DOT/NHTSA RIN: 2127-AL60 Publication ID: Fall 2015 
Title: ●Defect and Noncompliance Notification 

Under the agency's regulation, 49 CFR part 577, NHTSA requires manufacturers of motor vehicles and motor vehicle equipment to inform owners, dealers, and distributors about defects related to motor vehicle safety or a noncompliance with the federal motor vehicle safety standards and the remedy that the manufacturer will provide for the defect or noncompliance. In the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21) Congress expanded the remedies available to manufacturers of replacement equipment to include the remedy of refunding the purchase price of equipment. This rulemaking amends part 577 to conform to the revised remedy provisions in 49 U.S.C. 30120, Remedies for Defects and Noncompliance.
