The Government Accountability Office (GAO) has issued a report titled “NHTSA Has Options to Improve the Safety Defect Recall Process” in response to congressional queries about the sufficiency of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA’s) oversight authority and “whether vehicle owners are being effectively motivated to comply with recalls.” While industry stakeholders are apparently satisfied with the safety defect recall process, a few challenges apparently affect recall completion rates, “and thus, the number of defective vehicles that are removed from the road.” Among other matters, GAO recommends modifications to notification letters, enhancements to and publicity for NHTSA’s Website where all recalls are announced, better use of manufacturers’ data, and additional authority from Congress to notify potential used car buyers about recalls.
