Colorado and Wisconsin Ban TrueCar
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation, Division of Motor Vehicles has sent a letter, dated December 14, to TrueCar informing them that their business model violates Wisconsin law. The department instructed TrueCar to inform all of the Wisconsin dealers participating in TrueCar’s program that the program is not in compliance with Wisconsin law and either discontinue operations in Wisconsin or change their program. The department identified the method of payment (the $299-$399 per sale) as an illegal commission and a bird dog fee.
