“Labeling” Pre-Owned Cars

The Federal Trade Commission has lowered its rules on labeling used cars as “certified pre-owned.” Used cars formerly under recall, and without the proper repairs from that recall, can be sold as certified pre-owned. There are a few dealers who have refused to sell any recalled vehicles to their customers. However, some dealers, like Ford, are selling recalled vehicles that have been deemed “certified pre-owned,” but are not advertising them as safe vehicles.

Do you think that this practice of selling certified vehicles is ok? Let us know in the comments below.
