US Car Rental Companies Support New Legislation

Hertz, Enterprise Holdings, Avis Budget and Dollar Thrifty have all agreed to support US legislation banning the renting of recalled vehicles, as has the American Car Rental Association.

While car dealers are prohibited from selling a recalled automobile, rental car companies are not barred from renting or selling one. The new Senate bill would require rental companies to ground a recalled vehicle no later than 24 hours after the rental company gets the recall notice.

Rental companies will have up to 48 hours for recalls that include more than 5,000 vehicles in their fleet.

The proposed law would also give the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration authority to investigate and police the recall safety practices of car rental companies.
