    BBB Auto LineThe largest and most effective auto warranty dispute resolution program in the US to help build trust and confidence in the automotive marketplace. Most auto companies offer BBB AUTO LINE to their customers as a consumer help resource. BBB AUTO LINE proceedings are informal. In fact, most cases can be resolved through telephone discussions facilitated by BBB staff. Disputes not resolved by agreement may proceed to arbitration. Arbitration is an informal hearing at which the consumer and manufacturer's representative present their views of a dispute to a neutral third party, the arbitrator, who will decide how the dispute will be resolved.
