Richard Blumenthal and Edward Markey are pushing legislation that would require used vehicles that contain recalled, unsafe parts to be repaired before being sold or leased.
Blumenthal said there are more than 64 million vehicles and trucks on the road with unrepaired safety recalls.
The Connecticut Democrat said Friday that whenever one of those vehicles changes hands without being repaired, safety problems are also passed along endangering drivers and passengers.
The senators said current law allows dealers to sell or lease vehicles with outstanding recalls despite the safety risks.
He said the bill will protect motorists from driving what he called “a ticking time bomb.”Markey, a fellow Democrat from Massachusetts, said whether a car is new or used, it must be safe when it leaves the lot.
Write-offs, pending finance and theft cautions on used vehicles continue to hight
as mentioned in Warnings on write-offs, outstanding finance and theft on used car checks are continuing to rise.
New data from used vehicle checker Mycarcheck.com has revealed that serious warnings have risen again to 30.8% of all checks in the first six months of 2017.
The Citroën C1 VTR was the highest risk of Mycarcheck’s 100 most-searched models for write-off, the Corsa SXi AC for finance and the Ford Fiesta Titanium for stolen.
“Given its unwanted appearances at the top of our write-off, finance and stolen charts, second hand Corsa buyers in particular need to know what they’re getting into.”With information from the police, DVLA, insurers and finance houses, Mycarcheck.com holds data on every vehicle on UK roads.
This follows an increase from 25.6% in 2015 to 28.5% in 2016.
