How Used Cars Slip Past Recall Safeguards

Following another death linked to the defective Takata airbag inflators, the New York Times writes that the accident “has highlighted a group of drivers especially vulnerable to dangerous vehicles: second, third or even fourth owners, who purchased their vehicles in transactions far removed from the protections offered to buyers of new cars.” The Times explains that there “is no explicit federal requirement that sellers of used cars fix problems related to safety recalls, or even disclose the recalls, the way new-car dealers must.” In a more than 1,500-word expose, the Times takes a look at the used car industry, surveys industry experts, and recounts the recent and tragic death of Delia Robles.

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...)
