Rental Companies Rent Out Recalled Cars

In a recent survey conducted by federal regulators of safety, it was discovered that several popular rental car companies do not repair their cars that have been recalled. It was reported that fewer than a third of recalled rental cars are fixed within the first month of the recall, and only half are repaired within a year.

The safety regulators estimated that tens of thousands of drivers using rental cars have unknowingly been driving recalled cars. In one tragic story, two sisters rented a vehicle that had been recalled due to a power steering liquid leak that was shown to cause fires. Their rental car caught fire underneath the hood, causing the girls to hit a semi-truck. Both girls died immediately.

Defective vehicles are extremely dangerous, and anyone who has one should take every measure to quickly get it repaired. If you or someone you love has suffered injuries due to an automotive defect, please contact the Waukesha auto defect lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® at 800-242-2874.
