in house financing requires a 30 day warranty

AB 1447 (Feuer)
Automobile sales finance: sellers.

The Rees-Levering Motor Vehicle Sales and Finance Act regulates conditional sales contracts for motor vehicles, and, among other things, requires a person selling or leasing a motor vehicle under a conditional sale contract to disclose certain information to the buyer of the vehicle.

A willful violation of those provisions is a misdemeanor and may render the contract unenforceable. A seller who violates the provisions of the act may also be liable to the buyer for monetary damages.

This bill requires a buy-here-pay-here dealer, as defined, to issue a 30-day or 1,000-mile warranty to the buyer or lessee of a used vehicle bought or leased at retail price, and would require the warranty to cover the engine, transmission, drive axle, front and rear wheel drive components, engine cooling system, brakes, front and rear suspension systems, steering, seatbelts, inflatable restraint systems, catalytic converter or other emissions components, heater, seals and gaskets, electrical, electronic, and computer components, alternator, generator, starter, and ignition system.

The bill requires the buy-here-pay-here dealer to either repair those covered parts that fail or, at the buy-here-pay-here dealers election, to cancel the sale or lease and reimburse the buyer or lessee, as specified.

The bill requires the buy-here-pay-here dealer to pay 100% of the cost of labor and parts for any repairs under the warranty.

The bill voids any sales agreement for the purchase or lease of a vehicle that waives, limits, or disclaims these requirements.

The bill provides that a warranty is deemed to have been issued if a buy-here-pay-here dealer fails to issue a warranty pursuant to these provisions.

The bill prohibits a buy-here-pay-here dealer from requiring the buyer to make payments in person, with the exception of the downpayment for the vehicle,

The bill prohibits the buy-here-pay-here dealer from repossessing the vehicle or charging a penalty following timely payment of a deferred downpayment.

The bill prohibits the buy-here-pay-here dealer from, after the sale of the vehicle, tracking the vehicle using electronic tracking technology and from disabling the vehicle with starter interrupt technology, except as specified, and would make a violation of these prohibitions a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of up to $1,000.

The bill also makes findings and declarations related to buy-here-pay-here dealers, and would authorize the Department of Motor Vehicles to promulgate any necessary regulations.

The federal buyers guide must be posted to reflect a 30 day 1000 mile warranty if buy here pay here financing is offered within the dealership.

 

AB 1534 (Wieckowski)
Vehicles: dealers: used vehicle sales: labeling requirements.

Existing law regulates the accuracy of information provided to consumers during vehicle sales, including the information contained in advertising, brochures, and manuals, as specified.

Existing law also requires manufacturers, as specified, to disclose certain information regarding a vehicles engine, as specified, by affixing a label on the vehicle. A violation of these provisions is an infraction.

This bill requires a licensed dealer, as defined, to affix to and to prominently and conspicuously display a label on any used vehicle offered for retail sale that states the reasonable market value of the vehicle.

The bill requires the label to contain specified information used to determine the vehicles reasonable market value and the date the value was determined.

The bill requires a licensed dealer to provide to a prospective buyer of the used vehicle a copy of any information obtained from a nationally recognized pricing guide that the licensed dealer used to determine the reasonable market value of the vehicle.

The bill requires the label to meet all the following conditions:

 

a)   Be in writing with a heading that reads “REASONABLE

MARKET VALUE OF THIS VEHICLE” in at least 16-point bold

type and text in at least 12-point type.

 

b)   Be located adjacent to the window sticker identifying

the equipment provided with the vehicle, or if none,

located prominently and conspicuously on the vehicle.

 

c)   Contain the information used to determine the reasonable

market value, including, but not limited to, use of a

nationally recognized pricing guide for used vehicles, and

the date the reasonable market value was determined.

 

d)   Indicate that the reasonable market value is being

provided only for comparison shopping and is not the retail

sale price or the advertised price of the vehicle.

 

The bill defines “nationally recognized pricing guide” as including,

but not limited to, the Kelley Blue Book, Edmunds, the Black

Book, or the National Automobile Dealers’ Association (NADA)

Guide.

Bucky Harris, former Fresno car dealer of “Noooobody!” renown, dies

BY GEORGE HOSTETTER

The Fresno Bee

 The Fresno auto-dealer who became somebody by trumpeting “nobody” in his sales pitch has died.

