Automobile Sales

  • Link fights to protect car buyers

    link usedcarSPRINGFIELD—Consumers soon could receive more warranty protection when buying a used car in Illinois thanks to legislation sponsored by State Senator Terry Link (D-Vernon Hills).

    Under House Bill 4377, used automobile sales would include an implied warranty that would last for 15 days after the purchase or until 500 miles are driven, whichever comes first. The implied warranty would allow a buyer to give notice of a breach of warranty to the seller to allow for a remedy.
