod integration. On top of this, the CR-V provides responsive handling, a comfortable ride, top safety scores and a long-standing reputation for high quality and steadfast reliability.

Companies and institutions may be vulnerable to FTC claims of antitrust or consumer fraud violations without realizing it. Learn how to help prevent such potentially damaging issues through a groundbreaking, BakerHostetler-sponsored symposium on Section 5 of the Federal Trade Commission Act on Thursday, Feb. 26, 2015, from 8:30 a.m. – 5:15 p.m. at The Willard InterContinental in Washington, D.C.
Section 5 broadly prohibits “[un]fair methods of competition” and “unfair or deceptive acts or practices.” It has been aggressively used by the FTC in recent years to challenge sales and marketing conduct by companies as being antitrust or consumer fraud and deception violations. The FTC has challenged conduct that might otherwise be permissible under the Sherman Antitrust Act, an interpretation some courts have endorsed in the past. Recent public investigations against major companies have ensued, seeking consent decrees as well as restitution and disgorgement of profits. Congress has also joined the debate about Section 5, calling for guidelines, which some commissioners have proposed. These important developments have thrust Section 5 back into the sphere of antitrust and unfair competition enforcement, thereby compelling companies and their counsel to take prudent steps to protect themselves from Section 5 prosecutions.
This Section 5 Symposium will bring together present and former representatives from the three branches of government to discuss and debate the origins, past and present use, and future parameters of Section 5 as a renewed enforcement vehicle. Presenters at the symposium include:
- The Hon. Joshua D. Wright, Commissioner, Federal Trade Commission, Keynote Speaker
- The Hon. Maureen K. Ohlhausen, Commissioner, Federal Trade Commission
- The Hon. Douglas H. Ginsburg, Circuit Judge, Federal Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit
- The Hon. William E. Kovacic, former Federal Trade Commission Chairman, and now Professor at George Washington Law School
- The Hon. Terry Calvani, former Commissioner, Federal Trade Commission, and now Of Counsel, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP
- Deborah L. Feinstein, Director of Federal Trade Commission Bureau of Competition
- Jessica L. Rich, Director of Federal Trade Commission Bureau of Consumer Protection
- Matthew Owen, Chief Counsel to the U.S. Senate Subcommittee on Antitrust, Competition Policy and Consumer Rights, General Counsel to Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah)
- Anthony Grossi, Counsel to the U.S. House Committee on the Judiciary, Subcommittee on Regulatory Reform, Commercial and Antitrust Law
- Barry J. Cutler, former Director of Federal Trade Commission Bureau of Consumer Protection, and now Of Counsel, BakerHostetler
- Susan A. Creighton, former Director of Federal Trade Commission Bureau of Competition, and now Partner, Wilson, Sonsini, Goodrich & Rosati, PC
- Marc Winerman, Attorney Advisor to former Federal Trade Commission Chairman Kovacic
- Robert H. Lande, former Federal Trade Commission attorney, and now Professor at University of Baltimore Law School
- Neil W. Averitt, former Federal Trade Commission attorney and organizer of 2008 Section 5 Federal Trade Commission Public Workshop
This all-day symposium, available for in-person CLE credit*, will also be offered via webinar and available afterward as a webcast.
*CLE credit is pending for the following states:
Delaware, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.
Please direct any questions to Cassie Blaine at 216.861.7704.
Please note to all in-person attendees: this event will be streamed live via the Internet and recorded.

As we are approaching the middle of the Fall 2014 semester, most of the MBA students who will be completing their basic credits at the end of current semester are remembering Hamlet’s opening phrase “to be or not to be” shall we opt for graduation in December 2014 or extend to May 2015, because most of the International students are still in job search mode.
However, some students have different dreams such as Alejandro Resnik a 31 year old Argentinean, an MBA from MIT Sloan School of Management 2013 batch, has completed Engineering from ITBA (Argentina) and Owen Savir not much known about him except an important fact that he is a Stanford MBA 2013 batch. On April 15 2014 in Silicon Valley Bay Area together, they launched a startup called ‘Beepi’. Beepi provides end-to-end services in car selling and buying business and connects buyers and sellers of cars[i] using Peer-to-Peer (P2P) online platform.
The inception of idea came when Alejandro and his wife bought a Jeep and later were in disagreement with their decision[ii] Alejandro spoke about this problem to his angel investor friend Fabrice Grinda, who later introduced him Owen Savir. Both calibrated that if “internet of everything is changing everything” then why not car buying and selling. This led the seed for Beepi’s business model.
