Local Honda dealer in Metro ATL requiring arbitration document or they will not sell the car. Prevents buyer from being part of a lawsuit against the dealer, but settling for arbitration instead. Anyone else run into that? Is it a trend?

Unless that is some GA or local law, run away.

Standard thing with the last few new cars I've purchased. I believe it's also an automatic agreement with the manufacturer to agree to arbitration. Likely the dealer is following suit with their own arbitration agreement. I had to sign one today when purchasing my Passport. No big deal as I have never needed to sue anyone and don't plan to in the future.

Yeah, In California you sign stuff saying you acknowledge there is NO return policy and a few other bs things, I'm sure every state has lawyers looking out for the Manufacturers..

Wow, that is crazy. I guess that is a one huge plus for Washington State as we do not have this type of junk to sign when buying a new car.

Thanks for the input. I have no problem with arbitration unless there is a class action law suit, which normally leaves plaintiffs with nothing after atty. fees. I am not a lawyer but that is how I understand it.