Make that “noooobody!”

Norman K. Harris, the one-time owner of Fresno Dodge who was known to most as “Bucky,” died Friday in his sleep at his Fresno home. He was 87.

For more than 40 years, Mr. Harris made his mark in Fresno as a businessman and community leader. But he had barely unpacked his bags after coming to town from Southern California when his public identity changed forever.

Mr. Harris was 43 when, in June 1970, he bought Fresno Dodge Inc. from Sandy Crocket and Max Hessman.

Mr. Harris had no roots in the Valley. He was born in Iowa and had been a top-notch basketball player at Palatine High School near Chicago. He served in the Navy during World War II, got married (Margi, who survives him, was his wife for 64 years), then went to work for Dodge.

But Mr. Harris by the mid-1960s had worked his way up the corporate ladder to be Dodge’s Western area sales manager, so Fresno was no stranger to him.

Selling cars in the Fresno of 1970 was not for the meek. Most dealerships were concentrated in downtown. Fresno Dodge was on Fulton Street. Sierra Chrysler/Plymouth, Dan Day Pontiac and Frontier Chevrolet were a stone’s throw away. Caves Buick and Friendly Ford were a short hop north on Blackstone Avenue.

Dealers fought each other through their advertising. Everyone angled for a branding gimmick to separate their store from the pack. Mack Lazarus in Kerman promised he would “stand on my head” to sell one of his Fords or Ramblers.

If longevity is the yardstick, Mr. Harris came up with the winner. Tall and personable, he stood amid Fresno Dodge’s cars in TV commercials and promised viewers that not a single competitor could beat his bargains.

“Remember,” Mr. Harris said, “that’s nobody but noooobody!”

It took some skill and timing to pull off the “noooobody.” Within a few years Mr. Harris was known as the “nobody but noooobody” man. Then he became “Mr. Nobody.” Finally, in a transformation that shows America’s fondness for nicknames, he became simply Bucky “Nobody” Harris.

Mr. Harris in the mid-1970s said he often received mail addressed to “Mr. Nobody.” Kids tugged his sleeve and insisted he repeat his trademark line. He complied, the only variation being the number of “o”s in the key word’s first syllable.

“I really don’t enjoy making commercials,” Mr. Harris told The Bee in 1974. “It’s a time-consuming thing.”

Mr. Harris had flair to go with his ambition. He added Rolls Royce in 1975 to his dealership’s stable of cars. A business name like “Fresno Dodge-Rolls Royce” probably won’t be seen again.

Mr. Harris in 1989 became the first dealer between Sacramento and Thousand Oaks to sell the Lexus, Toyota’s new luxury car. Mr. Harris promised a few years later to convince Chrysler (owner of Dodge) to send one or two of the automaker’s new Dodge Vipers to Fresno for sale. By early 1993, the first Viper with its 488-cubic-inch, V-10 engine was in town, awaiting seller-buyer negotiations.

Fresno Dodge was sold to Lithia Motors Inc. in 2006. Mr. Harris remained active in business and community affairs.

Fresno and its car-selling industry changed greatly over the past 43 years. Many of the new-car dealerships moved north. Blackstone near downtown remains a center for car sales, but the vehicles generally are trade-ins.

The industry’s one constant is fierce competition.

Mr. Harris some 40 years ago explained why he took the time and effort to make sure Fresno Dodge TV commercials had the perfect “noooobody!” at the end.

“The response,” Mr. Harris said, “has been tremendous.”

Norman K. ‘Bucky’ Harris

Born: Jan. 22, 1926

Died: Sept. 27, 2013

Occupation: Auto dealer

Survivors: Wife Margi Harris; sons Tim and wife Leanne Harris, Bill and wife Susy Harris and John and wife Kina Harris; daughters Patti and husband Mike Carey, Suzy and husband Ben Ewell; 16 grandchildren; and one great-grandchild.

Services: Funeral Mass will be celebrated at 10 a.m. today at Holy Spirit Catholic Church, 355 E. Champlain Drive, Fresno. Donations may be made to Nancy Hinds Hospice or Holy Spirit Catholic Church.

tesla faces investor lawsuit over model s fires

Tesla Model S fires lead to investor lawsuit
| By dbaker@sfchronicle.com (David R. Baker)

In a fitting finale to a week Tesla Motors executives would rather forget, a law firm announced Friday that it had filed a class-action suit against the electric car maker for allegedly misleading investors over the fire risk posed by the company’s Model S sedan.

