New-car dealerships have sold “hundreds” of cars without completing mandatory recall work at the time of sale, ABC News reported during an investigative segment today on “Good Morning America.”

The segment used a hidden camera at a Chevrolet dealership in New Jersey that sold a new vehicle that had been recalled but had not been fixed. “Good Morning America” has an average audience of about 6 million viewers a day, according to Nielsen figures.
