What can happen to auto parts?

Our vehicles are made up of thousands of parts, and a problem with only one of them can lead to major problems on the roadways. The news has been filled with stories over the last few years about faulty auto parts. Vehicles and vehicle parts are often faulty due to:

  1. Defective designs that are not caught during the testing and inspection phase.
  2. Manufacturing errors that occur after a product has been designed and approved. This can include improper assembly or inferior material usage.
  3. Warning defects occur when a vehicle or part is not properly labeled with appropriate warnings to consumers about any dangers associated with the product.

Some of the most commonly defective auto parts include:

  • Airbags
  • Seatbelts
  • Tires
  • Gas tanks
  • Accelerator
  • Lighting
  • Fuel systems
  • Electrical parts
  • Brakes
  • Suspension
  • Engine
  • Powertrain
  • And more

For the latest reporting year, there were 30.7 million automotive units recalled in the US.

Who can be held liable for injuries or fatalities?

You should always check safercar.gov to ensure your vehicle is not on any recall list. If it is, you need to ensure you take the vehicle to the dealer to get fixed. Liability could fall on the following in the event an injury or death occurs due to the faulty product:

  • The car manufacturer was responsible for the overall design and distribution of the vehicle.
  • The parts manufacturer that created the part that caused the problem. In many cases, parts manufacturers are a different company than the car manufacturer.
  • Other parties that we involved in the chain of distribution that could have damaged the part.
