As automakers turn more and more to integrating electronic systems in their vehicles, the number of recalls launched to correct electronic defects is increasing.
According to The Safety Record, a recent study analyzed the number of electronic-related recalls in the past year. In fact, since July 2010, there have been 722 electronic related recalls. While it is challenging to define electronic recalls since they can encompass a wide variety of defects, when broadly defined, electronic recalls comprised over one-fourth of the total submitted to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) during the past year. Notably, 24 of those recalls included software defects.
