CarMax Endangers Lives in Massachusetts
CarMax, the nation's largest retailer of used cars, is selling recalled vehicles with dangerous and potentially lethal safety defects to Massachusetts car buyers. Those unsafe vehicles are hazardous not only to the people who buy them, but to the cars’ passengers and everyone else who shares the roads and adjacent areas, including sidewalks, driveways and parking lots.
The Consumers for Auto Reliability and Safety (CARS) Foundation and MASSPIRG Education Fund reached this conclusion based on recent research into CarMax's sales practices in Massachusetts, compiling data from the CarMax store in North Attleboro. This is especially troubling because CarMax is expanding in the state, and is scheduled to open three new stores in the South Shore and Greater Boston area, competing with other dealers in the area who have more responsible safety policies.
