Many Recalled Cars Being Sold in Montana

Posted: Updated:

Its been national news that millions of General Motors cars have been recalled for dangerous defects such as faulty ignitions and airbags.

Now Chrysler has announced that they are recalling almost 900,000 SUV's such as the Jeep Cherokee and Dodge Durango for failing brakes.

But did you know that many of these recalled cars are being sold in Montana?

Sellers of used cars are not required to tell buyers about open recalls, but this expert from Carfax tells you how to save yourself from a case of buyers remorse.

"If you are buying a used car right now, put recalls at the top of your list. There are so many cars out there with unfixed recalls. We estimate there are about one of out eight cars in the state of Montana that have an unfixed recall online," said Chris Basso, the Public Relations manager at Carfax.

With so many un serviced recalled cars available, what can a buyer do to make sure they are purchasing a safe car?

"We always tell people to do three things when buying a used car. Take it for a test drive. Request a Carfax report from the dealer,  or you can get it online at carfax.com. Have a mechanic completely look over the car. They might be able to find problems you didn't know about," Basso adds.

Be sure you do your research before buying the car of your dreams.
