GM may be grabbing attention, but 11 others have recalled vehicles too

YOUNGSTOWN

It’s only July, yet vehicle manufacturers have already recalled more vehicles in 2014 than any other year in history.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports there have been recalls for 37.5 million cars this year in the U.S. The previous record was 30.8 million in 2004, according to the NHTSA.

While faulty ignition switches at General Motors Co. have received the majority of the attention, Ford, Subaru, Nissan, Chrysler, Hyundai, Mazda, BMW, Toyota, Honda, Lexus, and Kia have all had recalls in the last month on some model or part, according to the NHTSA.

GM vehicles make up about 2⁄3 of the vehicles that have been recalled with its number at more than 25 million recalls in the U.S.

“There is more awareness of GM in this area because it’s human nature for people to focus on local impact,” said Steve Chos, executive vice president of the Automobile Dealers Association of Eastern Ohio.

It seems other automakers are being proactive scheduling recalls now while they know they won’t get as much attention because of GM, said Akshay Anand, analyst for Kelly Blue Book.

In addition, recalls are more likely now in the auto industry over even minor problems, he said.

"I did it, but little Johnny did it too"! How much more "juvenile" of an excuse can GM give? Trying to minimize their outright lack of concern for safety of the buying public, by saying "well everyone else is doing it"! I am continually amazed at the journalists who write these articles and how they must believe that the readers don't have enough intelligence to "see through" their veiled attempts at protecting one of Husseins "pet projects". They have lost all credibility, as far as I am concerned, by providing cover for all of the failings of this administration, even at this level!
