Statement of Basis and Purpose of Proposed Rule

DCA is proposing to add new rules to implement Local Laws 197 and 198 of 2017 relating to second-hand automobile dealers.  Specifically, the proposed new rules would:

  • require dealers to provide financing disclosures to consumers;
  • clarify the automobile contract cancellation options that dealers offer to consumers;
  • create a consumer bill of rights that dealers must display; and
  • clarify requirements related to record-keeping by dealers.

 DCA’s authority for these rules is found in Sections 1043 and 2203(f) of the New York City Charter and Sections 20-104(e) and 20-275.1 of the New York City Administrative Code.
