Reader's Digest investigates the boom in the secondhand automobile market and the many unseen dangers that Americans face in buying automobiles used. The Digest estimates that of the 45 million used automobiles sold each year, one out of every nine has "hidden damage or potentially hazardous wear." Of the problems faced by used auto owners most common were rolled back odometers, concealed flood damage on air bags and brakes, and previously totaled autos being rebuilt and put back on the road. The Digest offers a checklist of used automobile warning signs and tips for effective purchasing.
