GM seeks to avoid Takata recalls for fourth straight year


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.

Jason Levine, executive director of the Center for Auto Safety, a nonprofit consumer group, said NHTSA appears to be paralyzed in the GM case. Information provided by GM thus far isn’t sufficient for NHTSA to approve the petition, said Levine, who questions the validity of some tests done for GM. He questioned the need for a delay by NHTSA in making a decision. “There’s millions of these things on the road. It is not right. It’s bad policy, bad practice,” Levine said. “It only engenders concern and fear potentially unnecessarily. NHTSA needs to do its job.”
