NHTSA Drops a $3 Million Fine on BMW for Untimely Reporting of Recalls

NHTSA Drops a $3 Million Fine on BMW for Untimely Reporting of Recalls
FEBRUARY 11, 2012

U.S. federal safety regulators have slapped a $3 million (€2.3 million) fine on BMW North America for delays in reporting and not providing enough information on its safety defects and recalls. The fine will be paid into the Treasury Department's General Fund.
Automakers are required by law to notify the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) within five business days of identifying a safety defect or noncompliance and to promptly conduct a recall.

The NHTSA said it launched an investigation on the matter back in December of 2010 examining 16 BMW recalls from that year. The safety agency said it found evidence of a number of instances where BMW did not report a known safety defect within five days while the filings were also missing important details.
