Feds open probe into rental cars
The Center for Auto Safety is the nation’s premier independent, member driven, non-profit consumer advocacy organization dedicated to improving vehicle safety, quality, and fuel economy on behalf of all drivers, passengers, and pedestrians.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has opened an investigation into how quickly rental car companies get recalled vehicles repaired.
NHTSA said in a statement posted on its website today that it is looking at nearly 3 million recalled vehicles, from General Motors Co., Ford Motor Co. and Chrysler Group LLC, that were sold to rental car companies. The review covers 29 separate models built between 2000 and 2010.
