Problem: Due to the significant number of NHTSA and OEM recall status errors and publishing delays, it is nearly impossible for dealers to confidently know the accurate daily recall status on all of their new and used, in-brand and off-brand vehicle inventory. This increases the likelihood that dealers will inadvertently sell vehicles with open safety recalls – even in-brand vehicles – resulting in increased liability if a sold vehicle is involved in an accident attributed to an unrepaired safety recall.
Safety recall compliance issues facing today’s auto retailers are complex and require a top-down management commitment. Federal (NHTSA, DEQ, FTC), state and even local regulations affect how dealers must operate with regard to vehicles with open safety recalls, but the first step towards recall management best-practices is to assess where a dealer’s current safety recall management efforts ranks them regarding safety recall compliance and potential liability.
