US agency says Fiat Chrysler failed to report deaths and injuries as required
Fiat Chrysler is back in hot water with U.S. auto safety regulators.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said Tuesday that the company failed to report some deaths, injuries and other information to the agency as required by law.
Following disclosure Tuesday of Chrysler’s transgression, Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx, whose department includes NHTSA, told reporters he wants to call a meeting in Washington with all auto industry CEOs to address a long list of failures to meet reporting requirements. In the past several years, the agency has fined Fiat Chrysler, Toyota, Honda, Hyundai, General Motors, Ford and others for failing to follow the law.
