That for-hire car you're climbing into - how safe is it?

More and more of us are climbing into for-hire cars to get where we are going - into a taxi, or an Uber or Lyft car. More and more, people are discovering that these vehicles have shady histories.

An investigative report by a Seattle TV station looked into the issue of for-hire car safety, focusing in particular on the issue of safety recalls.

When you are informed of a safety recall for your personal car, you probably respond to it. But the KING-5 investigative squad found that a third of the for-hire cars in the study failed to respond.

The station compared two data lists:

  • Thousands of vehicle identification numbers (VINs) of for-hire cars in New York City, Seattle, Houston and Tampa
  • The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's (NHTSA) database for recalls
