Don’t Buy a Lemon from Chicago

Did you know that Illinois doesn’t make car accident reports public? So if you Carfax a used car from there, you won’t know it’s already been around the block. Efforts to introduce legislation to change this have failed.

Apparently, the rationale for defeating the measure was that some of the reports might possibly contain errors. Therefore, no reports should be released.

Car dealerships are said to have lobbied against the bill.
