It requires rental car companies to fíx deadly safety defects before renting recalled vehicles to their customers. This book is a blow-by-blow account of the extraordinary lawsuit that led to the Act. In his introduction, Ralph Nader calls it "the gripping story of two young women whose promising lives were snuffed out in a fiery, traumatic instant collision by their Chrysler PT Cruiser with a semi-truck on a California highway. Death by Rental Car documents "the tenacious effort by their parents and attorneys to hold accountable Enterprise, the rental car company that ignored a government recall for a lethal defect, and Chrysler, the manufacturer that made the car. Death by Rental Car follows the Houck case from its tragic beginning to its inspiring conclusion. Underscoring the need for strong legislative and regulatory action to stop companies from putting profits before the lives of their customers, the book reveals in shocking detail the bare-knuckle tactics used by corporations to discourage lawsuits brought by victims of unsafe products and their survivors.
