FCA Was Just Handed A $70 Million Civil Penalty By The NHTSA

FCA

The American automaker is in some hot water.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has just handed Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) a $70 million civic penalty for the brand's failure to properly report death and injury data. With its Early Warning Reporting system, the automaker admitted to deficiencies, which is what the NHTSA uses to spot potential trends that could warrant a recall and other safety defects. FCA has blamed a problem with its database software that has been in place since 2003. The issue went unnoticed for numerous years and was first spotted in July of this year.
