CarMax -- the largest retailer of used cars in the nation -- continues to sell unsafe recalled vehicles, deceptively advertised as having passed a rigorous "125+ point inspection" and qualifying to be sold as "CarMax Quality Certified" vehicles, without bothering to get the lethal safety defects repaired first.
Bad brakes? So what.
Loss of steering? Oh, well.
Catching on fire? Big deal.
Exposing their customers and all who share the roads to being maimed and killed? Not something they care about.
We worked with ABC's 20/20 on their excellent undercover investigative report, which they courageously went ahead and broadcast, despite enormous pressure from CarMax. While the network didn't post the report on their website, they did provide CARS with a DVD. We've posted an excerpt on our YouTube channel and have been promoting it. It has now received over 475,000 views.
If you agree these incredibly reckless practices should be exposed, and the public should be warned -- and CarMax should be pressured to stop engaging in these illegal practices -- please share the link around:
