Mechanical Defects Statistics and Facts
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration describes “motor vehicle safety” as:
“The performance of a motor vehicle or motor vehicle equipment in a way that protects the public against unreasonable risk of accidents occurring because of the design, construction, or performance of a motor vehicle, and against unreasonable risk of death or injury in an accident, and includes nonoperational safety of a motor vehicle.”
Some examples of safety defects reported by the NHTSA include: loss of air pressure in brake systems, steering components that result in partial or complete loss of control, defective wheels, “wiring system problems that result in a fire or loss of lighting,” defective air bags, windshield wipers that operate improperly, and “critical vehicle components that break, fall apart or separate from the vehicle, causing potential loss to persons inside or outside the vehicle.” Defects that are not safety-related include cosmetic imperfections, “ordinary wear of equipment” that has been subjected to reasonable inspections, maintained and replacements, and radios or air conditioners that are not functioning as expected. The NHTSA conducts investigations that are comprised of four steps including an initial screening, an analysis of petitions for “defect investigations,” an investigation and finally recall management.
The US Department of Transportation National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that there were 15,000 tire- and wheel-related crashes in 2015. 10,000 crashes were brake-related, 2,000 were steering, suspension, transmission or engine related, and 17,000 crashes were unknown vehicle-related problems. In total, there were 44,000 vehicle-related critical reasons that caused crashes. The NHTSA reported that there were 322 fatalities involving a large truck 2016.
