Hertz asking feds to regulate rental industry

February 21, 2012 5:04:28 PM PST
Believe it or not, cars under recall do not have to be fixed before being rented.

However, Hertz has agreed to work with safety advocates to try and change that. The nation's second-largest rental car company is asking for government regulation.

Manufacturers and new car dealers are required by federal law to fix recalled vehicles before selling them, but not rental agencies.

Hertz already has a company policy of not selling recalled cars until they are fixed.
