Renton Honda Complaint - Renton Honda - ADVERTISING FRAUD
RENTON, WASHINGTON -- We got what appeared to be an "official" mailing from the NHTSA directing us to go only to Renton Honda for this "Cash For Clunkers" program.
The mailing is stamped with the NHTSA and CARS logos on the front, and is in the form-factor of what looks like an "official" government document. We saw through this scam right away and my wife actually called the Seattle office of the NHTSA - to which we heard that they were investigating Renton Honda about this already.
You have to wonder how many people might get fooled by what looks like the NHTSA "directing" customers to Renton Honda.
Read for yourself and decide for yourself if this isn't total fraud.
The text reads as follows:
