Safety concerns over recalled Uber cars in Singapore

Uber has said it could have done more to pull unsafe cars off the road in Singapore, amid allegations it rented out faulty vehicles to drivers. The Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday that Uber was aware of a Honda Vezel recall when it purchased more than 1,000 Vezels that were then leased to drivers. According to the Wall Street Journal, Uber subsequently bought 1,000 of the models and leased them to drivers in Singapore through its affiliate car-leasing company, Lion City Rental. In a statement to the BBC, Uber said: "As soon as we learned of a Honda Vezel from the Lion City Rental fleet catching fire, we took swift action to fix the problem." It did not provide details of what action was taken. The safety fears are the latest damaging development to hit Uber in recent months.
