Utah Dealer Franchise Laws Give Customers the Right to Choose:

As a matter of principle, you have the right to negotiate. You have the right to seek a better deal. And you have the right to choose the financing option that’s best for you. By doing away with Dealer Franchise Laws, the legislature would in effect: take away your right to negotiate, your right to a good deal, your right to benefit. When you’re paying $30,000+ for a car and stretching to do it, you should have every possible financial advantage. No government institution should deny you that. That’s not what government is supposed to do.
