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.
