In the Matter of CarMax, Inc., File No. 1423202
I drive a light commercial vehicle, and am on the road a lot. It concerns me that vehicles I share lanes with may not be properly maintained, or are in some way unsafe to operate. That affects not only the car's owner or operator, it is a factor for all other drivers nearby. Purposely allowing vehicles with known defects to be sold and driven flies in the face of all reason. CarMax has to be held to the standard that 1. All known defects are repaired prior to resale. or 2. Potential purchasers must be informed of the unrepaired recalls. 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.
