Car Makers Pledge to Share Recall Data with Government
January 18, 2016
Following such disastrous and deadly incidents as Volkswagen’s emissions scandal, GM’s faulty ignition switch recall, and Takata’s airbag recall, several different auto manufacturers have agreed to reform the way they report injuries, fatalities, and defective vehicles to the government.
The agreement between the automakers and the government (which many consider a “historic” agreement), will focus on improving vehicle safety and quality by implementing more proactive safety measures, meeting all current recall completion dates, and changing the way Early Warning Reporting data is shared.
Officials from the National Highway Transportation and Safety Administration have long felt that auto manufacturers are elusive or incompetent when it comes to providing information regarding the safety of the vehicles they produce.
Along with the U.S. Department of Transportation, 18 different auto manufacturers have pledged to work with the government to enhance vehicle safety and improve resolutions for currently recalled vehicles.
The automakers also agreed to collaborate with other auto manufacturers to help ensure that safety concerns and vehicle recalls become a thing of the past.
For example, automakers will share data and statistics with each other regarding best practices for overall vehicle safety. If automakers have access to all current product safety results, they are less likely to manufacture a vehicle that will ultimately be deemed defective.
Automakers have also pledged to work together to encourage the public to have recalled vehicles repaired as soon as possible.
Anthony Foxx, Secretary for the U.S. Department of Transportation, says he feels these changes will help automakers and government agencies catch safety defects before they cause harm to the public.
The 18 automakers that are currently participating in the agreement are:
- Honda (American Division)
- Fiat Chrysler
- General Motors (GM)
- Jaguar/Land Rover

Jeffrey Phillips is truly a brilliant attorney and businessman. I would not hesitate for a moment to contact him if I needed a personal injury attorney in Arizona, you would be fortunate to have him and his team. If you have a car accident, slip and fall in a store, or get punched in the face, call Phillips.
Phillips law group has an amazing staff and i recommend them to everyone.
It’s an Honor and a Privilege to work for a company that cares about its employees and clients for 12 years. I’ve seen Management go out of their way to help someone whether it’s a personal matter or work related. I am also reminded of many occasions where a Client needed urgent help and we as a Team were able to get the person immediate assistance. At Phillips Law we make that happen through Teamwork and a dedication to our profession. I’ve had numerous jobs in several other fields, those were just jobs. This is a home. Many of us have been here for quite a few years, it feels like one large extended family.
A friend of mine recommended Phillips Law and I’m so grateful, because they were so wonderful, so down to earth, so professional. I felt like they were family.
Many companies talk about teamwork but few practice it. Many companies talk about an employee friendly environment but few actually provide it. At Phillips Law Group the foundation of our success is making sure we work as a team and that we work in an environment that allows everyone to thrive and be at their best every day. Our firm understands that in order for the client to have a great experience the people responsible for that client’s case must be given all the necessary tools and encouragement to make that happen. That’s the Phillips Way. As a manager of this firm in charge of several employees as well as directly affecting the client’s experience I take tremendous pride in saying we live by these premises and we work hard to build on them and make them better every day. This is an amazing place because it has amazing people working here!
Kathy Hudson and Donato Giovanatto. Continues to go above and beyond the call of duty. Reaching out to the insurance company about the damage to the vehicle. Forcing them to take responsibility.
My Attorney Sean Davis and his paralegal Hannah Dustin worked on my case. They listened to the problems that I was having with my case and they both got right to work. First they found me a doctor that actually listened to my problems from my car accident and worked quickly to form a plan that was comfortable for me and the doctor. The doctor was the best and after a couple of procedures the pain in my neck was gone. Behind the scenes Sean and Hannah were working hard to get my case settled with the insurance company. They kept in contact with me on all aspects of my case. They settled my case much faster than I expected and for more than I was expecting. If you want two real professional legal people to work on your case, I would highly recommend Sean and Hannah to you. I cannot say enough nice things about these two. Thank you so much, Rickey Hart .
