Top 4 Risks Auto Dealerships Face


Introduction Owning a business can be stressful, with many obstacles to success. Auto dealership owners particularly face a difficult time when making their business work. Stereotypes illustrate cars salesman as individuals who would do or say anything to make a sale. While this may not be true, it taints the perception of many about the auto dealership and their owners. If you are a car dealership owner, protect yourself and your business from risk factors by hiring a qualified civil litigation attorney.


1. Violations of Rules and Regulations ■ Auto dealerships must adhere to many rules, including consumer rights and safety regulations. ■ Because some car dealerships must import vehicles and sell them, there are multiple rules to follow. ■ Having an attorney review your transactions and plans can help protect you from any violations and prevent future lawsuits.


2. Questions of Conduct ■ All business owners must follow ethical codes of conduct when they deal with potential buyers. ■ They must be honest in the merchandise they sell. For example, a dealer must alert buyers whether the car is being sold “as is” or if it comes with a warranty. ■ If a person finds fault with an auto dealer’s code of conduct, they may bring forth a lawsuit. Having a lawyer can help you save your reputation and business.


3. Trade-In Fraud ■ Used auto dealerships in particular must protect their business from trade-in fraud. ■ If an individual sells an auto dealership their car, they may claim later that they were not paid the correct value of the vehicle. ■ A civil litigation attorney can help you protect yourself from false allegations of tradein fraud.


4. Lawsuits from Buyers ■ Auto dealerships have the potential to face many lawsuits. ■ From disgruntled customers to consumer safety checks, owners must always be alert. ■ That is why a lawyer can help provide appropriate legal representation and peace of mind.
