BMW agrees to pay $3M fine for late reporting of recalls
In levying the fine, NHTSA found that "BMW appears to maintain a practice, by design or habit, in which it provides little information in its initial (recall) filings." Of the instances which garnered fines, however, BMW said all but one of them concerned its motorcycles, not its cars. The NHTSA said that BMW would eventually provide the information but only after what the NHTSA termed an "inordinate amount of time."
To address the issue, BMW is changing its methods for how it provides information to the government and how it deals with recalls.
