Sign This Petition to HELP FORCE RENTAL CAR COMPANIES TO FIX RECALLED CARS

Tell Enterprise Rent-a-Car to stop fighting against a law that would ban renting recalled cars.


force rental companies to not rent cars with recallsThis is a sad story that started with two young sisters who were killed in an Enterprise rental car that had recall issues.  It should have been taken off the lot to be repaired but never was. 

Rosemary Shahan, president of Consumers for Auto Reliability and Safety (carconsumers.org), says lobbyists for rental car companies told her last year at a meeting in the State Capitol Building in Sacramento that their companies sometimes needed to rent cars under recall, particularly during busy holiday weekends.

In just a matter of days, Congress is set to consider a new law that would force rental car companies to fix recalled cars, but Enterprise Rent-a-Car is lobbying against it -- and hard. Enterprise's opposition could block the bill, allowing Enterprise to continue to ignore car recalls like the one that killed Cally Houck's daughters.

Cally Houck has dedicated herself to making sure that rental car companies fix recalled vehicles so no one else loses their life to rental cars that are known to be unsafe. She says it's critical to stop Enterprise's opposition now, before they kill the law. Cally started a petition on Change.org asking Enterprise Rent-a-Car CEO Andrew Taylor to stop opposing the law to force rental car companies to repair recalled vehicles

Deb - I had no idea this was going on.  One would think that any business would stay on top of keeping their customers safe and all their property maintained.  Unreal.  I am now headed over to check out the links.

Debbie, I am never surprised when a company jeopardizes safety for profits.

Hi Debra, I can't even imagine a company not wanting to keep their customers safe.  I didn't know about this until I read your post.  Thanks for creating awareness!

Debra, I hadn't heard of this.  Thanks for bringing it to our attention.  I'm heading over to sign my name, for sure.  Safety has to come first over profits.

Debra, somewhere I have heard the motto, "Do the right thing." I believe it applies in this situation.

Thanks for sharing this information.  I had no idea that car rental companies could continue to rent cars that are subject to recall.

I had no idea about this either and it is a DISGRACE.  No one should be driving a car that has been recalled for ANY REASON.  Thanks for your comments.

Amazingly tragic.  The cost of doing business for some corporations seems to be cheaper to pay out a wrongful death suit then to recall a portion of their fleet.  Sad, but true.
