What To Do When You Receive A Recall Notice
What To Do When You Receive A Recall Notice

As you may have noticed, we have written several posts recently regarding automobile recalls taking place throughout the United States. Whether your vehicle is currently under recall, or you’re discovering these recalls for the first time, it never hurts to take the time to fully understand what you should do in the event that you need to have a recall addressed. Many drivers feel confused and even scared when they receive a recall notice for first time, even though problems such as these can be addressed quickly and easily.

As a first step, you should always take the time to read any recalls you have received. Under no circumstances should you ever ignore a recall you receive. This is a surefire way to end up with a serious automobile problem on your hands that can snowball into injury to yourself or others.

Automobile Recalls and The Law

When you receive your recall notice, your automobile manufacturer is required by law to explain fully the steps that will be taken to address the problem at hand. Also, information will be provided which details whether or not the recall is considered mandatory or voluntary. According to federal law, your recall must be repaired free of charge, so you should always follow up with your car dealer to learn more about your options.

It is also incredibly important to remember that cars can still be bought and sold that have active recalls on them. With this in mind, you should always check the VIN number of a used car you have purchased with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in order to ensure that the vehicle is safe!
