Investigation Shows GSA Auctions Vehicles With Open Recalls

Fox News reports an investigation by Circa news revealed that car auctions performed by the General Services Administration of decommissioned government vehicles included those with “open recalls – some with ‘disturbing and potentially dangerous defects.’” According to Fox, the “more common problems” included “vehicles with steering problems and airbag flaws that, if deployed, could shoot metal fragments at the driver.” Of the 2,037 GSA cars for sale in August. “427 had open recalls.” A GSA spokesperson said the agency “is in full compliance with the laws and regulations regarding auto auctions” because it “notifies all auction bidders and successful buyers that there may be outstanding recalls on the sale vehicle, and to contact either their local dealership or use the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) website to check the vehicle’s recall status.”

From the news 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...)
