$3 million fine on German automaker, BMW

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has announced on Friday, February 10, that the German automaker, BMW, has to pay $3 million in fine as the company has not told about the safety defects earlier than expected and in its full form.

“It’s critical to the safety of the driving public that defects and recalls are reported in short order,” said NHTSA Administrator David Strickland. “NHTSA expects all manufacturers to address automotive safety issues quickly and in a forthright manner.”

NHTSA said, "As part of today's settlement, BMW of North America, LLC and its parent company Bayerische Motoren Werke AG agreed to make internal changes to its recall decision-making process to ensure timely reporting to consumers and the federal government in the future."
