Following a public comment period, the Federal Trade Commission has approved final consent orders against two Las Vegas auto dealers that misrepresented the cost of cars in advertising.

In June 2015, TC Leadership LP, doing business as Planet Hyundai, and JS Autoworld Inc., d/b/a Planet Nissan, agreed to settle FTC charges that their ads included heavily discounted prices that were not generally available to consumers.

The consent orders prohibit the dealers from misrepresenting the cost of financing or leasing a vehicle, stating the amount due at signing without disclosing certain lease terms, and failing to comply with Regulation M and the Consumer Leasing Act, and Regulation Z and the Truth in Lending Act.
