California New Car Dealers Association Files Updated Legal Action Against TrueCar
Aug 12 15
California New Car Dealers Association (CNCDA) strengthened its legal action against TrueCar for its noncompliance with various sections of the California Vehicle Code ("CVC") pertaining to dealer licensing, brokering, advertising and disclosure, by incorporating statements made in recent weeks by TrueCar leadership and others active in the automotive marketplace. In an updated filing in Los Angeles Superior Court's Santa Monica branch, CNCDA asks the court to rule that TrueCar must adhere to the same CVC rules and regulations as other auto dealers and auto brokers throughout the state of California and that TrueCar's current operations "violate the CVC sections pertaining to dealer licensing and auto broker endorsements." This updated legal action by the CNCDA follows recent legal actions against TrueCar by both TrueCar and non-TrueCar auto dealers in California and New York State, charging TrueCarwith deceptive advertising and unfair competition.
