Honda has been fined $70 million for their failure to inform the U.S. government of injuries and warranty claims associated with defects in their vehicles. The auto manufacturer failed to report more than 1,700 injuries and deaths associated with these defects. As part of this settlement, Honda will also need to submit to stricter government oversight in the future.
By law, auto manufacturers are required to report information regarding warranty issues and injury/death reports associated with car accidents. By failing to provide this information, Honda may have impacted the NHTSA’s ability to identify vehicle defects in a timely manner.
These violations were discovered in late 2014 during the investigation into defective air bags which resulted in serious injuries to drivers and passengers across the country.
