Is it legal to advertise a car, same make, same vin #, at two seperate lots in two seperate States?

Asked by Jul 14, 2015 at 03:47 PM about the 2005 Audi A4 1.8T Cabriolet

Question type: General

i recently found an ad on CarGurus. I
sent message by email to talk w
someone re" this car. Never replied
back to me. Husband calls the lot in
Dallas Ga., he was told the car was
transferred to lot in Fla., I kept
looking at your site, for cars. I run
across an ad for same vehicle, turns
out both lots are advertising same
car, same vin for sale at both
locations at same time. Both lots are
running ad on CarGurus for the same
car for sale in 2 states, ad says come
on in & see it. How can 1 car be for
sale in 2 states, at same time, is this
legal?

I believe that the car has to be able to be viewed at the advertised location otherwise it could be viewed as the 'ole bait and switch routine. Or it could be an honest mistake. Maybe it truly was at one lot but not selling. So they figured they'd give it a go at their other location. HTH. -Jim
