What is a Silent Recall?
Ever heard of a silent recall? You probably have not—and that’s because these are repairs that manufacturers do to products only if a customer complains about the problem. Even though the manufacturer is aware of the defect, they won’t repair it unless the consumer complains.
Silent Recalls are Dangerous for Consumers
Silent recalls are not an accepted industry practice, but they happen far too often. Manufacturers of various types of products are guilty of the practice, including automakers. This leaves thousands of American motorists unaware of the defect in their cars.
In other cases, an auto manufacturer will only a conduct recall in one region. This is also a problem, as it leaves consumers outside the region unaware and unable to get the repairs needed to keep their vehicles safe.
If your vehicle has a defect for which the automaker has not issued a recall, you do have options. Check the internet for other reports of similar problems that you may be having with your car. Then contact the manufacturer to ask for a repair. If the manufacturer refuses to repair your car under the warranty, call WCLG.
