Safety Institute Places 2012 Ford Focus on Top of “Watch List”

NBC News reports that The Safety Institute has released its quarterly Watch List which includes the “Top 15 Potential Vehicle Defects.” The list is derived from NHTSA reports of user complaints, primarily that the vehicle’s “electric power steering shuts down randomly and intermittently” and that “delaminating steering wheels” can “lacerate drivers’ hands.” NBC notes that NHTSA is not currently investigating either of the issues. Sean Kane, founder and president of the board of directors of The Safety Institute, says the purpose of the list is for “regulators and manufacturers to examine unusual patterns of claims and resolve them before they become major crises.”

From the news release of the American Association for Justice.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