The firm of Pomerantz Grossman Hufford Dahlstrom & Gross accused Tesla of making misleading statements about the car’s safety, in spite of “undisclosed puncture and fire risks” that the law firm attributes to “material defects” in the Model S battery pack.

On Wednesday, a Model S caught fire on a Tennessee freeway after striking a metal towing hitch lying in the road. The hitch punctured the electric car’s battery pack, which lies beneath the floorboards and is protected from the road by a steel shield. It was the third Model S fire in six weeks, and it helped drive down the company’s stock.

Reviewers have given the Model S high marks for safety, and the car scored higher on tests from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration than any other U.S. vehicle. But the new suit alleges that the car “suffered from material defects which caused the battery pack to ignite and erupt in flames under certain driving conditions.”

The first Model S fire, on October 1, happened after a driver on a freeway outside Seattle struck a curved piece of metal, which punched through the plate protecting the battery pack. The second fire, which happened in Mexico, involved a driver racing through a roundabout, striking two walls and finally hitting a tree.

Pomerantz seeks to represent shareholders who bought Tesla stock between May 10 of this year and Nov. 6, the day of the third fire. May 10 roughly marked the start of a spectacular run-up in Tesla’s share price. The stock closed May 10 at $76.76 and peaked in late September at $193.37. It closed Friday at $137.95.

Tesla, based in Palo Alto, declined comment on the suit Friday. The suit was filed in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California.

Pomerantz specializes in corporate, securities and antitrust suits. The firm on Friday also sued J.C. Penney, claiming the retailer tried to hide its shaky finances from investors.

when you start they call you ” new fish “

learn the lingo

+++++

Be-back: A customer who leaves the car lot promising to return later, saying, “I’ll be back,” or some variation of that statement. “The guy was a be-back. But I think he meant it. I’ll see him again.”

Bumping: Raising the customer’s offer for a car. “If Mr. Customer says he only wants to pay $250 a month, just say, ‘Up to — ?’ He’ll probably bump himself up to $300 without you doing anything.”

“Buyers are liars”: Car salesmen know they have a reputation for dishonesty. But they counter with this claim of their own.

Salesman #1:After the test-drive, this guy tells me he has to leave ’cause he’s got a doctor’s appointment. Yeah, right.”

Salesman #2:“What can I tell you, man? Buyers are liars.”

Closer: An experienced salesman who is brought in to “close” the customer by making them agree to a deal. “If I worked with a better closer, I’d have more units on the board.”

Demo: This is the test-drive. “This guy comes in, demos the car, and I think he’s ready to buy, right? Then he tells me the car’s for his wife and he can’t make a decision without her. Same old line.”

F&I: This stands for the Finance and Insurance office where the documents are signed. The F&I salesperson usually will push products such as extended warranties, fabric protection and alarms. “The wait for F&I is two hours. Better stick with your customer so they don’t skip out the back door.”

“The feel of the wheel will seal the deal”: It is assumed that if you test-drive a car, you will buy it. “This prospect was on the fence, right? I get him in the car, he drives the thing, now he’s hot to buy. It’s like they always say, ‘The feel of the wheel will seal the deal.’”

First pencil: This is the opening offer from the sales manager, usually written onto the four-square worksheet, so-called because it is highly negotiable, i.e. written in pencil, not ink. “I show my customer the first pencil and it’s so high he nearly dies. I scrape him off the ceiling and make a deal.”

Four-square: As negotiations begin, the salesman pulls out a worksheet divided into four squares which represent the four elements of a car deal: selling price, trade-in value, monthly payment and down payment. “I started working the four-square and looked up at the prospect. It was great — they had no idea what the hell I was talking about.”

Full pop lease: This is when a vehicle is leased at 110 percent of the sticker price — the highest amount allowed by most banks. “I got them into a full pop lease. I’ll get a nice voucher for that.”

GM: The general manager. The GM is the head honcho at the dealership. He runs the business from day to day. “The guys were standing out on the curb drinking coffee so the GM called them into the tower and read them the riot act.”

Green pea: A new car salesperson. “The funny thing is, green peas can outsell the veterans. That’s because they don’t know how hard this job is.”

