Over the last few years, auto manufacturers have recalled millions of cars, trucks, vans and SUVs because of vehicle defects. In fact, in 2013 alone, auto makers announced 632 recalls involving some 22 million vehicles. The year before that, 16.4 million vehicles were recalled in 581 action, the New York Times reports.
While auto makers initiated about 15 million of the 2013 recalls, more than 7 million were recalled after the government agency began investigations, generally following consumer complaints.
