Volvo, owned by China’s Zhejiang Geely Holding Group, has been fined $1.5 million by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration after failing to report safety defects… well, sort of.

The defects were apparently occurred before Ford’s sale of Volvo to Geely and occurred in 2010. Apparently, Ford nor Volvo notified the NHTSA of a recall.

“With millions of vehicles traveling our highways every single day, we take our responsibility to safeguard the driving public very seriously and we expect automakers to do the same,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood. “Manufacturers are required to handle any safety issues both quickly and appropriately.”

The recalls involve about 32,000 vehicles.
