Advisory Committee on Automation in Transportation, 75920-75921 [2016-26328]

Download as PDF 75920 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 211 / Tuesday, November 1, 2016 / Notices The United States Code for Motor Vehicle Safety (Title 49, Chapter 301) defines motor vehicle safety as ‘‘the performance of a motor vehicle or motor vehicle equipment in a way that protects the public against unreasonable risk of accidents occurring because of the design, construction, or performance of a motor vehicle, and against unreasonable risk of death or injury in an accident, and includes nonoperational safety of a motor vehicle.’’ The Office of Defects Investigations (ODI) has opened many defect investigations into engine stalling and/ or loss of motive power. The majority of investigations resulting in safety recalls involved a complete loss of motive power, frequently accompanied by loss of power-assist to steering and brake systems (the latter conditions not present here). Factors that support recalls to remedy these conditions include a lack of warning or precursor symptoms to the driver; stalling during power-demand situations such as accelerating or to maintain highway speeds/uphill grades; and an inability to immediately ‘‘restart’’ or restore mobility to a stranded vehicle. Absent very high failure rates in new vehicles, NHTSA has not successfully pursued hesitation, reduced engine power modes, or stalling outside the conditions listed above, primarily because these conditions have not been found to demonstrate an unreasonable risk to motor vehicle safety. Experience of harsh shifting and transmission degradation over time would typically fall into this category, even if it leads to an eventual loss of motive power condition. asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 12.0 FINDINGS 1. Of the 2,505 complaints received through September 13, 2016, 1,288 (51%) mention repair cost . . . the single most cited issue 2. The high repair cost motivates many owners to delay repair if one is done at all. The extended warranty/ CA settlement terms contribute to this. 3. Cost of repair motivates some owners to sell un-repaired vehicles w/o disclosing co-mingling problem 4. Transmission failures resulting in LOMP, due to co-mingled fluid, are slowly progressive . . . vibration, shift degradation, slipping, then loss of motive power. 5. While many owners acknowledge noticing shift quality degradation, they did not understand that, if left untended, it could result in loss of motive force. VerDate Sep<11>2014 00:01 Nov 01, 2016 Jkt 241001 6. Three of the four alleged crashes involve pre-event warning symptoms which were ignored and all involved used vehicles that had recently been purchased presumably with a pre-existing fluid co-mingling condition. 13.0 CONCLUSION Based on the foregoing analysis, there is no reasonable possibility that an order concerning the notification and remedy of a safety-related defect would be issued as a result of granting Mr. Oliver’s petition. Therefore, in view of the need to allocate and prioritize NHTSA’s limited resources to best accomplish the agency’s safety mission, the petition is denied.
