Fight Auto Dealer Fraud in PA with the Pennsylvania Unfair Trade Practices and Consumer Protection Law

The Pennsylvania Unfair Trade Practices and Consumer Protection Law is a powerful tool for consumers in the fight against fraudulent and deceptive car sales by dealerships. The Unfair Trade Law gives car purchasers the ability to sue dealerships for a number of unfair or deceptive practices. Some improper actions by dealerships that violate the Unfair Trade Law include claiming that a vehicle is certified when it is not, misrepresenting the condition or features of a car, selling a car as new when it is used, failing to comply with a written warranty and misrepresenting that repairs are needed when they are not.

What is a Lemon Law and how can it be used to protect you?

The tart fruit known as Citrus Limon is not a naturally occurring treat. Lemons were developed as a hybrid that are said to have been brought to the Americas by explorer Christopher Columbus in 1493.

Part II: the biggest auto recalls in history

Regular readers of our Lemon Law and Car Fraud Blog will recall that we recently published a post about the biggest auto recalls in U.S. history since the 1970 creation of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

In that post, we looked at a couple big auto recalls that happened not long after the NHTSA was established: the 1972 recall of 4.1 million Fords and the 1973 recall of 3.7 million GM vehicles. The Ford recall was over defective seatbelts and the GM vehicles were recalled to fix defective underbody shields.

Part I: the biggest auto recalls in history

One of the best things about the establishment of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in 1970 was that it required automakers to meet safety standards and issue recalls when vehicle defects affect motorist safety.

Do you have to stop driving if your check engine light comes on?

There’s nothing worse than finally driving home after a long day and seeing your engine light come on. Depending on where you are and who you’re with at the time, it can be frustrating and scary. Plus, you may not know whether you can continue driving.

The kind of mechanical issue you have will remain unidentified until you pull codes.
