Sen. Juan Vargas D-San Diego introduced legislation on Monday to fix a new law that will require dealers to provide consumers with vehicle history reports starting on July 1.
Senate Bill 990 aims to change the requirements under legislation passed last year, which requires that dealers provide a government report, known as the National Motor Vehicle Titling Information System, to consumers who purchased a used car.
Citing a study conducted by auto industry experts, Vargas said the NMVTIS doesn’t track detailed vehicle history events, such as air bag deployment, open recalls and structural or frame damage. His legislation will allow dealers to source vehicle history reports from companies like Carfax.
