Aug. 13, 2010 - PRLog -- CONNECTICUT -- The new U.S. consumer financial protection agency will begin trying to simplify auto loan forms for consumers over the next few months, a Treasury Department spokesman said today.

Key Hyundai, a long standing used car dealer in CT, hopes that any legislation that comes about helps CT used car buyers.  “One of the great services that we offer our Milford used car buyers is the ability to facilitate car financing for used cars on the spot at competitive rates,” says Jill Merriam, owner of Key Hyundai, one of CT’s used car dealer.

Although Connecticut used car buyers have the ability to buy a used car from many places, including a friend, Craigslist, or a smaller used car lot, car dealers offer a great benefit because of their ability to finance used cars in CT.  According to Jill Merriam of Key Hyundai, CT car dealers typically have about 20 different banks that they can use to get a car loan for CT used car buyers.  “We’ve been able to help used car buyers from across CT secure car loans at competitive rates whether they have stellar credit or bad credit.  Just last week, we were able to help many Milford used car buyers, Manchester used car buyers and even some used car buyers from New Haven and Hartford,” says Ms. Merriam of Key Hyundai.

A banking group questioned whether the new agency would be able to make meaningful simplifications that would help auto consumers.

“What are they trying to get at?” said Mark Pregmon, chair of the auto finance committee at the Consumer Bankers Association. “Making the form shorter and easier to read? That would be really great. But people already realize what they’re signing up for.”

Pregmon said the disclosure form stretches as long as 20-plus pages in California as a result of federal, state and bank requirements. Banks agree most forms are overly complex but aren’t sure what to do about them in the face of government requirements, he said.  Fortunately, Connecticut does not have the same onerous requirements and all the information is on one form.  This allows Connecticut used car buyers to purchase a car and get a car loan in only a few hours.

The new agency is to oversee consumer financial products, including dealer-assisted auto financing. Banks that provide the loans fall under the agency’s purview, though dealers are exempt.

Bailey Wood, a spokesman for the National Automobile Dealers Association, said the group “will work aggressively to ensure that any regulatory changes implementing the financial reform bill, including those which seek to ‘simplify’ loan disclosure requirements, do not limit a customer’s ability to finance a vehicle at affordable rates.”
