The Federal Trade Commission recently investigated General Motors for selling vehicles with open safety recalls as "certified preowned." Unfortunately, this problem is not limited just to General Motors or open recalls. While car manufacturers advertise that certified preowned vehicles give you peace of mind and have been thoroughly inspected, I have seen far too many instances from all car manufacturers of certified preowned vehicles sold with serious safety, mechanical or title problems. Some problems with my clients' manufacturer certified preowned vehicles have included transmission and engine failures, engine shutting off while driving, water leaks and odometer rollback.
