National Highway Traffic Safety AdministrationA joint letter from the car rental industry was delivered to the NHTSA last week,  responding to the release of information obtained from Chrysler and General Motors from a November 2010 Audit Query. The Audit Query related to how rental car companies respond to recall notices from the automobile manufacturers.

The information provided by Ford, Chrysler and General Motors to NHTSA in response to the NHTSA Audit Query questions does not accurately reflect the performance of the car rental industry. Instead, the reported data understates the frequency and speed with which the car rental companies have been and are responding to such notices.
