Is it Legal to Sell a Used Car with an Open Recall?

There’s no law stating that a dealership can’t sell a used car with any open recalls that haven’t been fixed. However, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) prevents dealers from selling any unfixed new vehicles that have open recalls. You can buy a used car with an open recall, but it’s important you know what they are and make sure they’ve been completed before you finalize a purchase.
