    “Operation Steer Clear” targets deceptive ads that could cost car buyers “billions.”
    Jan.09, 2014

    Federal Trade Commission authorities announced the results of a nationwide crackdown dubbed Operation Steer Clear.

    Auto dealers engage in a variety of deceptive practices that could, in some instances, inflate the price of a vehicle by as much as a third more than advertised.

    A senior Trade Commission official warned such fraud is far more widespread and “could very well” cost American car buyers “billions” in higher vehicle prices and illegal fees.

    “We’ve alleged these dealers used a variety of misleading ads…to get people into their showrooms,” explained Jessica Rich, the director of the FTC’s Bureau of Consumer Protection, during a news conference in Los Angeles.

    The problem of deceptive automotive advertising is “all over the country.” The FTC received about 75,000 complaints regarding car dealers during the most recent year it tracked, making that the “eighth-largest category” for the agency.

    Operation Steer Clear identified a variety of different fraudulent practices:

    Fake sweepstakes meant to draw buyers into the showroom to see if they won a big discount on a new car. But in one case the FTC targeted, Rich said, “not a single consumer, not one, won any of the listed prizes”;
    Hidden financing and other charges that could inflate the price of a car advertised at $15,000 by as much as another $5,000;
    Advertised teaser prices that didn’t make clear payments would balloon substantially after a few months.

    Such practices are “a bad way to do business and (are) against the law,” stressed Rich.
