A2C2 Calls on eBay to Halt the Sale of Airbags on Its Site

The Automotive Anti-Counterfeiting Council (A2C2) has called on eBay to immediately halt the sale of airbags and airbag components on eBay.com, saying that the move is the only effective way to prevent the sale of dangerous counterfeit airbags on the site.

A2C2 said it has “engaged directly” with eBay executives about the subject since 2017. Although several other e-commerce platforms have agreed to prohibit the sale of airbags and airbag components to address the growing problem, eBay has not followed suit, the nonprofit association said in a news release.

Flood-Damaged Autos Driving Into Used-Car Market, Consumer Group Warns

Thousands of cars and trucks have been damaged by major floods this year and that makes it even more important for today's used-car buyers to scrutinize potential purchases, consumer advocacy groups warn.

Anyone kicking the tires on a used car for sale should scan the vehicle inside and out for flood damage, the U.S. Public Interest Research Group said Thursday. If there's a car you're seriously considering, sniff around the interior for the smell of mold, look for moisture build up in the headlights and even have the vehicle inspected by a professional before making a deal, the group said.

California to Institute Stronger Safety Inspections for Total Loss Vehicles After Repair

California Gov. Gavin Newsom has signed into law AB 471, legislation that, among other things, will institute more stringent safety inspections for total loss vehicles that have been repaired and offered for sale.

The legislation, which was strongly supported by the California Autobody Association (CAA) and 10 other industry groups, will also make it easier for consumers to be informed about repair shops’ educational and training certifications; create a panel to hear informal appeals of citations issued against repair dealers; and set up a “traffic school” model for dealing with minor record keeping violations, preventing disclosure of the violations on the internet while requiring the shop to take remedial training.

What Car Was a Good Idea but Was Executed Poorly?

A lot of production models that either come from a good idea, or start their design phase as a Good Car, end up falling short of their promise. Even if cars start with a clear answer to a problem, the follow-through can falter. What car do you think was actually a good idea, but was executed poorly?

High Used-Car Prices Are the New Normal, Maybe for Years

There’s no obvious reason right now, to expect high used-car prices to moderate significantly any time soon, probably not through the first quarter of 2022, and it could be 2025 or even later before used-vehicle supply and demand return to normal, according to Cox Automotive.
