CarMax, the nation’s largest retailer of used cars, claims all its vehicles must pass a rigorous “125 point inspection.” It also advertises that all its cars are so-called “CarMax Quality Certified.”
But instead of living up to its hype, CarMax is selling LOTS of recalled cars with lethal safety defects. CarMax has a gambling addiction. It continues to play “recalled car roulette” with its customers’ lives.
Among the defects on cars waiting for sale on CarMax’s lots:
- sticking accelerator pedals
- catching on fire
- hoods that fly up in traffic
- faulty brakes
- steering loss
- stalling in traffic
- seat belts that fall apart in a crash
- air bags that explode with excessive force and cause blindness or death
An ABC 20/20 undercover investigation found unrepaired recalled vehicles for sale on CarMax’s lot in Hartford, Connecticut. CarMax’s excuse? It can’t be bothered waiting for the FREE repairs.
