USA: Legal settlement about recalled used cars challenged

A legal settlement reached on 8 December last year between the Federal Trade Commission and GM and two used-car dealers is being challenged by consumer rights activists in court in Washington DC. The settlement is alleged to allow cars to be sold as 'safe' or 'certified' even if it has defective air bags, faulty ignition switches or other potentially lethal problems, provided the used car dealer discloses that the vehicle may be subject to a pending safety recall.

The papers filed at the Federal Court by Consumers for Auto Reliability and Safety, Center for Auto Safety and U.S. Public Interest Research Group, Inc., are available from here. See also the article on the website, here.
