Senate Could Destroy Your Automobile’s Trade-In Value

The Senate may vote quickly on an amendment by Democratic senator Cock Blumenthal that would make it prohibited for dealers to offer any automobile with an open recall. That may sound excellent, however there’s a huge issue: lots of recalls are for items as minor as a printing error in the owner’s manual, when a part is merely not available, there’s absolutely nothing you can do about it.
