Consumers to see more recalls as auto technology becomes more complex: analysts

Toronto -

Nissan has joined the growing list of automakers recalling their vehicles, with a recall of more than 6,000 trucks and minivans in Canada to fix problems with brake pedals and fuel gauges.
Industry analysts say recalls will become more commonplace as new vehicles incorporate more complex technology.
Analyst Dennis DesRosiers says automakers have been making their vehicles increasingly sophisticated in response to new regulations for safety, emissions and fuel efficiency.
He predicts this will lead to more and bigger recalls over the next 10 years.
Vehicle companies are also stepping up their safety initiatives in response to the regulatory pressure on Toyota due to a massive global recall of its products.
General Motors, Chrysler and Honda have also issued recalls recently to deal with safety issues in their vehicles.

Organizations: Toyota, General Motors, Honda

    KISS - Keep It Simple Stupid. technology fails, computers crash, connectors corrode, none of these newer cars will be troublefree in 10 years time, they will ALL have major amounts of problems, domestics and imports alike, they all embrace the same technologies. What's worse is that most of these components are made offshore and substandard to save every possible cent, furthermore, they are NOT tested properly. Every manufacturer is guilty. Soon, the older, simpler cars will be in demand.
