04 WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 9, 1996 Money THE SAUNA JOURNAL V CONSUMER COMPLAINTS Used car sales top complaint list Numerous complaints also issued concerning car-leasing contracts By The Associated Press WASHINGTON — The Internet is providing new opportunities for scams and so is an increase in car leasing, although complaints about them don't yet approach those of used car sales, auto repairs and home improvement. So said two consumer protection groups who asked state agencies about practices that produced the most complaints. They also learned that con artists are especially targeting the Latino community. The National Association of Consumer Agency Administrators and the Consumer Federation of America asked consumer agencies to list the top five subjects that generated the most complaints in 1995. Among car-leasing complaints is the "disappearing trade-in" where the consumer is verbally promised a trade-in amount, which does not show up in the actual contract. Nearly 4 out of 5 of the 46 respondents cited used car sales as the most frequent complaint; auto repair and home improvement complaints were not far behind. Telemarketing and new car sales were also in the top complaint list. The increase in car leasing complaints comes at a time when nearly one in three new cars is now being leased, rather than sold. "The most common complaint was that consumers did not understand the complicated contract," Stephen Brobeck, executive director of CFA, told a news conference. Some consumers believed they were buying an automobile, when actually they were leasing it, he said. Other consumers did not know about hefty charges for ending a lease contract early or for excessive wear and tear on the car. The Federal Reserve Board last month enacted a requirement that details about leases be put on a single sheet to improve consumer understanding of the deal and simplify the language. But Brobeck said it didn't go far enough. "The rules, for example, do not require a prominent statement that the agreement is for leasing not purchase," he said. "Fortunately, several states do regulate this disclosure." Among leasing complaints is the "disappearing trade-in" where the consumer is verbally promised a trade-in amount, which does not show up in the actual contract. Joseph Goldberg, NACAA president and director of the Pennsylvania attorney general's consumer protection office, said the Internet is a ripe medium for fraud. "The classified ads that used to be in grocery store tabloids are now in electronic form," he said. "You see the same type of business opportunities, which are fraudulent; you see people selling remedies and cures for cancer." The two groups gave the following advice: • Don't buy from telemarketers unless you've checked them out. • Make purchases by phone only when you initiate the call. • Patronize only firms recommended by family or friends. • When possible, keep advance payments to minimal amounts.