Beepi starts the work right by inspecting & certifying car by a Beepi inspector, taking & uploading photos, and listing the car on the website from the sellers point. A buyer has to check the listings on the website, select car of his choice and make payment (Complete Paperwork including DMV Registration, Car Wash and Wax, Full Gas Tank, Delivery charges), and the car will be delivered to the doorstep. Beepi provides guarantee to both buyer and seller; for seller the car will be sold in 30 days and for buyer 10-day money back guarantee. Additionally, Beepi provides 3 months/3000 mile full service and warranty parts[iii].
Beepi, provides convenient options of financing (Loan), bitcoin payment, and reserve the car for 48 hours by placing some deposit amount, if doesn’t want to buy the car after 48 hours deposit will be refunded. Beepi identifies important questions in the purview of a buyer and has all the answers, before one can proceed to purchase. The websites lists complete history of the vehicle in the form of Auto Check Printable report, which includes all details of the vehicle such as odometer readings, accident check, title and problem check, Vin Number. The price listed includes all the services so there are no hidden charges; to improve transparency Beepi connects you to edmounds.com to verify market rate for the same car. Beepi also provides detailed external inspection reports of dents and bruises on the car body making it easy for a user to imagine the real picture of the car.
Since Beepi is in a service based industry it has clear emphasis on customer intimacy. In order to build customer relationship and answer all possible doubts of the buyers Beepi introduces ‘Beepi Inspector’. Additionally they provide online chat and call help. Since, it is new way of services offered in the industry, Beepi is making conscious efforts to educate their customers, by providing an option of learning more on the website and provide testimonials, backseat blog where owners explain the business model in a subtle way. Beepi also has a young and diverse team, and emphasizes the importance of front line Beepi inspectors who are the first form of interaction with clients.
Beepi’s marketing strategy is very clear ‘to change the car buying and selling experience’. Make car buying selling simple, fast and fun experience end to end[iv]. Beepi provides convenience, transparency and hedges the risk in the market. At present Beepi’s target market are millennials in age of 20’s and 30’s in California Bay Area and with Beepi Prime they have expanded market to 140 cities in Nevada, Arizona, and Oregon[v]. Beepi Prime charges $999 for delivering the vehicle in 5 days to door step, using their own transportation system which charges lower than market rate.
Beepi’s team has put considerable efforts on brand building and has featured on most of the important news channels and news website to create awareness amongst users; they are creating awareness through social media (FB,Twitter and Linkedin). However, so far their reach has been considering the number of followers on the social media. Beepi differentiates itself from competitors on price, assurance, convenience, and end-to-end services; Beepi’s main competitors are traditional car dealers and craigslist.
In a location (Bay Area) where startups are like popcorns, securing funding can be a challenge, but Alejandro must have had advantage in securing funding because of his experience of working as an angel investor with Fabrice Grinda (Co-Founder of OLX). Beepi Secured $5M Series A Funding in April 2014(Is the first significant funding in silicon valley model of startup-name refers to class of preferred stock sold to the investors for their investment[vi])from investors including Redpoint Ventures, Silicon Valley bank, Jose Marin, Rick Boyle, Fabrice Grinda, Tina Sharkey and Jeff Brody. Beepi has recently raised $60M in funding from Venture Capital firms that have also invested in Uber[vii]. This funding will help Beepi to go mobile and increasing its reach to its target customer and improving on the quotient of fun on buying and selling cars on-line. Beepi is today valued at $200M starting just 6 months back[viii].
If Beepi gives everything, how does it make money to be valued so high? Here is the answer – Beepi makes approx 9% on each transaction, which 80% less than traditional dealer charges. Beepi saves cost on overheads such as administrative costs, space and human resources. From April to September 2014 Beepi had achieved revenue run rate of $10M.
