AR Code § 23-112-601 (2012) What's This?

(a) The General Assembly declares that the public interest is affected by the sale and distribution of used motor vehicles, and it is recognized that a significant factor of the inducement in making a sale of a used motor vehicle to a member of the general public is the trust and confidence of the purchaser in the retail dealer from whom the purchase is made, with the expectancy that the dealer will remain in business to stand behind and provide service for the motor vehicle purchased.

(b) It is therefore found to be necessary to license used motor vehicle dealers and to prohibit certain acts and set penalties for violations and perpetration of certain acts by used motor vehicle dealers who are not licensed as new motor vehicle dealers selling used cars incidental to their new motor vehicle dealership operations, salespersons, agents, representatives, and employees of used motor vehicle dealers in order to:

(1) Prevent fraud, improper impositions, and other abuses upon the citizens of this state;

(2) Protect and preserve the investments and properties of the citizens of this state; and

(3) Foster and keep alive vigorous and healthy competition by prohibiting unfair practices by which fair and honest competition is destroyed or prevented.
