car dealer compliance tips from the #realcardealerschool

we recently met with larry, executive director of IADAC

and we discussed the need for enhanced car dealer education

in that regard

we offer specific tips for continued compliance

for existing california car dealers

odometer exemption does not allow a rollback and written disclosure is required

car dealers know that certain vehicles are exempt from odometer disclosure

on the bill of sale

that being said

any change in the actual mileage of a vehicle

whether wholesale or retail

requires a written disclosure

an announcement at auction

and the placement of a mileage sticker in the drivers door frame

announcing the date of change and the mileage at change