SWOT Analysis of Beepi
Views of T-Birds on the Startup:
Adriano Caccamo: “I’d love to see some video reference of people that used their services on their website. There should be a video showing very closely all particulars of the cars on sale, but there are only pictures from a little far. I’d sell a car through them! I’d buy only if they offer some guarantees and if I can test it before buying it. Great Idea”
Abhijeet Joshi: “Questions their financial growth in the market which is very price sensitive. However, endorses their guarantee-based policy as very useful in consumer perspective”
Scott Grindle: “Beepi.com demonstrates both a clear service gap in a homogeneous market space and an ingeniously simple repositioning strategy. The question is, can they really change consumer habits; will they convince people to buy a car without seeing/driving it first? “
Jakub Marciniak: “I believe that the business model yields a lot of costs that need to be amortized by volume (e.g. the technicians need to be paid and motivated to be accurate in their evaluation of a car). The largest challenge in my opinion is to reach a critical mass that trusts the business model of buying a car without a test drive. Trust is the main part of a business. I analyzed the website and I am not clear about certain pitfalls that could backfire (e.g. what is “damage”? How is mileage handled if you drive over 1,000 miles in 10 days? …)
If you go to a used car dealer – do you trust him/her immediately?
Now imagine that you don’t even touch the car. Would you buy it?
Transparency in marketing is key to Beepi’s success. Good press is crucial. Leaks in the business processes are deadly.
I understand that the huge advantage is that cars can be bought, sold and shipped all over the US in little time and that the concept is portable and thus, globally applicable. But I am skeptical by nature because the amounts that are transferred are vital to some people (buying or selling a car is a major decision compared to buying or selling a new phone).
I would like to know more about how the technicians are selected, a general deconstruction of the fees that are applicable (and WHEN they occur!), a calculated example of a transaction (from seller to buyer and how Beepi makes money) and reviews from trusted sources”
If Beepi is successful, it will endorse the fact that “internet of everything is changing everything” so is customer purchase behavior. We would like to see more inspired business ideas and entrepreneurship initiatives, which will truly change the business in future.

In order for a bond company to approve a vehicle dealer bond of $10,000 or $50,000,
they will run your credit report.
If there are no negative items showing on your credit report and have a decent credit risk score,
you should not have any problems obtaining the bond.
You do not have to own real estate in order to obtain a vehicle dealer bond.
You will have problems obtaining the bond if you have any negative items showing on your credit report,
such as, bankruptcy, collect accounts, short sales, foreclosures, current past dues, etc.
It is possible to obtain the bond with other than perfect credit,
although the bond company may require financial statements (both personal & business statements),
copies of bank statements for the last 3 months, sometimes a co-signer is required.
Some bond companies will approve the bond with negative items showing,
but will charge a larger premium for the bond.
Mike at 714-797-5780 can help you with your bond needs, good, or bad credit.
You do have the option to post a cash deposit with DMV in lieu of the vehicle dealer surety bond.
You need to be aware that the law states that DMV may keep the deposit up to 3 years
after you are no longer licensed as a dealer or a superior court judge orders release of the deposit.

IF YOU OFFER CREDIT…..GET RED FLAG CERTIFIED
To help ensure your dealership gets and stays in compliance, Zurich insurance recommends the following seven steps:
1. Put the program in writing
Your program must contain reasonable policies and procedures to address four primary responsibilities under the rule. The rule also states that each program must be documented in writing. While potentially burdensome, this requirement has obvious advantages to the dealer. It forms the basis for the employee training that is required by the rule, and makes responding to government audits and inquiries possible.
2. Make a list of patterns, practices or specific activities that could be red flags signaling possible identity theft.
Your policies and procedures should require that you become at least reasonably certain of your customer’s buyer’s identity. A supplement to the rule on the FTC’s website provides illustrations of 26 possible red flags that fall into the following five categories:
—Receiving alerts, notifications or warnings from a consumer-reporting agency
—The customer presents suspicious documents.
—The customer presents suspicious personal identifying information, such as a suspect address.
—Dealership staff notices unusual use of or suspicious activity within an existing account.
—You receive notices from customers, victims of identity theft, law enforcement authorities or other businesses about possible identity theft in connection with an existing account.
Note, not all 26 possible red flags will be relevant to the way your dealership does business.
In particular, unless you have accounts to which customers can make charges after origination, for example, house credit accounts, the seven possible red flags in category four are not likely to apply to your dealership.
You also need to guard against identity theft risks that result from employee access to account information. Employee access should already be limited as part of your overall information security program.
3. Make a list of methods used to detect and evaluate if a red flag has occurred.
The program should describe procedures used to verify customer information and detect when information is incorrect. Some procedures include:
—Specifying acceptable forms of identifying information required of each finance customer
—Specifying procedures to verify identifying information, for example, using third-party resources to confirm identification or detect fraud
—Using a system to monitor employee compliance relative to their access and use of customer account information
4. Describe how your dealership will respond when red flags are detected.
The program must contain reasonable policies for responding to red flags detected during a transaction. This should include a procedure for escalating unresolved situations to senior management.
