Attorney General Curtis Hill is telling Hoosiers to watch out for added fees put on the purchase of a car added on by auto dealerships at the time of purchase. Fees that are added on by dealers can increase the final purchase price by thousands of dollars, and in some cases are in violation of state law.
Two dealerships in Clark County were recently investigated by Hill's office based on allegations of this kind of behavior. Both dealerships made agreements with the State of Indiana which says they must pay civil penalties and pledge to stop certain business practices. The dealerships have not admitted to doing anything illegal and they have not been implicated for any violations as part of the agreement.
No such cases have been reported across the tri-state area, however if anyone believes that they have encountered these types of practices at any other dealership across the state of Indiana, they are are urged to report them to the Office of the Attorney General. Consumers can do so by going online at www.in.gov/attorneygeneral or by calling 1-800-382-5516.
