A car dealer is selling second-hat cars to car owners who want to get their car repaired.
But the owners say they can’t afford it and have to wait months for repairs.
“They come in and they say ‘I’m going to fix my car for free, but you’ll have to pay me $15,000 and then it’ll take about a year and a half,'” said Mike Bresler.
“And that’s the only reason why they’re buying them.”
“And they’re making a lot of money for a lot less money than the car they’re fixing,” said Bresling.
“I would rather not pay $15 a week for my car.
It’s a waste of my money.””
I think if you’re going to do it, it’s best for you to buy it second-happens,” said Steve Hirsch.
“You know, you’re doing what’s right for your family, and you’re making sure that it’s being done right.”
The cars are manufactured by the Idaho State Vehicle Importers Association (ISVA) in Boise.
But it’s not only the dealerships that are taking advantage of the loophole.
In the meantime, Idaho’s legislature is looking into the problem.
The state has proposed a bill that would ban the practice.
It would also require car dealers to report repairs to the state.
