First, usually in contract law, an advertisement is an invitation used to draw the general public to make an offer on a particular item. After seeing the advertisement, the customer may or may not accept the invitation and it has no binding on the customer to purchase the products advertized. Since the advertisement doesn’t represent an offer, then a contract between the two parties doesn’t exist. Accordingly, an advertisement doesn’t assure of a guaranteed transaction. Second, there are no laws that require a car dealer to be responsible for the means or ways as a buyer of reaching his or her place of business. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is responsible for regulating false and misleading advertising and entrusted to protect consumers from what would be considered “bait and switch” (Halbert & Ingulli, 2009). However, in this case, the fact that Betty drove three hours in one-hundred degree heat is not regulated by the FTC laws.
