Safety recalls have dominated the auto industry news over the last 18 months with millions of vehicles being recalled because of defects ranging from defective ignition switches to exploding airbags. In 2013, 22 million vehicles were recalled in 632 total recalls according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Both were substantial increases from 2012 when 581 recalls were implemented that included nearly 16. 4 million vehicles. During 2013, Toyota® was the vehicle manufacturer with the most recalls covering 5.3 million vehicles. The vehicle recall situation was so bad that the auto industry recalled more cars than it sold in 2013.
