FTC crackdown on a Nissan dealership results in 8 felony charges:

Ex-dealership staffers face prison

The FTC has taken 252 actions against dealerships the past year alone for deceptive marketing, odometer fraud and financial (loan) fraud. So much for the dealership argument that they are needed to protect consumers from the manufacturers.

I hope Tesla uses these statistics in their lobbying efforts in the "Tesla hostile" states.

This franchise should be taken away by Nissan USA. No word from NADA?
We could probably write the reply. Key talking points:
* Dealers first job is consumer protection
* We commend swift action to remove the few bad apples that detract from our core mission
* We commend the dealer and Nissan for providing full cooperation to apprehend these individuals

...which is actually a fair statement (well the first is fluff, but yeah).

Sounds like the TSA's SOP when the weekly news article comes out about a TSA agent stealing something or feeling someone up or peddling in illegal pornography.
