Car Dealers Oppose Measures to Require Repair of Recalled Vehicles Before They Can Be Sold

The New York Times reports that the U.S. currently has no law requiring the repair of used vehicles that have been recalled for safety issues before they can be rented or sold to the public, and “auto dealers and many manufacturers oppose efforts to require recalled used and rental cars to be immediately repaired.” Among those efforts is “a measure recently sent to Congress and a separate Senate bill that has languished since 2011.” Safety advocates and regulators say that without such a law, “consumers must take the rental car company’s or dealer’s word that the repairs were made, and have limited ability to seek redress without that assurance.”

From the new release of the American Association for Justice.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
