Consumer group warns against buying used cars from CarMax

CarMax, the nation’s largest used car retailer, is in hot water following accusations for selling recalled cars, according to an official statement released by the Consumers for Auto Reliability and Safety.

In CARS’ latest press release, the group warns against buying used cars from CarMax. CARS alleges the company sold and “continues to sell unsafe, defective recalled cars.”

The group, or CARS in short, is an award-winning, non-profit organization advocating for automotive safety. It campaigns for the enactment of new safety laws to protect buyers of both new and used cars.

This includes the sale of “vehicles with dangerous Takata air bags that have been linked to 10 deaths and over 100 injuries.” The statement is a follow up to allegations from 2015, where CarMax was first accused of selling Takata-tainted vehicles.

If you are left searching for a used car, AutoNation provides plenty of options, thanks to its extensive network of hundreds of dealerships around the country.

More importantly, AutoNation does not sell recalled vehicles. In fact, AutoNation is the only major automotive retailer that guarantees all cars sold are recall-free.
