Impact: 
There are over 15 states who do not allow "As Is" because dealers take advatange of consumers with this law. Dealers are injuring people with there misrepresntation of there used cars and getting away with it due to this law. We need a change ! Why should consumers who work hard for there money be taken advatage of , when dealers withhold important facts there are aware of? WHY ARE THEY PROTECTED ?

Having the wrong size tires , even after the service department tells the sales associate the tires are not recommended for that car.

Additional Information

Additional Description: 
I bought a car that had issues during the test drive it was shaking and I was told it would be taken care of, during the signing of the contracts I refused to sign the 'AS IS " until I was sure the shaking was taken care of, I was told at this time it was on the lift and it was being taken care of and not to worry they promised to take care of it , I stated I do not want to buy it if it is still shaking. I signed the 'AS IS ' because I was reassured it would be resolved. I took the car 2 weeks later and noticed it was still shaking, took the car back and they stated there was nothing wrong with the car and it is just the way it drives, I called the sales associate several times stating it was stil shaking, we brought it again back to the dealer and again we where told nothing was wrong with it.
