- Manufacturing of the car
- Warnings provided with the car
- Generally, a car manufacturer may be liable for damages caused by a defective vehicle if:
- The manufacturer knew, or should have known, that there was a danger with the design of the car
- That even though the design was safe, there was a danger in the manufacturing process
- Or, while the design and manufacturing process were safe, a warning was needed to alert drivers to a specific issue, and it was not provided
