Used Cars Settlement

Used car dealer agrees to $650,000 settlement

A chain of used car dealerships has agreed to pay 650-thousand dollars to settle accusations that it violated state consumer laws. Ohio Attorney General Jim Petro says JD Byrider already has paid restitution to 300 customers and has agreed to try to resolve any new complaints. The judgment announced yesterday listed several violations, including failing to post prices on its cars, not accurately disclosing trade-in payments and not telling consumers if the cars had been rentals. A lawyer for J-D Byrider says the company is willing to correct its mistakes and move forward.
