Unfortunately in our country delayed recalls or forced recalls is not a new concept. Auto accidents happen every day where drivers and passengers are needlessly injured or killed. In addition to this, some auto manufactures knowingly endanger consumers by putting defective products on the market or fail to remove defective automotive products from the market. They put profits over your safety.
General Motors (GM) is the latest vehicle manufacturer under scrutiny by safety regulators, a U.S. Attorney in Manhattan, and by U.S. House and Senate Committees for their delayed reporting and inaction.
The Center for Auto Safety released a new study referencing crash and fatality data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) Fatal Analysis Reporting System (FARS) and found that 303 deaths were reported when airbags failed to deploy in the 1.6 million compact cars recalled in February by General Motors. GM reported it only had 12 deaths in 34 crashes .
