My Used Car Resolutions for 2013

By December 31, 2012

Follow me on:

Sure, I have the normal resolutions like everybody else (lose weight, exercise more, save the world, etc.). But this year I take the unusual step of coming up with resolutions for the used car business.

Among my used car resolutions are doing something about curbstoners. Those are the dealers who pose as private sellers to avoid pesky things like state and federal law, consumer protection, licenses and registrations. They're masters at making used cars just good enough to run and then vanishing when the cars break down.

I think there is going to have to be a crackdown by state authorities on these dishonest business owners. Of course, states are already overburdened and under-budgeted so it might be difficult to garner much interest in this cause.

However, I think it's well worth pursuing. Any suggestions about how to stop this business practice? All feedback is welcome. Comment below.
