PHOENIX – Attorney General Mark Brnovich today announced there are still restitution funds available for certain Arizonans who purchased cars from Phoenix auto dealer ABC Nissan. The unclaimed funds are the result of a consumer settlement with the Arizona Attorney General's Office.
Brnovich is asking for assistance from the media and the public to help get the message out that $130,000 in funds are available to compensate Arizona consumers as part of a June 2018 settlement between the Attorney General’s Office and ABC Nissan.
Under the settlement resolving the complaint, ABC Nissan will pay Arizona consumers a total of up to $130,000 in restitution. The settlement notes that the auto dealer reformed its practices after becoming aware of the Attorney General’s investigation.
The State’s complaint alleged ABC Nissan previously engaged in false advertising practices, including Internet advertising that listed vehicles at prices that included all possible rebates, and excluded mandatory dealer “add-ons” that had already been applied to the vehicles. The State also alleged that ABC Nissan previously misrepresented some consumers’ financial information on loan applications in order to obtain financing for vehicle purchases.
