Description

KSHB-TV conducted an investigation into allegations of fraud, misrepresentation, and criminal negligence at a used car dealership in Kansas City, Mo. KSHB-TV learned that the dealership sold unsafe vehicles classified as junk-salvage to unsuspecting customers who thought they were buying safe, reliable transportation. The dealer named in the report also conspired with another dealer to have the unsafe junk-salvage cars pass safety inspections in order to allow them to be licensed. (Sept. 20 & 21, 1995)
