In the Matter of General Motors LLC, File Number 152-3101
ALL used car dealers that sell or trade used cars SHOULD HAVE to have ALL repairs done, safety recalls included, REGARDLESS of 'their safety inspections'. If there is a problem, the dealership OR RENTAL COMPANY should be REQUIRED to fix it before offering it for sale or for rental. Unsafe cars being allowed for sell or rental is the worst thing that could be done. When people go to buy or rent a car, they expect it to be SAFE & well maintained--why else would it be fore sale or rental?!? PLEASE stay firm & determined to hold ALL dealerships & rental companies, regardless of the number of cars they have on their lots or loaner cars that they maintain, to keep their vehicles fixed & safe. ALSO, ALL CAR MAKERS should, the MOMENT they know about problems, issue a recall & get moving to make & keep the fixed parts coming in so that all the vehicles sold/rented can be repaired. They need to be held accountable too. I wouldn't be happy about having a recall on a car, but I would be more likely to buy another car from that maker (Chevy, Dodge, Hyundai, etc) if they issued the parts, an apology & a quick & immediate fix. Those that are honest & forthcoming can be trusted. The others can't & should be held responsible. They are looking at the monetary bottom line, when the line that they should be looking at is the lives they're actions take & the lives they change with that loss. Life SHOULD ALWAYS come before money; otherwise we're just a bunch of animals trying to stay at the top of the food chain. Don't disappoint the American public by letting this slide by or by letting certain things go. Let the big dealers/rental companies & auto makers know that the public isn't going to stand around & let this go, continue to let them be greedy, heartless pricks. Make them tow the line. Thank you!
