Pep Boys Reaches $5 Million Settlement with EPA

Pep Boys agreed to a $5 million settlement with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Monday over alleged Clean Air Act violations.

The car repair chain imported at least 241,000 vehicles and generators manufactured in China that did not meet U.S. environmental standards between 2004 and 2009, according to the complaint. Pep Boys supplier Baja Inc. is also settling with the EPA. When combined, these become the largest vehicle importation settlement ever brought under the Clean Air Act.
