The GM recall and latest problems associated with Toyota vehicles has caused a stir among safety advocates regarding the promptness of recalls and how soon automakers may be aware of problems and potential dangers before they actually announce recalls and associated action in order to fix auto defects.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has begun to investigate the reaction and the time involved in taking action to fix vehicle defects that could pose potential threats, resulting in accidents, injuries and death.
