Research: Mercedes-Benz the Automaker With the Fewest Vehicle Recalls in the US

According to a recent study on safety recalls in the US, German automaker Mercedes-Benz has recalled the fewest vehicles among all car makers.

US automaker General Motors, which is currently involved in a recall process related to 12 deaths is on the third place among car makers with the lowest recall rate in the past three decades. However, the recent recall of 1.6 million vehicles due to faulty ignition switches, has brought to light the fact that the automaker has “inhibited recalls from being issued sooner,” iSeeCars said in a press statement.

Overall, the recall rates “give some indication of the quality of the automakers’ manufacturing processes,” said Phong Ly, chief executive and co-founder of iSeeCars, in a telephone interview.

iSeeCars, located in Massachusetts, has analyzed 15 major automakers in the US, the recalls made starting with 1985 until 2014 and the vehicles sold between 1980 and 2013. Daimler’s Mercedes-Benz had a recall rate of 0.41 (41 vehicles recalled for every 100 cars sold), followed by Mazda Motor Corp with 0.55, Nissan Motor with 0.71 and Subaru with 0.73.

Regarding the percentage of the recall campaigns which took place within three years from a new vehicle being sold, BMW had 232 recalls starting with 1985 and 87% of them involved vehicles that were less than 3 years old. Nissan came on the second place with 85% and GM followed with a little under 85%.
