Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal, who’s pushing legislation to outlaw the sales of used cars with unrepaired defects, said disclosure isn’t enough.
“Disclosure is really no substitute for repair,” Blumenthal said. “The dealers who say disclosure is a substitute for repairs ignore the plain fact that unsafe vehicles are a menace. Not only to passengers and drivers, but to other motorists.”
AutoNation said it fully complies with all laws and regulations regarding recalls and said any suggestion that it is “knowingly or deliberately seeking to mislead consumers is entirely unfounded.”
