Lack of New Launches Leaves Ford Playing Catchup with GM

James Hackett spent the last year plotting Ford Motor Co's long-term self-driving car strategy. In his first week as chief executive, he has more immediate concerns: stopping a skid in North American sales and fending off a market share grab by resurgent archrival General Motors Co. The U.S. No. 2 automaker is stuck in a product drought that shows no signs of easing until 2019, according to two sources who track Detroit's launch plans.

Analysts Wary Over Fiat Chrysler's Emissions but Say Not as Bad as VW

Any potential fines Fiat Chrysler may need to pay to settle a U.S. civil lawsuit over diesel emissions will unlikely top $1 billion, analysts said, adding the case appeared less serious than at larger rival Volkswagen. The U.S. government filed a civil lawsuit on Tuesday accusing FCA of illegally using software to bypass emission controls in 104,000 vehicles sold since 2014, which it said led to higher than allowable levels of nitrogen oxide (NOx) that are blamed for respiratory illnesses.

U.S. Probes Whether Hyundai, Kia Recalled Engines Fast Enough

The U.S. government is investigating whether Hyundai and Kia moved quickly enough to recall more than 1.6 million cars and SUVs because the engines can stall, increasing the risk of a crash. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said it’s looking into three recalls by the Korean brands. The agency also said it’s investigating whether the automakers followed safety reporting requirements.

OSHA Delays Injury and Illness Electronic Reporting Date

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is delaying the July 1, 2017 deadline by which certain dealerships must electronically file their 2016 employee workplace injury and illness records. Dealerships required to report electronically by filing Form 300A or equivalent include:

  • Commercial truck dealerships with 20 to 249 employees at a single "establishment." "Establishment" is defined by OSHA as a single location where business is conducted or where services or industrial operations are performed.
  • Light-duty and commercial truck dealerships with 250 or more employees at a single "establishment."

Note that light-duty dealerships with fewer than 250 employees at a single "establishment" are required to record workplace injuries and illnesses, but are not required to submit Form 300A to OSHA.

Until a new deadline is announced, covered dealerships should not file any Form 300As. OSHA may be considering the possibility of doing away with the electronic reporting mandate altogether. For more information on existing federal injury and illness recordkeeping and reporting mandates, visit NADA's injury and illness recordkeeping page.
