Analysis Finds Uber, Lyft Do Not Do Enough to Address Unfixed, Open Recalls

Contributor Tanya Mohn writes in Forbes that an analysis by Consumer Reports of “the safety records of nearly 94,000 vehicles in New York City and the Seattle area has found that Uber and Lyft do little to address unfixed or open recalls,” with one in six of the vehicles “registered to those two companies…carry[ing] unaddressed safety defects.” Consumer Reports “said the analysis was undertaken to get a snapshot of the industry’s open recall rate, but might not reflect the national market.” It also “said the rate of open recalls for registered ride-hail vehicles was estimated to be about the same for all vehicles on the road.” Uber, “in particular, the report said ‘encourages and reminds drivers to get recalls fixed, and it identifies and blocks vehicles on its platform that have some of the most dangerous open recalls, ones with ‘DO NOT DRIVE’ warnings from the manufacturer or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.’”

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...)
