Report: Many Used Vehicles Sold by Licensed Dealers Have Open Recalls

NBC News reports, “Many used vehicles sold by licensed dealers have open recalls, according to a report released on Tuesday by the U.S. Public Interest Research Group (U.S. PIRG) Education Fund and Consumers for Auto Reliability and Safety (CARS).” Researchers “surveyed more than 2,400 used vehicles for sale online during July and August at 28 AutoNation locations in 16 metro areas around the country” and found: “more than one in nine…had unrepaired safety recalls,” “even some ‘certified’ pre-owned vehicles which had passed AutoNation’s ‘precise inspection process’ had unresolved recalls,” and “some of the recalled vehicles had a problem for which no remedy was yet available.” Former Acting NHTSA Administrator David Friedman said, “Recalls are never done for anything other than an unreasonable safety risk, period. … Anyone who claims a recall does not present a safety risk doesn’t understand the law or they’re trying to mislead the consumer.”

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...)