Grinder: A customer who negotiates for hours over a small amount of money. “We were only $100 apart, but the guy wouldn’t sign. Man, what a grinder.”

Home run: This applies when a salesman has taken advantage of every element of the deal: trade-in, sale price and financing. “I stole their trade and buried them in a full pop lease with 9.9 percent financing. Home runs like that don’t come along everyday.”

Lay down (Also “Lie down” depending on usage): A customer who takes whatever deal the salesperson offers. “I quoted him monthly payments of $575 and he took it! I wish all the customers were lay downs like that.”

Mini: The commission on a deal where the car was sold at close to invoice price. “Sure, the deal was only a mini. But I qualified for a weekend bonus and made a grand.”

Mooch: A customer who wants to buy a car at invoice. “People are spending too much time on the Internet reading invoice prices. It’s turning them into a bunch of mooches.”

Packing payments: Adding extra profit to the cost of a car. “This place I used to work got busted for packing payments. Bummer. But it was great while it lasted.”

The Point: The place on the car lot where the “up” man stands looking for customers. “The GM saw me standing on the point with my hands in my pockets. He went ballistic and sent me home for the day.”

Pounder: A deal with a $1,000 profit in it. “Doctor comes in and buys the top-of-the-line model, fully loaded — and he pays sticker! That’ll be a two-pounder for me.”

“Rip their heads off”: This describes taking a customer to the cleaners. “I sold them this fully loaded, top-of-the-line model at a grand over sticker — I mean, I just ripped their heads off.”

Roach: A customer with bad credit. Not to be confused with the “roach coach” (see entry below).“The guy looked good. But we ran his credit, and he turned out to be a roach. We’re talkin’ a 400 credit score, repos and bankruptcies out the wazoo.”

Roach coach: The food truck that comes around to the dealership everyday. “I shouldn’ta eaten that chili from the roach coach. My stomach’s killin’ me.”

Spiff: A tip, kickback or payment of any kind, usually cash which is handed between salespeople.“I spiffed the F&I guy $20 bucks, and he took my customers first.”

Strong: This has a special meaning on the car lot. It means holding firm on your price and being a tough negotiator. “When they ask for your price, you have to be strong. Hit ‘em with high payments, then scrape them off the ceiling and start negotiating.”(See also “weak.”)

Tower: The office where the sales managers work. This is usually a raised platform allowing the managers to see over the roofs of the cars so they can watch customers and their salespeople.“Attention: All new car salesmen report to the new car tower!”

Turn over: Also known as “turning,” this is the practice of passing a customer from one salesman to another. It is thought that this will prevent customers from leaving the car lot. The theory is that the customer might just have bad chemistry with the first salesman and he might like the next salesman. “I turned this guy to my partner and he wound up buying. I’ll get half of the commission on the deal.”

Up: A customer who walks onto the car lot. The term probably comes from the order in which customers are taken, as in: “Who’s up next?” “There are customers all over the lot — looks like the ups bus just arrived.”

Voucher: Car salespeople receive a voucher to let them know what their commission was for selling a car. They don’t know until the deal is finalized exactly how much they will receive. “Check out this voucher. I thought I had a pounder. Instead it’s a mini.”

Weak: This describes being a weak negotiator or coming down too quickly on price. “The guy was weak so he only lasted a few months. How are you going to make money in this business if you give away cars?”

always be careful with salvage vehicles

Nashville flood car

Sometimes a car deal sounds too good to be true – in which case, it may very well turn out to be a salvage. Most times you want to steer clear of these. Case in point involves vehicles with a salvage title.

When a vehicle has a salvage title, it typically means that at some point in its history it has been declared a total loss by an insurance company. This could be the result of an accident, fire, vandalism or other natural or man-made disaster. The damage the vehicle sustained has to be worth 75 percent of more of its value. Stolen vehicles that were recovered could also wind up with a salvage title in some states.

Another instance where a car ultimately carries a salvage title is government cars used for testing. After the testing is complete and the government has no further use for them, they are sold with a salvage title.

The salvage title is issued by the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), depending on the state, after going through an inspection. Note that inspection procedures vary from one state to another, with some being a simple VIN and emissions system check and others requiring a full inspection. Once a car has a salvage title, it cannot be driven, sold or titled in its current condition.

