Washington, D.C. — September 30, 2015 — It’s already crucial for auto manufacturers to conduct recalls properly and follow government guidelines. However, legislation announced earlier this month revealed possible future penalties for manufacturers that are even higher.
According to the Detroit News, maximum fines for delayed recalls under this new plan would increase to $70 million. The same bill would come with other related provisions that would potentially raise the safety budget of that National Highway Traffic Safety Administration by more than $14 million within the next five years.
Preparing for these possible changes could require efforts on the part of manufacturers to pay even closer attention to the effectiveness of their recalls. Likewise, dealers can invest in recall services that communicate important issues to the customer base quickly.
