Information

Why Attend?

Their automobiles are often the largest expenses consumers incur in their lives. Help your clients fight—and win—against manufacturers, dealers, or other warrantors that sell them vehicles that either were defective from the beginning or cannot be properly repaired after several repair attempts.

  • Understand the various consumer protection laws applicable to automobile sales
  • Help your client have peace of mind
  • Figure out how to successfully help your consumer client and make money doing so or without losing valuable time and money doing so

Cars are expensive. A consumer experiences a sour taste in their mouth after discovering that the car they just purchased now has lots of problems, or cannot be fixed quickly or inexpensively. What alternatives do they have: it’s now their car, and it has to be fixed, doesn’t it? Repairs are a normal part of car ownership. Some cars, though, are abnormal in this respect, defying all efforts to be repaired at a reasonable cost. Some are sold with that knowledge.

Laws are in place to protect consumers, but utilizing them successfully in the effort to assist your client can prove difficult. This seminar can help. Both of our speakers have extensive experience in this specific area of consumer protection. They’ve seen it all—the shady dealers and the lemons that they sell—and will share those experiences with you. The topics they will address include:

  • Virginia’s Lemon Law
  • Virginia Warranty Law/Uniform Commercial Code
  • Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act
  • Claims under the Motor Vehicle Dealer Transaction Recovery Fund
  • Used cars—lemon laundering in Virginia
  • Arbitration clauses—the consumer’s worst nightmare

And they will answer all of your questions, too!

MCLE Credit Caveat: The MCLE Board measures credits by the time you spend in attendance. If you enter a seminar late or leave it early, or both, you must reflect those adjustments accurately in the credits you report on your credit reporting form. A code will be given at the end of the seminar, which must be written on your MCLE form.