Salvage title cars may be able to be repaired and the DMV could issue a new title after a safety inspection. The vehicle will be “branded” as a salvage-title or restored salvage or resalvaged vehicle so that any prospective buyers know what they’re getting.

Is buying a car with a salvage title that’s been repaired always a bad idea? Experts say that if you have the time, money and are willing to go through having the vehicle properly repaired, a salvage title vehicle may be one choice. On the other hand, it could be a lengthy and expensive proposition, one that you might be better to avoid. Stick with a thoroughly inspected and mechanically sound used vehicle sold by a reputable dealer or private seller.

cal ag privacy unit to begin car dealer red flag rules enforcement

SACRAMENTO – Attorney General Kamala D. Harris today announced the creation of the Privacy Enforcement and Protection Unit in the Department of Justice which will focus on protecting consumer and individual privacy through civil prosecution of state and federal privacy laws.

“In the 21st Century, we share and store our most sensitive personal information on phones, computers and even the cloud. It is imperative that consumers are empowered to understand how these innovations use personal information so that we can all make informed choices about what information we want to share,” said Attorney General Harris. “The Privacy Unit will police the privacy practices of individuals and organizations to hold accountable those who misuse technology to invade the privacy of others.”

The California Constitution guarantees all people the inalienable right to privacy. The Privacy Unit will protect this constitutionally-guaranteed right by prosecuting violations of California and federal privacy laws. The Privacy Unit centralizes existing Justice Department efforts to protect privacy, including enforcing privacy laws, educating consumers and forging partnerships with industry and innovators.

The Privacy Unit’s mission to enforce and protect privacy is broad. It will enforce laws regulating the collection, retention, disclosure, and destruction of private or sensitive information by individuals, organizations, and the government. This includes laws relating to cyber privacy, health privacy, financial privacy, identity theft, government records and data breaches. By combining the various privacy functions of the Department of Justice into a single enforcement and education unit with privacy expertise, California will be better equipped to enforce state privacy laws and protect citizens’ privacy rights.

The Privacy Unit will reside in the eCrime Unit and will be staffed by Department of Justice employees, including six prosecutors who will concentrate on privacy enforcement. Joanne McNabb, formerly of the California Office of Privacy Protection, will serve as the Director of Privacy Education and Policy, and will oversee the Privacy Unit’s education and outreach efforts.

Protecting the privacy of Californians is one of Attorney General Harris’s top priorities. The creation of the Privacy Enforcement and Protection Unit follows the forging of an industry agreement among the nation’s leading mobile and social application platforms to improve privacy protections for consumers around the globe who use apps on their smartphones, tablets, and other electronic devices. The platform companies who signed on to that agreement — Amazon.com Inc., Apple Inc., Facebook, Google Inc., Hewlett-Packard Company, Microsoft Corporation and Research in Motion Limited — agreed to privacy principles designed to bring the industry in line with California law requiring apps that collect personal information to post a privacy policy and to promote transparency in the privacy practices of apps.

Attorney General Harris established the eCrime Unit in 2011 to prosecute identity theft, data intrusions, and crimes involving the use of technology. The eCrime Unit provides investigative and prosecutorial support to the five California regional high-tech task forces funded through the High Technology Theft Apprehension and Prosecution Trust Fund Program and provides coordination for out-of-state technology-crime investigation requests. The eCrime Unit also develops and provides training for law enforcement officers, prosecutors, the judiciary and the public on cyber safety and the importance of strong information-security practices.

car dealers…..beware of the kleenex

KIRKLAND, WA,  – For decades, one company has dominated the vehicle history market: CARFAX. With few alternatives available for vehicle history reports, CARFAX gets away with charging as much as $34.99 for a single vehicle history report.

“I just needed to prove that a car I was selling had a clean history, so I scoured the web for a ‘free vehicle history report’”, explains David Wu, “Unfortunately, there was no such thing as free vehicle history, and I felt ripped off when I resorted to paying $30 for a basic report.” After this experience, Wu went on to found VinAudit.com– a vehicle history reporting service offering a radically lower-cost alternative to CARFAX.

Since VinAudit.com’s initial release in early 2012, the service has served thousands of consumers over the Internet in addition to having with a rapidly growing presence in the automotive industry. VinAudit.com and partners of VinAudit.com served as one of the main alternatives to CARFAX providing an approved compliance solution with this new requirement that took effect on July 1st, 2012.

