Carmakers - recall rate in the United States 1985-2014

Car manufacturers' recall rate in the United States from 1985 to March 2014*

by Statista Research Department, last edited Mar 26, 2014
Carmakers - recall rate in the United States 1985-2014 This statistic displays car sales relative to how many cars were recalled by various car manufacturers in the United States between 1985 and March 2014. General Motors (GM) sold around 153.2 million cars and recalled some 99.3 million units. This figure translates into a moderate recall rate of 0.65. That said, North America's largest automaker recalled a record number of vehicles between January and July 2014, including over two million Chevy Cobalt vehicles. Flaws in the Cobalt have been linked to a number of accidents and at least 13 deaths between 2005 and 2014. A lower recall rate can indicate better manufacturing or quality control and has become a primary issue in the automotive industry. Worldwide, General Motors recalled a staggering 29.6 million vehicles between January 2014 and August 7, 2014. In addition to that, GM confirmed another recall of cars in September 2014, including Cadillac XTS vehicles and Chevrolet Impala sedans, which have been linked to increased fire risk. This latest recall issue is GM's 67th recall campaign in 2014. That year, the number of cars sold in the USA came to around 7.9 million units.
