Alexander Brangman calls on Congress to make selling used vehicles with unrepaired recalls illegal and challenges AutoNation for going back on their word and now selling used vehicles with open safety recalls, like the one that killed his daughter, Jewel.
By Herb Weisbaum
Buying a used car is always a bit risky.
You don’t know how that vehicle was driven or maintained. It could have been damaged in an accident or by flood waters. Or it could be subject to an “open” recall — a safety problem identified by the manufacturer that has not been repaired.
Don’t assume the dealer has fixed the problem — or will even tell you about it, consumer advocates caution.
Sign the Petition
“NJ politicians received $500k from car dealers to pass laws allowing them to sell cars w/recalls like the Takata airbag that killed my daughter. Now, behaving like the law is already changed, a new report finds that AutoNation is selling recalled cars. Sign this petition-tell politicians and AutoNation to stop selling recalled cars.” – Alexander Brangman
