Are you behind the wheel of a recalled car?
Yahoo! is pointing out that The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recalled 51.3 million vehicles in the U.S. in 2015. NHTSA and automakers have come under harsh criticism on auto safety issues from Congress and others in the wake of General Motors’delayed recall of 2.6 million vehicles for ignition switch defects linked to 124 deaths.
Fifty one million (51,000,000) cars recalled in 2015. Which is actually down from 63,000,000 from the year before. Some vehicles were actually re-recalled. Bad ignitions and exploding airbags lead the list of features that were designed to protect, but in actuality, harm their occupants. Make sure you are keeping aware of recalls on your vehicle. Your life may depend on it.
Since then, the NHTSA has made a series of reforms and pledged to make more improvements. The agency has pressured automakers to recall more vehicles more quickly – and imposed record-setting fines. As a result, last year’s recall campaigns numbered the most in U.S. history.
