NY cracking down on deceptive advertising

Posted: Updated:

ALBANY, N.Y. – New York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman is cracking down on what he calls deceptive and misleading advertising at area auto dealers.

The Attorney General's office reached settlements with six Capital Region dealerships. A seventh was given a warning.

The six dealerships agreeing to reform their advertising practices and pay fines ranging from $7,500 to $15,000:

  • Albany Dodge, 770 Central Avenue, Albany
  • DeNooyer Chevrolet, 127 Wolf Road, Albany
  • DePaula Chevrolet, 785 Central Avenue, Albany
  • Goldstein Auto Group, Inc., 1671 Central Avenue, Albany
  • Lia Nissan, 1258 Central Avenue, Albany
  • Zappone Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram, 8556 State Route 22, Granville

Schneiderman said the dealerships promoted sales and lead prices that were deceptive because they reflected discounts on rebates that were not available to most customers.

The Attorney General's office said the dealerships agreed to reform their advertising practices.
