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.

A major automaker is under fire following a 17-year-old girl’s death in a 2002 Ford Escape last January.
