Class action lawsuits have become such a major problem for the major auto corporations, that it has literally changed the way business is done. They had tightened all controls to a point we’re it is starting to impact all aspects of the industry. There are more and more recalls now in nearly every type of car, and this is all a direct result of the auto manufacturers taking every possible step to protect themselves and their companies.
If I recently took my SUV up in for an oil change and routine maintenance, and while my truck was there it was determined that there was a recall in place for my particular vehicle. As a result, they would not release my SUV until the recall was completed, and they held in there for over a week. They paid for a rental car which I used for the week, but it was very inconvenient and a hassle to deal with.
This is all the result of the many lawsuits that the big three auto corporations are dealing with, and it has definitely changed the way business is done. Now if you have a recall on your vehicle it is almost like a police state where they will hold it against your will until the recall is satisfied. And the volume of recalls has increased drastically, because as soon as there is the slightest possibility of a potential problem then it immediately comes a recall where every vehicle must fix the potential flaw, and everything comes to a grinding halt until that is complete.
