Stop CarMax from selling unsafe, recalled cars to consumers.
CarMax is the largest retailer of used cars in the country. CarMax advertises that all its cars must pass a rigorous "125+-point inspection." But -- what they don't advertise is that they fail to get free safety recall repairs done on cars they sell to consumers.
CarMax is selling recalled cars with safety defects like catching on fire, brakes that fail, ignition switches that make the car die in traffic, axles that break, and faulty seat belts. All under a safety recall. None of them fixed. Just waiting for sale on a CarMax lot near you.
Think this should stop? Sign CARS' petition to CarMax:
Stop CarMax from selling unsafe, recalled cars to consumers
Buyer beware: NEVER trust that a dealer will have the safety recall repairs performed before selling you a car that is being recalled. Dealers are so eager to make a buck, fast, they are unwilling to delay sales long enough to get the safety recall repairs done -- for FREE.
Plus -- dealers are actively opposing legislation in Washington, DC and in California that would prohibit them from renting, selling, leasing, or loaning unsafe, recalled vehicles to consumers, unless the safety recall repairs have been performed first.

gets to pick the arbitrator who hears your case. Here's what happened to a car buyer in San Diego:
