The Center for Auto Safety (CAS) was founded in 1970 by Consumers Union and Ralph Nader as a Washington, D.C.-based lobbying group focused on the United States automotive industry.
CAS counts numerous far-reaching efforts among its successes:
"Lemon laws" enacted in all 50 states
State laws requiring auto manufacturers to disclose "hidden" warranties to consumers
The Firestone tire recall
The Ford Pinto recall due to its dangerous gas tank design
Exposure of a potentially lethal gas tank design in General Motors pickup trucks
Improved U.S. highway safety standards administered by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)