Some appropriate responses to unresolved red flags would be to:
—Not continue the transaction
—Use additional resources to verify the customer’s identity.
—Notify law enforcement.
—Determine that no response is warranted.
5. Document all red flag responses and keep them in the customer file.
All red flag responses should also be kept in a dealership file to be used to maintain and update the program.
6. Detail a plan to update the program periodically.
Update the program to reflect changes in risks to customers or to your dealership’s safety and security based upon:
—Your experience with identity theft
—New methods of identity theft
—New methods of identity theft prevention and detection
—Changes in the types of accounts offered or maintained by your dealership
—Changes in your dealership’s business or structure such as mergers and changes in service provider arrangements
7. Follow the Red Flags Rule guidelines in managing the program.
The rule provides for some specific administrative actions that need to take place to adequately manage your program. These include that your program must:
—Be approved and implemented by your dealership’s board of directors or, if no board exists, a designated member of the senior management team.
—Be periodically evaluated to determine if updates are necessary.
—Include training for relevant staff on their obligations under the program.
—Be able to ensure service providers have reasonable procedures to detect, prevent and mitigate the risk of identity theft.
Penalties for Violations
Penalties for violations of these regulations are stiff. These include the following:
—A “knowing” violation of the rule is a violation of the FTC Act, which provides for a $3,500 civil penalty for each violation.
—Enforcement actions by the FTC can carry penalties of up to $11,000 per violation, per day.
—Dealers may also be liable under state unfair and deceptive acts, and practices law, which may include individual and class action claims.

TriStar San Diego Instructor
A Ferrari Testa Rossa was auctioned in California for more than $16 million, making the red Ferrari 1957 sports car the most expensive auto ever sold at an automobile auction.
The race car is a Ferrari prototype and the first Testa Rossa ever built, with a 300-horsepower 3.0-liter V-12 engine and a 4-speed manual transmission.
Spectators at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in Monterey, California erupted in a roar as a staggering price was reached in the final bid but, shortly afterward, an anonymous buyer offered a record-breaking $16.4 million for the classic Ferrari automobile.
Auctioneers Gooding & Company were as surprised as everyone else at the shocking $16,390,000 winning bid for the classic 1957 Ferrari.
The red Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa is a former Concours d’Elegance first-place winner, and the vehicle will now be added to the anonymous buyer’s extensive investment portfolio.
California has a world record-setting love for its cars, indeed.

DECIDE FOR YOURSELF IF THE BEEPI.COM IS A SCAM OR LEGIT AFTER READING THE USER REVIEWS BELOW
- This was the best car buying experience I have ever had! The whole staff was very helpful. Any questions I had, they responded quickly. they delivered my car at my place of work. I was able to sign all of the documents, and test drive the car within 20min. The car was very clean, they put brand new tires on the car! all of the fluids were topped off, and the oil was clean, and filled.
- Take a look at the Beepi reviews. There are 2 kinds of Beepi review – 95% of them are 4 or 5 star reviews – compare that with reviews for any other car dealer at all — that tells you everything you need to know. Then there are the 1 star reviews – these are either fake (from other car dealers) or from people who had a car that did not meet Beepi’s standards, and so Beepi would not buy it from them.
- I explored Beepi when selling my Lexus RX400h. Their model is great, and their communication was very good. I’m glad I discovered them. They are definitely the best way to sell a used car. I’ll definitely consider buying from them as well.
- Overall bad experience from receiving an inaccurate quote, delay in receiving a follow up response and ultimately an uncompetitive trade in price. I was hoping beepi would resolve the current challenges in the used car market. I’m afraid beepi appears to just be another used car marketplace without the transformational DNA required to disrupt the status quo. I think they have the right intentions but there is a long long way for them to go.
- Beepi is horrible, they called me unsolicited then came and inspected my brand new 650i BMW. After wasting my time for 90 minutes they sent me an email saying that the vehicle was in a prior collision. How can that be when I purchased it brand new from the BMW dealer with 0 mileage on it and I’m the first and only driver. Please refrain from using Beepi they make complete false and inaccurate assessments.
- Site does not work, service is not what is advertised. Save yourself the time, time, time, frustration and confusion topped off with realizing that the used car salesman is a pleasure to deal with in comparison.
