The Pennsylvania Attorney General’s Office announced a $1 million multi-state settlement with CarMax Auto Superstores on Dec. 1.

The decision that CarMax will also be required to disclose any open recalls related to the safety of used vehicles.

In a statement, Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro said that the investigation, meant to protect consumers before buying used cars, had been launched with 35 other Attorneys General.

According to the AG’s Office, CarMax will use the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration’s vehicle identification number tool to disclose safety-related information.