Assembly Bill 1215 required California car dealers to properly disclose vehicle history information before their customers purchase a car. Seeking a low-cost compliance solution, over 500 used car dealers in California have chosen VinAudit.com as their exclusive source for vehicle history reports.

“We’re just getting started,” Wu says optimistically, “One day, vehicle history may even become free.”

VinAudit.com is an approved provider and partner of NMVTIS, a US federal database wherein state DMVs, insurance carriers, junk and salvage sites with other record providers are mandated to report to. The company provides instant Vehicle History Reports that is sent to your email, can be downloaded as PDF file and can be printed. Moreover, they also offer Dealers Program and Resellers Program to the Automotive Industry with great benefits and simple set up. VinAudit.com’s mission is to make Vehicle History for free!

car broker guide to selling your vehicle

Cartelligent has released its consumer guide to selling trade-in vehicles. The service, based in Sausalito, California and with branches in East Bay, Silicon Valley and Orange County helps thousands of people purchase cars each year across all manufacturers and help them get a great value for their current vehicle. Its team of professional car buyers has put together a guide to help consumers understand the steps they need to take to sell their car on their own.

While most people are excited by the prospect of driving home in a new car, they are typically less enthusiastic about their options on what to do with their current vehicle. One of the most common questions clients ask Cartelligent is what they should do in advance to get their trade-in ready and ensure they get a fair price with a minimum of effort and expense.

Cartelligent has compiled a list of guidelines and things for consumers to consider before selling their car to make sure that it’s in the right condition and they have everything ready to make the process go smoothly.

Paperwork:
Consumers should locate the following paperwork in advance of selling the vehicle:

  •     Vehicle Title: If they do not know where this is, they will need to request a duplicate copy from the DMV before they can sell the car. If they still have a loan or a lease on the vehicle, they should arrange to pay off the balance and request the title before they offer it for private sale.
  •     Vehicle Registration: They will need a current copy of the car’s registration. If this has expired, they will need to pay the next year’s registration and any outstanding late fees and/or penalties before they can sell it themselves.
  •     Smog-Inspection: It is the seller’s responsibility to get the car smog-inspected and ensure that it passes.
  •     Vehicle History Report: They can obtain a vehicle history report through CarFax for $39.99 to prove that the car has not been in any accidents.
  •     Bill of Sale: Bills of Sale are available from the DMW. Both seller and buyer should fill it out completely when the sale is final.

 

Market Research:
Cartelligent recommends taking the time to research the vehicle’s value so that the seller knows what to expect and can weigh the potential gain of investing additional funds in repairs prior to sale. Websites like KBB.com and NADA.com can help them estimate the value range for their make and model. It can also be a good idea to look at similar vehicles online to get a sense for the local market value. Be aware that the asking price is often higher than the actual price the car will sell for.

Aesthetics:
A thorough detailing can make the car look more attractive and can add perceived value. Potential buyers will perceive a clean car as a well maintained car and assume the rest of the vehicle is also in top condition. Additionally consumers may want to consider repairing minor cosmetic damage such as:

  •     Minor dings or other body damage
  •     Windshield cracks (these may be covered by their insurance)
  •     Minor scratches and paint repairs
  •     Missing hubcaps or scratched wheels
  •     Headlight or taillight bulbs that have burned out

It can be a good idea to get an estimate on the cost of more extensive damage or needed repairs and then decide if the potential resale value of these will offset their upfront costs.

 

Mechanics:
A mechanical check-up can let the seller know if there are any issues with the vehicle and give them an estimate as to what these will cost to repair. Cartelligent recommends that the following be taken care of:

  •     Windshield Wipers: Putting a new pair of windshield wipers on the vehicle tells potential buyers that the seller has looked after the little things and builds confidence that the car is in good condition.
  •     Tires: Ensure that tires are in new or good condition. Replacing worn tires can add value to the vehicle.
  •     Warning Lights: Cartelligent recommends repairing any underlying issues causing a lighted warning indicator before putting the car up for sale.
  •     Noises: Cartelligent also recommends repairing any mechanical problems that are causing the vehicle to make noises when driven such as suspension squeaks and belt noises.
  •     Safety: Cartelligent strongly advises that the seller repair any and all issues that could make the vehicle unsafe to drive such as faulty brakes, airbags or seatbelts.

