What is it?
The Used Motor Vehicle Trade Regulation Rule, or the Used Car Rule, was put into effect in 1985. Most car dealers who sell, or offer for sale, more than 5 used vehicles in a 12-month period must comply with the rule. The Rule applies in all states except Maine and Wisconsin. These two states are exempt because they have similar regulations that require dealers to post disclosures on used vehicles. The Rule additionally applies in the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and American Samoa.
