Four California car dealers accused of deception settle with FTC

I cant sell a car to two different people for the same price, he said. Its a cushion because you cant advertise a car only for people with an excellent profile.

I wonder if it would be possible to run a cash-only used car lot?  Then it would be easy to charge two customers the same price for the car.  Might be a limited market but I bet you could keep costs down.  Even if someone wanted financing, they could always go to a bank themselves and bring in a check.

Or they could just advertise the cash price of the cars, instead of garbage like "Only $XXX per month" (for an unspecified number of months).
