Volvo will pay embarrassing safety fine

Volvo, which stakes its name on safety leadership, will pay huge fine for not reporting safety defects.

In a press release today the National Highway Traffic Administration (NHTSA), part of the US Department of Transportation, said that Volvo Cars North America LLC will pay a hefty fine for not reporting safety defects and non-compliances in a timely manner. Automakers paying fines like this is not unknown, but what makes this unusual is that Volvo has for years marketed itself as a safety-first, last, and always automaker.
