Car ads broke the law — again

You’ve seen the ads — car dealers hyping big discounts, low prices and low monthly payments, and great financing deals.

Ads about good deals on cars? Not a problem. Leaving out important details about how you qualify for those deals? That’s a problem. By law, dealers’ ads must clearly disclose any “catches” — like if getting that low monthly payment requires money up-front, or if a deal is limited to people who qualify for low financing rates.

That’s the issue behind the FTC’s new settlement with Dallas-area Southwest Kia dealers.
