Burzichelli Bill Prohibiting Rental and Sale of Motor Vehicles Subject to Safety Recalls Advances in the Assembly(TRENTON) - Legislation Assemblyman John J. Burzichelli sponsored to make it illegal for rental companies to rent, lease or sell unrepaired motor vehicles that are subject to safety recall was recently approved by an Assembly panel.
"Consumers have certain expectations when they rent a car - that it's safe and in good operating condition," said Burzichelli (D-Cumberland/Gloucester/Salem). "Unfortunately, since rental companies aren't required to pull recalled cars from their active fleets until the vehicles are fixed, consumers can instead be unwittingly subjected to a dangerous game of rental car Russian roulette."
Current federal law prohibits car dealers from both selling and leasing vehicles subject to a recall unless and until they are repaired.
