Did you know that there are no laws requiring used car dealerships to inform customers of a recall? There aren’t even laws requiring potential customers be warned before purchasing a car the dealership knows has already been recalled. This means unsuspecting consumers can actually go onto a used car lot and purchase a vehicle with known, potentially deadly defects – and the dealership doesn’t have to say a word about it.
Recalls from all major auto manufacturers have been widely reported in recent months. Many of these defective vehicles have already caused serious injury and death. However, “widely reported” does not mean “known by all” and thousands of people may be placed at risk by unscrupulous car dealers who know there is no law requiring disclosure.
