In the Matter of CarMax, Inc., File No. 1423202
Do NOT allow CarMax to advertise that cars with unrepaired safety recalls are "safe" and "repaired for safety." People's lives are at stake. Not only car buyers, but also their passengers and others who share the roads. Safe means safe. A car is not safe when it still has unrepaired safety recall defects. This is not what buyers sign up for when buying a car from a dealer. A private sale with "as is" is a buyer beware scenario, but when a corporation whose reputation has been previously attached to a high standard of sale, it takes the onus of potential disaster away from them, and puts it on an unknowing buyer. Not ethical, reasonable, or fair.
