Ford Pays $17.5 Million Settlement to NHTSA Over Delayed Recall

The Ford Motor Company recently paid $17.5 million to settle a dispute with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) concerning the company’s failure to launch a needed recall in a timely manner, according to a recent article in Auto Remarketing.

The NHTSA had initially investigated the vehicles after receiving multiple complaints that the throttle was becoming stuck in the “open” position, even after the driver took his or her foot off the accelerator.
