Record-Setting Year For Auto And Truck Recalls

Posted: Updated:

(NBC) 2014 might be a record breaking year for auto recalls in the United States. 

The industry has recalled roughly one out of every 10 vehicles on the road, meaning the auto industry has recalled 24.7 million vehicles so far, leaving it poised to shatter the 30.8 million vehicles recalled in 2004.

Some think General Motors' recent crisis might account for all the precautions.The company is responsible for 13.9 million recalls alone. According to the center for auto safety, recalls might slow down, but a spokeperson says the total could still come in at 35 million.
