Vehicle, Engine, and Equipment Recalls for car and light trucks

Overview

Vehicle, engine, and equipment manufacturers are required to design and build their vehicles, engines, and equipment to meet emission standards for the useful life of the vehicle, engine or equipment specified by law. Under Section 207 of the Clean Air Act, if EPA determines that a substantial number of vehicles, engines, or equipment in a class or category do not meet emission standards in actual use even though they are properly maintained and used, EPA can require the manufacturer to recall and fix the affected products. Manufacturers may, and often do, initiate recalls without a recall order from EPA as part of a customer satisfaction effort or to preempt an ordered recall from the Agency.

Number of Recalls Issued

Manufacturers are required to report certain defects they find to EPA if they affect emission-related parts. Many times the discovery of these defects leads to voluntary recalls or service campaigns. Manufacturers are also required to report to EPA all emission-related voluntary recalls. EPA issues periodic compliance reports that include general information on recall numbers. These reports can be found at http://epa.gov/otaq/hwy.htm. Below is a snapshot of recalls issued for calendar years 2009-2011:

Industry Number of Recalls Vehicles/Engines/Equipment
Affected
LD Vehicles and Trucks 134 14,230,767
On-highway Motorcycles 2 6,172
HD Engines 31 620,940
Recreational Vehicles 13 38,013
