From vehicle safety to fuel efficiency, from transportation corridors to transportation policy, Public Citizen is working to ensure our vehicles and their path ways meet necessary standards. As Americans demand safer vehicles, demands are also being made to ensure that vehicles coming across the border from Mexico (Mexican Domiciled Trucks) meet safety requirements. to keep dangerous trucks off our highways. 

The Auto Safety Group has been a part of Public Citizen since 1971. The Washington based group works to improve highway safety by lobbying Congress to pass critical legislation, monitoring the Department of Transportation to be sure it carries out the will of Congress, conducting public awareness campaigns on critical issues, and participating in lawsuits to force government action when necessary.

As we work to protect consumers from dangerous automobiles, we also fighting to protect consumers from the dangers associated with buying a vehicle and consumer scams.

Car-dealer fraud is plaguing our country. The tactics being used are so sly that even informed consumers who do their homework are being taken for hundreds, and often thousands, of dollars.

Public Citizen does not believe that graft is necessary for auto dealers, as an industry, to remain economically viable. We also do not belive that that all -- or even most -- dealerships are corrupt. Dealers should work with law enforcement to root out corruption where it exists and should commit to creating a transparent, accountable and consumer-friendly sales and financing process.

We have developed a website, for you to learn more about these scams. you can also share your story and comments on auto fraud. Visit www.autodealerscam.org for more details!
