Tech/Engineering - Automotive / Cars & Trucks
English term or phrase: mandated vehicles
Not much context, I'm afraid: I have this one as a segment in a Trados file. Obviously it's some kind of heading but there is no reference file so I can't trace what is listed underneath.

The source text is for an online diagnostics & repair resource of an automobile manufacturer. The next segments in the Trados are in the form: model name - build year - reported technical problem.

The resource refers to a range of vehicles including mostly passenger cars plus some pickups and vans.

Thanks in advance for your input.

referring to a recall or repair of a group of vehicles


Explanation:
The mention of 'reported technical problem' makes me think that the vehicles are possibly being sorted out according to malfunctions needing repair, those being *mandated vehicles*. When there occurs a dangerous flaw in manufacturing, a recall can be issued for specific *mandated vehicles*.

Or . . . it could be what Orientalhorizon suggests ~ vehicles that meet mandated requirements!
