BUFFALO, N.Y. -- A dozen Buffalo-area used car dealerships are among more than a hundred statewide to agree to settlements with New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman over selling vehicles under active recall.
Schneiderman's office said the dealerships did not disclose to customers that the vehicles being sold had active recalls.
"The safety recalls we uncovered were serious and potentially deadly," Schneiderman said.
He commended the dealerships that signed the settlements, calling them "good corporate citizens". Those dealerships will now follow a set up guidelines to inform customers about pending recalls, among other requirements.
