Why Don’t Recalled Cars Get Fixed?
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), more than 25% of recall work is never performed on recalled vehicles. How can this be?
In many cases, recall notices just never make it to the vehicle’s current owners. After a car has been sold, automakers depend on vendors to supply current addresses of the owners, and that information is not always kept up to date.
How do you know if your car has been recalled? Checking the NHTSA database at www.safercar.gov periodically is a good way to ensure you do not miss a recall that might affect your vehicle.
