Do you rely on hailing your local Uber or Lyft driver in order to get around? If so, you may want to reconsider your dependency on the ride-share companies. According to a new Consumer Report, any of these vehicles have open recalls. Not only does this put you and your driver in danger, but also endangers everyone else on the road. While some of these recalls are not that big of an issue, some can actually lead to serious injuries. One of the cars in the survey had a total of 8 open recalls. One of which was for the engine. It has been reported to randomly stall. Imagine breaking down in the middle of 1604 during rush hour in San Antonio. Not only does this ruin your whole schedule, it greatly increases your chances of being in a crash.
While these companies promise you peace of mind, but then fail to address their employees having serious defects affecting their cars. While this report may not reflect the national market, it is important to think twice before pulling up your Uber app. While overlooking some recalls might not seem like a big deal in the grand scheme of things, it can end up having serious consequences for the public in general. We need to regulate these rideshare apps. Making sure their drivers have safe vehicles should be the companies biggest priority. Not only for the safety of their driver but for their customers as well.
