Working Cars for Working Families is a project of the National Consumer Law Center created to ensure that working families can get, keep, and use a reliable car at fair terms. We work with a variety of organizations, each with its own focus, but all recognizing the importance of cars to the success of families. We strive to improve public policy, practices, and understanding. We work in variety of areas such as:

  • Improving consumer protection to stop abuses in car sales and finance and bring fairness and transparency to the marketplace.
  • Promoting non-profits that provide struggling families with cars or financing or both at subsidized rates.
  • Improving data collection and analysis to better understand the benefits of and challenges to car ownership for working families.
