CHAPTER II: ATTORNEY GENERAL
PART 475 MOTOR VEHICLE ADVERTISING
SECTION 475.420 BUY-DOWN RATE
Section 475.420 Buy-Down Rate
a) It is an unfair or deceptive act to advertise the sale of any motor vehicle at a "buy-down" rate, as that term is defined in Section 475.110, without clearly and conspicuously disclosing in the advertisement that the interest rate is not exclusively sponsored or subsidized by the manufacturer, if such is, in fact, true.
"Manufacturer" includes any subsidiaries of the manufacturer that advertise or offer motor vehicle financing.
b) It is an unfair or deceptive act to advertise or offer below market finance rates, unless the advertised "buy-down" rate complies with the Federal Truth In Lending Act.
