LAWMAKERS SEEK REMEDY TO MASSIVE RECALLS

LAWMAKERS SEEK REMEDY TO MASSIVE RECALLS

Four California lawmakers have introduced a bill that aims to somehow address the large number of recalls issued in the past year. Assembly members Susan Eggman (D-Stockton), Mark Stone (D-Monterey Bay), Scott Wilk (R-Santa Clarita) and Rich Gordon (D-Menlo Park) announced the need for new legislation to increase transparency and improve safety around recalled vehicles in California. They claim their proposal, AB 287 or the Consumer Automotive Recall Safety Act (CARS Act), is "comprehensive consumer protection legislation designed to comprehensively address recalls of used cars." What that means remains undefined at this point. The bill would state the intent of the Legislature to enact the Consumer Automotive Recall Safety Act to provide comprehensive consumer protections that address the low recall repair completion rate and consumer confusion regarding automotive recalls in California. The legislators said they will work with consumers, dealers, manufacturers and rental car companies to craft a comprehensive recall solution. The California New Car Dealers Association has joined the effort to craft the legislation to increase disclosure of recalls and improve safety.

FCA Sued after Man Learned Ram Pickup had Wrong Axle

FCA Sued after Man Learned Ram Pickup had Wrong Axle

A South Carolina man has filed a lawsuit seeking class-action status against Fiat Chrysler after discovering that the Ram 1500 he bought last year didn’t have the heavy-duty axle for which he had paid extra. The suit was filed Monday in U.S. District Court in South Carolina. Robert Besley Jr. bought a 2014 Ram 1500 Big Horn pickup from Triangle Dodge-Chrysler-Jeep-Ram in Graniteville, S.C., in January 2014. According to the vehicle’s Monroney sticker, the pickup came with an optional heavier-duty rear axle that had a ratio of 3.55-to-1, instead of the pickup’s standard 3.21-to-1 rear axle. In general, the higher the axle ratio, the more torque is available at the rear wheels and the better a vehicle is at towing, though fuel economy is decreased. According to Ram’s consumer website, ramtrucks.com, the 3.55-to-1 axle ratio is a $50 option on a 2015 Ram 1500 Big Horn pickup. After owning his pickup for nine months, Besley was notified by FCA that his Monroney sticker was wrong, and that his pickup instead had a 3.21-to-1 rear axle ratio. According to the suit, the automaker offered Besley “750 Mopar dollars” that could be used to buy service or accessories. The suit says that the automaker at no time “offered a complimentary replacement of his rear axle.” The suit seeks punitive and other damages from FCA. Mike Palese, a spokesman for FCA, said the company had not yet been served with the lawsuit and therefore couldn’t comment on the allegations. Another spokesman for FCA declined to say how many 2014 Ram pickups had different axles from those described on their Monroney stickers.

MORE CONSUMERS FINANCING NEW AND USED VEHICLES

MORE CONSUMERS FINANCING NEW AND USED VEHICLES

Experian Automotive says consumers are relying on financing more than ever to buy their next vehicle. According to its latest State of the Automotive Finance Market report, the percentage of new vehicles purchased with financing in the fourth quarter of 2014 increased over the previous year to reach 84 percent. Used vehicles that were financed reached a record high of 55.2 percent. Furthermore, the study shows that the average loan amount for a new vehicle in the fourth quarter of 2014 once again hit its highest level on record, reaching $28,381. This represents a more than $950 increase from a year ago and a $582 increase from the previous quarter. For used vehicles, the average loan amount increased $437 from last year to reach $18,411. Findings from the report also show that leasing continued to gain traction, as it jumped 3.6 percent from a year ago to reach nearly 30 percent of all new vehicles financed in the quarter. In addition to the number of leases increasing in the quarter, the study shows that it was slightly more affordable and easier to obtain one. The average monthly lease payment decreased $12 from a year ago to reach $408 in the fourth quarter of 2014. What’s more, the average new-vehicle lessee had an average credit score of 717 in the fourth quarter of 2014, down two points over the same time period.

DRIVETIME ALLOWS CONSUMER TO CANCEL LEASE

DriveTime has introduced its Cancel Anytime Lease program across 126 dealerships nationwide. The used-car lease option allows consumers to lease a vehicle with a down payment under $1,000 and provides the ability to return the car at any time and cancel the 30-month lease agreement without negatively affecting the consumer’s credit score or incurring financial penalties. DriveTime tested the program over the past 18 months to find out exactly what consumers pain points are when it comes to vehicle ownership. With the Cancel Anytime Lease, consumers can drive up to 24,000 miles per year and are only required to maintain the state's minimum liability coverage. Lessees also receive a complimentary maintenance package, which includes oil changes and a limited warranty lasting the life of the lease covering all critical vehicle components.

NYC INITIATIVE TO CREATE SAFER LOAN PRODUCT

New York City’s Department of Consumer Affairs announced a new initiative to create a safer loan product for qualified used-car borrowers. With the concerns that some dealerships may be engaged in illegal predatory practices, such as selling unwanted add-ons and arranging high-interest subprime loans without informing consumers of critical information, DCA is calling on banks and credit unions to submit auto loan proposals designed for low-income purchasers. DCA issued a request for expression of interest, which is an invitation to an industry to create a product under certain guidelines or submit an existing safe and affordable car loan that meets the outlined guidelines. DCA licenses 869 used car dealerships and, in 2014, DCA received 283 complaints about used-car dealers ranging from misrepresentation, to damaged goods, to breach of contract. DCA also successfully secured nearly $900,000 in restitution.

Critics say US holding looted Nazi Art

BERLIN – At New York's Museum of Modern Art, two oil paintings by German expressionist George Grosz are viewed by millions every year visiting the Manhattan institution. The two works, as well as a watercolor in storage, were stolen from the artist who fled the Nazis in 1933, his heirs say. They want them back, but MoMA has said no and U.S. courts backed up the museum's argument that the statute of limitations on retrieving such art had lapsed.
