Report Takes Aim at National Auto Dealership Chain

FREMONT - Two California-based purchaser guard dog gatherings are getting out a significant car business chain for selling utilized vehicles with open reviews, a training customer supporters call "hazardous". 

On Tuesday, the California Public Interest Research Group (CALPIRG), and Consumers for Automotive Reliability and Safety (CARS) discharged the discoveries of their examination on trade-in vehicle deals. The report targets AutoNation, one of the biggest car vendor bunches in the U.S., for what analysts call the clearance of "...recalled utilized vehicles that contain perilous wellbeing deserts." 

CALPIRG and CARS scientists state they studied in excess of 2,400 trade-in vehicles recorded available to be purchased at 28 AutoNation businesses across the country. Their report claims 1 of every 9 of those vehicles had unrepaired security reviews. 

"Those vehicles are conceivably risky to the individuals who get them, their travelers, and every other person out and about," the creators composed. "Vehicles with deformities subject to wellbeing reviews - including failing Takata airbags and General Motors start switches - have been answerable for a great many wounds and passings." 

The discoveries are like those in a NBC Bay Area examination prior this year. Our buyer group studied in excess of 1,000 trade-in vehicles available to be purchased, and recognized in excess of 100 unrepaired wellbeing reviews. 

At a news gathering outside AutoNation Honda in Fremont, CALPIRG Campaign Associate Claudia Deeg contrasted the closeout of trade-in vehicles and open reviews to selling conceivably risky purchaser items. 

"We accept that in case you're not permitted to sell a toy that could harm your child, or a microwave that can detonate when you use it, try not to be permitted to sell a vehicle that could slaughter you on your ride home from the business." 

The CALPIRG and CARS report condemned AutoNation specifically for sponsorship off its guarantee in 2015 to quit selling utilized autos with open reviews. AutoNation turned around that arrangement in late 2016. 

In a composed proclamation gave to NBC Bay Area, AutoNation pushed back on the idea of any bad behavior by its vendors, and asserted CALPIRG's national accomplice U.S. PIRG neglected to contact AutoNation about its investigation. 

"AutoNation is in full consistence with all laws and guidelines in regards to reviews and with all review mandates gave by the vehicle makers," the announcement read. "In addition, the US PIRG report doesn't precisely portray the purchasing procedure at AutoNation businesses. The gatherings answerable for the report didn't endeavor to completely audit the buying procedure at any of AutoNation's 200+ areas the nation over. Nor did they connect with AutoNation to acquire data about our arrangements and systems encompassing reviews." 

AutoNation likewise gave NBC Bay Area a review revelation structure that all purchasers must sign before finishing a buy. The understanding gives purchasers "the chance to timetable or complete review fixes before buy." 

Government law bans the closeout of new autos with open wellbeing reviews, yet not utilized vehicles. An ongoing government bill was planned for forbidding reviewed utilized vehicle deals across the country. It seems, by all accounts, to be slowed down in the U.S. Senate. 

To locate any open reviews on a vehicle you claim or are thinking about purchasing, enter the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) at SaferCar.gov. The VIN is commonly situated on the driver's side dashboard.
