Have just purchased a car from a dealership and I have discovered that one of the back seatbelts is broken, as well as it needing new brakes. Don't hey have to have fixed these before selling

Asked by Jan 29, 2016 at 09:27 PM about the 2008 Kia Rondo LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

This car was purchased in the State of Washington  
Are they able to sell a car with safety issues of
seatbelts, brakes needing to be replaced -- didn't
show up until a week later, and a windshield that
had a small hole at bottom right - barely visible -
that had now split and is traveling across my
windshield. Aren't there laws to prevent them from
selling a car that is not safe?

Check with your local Office of Consumer Affairs. Laws vary State to State. In NJ, where I am, a vehicle that's less than 10 model years old and has less than 100,000 miles on it has to pass State Inspection if purchased from any dealer. Of course now that only involves an emissions inspection. But years ago it was safety and emissions. My Sister once got a set of free tires that way. The inspector told her all 4 tires were worn past the State's minimum standard for tread depth. Hopefully your State has a similar law! HTH. -Jim
