Volvo hit with $1.5M NHTSA fine for delayed recalls
NHTSA gives automakers five days from the time they discover a safety issue to inform the government agency of a recall plan. If a manufacturer misses that window, it can face civil penalties like the one Volvo has agreed to pay. The fine covers all seven recalls. The most NHTSA can charge an automaker is $17.35 million, a figure some have criticized as being laughably low.
