America's largest auto retailer sells customers used defective cars, a report says

AutoNation, America’s largest car retailer, has sold customers used vehicles with unrepaired defects, according to a new report from the US PIRG Education Fund and the Consumers for Auto Reliability and Safety Foundation.

Customers shouldn’t have to be concerned about vehicles purchased at licensed dealerships, said Rosemary Shahan, president of Consumers for Auto Reliability and Safety, especially since most repairs should be feasible. “You shouldn’t have to worry that they’re deliberately selling you a car they know has a killer safety recall defect.”

2. They also scam people into subprime loans

These companies are predatory and wrong. The subprime used car business here in Michigan is disgusting, t.hey pressure people into loans they can;t afford for cars that aren't worth close to what they charge for them. And they get their hooks into people as soon as they walk in the door and make them think a 20% interest rate is the best they can do
