Toyota flop, Tesla top? New callback-statistics show record levels

Although the Figures in the record year of 2014 have not been achieved, but the rear of the car manufacturers call moving in the year 2019, and in the first half of 2020 at a very high level. According to calculations by the Center of Automotive Management (CAM) in Bergisch Gladbach, Germany were called back to the reference market of the USA in the total year 2019 37.5 million Cars because of safety problems. "The number of the recalled vehicles, the global manufacturer amounts between 2019 and 2020, (1. Half-year) to 55 million Cars. The recall rates reach 219 per cent (2019), or 266 per cent (in 2020) at a very high level. Thus, an all-time high is reached-negative record between 2014 and 2019, with recalls of more than 250 million passenger Cars in the U.S. alone," explains study leader Professor Stefan Bratzel.

recalls affect even young timer

A ratio of 266 percent means that the average of the last years of two and a half more vehicles in the workshops have been recalled, as the manufacturers have produced in a given year . Part of the return related calls even on cars that are already classics, such as in the case of the million-times Takata-Airbag-rear of the last years call. CAM car recalls in the USA: the average of the last years of two and a half more cars in the garages were recalled, as the manufacturer in the respective year of new cars produced

what is striking is the high number of of safety-relevant feedback, in which, at least potentially, human lives are in danger. Here, German, but mostly American and Japanese manufacturers cut poorly, show Bratzels data:

  • Ford led vehicles, therefore, a Defect in the 6-speed automatic transmission of the F-150 to a recall of 1.26 million, since the gear could turn at any speed, suddenly in the first gear.
  • "The largest recall in the case of Subaru (1.30 million vehicles) relates to a faulty brake light, followed by a Problem with an engine control unit (466.205 vehicles)", lists Bratzel.
  • Also, German manufacturers reported increasing callback rates. "So alone Daimler with a total of 1.41 million had to be vehicles nearly three times as many vehicles in the workshop and ranked as the year before. In the case of BMW , among other things, defective Airbags were responsible for an increase in the recall rate of 62 to 286 per cent," says the car expert.

Toyota's record recall rate

it is Particularly striking in the first half of the year 2020, a rate of 55 percent at Toyota. Also, Honda and Nissan have rates of more than 400 percent. The use of identical components in the various model ranges of manufacturers with high production, why callback numbers so fast rising: it Is used a series of numbers explained, the same component, such as an Airbag control device, in different parts of the model are then the same from the small station wagon or SUV cars to Family around the world, millions of cars affected. At Toyota, is a faulty control caused the unit to ensure that the Airbags and/or pretensioners in the event of an accident, not be triggered can be - 2,9 million cars in the workshop. At Honda defects in the Airbags were also, once again, for the biggest recall of the Japanese responsible, in the first half of the year, the manufacturer had to place a call back to a total of 2.76 million vehicles.

callback-expert criticizes "banana development"

study leader Stefan Bratzel talks of a "banana development" of the product "Mature customer". "The high recall of the last few years mark the enormous change in pressure on the industry to pay. And the safety-related recalls represent only the tip of the iceberg," says Bratzel. The loss of the customer and the Image of the manufacturer. Autopilot failed?

This aspect to be considered in a differentiated manner, particularly in the case of Japanese manufacturers, there is, at the latest, after the Disaster of Toyota because of allegedly unsafe floor mats or not to brake cars - a significantly higher sensitivity for callbacks, without whose number correlates with a high risk for motorists. Even the spectacular and protracted recall of General Motors , which a few years ago millions of vehicles due to defective ignition switches were recalled, and consumer advocates assumptions unofficially, around 300 deaths in connection with the issue, is the real risk of the motorists in the end, given the number of vehicles and kilometres driven in proportion to the normal accident risks in daily car travel is very low.

Tesla has a good rate - not calling, but even in the case of design errors back to

be Careful, you must also evaluate the good performance of Tesla. The Kraftfahrt-Bundesamt (KBA) in its recall database, only three safety-related recalls in the case of Tesla, two of the Model s and the Model X. The results (recall rate 2019: only 35 percent), not only due to the low variety of models, with a correspondingly low error-potentiation, but also by the simple fact that Americans avoid, even with obvious design defects, recalls. So, there were several cases - one of which is documented on Video where the Tesla Model 3, due to a construction fault, a rain water-filled bumpers during the drive demolition. A recall Tesla was not yet necessary. Tesla also performs callbacks also "over the air" in the Form of Software Updates. This happened, for example, in the Model after several fire incidents . Although is also likely to be the actual risk for motorists is ultimately low, but the recall practice can distort the data in comparison with other manufacturers. Because such Software modifications are not only influence by the customer and documented, but do not appear in the official recall statistics.