 

Selling the Vehicle:
Once the vehicle is in good shape and it’s ready to put up for sale, consumers should consider the following:

  •     Ad Copy: Be as honest as possible in the body of the ad but use words that will be compelling to potential buyers and make them want to see the vehicle in person. Avoid abbreviations, first-person references to the vehicle and short-hand that may come across as unprofessional and detract from the perceived value.
  •     Photos: Take high-quality photos of the vehicle that will show it to its best advantage in the ad. Low quality camera phone photos can make the vehicle look less appealing to potential buyers.
  •     Online Ads: Cartelligent recommends the following best practices when selling a vehicle online.
  •     Consider using a disposable cell phone rather than providing a personal number.
  •     Find a public, well-lit place for test-drives and the financial exchange.
  •     Request a cashier’s check or cash for the final payment.

 

Once the sale has been finalized, the seller will want to inform the DMV that they are no longer financially or legally responsible for the vehicle. They can fill out a Notice of Transfer and Release of Liability form once the sale is complete – it’s important to follow up in a few weeks to ensure that this went through.

Selling a trade-in can be time-consuming and confusing. Consulting this guide can help ensure that the process goes as smoothly and as safely as possible.

We welcome inquiries about these tips or about car buying in general. To set up an interview with one of our experts, please contact Jessica Carstens at 415-339-4562 or email jcarstens(at)cartelligent(dot)com.

About Cartelligent: For over thirteen years, Cartelligent has connected car buyers with the new car they want, at the right price. Thousands of satisfied clients have saved time and money while avoiding the hassle of the traditional dealer experience by working with Cartelligent to help them enjoy the car buying experience like never before.

san diego car dealer headed to trial

Former Miramar Car Dealer Headed to Trial

On Monday, a judge decided there was enough evidence to send John Mussari, the former owner of Mussari Motors in Miramar, to trial. Mussari is accused of cheating clients out of tens of thousands of dollars. NBC 7 Investigates reporter Mari Payton has more.

Former Miramar Car Dealer Headed to Trial

On Monday, a former Miramar car dealer accused of cheating customers was bound over for trial, expected to start next month.

Thanks to reports from NBC 7 Investigates, the District Attorney’s Office says more potential victims have come forward, and they were finally able to get enough evidence to go to trial.

NBC 7 Investigates first revealed customer complaints about Mussari and his high-end car dealership, Mussari Motors, in Nov. 2011.

Five years after the first complaints of theft and financial fraud were reported to the DMV, John Mussari was bound over for trial on 16 counts and five allegations.

“Our goal is to obtain as much restitution as possible and to also seek justice on their behalf,” Deputy District Attorney Luis Mendez said. “A lot of them are very upset and they took tie out of their lives today to testify.”

Mendez said Mussari took pre-owned Ferraris, Lamborghinis and Mercedes on consignment, sold single cars to multiple buyers, never paid the original owners and defrauded finance companies and banks.

John Mussari was formally charged with 16 felonies in February.

He remains free on a $100,000 bond and is scheduled to be back in court Dec. 4.

Mussari is also the target of a federal investigation that involves money laundering and drug trafficking proceeds.

Mussari’s lawyer, Anthony Colombo, didn’t want to comment Monday afternoon, but previously pointed out to NBC 7 that the federal investigation has dragged on for years with no charges filed.

learn how to read a vehicle identification number ( VIN )

What’s a VIN?
A Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) is the 17-character identifier for your car, truck, or motorcycle. It looks like this: 1VXBR12EXCP901213, and encodes the vehicle’s manufacturer, features, and serial number. No two vehicles have the same VIN, so it serves as your car’s fingerprint– this allows for all reports of accidents, title problems, insurance incidents, and more to be tracked through each vehicle’s VIN.

Through VinAudit.com, you can look up records associated with your VIN instantly:

Enter VIN:
What’s this? Example: 1VXBR12EXCP901213

Where can I find my VIN?
You can find your vehicle’s VIN in the title document, the vehicle registration, and on the insurance policy. The VIN could also be located at the following locations on the car itself:

  • On the driver’s side dashboard
    (viewable through the windshield)
  • On the driver’s side door
    (on a sticker in the door jamb)


Why would I order a VIN report?
A VIN report lets you learn about your vehicle’s history. It includes checks for whether the car has been stolen, experienced accidents, recorded as salvaged, as well as many othertitle problem checks. Ordering a VIN report before purchasing a vehicle allows you to catch potential problems and purchase with confidence.

what do these red prior history stickers mean ????

