FCA finds itself again in the headlines for all the wrong reasons. At the same time they reached their $105 million settlement with the NHTSA for mishandling recalls, it has come to light that FCA has been significantly under reported deaths or injuries.

“This represents a significant failure to meet a manufacturer’s safety responsibilities,” NHTSA Administrator Mark Rosekind said in a statement. “NHTSA will take appropriate action after gathering additional information on the scope and causes of this failure.”

In July as part of FCA's punishment for mishandling recalls since 2009, it was decided they must satisfy extra requirements as part of a consent decree. Under the decree FCA is expected to revamp its recall and defect practices, as well as brining in an independent monitor as part of the board.

FCA says this latest discrepancy was found because of the consent decree. Rosekind suggests that FCA’s under-reporting was caused by “a number of problems with FCA’s systems for gathering and reporting Early Warning data.”

Do you guys think that this is purposeful or incompetent?

Under reporting deaths seems like something that you do on purpose.
FCA is pushing back becasue NHTSA is trying to crucify them for older models. FCA is essentially saying they can't be held to current standards and protocols for vehicles that are more then 10 years old and whatnot...
