    I grazed over this article to see if it mentioned anything about RECALLS when looking for a used car. I believe that recalls are only issued if a safety concern is involved in the defect of the vehicle. CARMAX ....17% of the vehicles they had for sale (in one report) had SAFETY RECALLS. Some were very serious. Serious enough that one wouldn't buy the car if they knew. Fire, Brake Failure, etc. CARMAX salespeople downplayed the recalls and the only time the recalls were mentioned to the buyer specifically (in a disclosure statement) was after the purchase was made. Buyer beware. I mention CARMAX for two reasons. They advertise as though the cars they sell are pre-inspected and safe. When the reporter asked about the recalls, the salespeople consistently downplayed the dangers. http://www.wcvb.com/news/used-cars-with-open-safety-recalls-for-sale/36960624

    The author doesn't mention auto auctions which is primarily what I'm interested in.