Title Brands-Where To Look

A “brand” is wording on a Certificate of Title or registration card that indicates certain conditions in the vehicle’s history. Most states put history brands somewhere on their titles and the wording varies from state to state (for example; Totaled, Reconditioned, Salvaged, Junked, Damaged, Rebuilt, Warranty Returned).

Although California has indicated prior history on titling documents for many years, vehicle history information is more prominently displayed on the latest revision of both the Certificate of Title and Salvage Certificate in a red box near the upper right-hand corner of the document.

Why Brands Are Important to Consumers

Brands indicate what has happened to a vehicle in the past. They can indicate high mileage, significant damage, or chronic problems.

What Conditions Require a Brand?

The following brands are placed on California vehicle titles and DMV records:

Salvaged-Vehicles marked with a “salvaged” brand were involved in an accident or incurred considerable damage from another source, such as a flood or vandalism. This brand includes previously dismantled (junked) vehicles.

Original Taxi or Prior Taxi–Vehicles formerly used “For Hire” which usually have high mileage.

Original Police or Prior Police-Vehicles formerly used by law enforcement and which usually have high mileage.

Non-USA-Vehicles manufactured for use and sale outside the United States which have been converted to meet Federal and California safety and emissions standards.

Warranty Return or Lemon Law Buyback-Vehicles which have been returned to the manufacturer under California’s Lemon Law.

Remanufactured-Vehicles constructed by a licensed remanufacturer and consisting of used or reconditioned parts. These vehicles may be sold under a distinctive trade name.

Salvage Vehicles
Of all the vehicle brands, Salvaged has received the most attention in the past few years.

The California Department of Consumer Affairs found that more than 700,000 structurally damaged and 150,000 salvaged vehicles are returned to streets and highways every year without a safety inspection, and pose a potential hazard to all of the state’s motorists.

A Salvage Vehicle is a vehicle that has been wrecked or damaged to such an extent that it is considered too expensive to repair. The title, license plates, and a required fee are submitted to the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and a Salvage Certificate is issued for the vehicle.

A Revived Salvage is a salvage vehicle which has been repaired and reregistered with the DMV.

Be Cautious When Buying a Revived Salvage Vehicle
Although many salvage vehicles are expertly repaired, some vehicles:

Are not properly repaired and/or tested and may be dangerous to operate.
Have been repaired with stolen parts. If the California Highway Patrol or DMV determines the vehicle or its parts have been stolen, the vehicle cannot be registered and the vehicle or parts will be seized.
How To Identify a Salvaged Vehicle
First, look at the title. The title will tell you:

If the vehicle is salvaged.
The mileage when the vehicle was last sold.
Who the owner of record is.
Sellers, including dealerships, are legally required to disclose the vehicle’s salvage title and history, but the law is difficult to enforce, especially when cars come in from another state. Be sure the seller is indeed the owner. If the seller isn’t the owner or an authorized agent for the owner, he or she is not entitled to sell the vehicle, and you are not entitled to buy it. If the seller’s name is not on the title, there must be documentation, such as a bill of sale, dealer report of sale, or power of attorney, authorizing that person to sell the vehicle.

Next, inspect the vehicle itself. Some of the following “clues” may indicate the vehicle has an undisclosed salvage history.

Signs of major repairs on the inner fender structures.
Mud, mold, or rust under the carpet in the trunk.
Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) plate attached with materials other than rivets.
Safety restraint light is always on.
Airbag covers are resealed or improperly installed.
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) labels which usually appear on doors, inside hood, tailgate, or hatchback are missing.
You might also want to check various aspects of the vehicle’s history by using the following links. By clicking on any of these links, you are acknowledging and agreeing (1) to not hold the State of California, Department of Motor Vehicles, liable for any reason relating to the condition, identification, or status of a vehicle, including, but not limited to, whether the information is inaccurate, (2) the State of California, Department of Motor Vehicles, does not endorse or make any representations with respect to any vehicle, and (3) the State of California, Department of Motor Vehicles, does not have a duty or ability to ascertain any facts from these links at the time application is made for initial registration or transfer of ownership of a vehicle.

are you in the market for a red ferrari ???

California Auctions $16 Million Ferrari

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.
