Petition to CarMax, Bill Nash, Katharine Kenny, Tom Folliard, William R. Tiefel (Chairman of the Board)

Stop selling unsafe, recalled cars to consumers.

CarMax is the largest used-car retailer in the U.S. You've probably seen their ads claiming that every car they sell passes a rigorous “125+-point inspection.” What they don't tell you is that CarMax fails to get the safety recall repairs done before they sell cars to consumers. Angela and Clarence Davidson bought a used 2010 Dodge Ram from CarMax in Irvine, CA. With children at home and in college, and a 5-year-old grandson, they wanted a safe car. Because the car was "CarMax Quality Certified," they believed it was safe. But right after they bought it, Chrysler told them the truck was recalled over a year before. The drive shaft was defective and likely to separate from the rear axle. CarMax had failed to get it repaired before selling it to the Davidsons. When they tried to return it, Carmax refused, and told them it was now their problem, not CarMax's. So they took it to a Chrysler dealer for the safety recall repairs and thought it was fixed. Days later, without warning, the truck fell apart on the freeway and caught on fire. The couple and their 12-year-old daughter barely escaped before the truck exploded into flames. It also caused a brush fire that closed down the freeway for about 4 hours. They owned their “CarMax Quality Certified” truck just 11 days. Then it almost killed them. How could this happen? CarMax sells ticking timebomb cars with safety defects like: catching on fire, brake failure, exploding air bags, axles that break, ignition switches that make cars die in traffic and disable the air bags, and other life-threatening safety defects. CarMax must stop selling unsafe, recalled cars to consumers without getting the free repairs done first.  CarMax says they're not authorized by auto manufacturers to perform safety recall repairs. So instead of taking recalled cars to other dealers who are authorized to do the repairs, for free, CarMax dumps the unsafe cars onto their customers. CarMax makes billions of dollars a year. They can afford to get recalled cars repaired for free or sell them to dealers who are authorized to perform safety recall repairs. They just don't care enough about their customers' safety to do the right thing. CarMax needs to hear from consumers. Tell CarMax to stop selling unsafe, recalled cars to consumers without getting the free repairs done first.

Petition to Amazon, Jeff Bezos

Remove All Donald Trump Products from Amazon.com

As a DREAMer and Latino American who recently graduated with a Bachelor's degree from American University, I am disgusted by the words of Donald Trump regarding immigrants, and particularly those from Mexico, which he called "rapists" and accused of generally being criminals. It's not lost on me that for him "Mexican" probably means any Latino, particularly undocumented immigrants. There was a time when Trump represented the American dream, when he published his book The Art of the Deal. I may not be considered an American by law, but Donald Trump and his words are not how I define American. We have come to this country to seek a better life, for some of us, like myself, it was our parents who brought us here to the "land of opportunity." Trump has been able to have his own success in this country, much of it which probably would have been impossible without the Latino community and many of these Mexican immigrants he seems to despise so much. They work in his hotels, they build and renovate his hotels, work on his golf courses, etc. and he reaps the benefits of their hard work, and then publicly, says these horrible things while seeking the presidency of this country. And while he may not be an immigrant, I don't think Mr. Trump has forgotten that the richest man in the world is a Mexican. For a man who prides himself on making good business deals, who wrote the book The Art of the Deal, he sure doesn't know how to deal with an America that has evolved to no longer accept vitriol like that spoken at his campaign announcement. Amazon has recently responded to the racist terror attack in Charleston that sparked a conversation about our nation's history with race and particularly with the Confederate flag by ceasing to sell Confederate flags on their site. Now I call on them to do the same with Donald Trump and cease to sell his many products on the site listed by Donald Trump and his companies. Trump no longer represents a sound business judgement, he represents societal regression and is a symbol for losing business by being held responsible for spreading hate. NBCUniversal and Univision have both recognized this by ending their TV deals with Trump and not showing Miss Universe or The Apprentice. I call on Amazon and its CEO, Jeff Bezos, whose own father immigrated to America as a young man, to also cease business with this man, and stop supporting his hate.

Petition to Pet Store Owners

Woof Woof Puppies Store Owners: Stop Selling Puppies

Woof Woof Puppies & Boutique located at 239 E Walled Lake Dr, Walled Lake, MI has been operating a puppy store in Southfield, Mi since 2011 ripping-off families with marketing gimmicks pushing “designer” overpriced, mixed-breed dogs. Buyers should beware of puppy peddlers promoting expensive teacup, micro and toy sized dogs.  SICK ANIMALS: The store has been selling sick animals and families are burdened with excessive vet costs and heartache. Follow our Message Board with more information about complaints. BAD BREEDERS: The store is not forthcoming and transparent about the breeders supplying the puppies. Potential buyers do not know where the puppies are coming from. There are no breeder disclosure laws, so families could unknowingly be contributing to cruelty. Reputable breeders never sell to pet stores. BAD BUSINESS: Customers are complaining about other bad business practices, such as accepting large non-refundable deposits and dramatically understating how big the puppies will grow. Even worse, the store has turned customers into “criminals”. Customers stated that the store called the police when they visited regarding a sick or dead puppy, rather than settling the dispute. This store simply can not be trusted. They even have excessive favorable online reviews which are very suspect. Puppy Mill Awareness of Southeast Michigan is a watchdog group working to end commercial breeding (“puppy mills”) and protect families from purchasing sick animals. Please sign this petition in support of our campaign to promote only humane business models. Tell the store owners to take a pledge not to sell puppies.
