Examples of Auto Recalls
An automobile is only as good as the worst part in it. When a single defective
piece goes awry, it threatens to make the entire vehicle dangerous, and
often does. When enough people are hurt or inconvenienced, the automaker
or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) may implement
a mandatory recall to correct the issues.
Some recent auto recalls in the news include:
Takata airbags: Perhaps the most famous recall to date, millions upon millions of vehicles
have been recalled due to defective Takata airbags that explode somewhat
randomly, shooting sharp metal into the driver or passengers. Several
mass tort lawsuits are underway to seek justice and compensation for the
10+ people who have died and the others who have been injured.
Volkswagen diesel engines: Countless Volkswagen owners were cheated by the automaker when it was revealed
that their “clean” diesel engines were putting more smog into
the air than most other brands. A cheat device had been installed into
the engines that fabricated emission test results. Mass torts were created
due to the fact that people were paying for a clean diesel engine but
never got one.
GM software bug: In early autumn 2016, GM announced that a software bug in its car’s
onboard computers could actually switch off safety systems, disabling
airbags and seatbelts without warning. Although no injuries were initially
reported, a 4+ million car recall was issued around the world, most of
the cars in the U.S.
