BMW Fined $3 Million for Late Notice of Safety Defects Violations

This comes as no surprise to many of us who have experienced lack of urgency related to recalls on widely-know defects. This paragraph from the USA Today story was particularly interesting:

"A number of motorcycle models were also recalled. In all but one case where NHTSA claimed that BMW filed late were related to motorcycles."

Unbelievable. It's no wonder why so many people love the product and hate the company...

I gotta agree with the poster below the article, "Wonder how much it costs to put the Roundel on that page?" Effin' hilarious!
