NACA joins groups on a comment letter in response to the Federal Trade Commission's (FTC) proposed settlements with CarMax, Asbury Automotive Group, and West-Herr Automotive Group. "[D]espite the FTC’s acknowledgment of the imminent hazards that can be posed by unrepaired recalled vehicles, the proposed agreements would allow the respondent car dealers to advertise unsafe, unrepaired, defective recalled used cars with serious safety defects that have killed and injured people as “safe,” “repaired for safety issues,” or “subject to a rigorous inspection,” without repairing the safety defects."
