In the Matter of CarMax, Inc., File No. 1423202
We just traded in our 2004-model Lexus for a new vehicle. A primary reason for the decision was the fear that the Takata airbags pose, especially since we live in warm, humid Florida -- even though the vehicle has not been subject to a recall for the airbags. Imagine now buying our old car: It has been kept in the worst conditions for airbag-activator deterioration, and it is one of millions of vehicles from the most threatening period of airbag explosions. If this vehicle's airbag is then recalled, the potential buyer MUST be protected from buying a recalled vehicle which could potentially kill him! To do anything less would be unethical, and to do anything less must be illegal -- it's really just that simple.
