Newest Auto Recall Breaks Annual Recall Record

Monday’s recall from many different auto dealers has pushed this year’s recall totals to 31.4 million vehicles. This recall total breaks the previous recall record of 30.8 million vehicles back in 2004, which was an annual total. We are only 6 months into 2014 and have already broken an annual total. The 31.4 million vehicles is also more vehicles that have been sold in the United States this year.

The latest recall is a defective part made by the Takata Corporation, which is used by many auto dealers in their cars. This has amplified the problem as many different automakers are using the same parts from third party manufacturers to cut their own costs. Their two defective parts, the Takata air bag inflator and their ignition switch, are responsible for roughly 578,000 vehicles. This news is not good for the industry and consumer confidence in their products.

Tesla Scores Victories in NJ and NY

Electric Vehicle automaker Tesla has scored some major victories in the last week toward selling their vehicles directly to consumers. Earlier this month, the New Jersey Assembly Consumer Affairs Committee voted unanimously to allow Tesla to sell vehicles at four company owned stores in the state. Earlier this week, New Jersey’s General Assembly passed a bill that would make that plan a reality. Next step for the bill is the state Senate and finally Governor Chris Christie to sign it into a law.

In New York, Tesla also recorded another victory this week when Governor Andrew Cuomo signed pro-Tesla legislation into law. This legislation not only allows Tesla to keep its five company-owned stores, but also allows for “additional Tesla retail locations be established under a strengthened dealer franchise law.” “New York’s franchised auto dealers and manufacturers as well as innovative companies like Tesla are critical to our state’s economy. This bill ensures that both sides will thrive and be able to grow the market for cutting edge zero emission vehicles,” Governor Cuomo commented.
